    I'm trying to access my iPod Touch's Application folder w/o using Wi-Fi as it sucks in my building. Any hints on how to do this using Vista 64bit?

    If the iPod is jailbroken, try TouchExplorer.

    Here you go, freshly uploaded :D Warning though, the program itself seems to be in Japanese lol. Hard to take advantage of many options because of that..

    Ok, I'm not exactly sure if this is what you guys are referring to...

    But is this possible to access internet thru iTouch without Wi-Fi?

    cuz I spend like 90% of my day at work, no Wi-Fi.

    Just curious.

    You want to plug a cable into a mobile device? Why not just use your computer at work?

    It's sort of like having a cell phone with a dead battery and a 4-foot cable to charge through and you need to close 8 of your biggest business deals ever today - it sucks.

    It would be a way to use it as a portable disk drive as well as a mobile device just like the previous ipods.

    In a barn
    I found it!

    Hey noticed you had a few problems, need a hand still? You wantined to connect and access the files to iTouch/iPhone Correct?

    I wanted to achive the same thing so i read this forum and tryed it....No Luck!
    well i was hunting around for ages and found there is a way, It still requires WinSCP (portable if at work) and access to the command line (Although there is a GUI version now which i have not tested yet).
    Anyway google iPhone Tunnel, download and enjoy.....if your using the command line version just pop open cmd and change directory to the one where iphone_tunnel.exe is located then type "iphone_tunnel.exe 22 22" (No speachmarks). Once you've done that wait a minute or two then open up WnSCP. host name is This Doesn't change on command line version. Username is root and password is alpine click connect or save then your in!

    Sorry for the lete threat post only just joined,

    I am pretty sure this will work:

    using this plug-in:

    First install Total Commander. Then navigate to the t-pot archive on the left pane and double click it. A message should come up asking you to install it. After that is installed, on the right pane click the dropdown box where it says C: and select the last one. You should see something that says t-pot with a little ipod next to it. Double click it and you should have access to your ipod. To move files, you have to drag them from one pane to another, you can not drag them directly from a folder.

    Hope that helped!
