    K, so today I finally gave in and jailbroke my iPod touch.
    The process went perfectly; the Installer app is on the home screen, and that's all well and good, but now I have a question.

    You see, the only reason I jailbroke it was so that I could read manga offline with the app "iComic".
    Trouble is, I don't know how to get it to my iPod! It can't be found with that "Installer" thing, but only on the web. Being the noob I am, I have no idea how on Earth I get these zipped files to install on my touch.

    Please Help! I just wanna read Naruto and YuYu Hakusho in the car!! :(

    There are two solutions, one is easy, and the other is harder

    The first is to find a Repo (Source) that contains the app you want
    The second is to use SSH or an application in installer called AFPd to connect to the ipod from your computer and manually install it

    To do the first
    1. find the source that has it
    2. go into installer
    3. click sources at the bottom
    4. click edit
    5. click add
    6. enter the address
    7. press ok
    8. wait for the sources to refresh
    9. find the app under install
    10. install it

    To do the second (assuming you are on a mac using OS 10.5)(set your ipod to autolock never)
    1. go to installer
    2. find the app called AFPd and install it
    3. go back to the home screen and launch AFPd
    4. make sure that both the switches say on
    5. if your computer is on the same network as your ipod go to 6a if not go to 6b
    6a. open finder on the mac
    7a. click on the My Hacked iPhone in the Shared area of the sidebar (go to step 8)
    6b. open finder on the mac, click go, click connect to server, and enter the ipod's ip address (found in AFPd)
    7b. go to step 8
    8. click connect as and enter root as the username and alpine as the password
    9. go into the folder Root File System
    10. go to the folder Applications
    11. place the unzipped application in there

    You don't want to read Manga, you want to watch Hentai.
