    ok i am new to the forums so hello to all.

    now down to business i have made it through the steps 1-15 for jailbreaking my touch. i get to 16 type in ssh -I root and it asks for the password which i type alpine and it says access denied 3 times. i goto the /Users/Myusername/.ssh and i delete that file and i keep doing this and it never works.

    any suggestions would be extremely helpful and help me get back to writing my term paper : )

    to add i am on a college network and my computer's ip has the last three digits different if that helps in your conclusions.

    Not sure if it will help but I noticed that you typed in your post:

    ssh -I .....

    It's actually ssh -l (lowercase L) root ...... (ip of touch)

    Also, I noticed that mines sometimes won't connect if my touch isn't on (can't be in standby). Try having it always on without going into standby. Other than that please try to explain what you are exactly doing and I'll try my best to get yours to work. Mines works flawlessly (with all iphone apps including mail/maps) so I should be able to help if you need some.
