    Just saw iTransmission in Cydia. Anyone use this? Does it work?

    Nice to have, but would people really need to be torrenting on the go on their phones? Probably better and faster to just torrent on the home computer while you're away, won't piss off the service provider either.

    That makes sense, but personally I'd have a use for it at work because they block the clients so I could probably use this over the company wifi.

    Just installed it and downloaded a music album in 5 minutes. This would be awesome if in ios5 you can add to iPod without a computer.

    If you are the IT department, how do "they" block clients? Don't you have admin rights to the computer you use there?

    Also, "they" could just be blocking the ports, so the app on an iPod Touch won't let you torrent either. By "they" I mean you since you are the IT department!

    not really, at my work the it guys have a normal user id and they use the admin one when fixing or installing software they dont have a licence to do what they want becasue ultimately everyone reports to someone unless you own the company then i guess you dont report to anyone

    Well yeah, That's the thing I was afraid of.. I am pretty sure it's the ports so it probably won't work. Unless the app has a port randomizer or something but I don't think so. The other option is 3G but I prefer to avoid that depending on the size.

    Use it over 3G to avoid work. My work blocks bittorrent protocols so this is a nice alternative if I need something from Demonoid.

    My only question is how to move the file to my computer. Can I save these to dropbox or mobileMe?

    After AT&T bullied me about a little bit of laptop tethering, I want to piss them off!

    Does this work? If this works that is one less thing I have to do on my SGS2 instead of the iPhone.

    Since you are jailbroken, just use something like Cyberduck (need to have SSH installed) or iFunBox.

    While bittorrent, in the past, worked over specific ports, now I think it works over almost any port. I'm not sure about iTransmission, but the Linux/OSX/FreeBSD/etc version of Transmission allows you to ignore unencrypted peers, which effectively makes identifying that it IS bittorrent traffic much more difficult. Unless you force it to be encrypted, the traffic is very easily identified.
