    You have to have openSSH on you iPod Touch in order to do anything with WINSCP. Which can ONLY be done if you jailbreak it. But you cannot since there is no jailbreak for the iPod Touch 2G yet. So all you can do is normal stuff like listen to music and buy applications off iTunes.

    I have a 1g Ipod.

    Where do I get openSSH,

    Its all well and good saying what to do but most of these guides say nothing to what everything is and what is does which is confusing for the new average user.

    Download openSSH from cydia. It should be in utilities or system I think.

    Themes mainly, roms and some apps if you'd like to SSH them.
