    I'm pretty new to modding and everything. But there's a couple things I'd like to change that require me to SSH them. Does anyone have or can anyone give me a link that can kinda walk me through SSHing?

    I'm using winpwn-2.5 btw
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    I'm using WinSCP. NOT winpwn-2.5

    Sorry for any confusion.

    search google
    it's usb based and much easier and faster just connect and open diskaid

    Here's how you do it:

    1. Open Cydia.
    2. Go to Sections.
    3. Go to All Packages.
    4. Go down to the O's section.
    5. Download OpenSSH.
    6. Click Install which is located in the top right corner.
    7. Click Confirm which is located in the top right corner.
    8. Go to your springboard.
    9. Reboot your iPod.
    10. Go into Settings > General > Auto- Lock > Never.
    11. While your iPod is NOT in sleep mode go into WinSCP.
    12. Click File.
    13. Go into New
    14. Click SFTP.
    15. Your Host Address is your IP address.
    16. The password is alpine.

    You are now able to SSH into your iPod.

    Right, I've been able to get that far. But it's trasferring the files from my computer, into winscp, and onto my iPod that I don't know how to do.
    Thanks for your help though

    In the left panel of winscp, there's a list of files. Right above the files is a dropdown menu that you can select which folder is displayed. From there, just drag and drop the files from the left to the right. Once the file has been completely transferred, it's on your ipod.

    If you need to know where to place certain files at, it all depends on what you're doing. For themes, check out a Winterboard FAQ. For other transfers, search the site. Search for the specific thing you want to put on your ipod, and there should be instructions on how to put it on. Hopefully, anyway.
