    Hi

    Just got my Ipod touch and have jailbreaked it and added the GBA application but now need to get the roms onto the device.

    Have seen a couple youtube vids on getting them there and he used an FTP client (I forget the name so if you know..) so I need to do that, however I have never done the connection thing for an FTP Client so can some one please talk me through it or point me in a direction of a guide?

    Alternatively, if anyone got any good ipod installer sources for these games that would be sweet too.

    First post too so, hello..

    download a FTP client called WinSCP.
    install it.
    run it.
    For the host name put in the ip address that your ipod (settings > wifi > "network name" blue arrow) is connected to.

    username: root
    and by default the password: alpine
    Use port 22

    when you log in it may give u a warning or something about cache. Just click yes and you should be in.

    Hope this helps

    Also if you jailbroke your iPod touch with the 1.1.2, you had an option to change the password. Make sure you know it if you changed it!
