I'm proposing a new method for doing this that would be easier and safer for Mac users based on my experience Jailbreaking my touch. I had the SSH problem using dropbear, but fixed it by redoing everything using my own method, which I'll describe here. The main advantage of this is it avoids the dreaded ssh connection refused problem. 1) Follow 'normal' procedure up to the point where you getfile rdisk0s1 using iPHUC 2) In Finder rename rdisk0s1 to rdisk0s1.dmg. 3) Double-click it to mount it. 4) Replace or modify fstab as with the other guides, this will make your file system writable. 5) Replace or modify Services.plist as with the other guides. (I'm not 100% sure if this is necessary, but it shouldn't hurt) 6) Run the springboard patch (springpatch) 7) Copy Installer.app to the /Applications folder 8) Eject the Snowbird image 9) In iPHUC putfile rdisk0s1.dmg /dev/rdisk0s1 9) Restart the touch 10) You should be almost done by this point. You should see 1 new icon, which is the Installer. 11) Use Installer to install the following packages (in this order): - community sources - BSD subsystem (takes a long time) - Open SSH 12) Follow other guides from the ssh into your touch section.
