    Hey Guys,

    Well I got to step 16: http://www.touchdev.net/wiki/Jailbreak_Guide

    I have down everything else, but when I type: ssh -l root your.ipods.ip.address (I inserted the right i.p. address) I get this error message:


    Could someone give me a simple answer please, as I am really worried!

    Thanks in advance,

    WizzKid

    Download oynx and set it to display hidden files.

    Navigate to Hard Drive -> Users -> Your Username -> .ssh and delete known_hosts

    Try Again.

    I've tried that, and .ssh is nowhere, I have searched spotlight for it aswell!

    Also searched for known_hosts and still nothing :confused:

    Doesn't look like you've got OS X to display hidden files using Oynx. Or have you?

    I'd suggest dropping into a terminal, you wont need to show the hidden files/folders. A 'cd /Users/<insert username>/.ssh/' will get you into the directory and then do 'ls -la' and if its present (which it is ;)) do 'rm -fr known_hosts'.

    Type 'exit' to get out of the shell.... and I'm hoping that you are a little familiar with terminal. If not, just dont delete (rm) anything else.

    just type this in your safari address bar:


    /Users/your_username_here/.ssh/known_hosts


    It will open that folder...
