    So I got my itouch wet and ruined it. Well, kind of. It still syncs when plugged into my computer, the screen lights up with nothing on it. So I have this idea to turn it into a 16 gb usb key/portable hard drive.

    Is there any way to do this via a computer without having access to the ipod screen?

    Not really unless it's already jailbroken, the data survived the wash, and you can SSH into the filesystem.

    hmm. well that wouldnt work very well beacuse, you'd need an ssh program on every computer you want to get the files off of (and have an ipod cable w u). If you just want to do it like on your computer and another one of urs than you can download either winscp (windows) or cyberduck (mac) on both, then youll just have to log in (user: root pass: alpine)

    now comes the files part

    go to /root (easiest) and then just drag the files over you want to a folder or w.e

    only problem is idk if you can just open a read only, you might have to copy it over.
