    I can't search ssh in the search function because it's too short.

    Is there a thread that can help me SSH into the Ipot?

    I've gotten in, i think.

    On puttyit looks like
    login as: root
    root@192.168.0.216's password:
    # []
    ^ crude cursor

    anyways.... is there some thread that tells me what to do afterwards?

    do i use sftp to modify the values?

    Which values are you trying to modify? Do you mean the permissions?

    I have a feeling you're trying to set permissions. If that is the case, then the easiest way to do that would be to enter that directory: ie, type into your SSH client:
    cd /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/

    Once you are in the folder to where you are trying to go, type in
    chmod [new permissions] [the name of the file]
    Example:

    chmod 755 N45AP.plist


    To do this without changing onto the directory first, just type the file's location into the command, ie

    chmod 755 N45AP.plist /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/SpringBoard


    While this is convenient when doing one file, it can become a lot of typing of you have to change many files.


    I hope this is the information you were looking for. If not, then I will delete this post so it doesn't clutter up your thread.

    Well i just want to add some apps or anything. But after some reading i should be using sftp for that. I was just wondering if there is a guide to use ssh or sftp with putty or cuteftp

    Yeah, it is easier to use sftp to do that. Just download WinSCP or CuteFTP, it will be way easier than using putty.

    Funny, this whole time I've been using WinSCP and calling it "ssh'ing". I must review my terminology....

    hey guys, thanks so much for the input so far.

    Is there a list of things to modify for different things? where things are held? or what not?

    like a guide as to what each directory does?

    use winscp, instead of using the command prompt or whatever its called winscp just let you browse the file system you can just click and drag things in or out of you IPoT
