    Heres the real way to add BOCHS Windows Emulator on your iPod Touch without any Cydia source or none of that.

    Step One) Download the .DEB package
    (thanks to ZhiZhi778 for his high-speed server)

    http://zhizhi778.com/downloads/ipod-iphone-bochs.deb

    Step Two) SSH and execute a command.

    Open your SSH Client.
    Navigate to where you would like the .DEB package to be (temporary spot)

    EDIT: Video tutorial coming soon
    Open Terminal.
    Type dpkg /LOCATION OF PACKAGE/ipod-iphone-bochs.deb

    Let it do its thing.
    After its done, respring or restart, and you should see BOCHS on your Home Screen.

    It's real slow (duh) but cool. I never knew that the iPod could handle dpkg commands.

    Well, the link will be taken down soon.

    This is cool though, mine just booted up...

    Takes like 20 minutes on my 2G though... and startes in safe mode. haven't tried 3.1 though.

    Whats the point of Bochs windows emulator??

    i heard it was REALLY slow so whats the actual point??

    is it like.. a mini windows in your ipodtouch/iphone with capabilities of a normal windows 98? or whatever windows it runs??


    i mean.. correct me if im wrong but i seem to find it really really un-useful. if anything else it laggs like *bleep*..

    you want a portable windows just buy a vaio pocket pc.

    Oh. so at the cost of major lagg. you can show off to your friend that you got a windows emulator and convince them to join the dark side?? as in. get an ipod touch seeing as it got LOADS of emulators and whatnot goin on?

    lol i wouldn't use it but i guess its pretty cool =D
