    Hi.. i have two questions but thought id post them in one post..

    First, Terminal. I have it installed and been learning how to use it to dwload *******s from dtunes, but when i enter "./get*******" and press 'return', nothing happens, it just goes onto the next line down. What am i doing wrong ?

    Second, can anyone explain what 'SSHing' is ? what what it does ? please, im confused.. thanks.

    SSHing is basically entering your iPod/Phone's files over a wifi network. It's useful, for transferring themes rather than installing them from cydia, since sometimes there are better ones on the internet rather than a repo. There are guides on how to SSH into your iPod using WinSCP (Windows).

    There are plenty of guides all over this site, use the search button.
    Themes are made on the computer, then transferred onto Cydia using repos. This forum has a section for theme releases to download, as well as a guide on how to use winterboard. Basically, you place whatever theme you downloaded into /Library/Themes, then use Winterboard to activate them. There's a guide here on how to make your own theme as well.
