    I have followed everything step by step, including all the rebooting of the iPod before and after the iNdependence, but every time (I have tried to Jailbreak it now 6 times) I always get this error when trying to use SSH:

    tom-sabins-computer:~/Desktop tomsabin$ ssh -1 root
    ssh: root: [b]No address associated with nodename[/b]
    A friend suggested using
    ssh -1 root@
    Which got me further but not coming up with the correct yes/no thing and then alpine, instead it comes up with something to do with "1 vs 2"

    Can someone please help me?

    It sounds really stupid, but in

    that is actually the letter l as in "letter".

    SSH help

    I had the same problem. Try this instead:

    ssh root@
    Basically drop the -1 to stop SSH using the older protocol. It worked for me after trying everything else. I haven't got a clue why some people are getting this problem and others aren't...

    Good luck.

    Got a problem with PuTTY.

    I open the program, and enter my iPod's IP address and a black input box opens. It asks for "login" so I type "root" and press enter. Then the next line of text asks for a password, but I can't seem to type anything (a green "rectangle/cube") just appears next to the text.

    Anyone know what I'm doing incorrectly to connect to my Touch?

    Everything works fine now, in the process of transferring the iPhone applications across and the installing SummerBoard.

    Thanks for you help

    (It was l (L) after all :p)
