    According to TUAW

    Sorry, I'm a little late to post this, but it seems like this is something most people would want to read. Just incase you haven't yet changed the password on your iPod/iPhone, this is just one more reason to.

    ALSO,

    Sick of AutoCorrect trying to replace words on you while you are typing? Enter the words you use that AutoCorrect doesn't know into this file. See, there's goo news too

    Your fault for having kids. We tend to do those things.

    If you turn off ssh with services are you still exposed to possible threats?

    I don't think you are if SSH is off, but someone said that the services don't always work correctly, so if you turn ssh off sometimes it gets stuck running.

    Noob having problems changing the password...

    using cyberduck. placed the file passwd in the /usr/bin/
    now, when it says type "/bin/chmod 555/usr/bin/passwd", where do you type that command line?
    and the next command line as well?
    sorry I'm new to this...
    thanks in advance.


    ALSO: I have searched my ASS OFF!!! Please help!!

    haha i agree with the above poster, BUT I'll tell you what i think will work.

    Plug the ipod into your computer and run itunes. I think you have to restore it, but i forgot where i put my ipod in my room and im too lazy to find it.

    Itunes is the first step, the rest you or someone else have to find out

    also this isnt the place to post that. noticed that this thread is stickied, so your post wont ever go away
