    why do IM clients like jivetalk crash when I start multitasking and opening other safari tabs? I always have to log back on.

    Its not actually crashing.
    In order to save battery life, the iPod would "close" a window you're not using.


    Something like that.

    Look for

    the thread for the Apollo app fix
    Apollo.app is a really good IM app that is under "network" in installer.app
    and u dont need a browser window for it....
    ok nevermind i have it....


    get Cyberduck for mac
    open a new SFTP connection
    servername is your ipod IP address
    username: root
    password: alpine (if u need it)

    find the (ect) folder
    download the file called "hosts" and open it with text edit....

    add this to the end of the text in that file

    64.12.161.185 login.oscar.aol.com
    64.12.161.185 login.messaging.aol.com
    65.54.239.140 messenger.hotmail.com
    65.54.239.140 dp.msnmessenger.akadns.net
    65.54.179.216 nexus.passport.com
    65.54.179.216 nexus.passport.com.nsatc.net
    65.54.183.203 login.live.com
    65.54.183.203 login.live.com.nsatc.net
    65.55.128.48 spaces.live.com
    209.85.163.125 talk.google.com
    209.85.163.125 talk.l.google.com

    Now upload that and replace the existing "hosts" file on your ipod...

    After restarting a few time, this should give u Apollo.app working on 1.1.3
    this is all useless if your not jailbroken yet...but hey!
    Take care!

    Hmm... I'm still not sure if I wanna Jailbreak my iPod yet. With the new apps, I can't really imagine anything else I need. Yes games would be nice, improve iCal functionality and the likes but is it worth the trouble and the risk? Would I loose functionality if I get the hacked versions of the native apps?

    Is JiveTalk a WEBAPP? If so, when you switch tabs in iPod Touch's Safari, it disables javascript on the non-active page. So only the page you are viewing has javascript enabled. ;).
