    When someone posts a new theme, when you download it onto your computer, how do you transfer it to the iPod? do you just go update iPod in iTunes with shift key, then select the file it's saved as?

    you ssh into your ipod, navigate to var/root/library/summerboard/themes

    make a folder. inside put a dock and wallpaper and a subfolder with the icons you want.

    Device:
    2G iPod touch
    download the program called WinSCP on your computer. type in the IP address of your iphone/ipod touch, username: root password: alpine

    connect.

    browse to var/root(mobile on 1.1.3/4)/media/summerboard/themes.

    go to the left side of the WinSCP box and go to wherever you have your theme. drag it to the right side (ipod)

    requirements to ssh: ( this is the method i use)
    Winscp( i prefer cute ftp pro i dunno if it works on winscp)
    Wifi
    have open SSH on you ipod as you can download from installer and services/netservices
    (i dont remeber which 1)

    have open ssh setting on
    then go to settings, wifi, and find out the i.p. address is

    next open winscp or ftppro
    click new
    and then SFTP

    then a window should appear
    it should say

    Lable: (whatever you want such as The Lion King or Ipod Touch)
    Host Address: watever the setting said for what wi-fi is- ***.**.*.**
    Username: root
    Password: alpine

    put files in right folder then change permunissions (highlight all in folder and right click properties and change permunissions to 755)
    hope this helped
