    nothing

    Here is a guide on how to SSH into your ipod touch, any gen, or iphone, any gen,



    STEP 1: first ( you HAVE to be jailbroken ) get OpenSSH from cydia.....

    u can enable it in BossPrefs, also from cydia....


    STEP 2: u need WinSCP,( on computer ) if windows, or cyberduck, if mac, im not sure on cyberduck on how to use, because im on windows....




    Anyways once u get that downloaded, run it...

    itll ask you for a Host name, username, and password.....
    Hostname = ur IP Address (on device ),

    to view that go to , settings, wi-fi, click on the blue arrow on your network...and there it is...put that in for your hostname ... example. 192.168.0.123 ( no thats not my IP )


    ok your username and password ( by default ) will be...

    username= root

    password= alpine


    you can change ur password by using Terminal ( theres a guide on cydias home page)


    after that...click Save, name it something, and check Save password ( recommended) and then click ok, log in to it, then making sure SSH is enabled on your device, it will log in, if it asks you anything, just click Ok,


    next a new window should pop up,

    you can see all the files on your device, you can copy them, edit them, replace them, import files...etc..

    thats about it....

    Where to find stuff

    click backspace until you are just \

    here you can find Applications ,all your applications on your device, ( cydia apps )

    to find appstore / [PIRACY]us apps go to:

    \private\var\mobile\applications

    that will be all your appstore / [PIRACY]us apps with some weird number as a title


    to find your themes on winterboard ( yes u can edit them, add stuff)

    press backspace all the way back to \

    go into \Library

    then go to \Themes



    here are all your themes!

    to view the .png files in to Icons folder in the theme folder your in drag them into your documents and then click on them, u can edit them in photoshop or whatever,

    after you made changes, maybe made new icons....

    If you changed an icon: just make sure its named EXACTLY the same as the name of the .png file in the Icons folder, then it will overwrite,

    FOR ADDING NEW ICONS:

    All you have to do is make an icon ( 60 x 60 usually) name it the app you want it to change example


    NFSU.png

    YES ALL ICONS MUST! HAVE THE .png EXTENSION!

    AND YES THEY MUST BE .png

    you can change them to .png and the dimension and all with photoshop..

    in photoshop... when u save it, you can chose the file type


    in photoshop...to change the dimensions, go to the Image tab at the top


    go to the Image size option

    and in the drop down menu thing, make it pixels and make it 60 x 60


    ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT MAKING a WHOLE THEME, OR ANYTHING, PM me, OR JUST REPLY BELOW

    Good guide, but the block of text immediately makes me want to find another guide. You should brush it up a little bit, like:

    -(step 1)

    -(step 2)

    ect.

    I agree with him^^. It's easy to get lost with what your doing with those instructions.

    There are already multiple ones, and this would be just as good, just space it out, a lot more visually attracting, and looks more inviting to read.

    Why use winSCP if you can use iFunBox?

    EDIT:
    Not that big of a bump, but I just noticed the post above me did a small bump.

    I use it when my USB cable isn't within reach and I'm feeling too lazy to get up.

    You can do it wirelessly with WinSCP. 0.0

    Well, I am switching to Mac anyway...
