    i keep getting an error that says the following:

    Error creating /etc/dropbear directory on phone.

    and then the dropbearkey output window displays this:

    I'd suggest using iPhuc to blast the image back onto the iPod so that you're on the step prior to SSH installation, and then try again.

    In iPhuc:
    Code:
    putfile iphonefs/rdisk0s1.dmg /dev/rdisk0s1
    Also make sure that you use Slide to Power Off when rebooting rather than holding the two buttons, or else the SSH/SFTP Daemon won't start up.

    I plan on writing a troubleshooting thread later so that less experienced users can avoid a restore.

    You really shouldn't have to restore. Once jailbroken, you should be able to repeatedly blast the OS that you extracted back onto the iPod from that disk image.

    can someone help me get passed step 16,


    16. When you're done, reboot your iPod Touch one more time, then SSH into your iPod Touch from the Terminal by typing the following:
    ssh -l root your.ipods.ip.address
    To find your iPod's IP address, go to your iPod's Settings, click WiFi, then click on the blue arrow to the right of the wifi you're connected to. It shows you the "IP Address" there. Make sure you are on the same wireless network as your computer
    When asked the password is alpine. If it gives a fuss, you may need to remove the "known_hosts" file from /Users/YourUser/.ssh/ (Remember, you should keep touching your screen to keep it active, it seems to slow networking right off when it goesn't into a sleep)

    I don't really understand what i'm ment to do

    Assuming you installed SSH correctly (using Slide to Power Off, not hardware reboot) you should be able to type
    Code:
    ssh -l root iPodIPAddressHere
    into Terminal, where iPodIPAddressHere is your iPod's local ip address.

    Looks like you took the supplied command literally. Open up your iPod's wifi settings, find out what the IP is, then use that address in place of "your.ipods.ip.address".

    Well now that you've confirmed that SSH is indeed working, you can move onto the next section. Use Cyberduck to connect with SFTP and complete the following steps:
    Code:
    19. If you're not already there, navigate to /var/root and rename Media to Media_sym
    
    20. Rename Mediaold to Media. Keep the FTP and SSH windows open.
    
    21. Open iTunes and allow it to activate. If it doesn't recognize your iPod, reboot it and/or restart iTunes.
    Once completed your iPod will act like a normal iPod, except now it has the SSH/SFTP Daemon running so you can send files to it.

    After that you can proceed to install Installer.app (instructions are in the guide).

    Okay, I held down the buttons instead of sliding and now I can't access ssh (it says "no address associated with nodename") How do I fix this specifically? I know people say "Blast" the file on or whatever, but I don't know what that means.
