    yeah, don't restore! I had the same problem and all I had to do was restart terminal with my ipod plugged in and do it again, and it worked.

    i can't get past number 4. here is what it says in terminal:

    cp: /opt/local/lib/libreadline.5.2.dylib: No such file or directory
    abe-pattees-computer:~ apattee$

    all the files are on my desktop, so i don't know why it says the file is there.

    well now i'm stuck at

    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 just don't understand :confused:

    I too was getting "getfile: Failed to open remote file: 8"

    I think I found the source of this problem. In following the steps to get 1.1.1. jailbroken, it doesn't tell you, but you need to quit iTunes before connecting with iphuc.

    I saw message about starting all over, but there had to be a reason for the failure. Just for the heck of it I closed iphuc, quit iTunes, tried iphuc again and it worked!
