    I have pretty much spent around 6 hours today trying to get iPhone apps on my iPod touch. It has been jailbroken, and installer works fine (haven't even bothered to use summerboard) and I have followed people instructions on how to install the iPhone apps, but they are a little vague. I searched everywhere, but nothing helped. I have downloaded the right files (the application folders for maps, mail, etc. are in /Applications in my iPod Touch), the .bundle file in under preference bundles, and the framework file is under Frameworks on my iPod (all using Cyberduck).

    I then open terminal, type in ssh -l root 10.x.x.x , (I dont acually type the x's) hit enter, and then it asks me for the password. when I type in "alpine" it doesnt show up on the screen, but when I hit enter a "#" sign pops on the left side of the next line. Then, I type chmod -R a+x /Applications/*, hit enter, nothing happens, I quit terminal, reboot my iPod (slide to shut down) and none of the apps are there. I have also tried the same steps, except instead of the first chmod command I type in "/bin/chmod -Rf +x /Applications/" and nothing happens either. I am about as fed up with this as all of you guys are with seeing threads like these, but please help me :(

    edit: got mail, maps, weather, and notes on it, but mail crashes before it even loads the app.
    edit2: got mail working. the first download I used was bad.

    No no no, youll have to get a program called cyberduck for mac. Just use the ip from your touch to login, as well as "root" for the username and "alpine" as the pw. Like this

    Then, navigate to your apps section, and add what you want, like so:

    Here is the best tutorial Ive seen so far. I figured everything out on my first try w. this. Tutorial to end all Tutorials

    Better than using touchfree.exe ?

    Just surf to dr dre's tiff page, then run touchfree.exe, and after 3 reboots, its done.

    i have used ijailbreak and am unsure of what steps i need to do after this to put 3rd party and iphone apps on it.

    All the guides which I have found explain how to jailbreak the ipod touch before the automated program, which are really confusing.

    It would be great to stop all the questions on this forum if someone who has completed it, write a step-by-step guide for people like me who have NO IDEA about ftps and terminal.

    I am using a intel mac, with cyberduck freshly installed.

    Would be really helpful!!! thanks.

    I figured out where you are messing up.

    when you are in terminal, you have to replace the asterisk at the end of the command with the application you want to set the permissions for

    e.g.

    type these commands

    chmod -R a+x /Applications/MobileMail.app
    chmod -R a+x /Applications/Maps.app
    chmod -R a+x /Applications/MobileNotes.app
    chmod -R a+x /Applications/Stocks.app
    chmod -R a+x /Applications/Weather.app

    it won't give you any acknowledgement of anything after each coming, just a new line with a #. after entering all of those commands, restart your ipod. the apps should work

    Thank you so much! It worked seamlessly. When I saw that little * thing I though it was weird, but did it anyway. I knew something was wrong. Thanks for all your advice!

    ...except mail crashes. I'll look into that later.

    The asterisk is a wildcard and applies the command to *all* apps in /Applications.

    The mistake I made was dragging into the wrong LIBRARY(S). Make sure you've dragged the bundles and frameworks into the LIBRARY in the SYSTEM Folder, not the LIBRARY in the root folder or the other one (there are three).

    I went to that, but because it was a jailbreaking program and my ipod was already jailbroken, I didn't see why I needed it. I'm going to use it though, so I can get summerboard on my ipod now.

    ssh root@ip of your ipod
    password:alpine

    /bin/chmod ...... and the the rest

    Had to use /bin/ as it wouldnt work without.

    Didnt mean to sound impatient before. Just give me a yell if you need a hand getting the programs to work e.g. the iphone apps. All mine work 100%
