    I finally found a way to ssh using my usb cable.All you need to do is download iPhone tunnel suite 2.7 this is for PC users only i do not know if there is a mac version out yet.Fire up the program configur a few settings them your Gud to go its very simple to use.I found this very useful cos i do not hav wifi at home i mostly use the wifi connection at campus so it gets kinda hard wen i need to ssh while i am at home but its not a problem any more thanks to this lil application.Many thanks to the developer.The web site is http://www.makkiaweb.net/ .Let me know if this helped you guys.

    I have been looking for this since last September, almost thirteen months ago. If this works, hugs all around.

    how is ssh and programes like iphonebrowser different then? I thought the only diference was that one is wireless. doesn't ssh mean browsing the system files, or does it do more than that?

    the difference is that with iPhone Tunnel you can change file permissions where as with normal file browsing programs you can't so it a bit pointless being able to upload your apps and not be able to run cos you can't change the permissions on them but iPhone tunnel fixes this problem.

    I haven't been hacking/modding my iPod touch in months, so I may be a bit out of touch (no pun intended). But what if you use something like iPhone browser to upload the files, then use something like mobile finder on the iPod touch to change permissions? Though I admit, that is quite tedious.

    oh okay. Yeah, i would guess the iPod would have to be jailbroken (when I had my iPod touch, any iPod with an app would have to jailbroken - i forgot about the appstore now:eek:). Never mind what I said then.

    i think you need to download the english version or if you using iphone tunnel then uninstall and re-install it.

    yes only jailbroken ipods will work, you have to manually upload the mobileinstallation file, set permissions and reboot this does not do it for you.

    see my attached image for help
