    Hey this is the message i get on terminal on step 16 on the intel mac guide
    it says also:Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
    It is also possible that the RSA host key has just been changed.
    The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is
    .......long code..........
    Please contact your system administrator.
    Add correct host key in /Users/Davide/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
    Offending key in /Users/Davide/.ssh/known_hosts:1
    RSA host key for (my ip address) has changed and you have requested strict checking.
    Host key verification failed.
    Any idea of what to do?
    Thanks for your time

    Very strange. Try resetting your iPod and try again. Make sure you read the directions carefully.

    GOSH!!! DO you ever pay attention to the guide? In the guide, it said:

    "When asked the password is alpine. If it gives a fuss, you may need to remove the "known_hosts" file from /Users/YourUser/.ssh/"

    So remove the folder and you are good to go! By the way, it's not someone's hacking your network, it's just you may have modified some files during the jailbreak process.

    Try this

    ssh root@ipaddress

    I got this on my second time jailbreaking and it froze because of summer then this working on the second jailbreak now im on my third jailbreak and now its not working third time summer crashed my touch too. Any help on what to do would be great. The reason it says this is because your computer ip address isn't the same as you itouch ip address..

    Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
