    I dont understand why people go through the hassle of using SSH when you could just use iBrickr to put files onto your ipod. Am I missing something? People go on about BSD subsystems and SSH and battery draining and all this, yet i seem to have installed summerboard, themes, apps, customized icons, wallpapers, ROMS, everything without SSH.

    Something I am missing? Is there some problem with ibrickr I should know about?

    nope, i guess it's just a preference... some people use this some people use that... it really depends...

    Edit: Sorry ChrisB, i've already taken it down...

    The big DOESN'T WORK WITH 1.1.1 text kind of put me off. I'm fine with temporarily downgrading from 1.1.2 to actually get it working, but having to go one further down again is too much of a hassle for me.

    ...unless there's a workaround to get it working with 1.1.1/2?

    SSH is easier to transfer a large number of files in different folder, and lets you change file permission, plus I like seeing the directory tree so I can keep track of where the folders are in relations to each others (I keep making symlinks to the Sites folder so I can access most files via Safari...)
    But as long as you're comfortable using iBrickr, and don't need to install anything that requires you to change permission (or if you don't mind changing that one by one in Squid), there's nothing wrong with iBrickr, I think it's much faster for transferring large files like ROMs.

    I have always used WinSCP and openSSH. I have never tried iBrickr. I tend to stick to things I am used to.. but I will try iBrickr to see what it is about...

    Using an FTP client and OpenSSH offers more compard to iBrickr. You will be able to copy, detele, move and create new folders... i also find it easy to use.
