    I just bought my 16g 1st generation ipod touch and jailbroke it.
    i tried to use winscp to use ssh but kept getting connection timed out and would not connect. so i searched around the forum and found out that my ipod might not have openssh installed. i searched for one on installer and proceeded to download it but it kept giving me "Error : Timed out"
    i've tried adding other sources and updating the sources but they all give "Error : Timed out" message. "
    is there something i can do to fix this problem? i browse the internet without a prob but i just can install anything on installer.

    do you have cydia?

    if you do, use it for installing openSSH.

    installer is a little buggy.

    what firmware are you on? are you on 2.1?

    if not, you should upgrade and re-jailbreak.

    Installer on 2.1 is not like the installer from the 1.1.X periods.
    The new king of the hill is Cydia.
