    SSH lets you access your iPod touch/iPhone's files over a wifi connection

    SSH stands for Secure Shell.

    If you connect to your iPod Touch over WiFi using a SSH client such as Putty, you can access your iPod Touches file system with a command (text based) interface. A bit like DOS or terminal.

    cool, I've been using, I just didnt know what it was called. This will make everything much easier.

    Where can I find springboard. I can access summerboard from my installer. How can I get springboard?

    springboard is the ipod touch's homescreen UI.
    there's nothing to install because you're already using it.

    summerboard is just a clever play on words.
    summer comes after spring, summerboard makes springboard better, get it?

    Hi, I have SSH, but I turn it off and all my applications work fine. When would I ever need to turn on SSH? I heard turning it on you lose alot of battery life as well.

    Please an answer would be greatly appreciated.

    The only time you would need to turn it on is when you need use putty, etc. If you do not plan to do that then you can leave it off.
