    I was reading through the tutorial on this forum and I've gotten what to do so far, but this part is a little unclear. Please help:

    Once connected to your iPod, run the following commands to open Installer.app on your iPod. We're also going to get a CHMOD out of the way because it's convenient:
    Code:
    chmod -R a+x /Applications/*
    Code:
    /Applications/Installer.app/Installer

    My question is about these two codes. Do I do what it literally says or do I do this:

    chmod -R a+x /Applications/

    then

    chmod -R a+x /Applications//Installer.app/Installer


    I know it's probably obvious to most of you, but I just want to make sure.
    Thanks! :)

    Execute one after the other. Sorry for not being clear about that in my first post.

    First:
    Code:
    chmod -R a+x /Applications/*
    Then:
    Code:
    /Applications/Installer.app/Installer

    Ca king, I followed the "automated windows method" and did not do this step, but in the end i had to perform the CHMOD command before my apps would function. I believe its 2 seperate commands, hit enter after each one. Though in my case even though I didn't do this during the jailbreak, I was able to do it after the fact and it works. (I had to use windows and used touchfree.zip, winSCP, iPhone_1.1.1_apps.zip, and the indispensable Putty which is included in touchfree.zip)

    The reason I included this step was to assure, under any circumstances, that Install.app would work.
