    I have a jailbroken iTouch, I just jailbroke it. When I use WinSCP to access files tho it bricks my iTouch. I use WinSCP to edit some of the folders and files and it all works ok. My iTouch works fine but then the first time my iTouch reboots after having used WinSCP it bricks up. Any idea why? All I'm doing is changing some file permissions.

    what permissions are you changing exactly, WinSCP can be dangerous if you don't know what you are doing

    Yeah, WinSCP totally sucks. Everytime I delete /etc/fstab and try to reboot my iPod is totally bricked.

    Translation for the irony-impaired: Do not mess with stuff you do apparently know nothing about and then blame the program you used for messing around.

    Oh why isn't that nice, using it for cracked apps installation. No worries I've reported you.

    Have a nice day

    Modifying the mobile installation framework and plist, is used for cracking apps.

    We do not allow discussions of the cracked apps/mobile installation patches here.

    you obviously dont know what your talking about, the reason he wants to edit is cuz of cracked apps

    @OP, i guess if you didnt pirate apps this wouldnt happen right? dont use winscp if you dont know what youre doing

    WinSCP did not BRICK your iPod.
