    I restored my iPod and re-jailbreaked it, and now my RSA host key is different so I can't access the system through SFTP. How can I manually browse the system files without using this?

    If the host key is different, you should be able to continue and get a new host key. Just press YES or CONTINUE when the popup message comes up.

    ...or delete your existing ssh cert. key.

    Are you on Mac or Windows?

    Sorry, I didnt answer your question. I have added all of my applications (except for SummerBoard) via Installer and using additional sources. I now have my own source server, so I can place the apps there and install from my iTouch©

    Go into Terminal.
    type 'cd' : this will take you into your home folder. Alternatively, type 'cd /Users/<your username>' (replace <your username> with your username)

    type 'cd .ssh' to enter the ssh directory which is hidden (a dot before the name means hide me)

    type 'mv known_hosts known_hosts_backup' to rename the known_hosts file which effectively disables all previous ssh keys (rather than delete, rename for possible later use)

    Now try to ssh into your iTouch

    Or you can simply open your Web browser and type this:

    /Users/your_username_here/.ssh/known_hosts

    then enter, it will open a new finder window and delete that file.

    Note: Replace your_username_here with your user login name
