    Recently I jailbroke my ipod (2.0) with xWinpwn 0.3 and it worked fine, all went well.
    But everytime i ssh into my ipod it works ok but as soon as i try to copy a file over to my ipod it gives me an unknown error saying "Unable to copy to remote side" But it doesnt do that when i try smaller files. Anyone know how to fix this? Plz and Thanks

    That makes no sense because it is not cydia causing it, its SSH. And my cydia is updated

    Same with me and to the people that keep telling us to update Cydia. THAT WOULDN'T HELP! And we probably already have it updated.

    what ssh client are you using.
    from experience i have found that winscp is the worst at copying large files over because it loses connection easily and obviously when a large file is being copied over it takes longer and so that is more time to lose connection.
    filezilla (http://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client) is the best ssh client in my opinion. it also is cross platform meaning it works on windows, mac and linux

    Hope this helps

    If you don't feel like installing a new ssh client try installing 'Insomnia' on your ipot and have it run while you try to copy over big files.

    oh yeah forgot about that and also remember to turn off auto lock or it will cut off your ssh connection when it turns the screen off (unless you are running insomnia of course...)
