    okay so I heard that Wget was the best for downloading movies, due to safari plug in crashing and iShare crashing if you TRy and download a file over 20 mb.

    So I used the ijailbreak mobile method to upgrade from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2. And during that process the 150+ mb firmware file was downloaded. I am assuming that wget had something to do with it? So I intalled wget, from installer and am not sure how to use it??? Do you guys know how to use it?

    I'm assuming you go into termenal and type the path where you are going to implement the file (/var/root/...) and then the URL of the file. But how to activate wget??? PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP, I'm dying to try this out with iphoPod!!!!
