Last night my ipod touch 2g (jailbroken) froze up as I was booting up a game. When I rebooted, it is gave me the “connect to itunes” picture, so I think I have to restore. I tried and I am still able to SSH into the ipod (although it seems to disconnect after a few seconds when the ipod screen turns off). Is there any way to SSH in and fix the problem so I don’t have to restore? If not, what is the best method of backing up my data (cydia apps, game saves, settings, etc.)? I did some research and found this thread, so I was going to try that unless there is a better method available. I’m not sure I understand the part about setting permissions though. Can someone explain that?
