How to SSH ROMs and Themes onto iPod/iPhone using Winscp

First, you have to make sure you have "openssh" installed in cydia.

Second, go to (i'll have it in the video description) and install the program.

In the "Host name" field you must enter your IP address from your ipod/iphone.
You have to be connected to WiFi and you click the blue arrow next to your connection.
The username is : root
The password is: alpine

Once you have that stuff entered in. Press login.

I will first show you how to get ROMs onto your ipod/iphone.
A good website to get ROMs is Emuparadise
If you click on your for example "NES" application you will see a message saying upload ROMs to
To do this you must navigate to that folder. You can do this through winscp. As you can see we are currently on the /private/var/root folder.

When you create the folder it must be exactly "ROMs".
Inside of the ROMs folder we must create another folder called "NES"
Now as you can see both paths match up we are now on /var/mobile/Media/ROMs/NES
We can now drag and drop NES ROMs into this folder. I have downloaded "megaman 6" just for this video.
Now, on your iPod/iPhone just reopen the NES application and there you go! You now have a playable NES rom.
---------------------------------------- ---------------------
Also, using WinSCP i'll show you how to add Themes to Winterboard that you downloaded from any ipod/iphone theme site.
You need to get to /private/var/stash
this is how.
You will see a Themes folder. click on that.
This folder contains all your Winterboard themes.
Now you can drag all your themes you downloaded into this folder
If you click on WinterBoard now, it should be in there!

That's all for this WinSCP tutorial. If you have any questions please do ask. Check out my blog for great information(including ipod touch 2nd gen jailbreak tutorial). Rate comment Subscribe! Thanks!

P.S. For those of you who do not have WiFi you can also SSH like this

Tethered Jailbreak for iPod Touch 2nd Gen Windows Step by Step

What you'll need:
redsn0w lite

iRecovery and libusb
2.1.1 IPSW
2.2.1 IPSW
What you may need:
If for some reason your iPod will refuse to get a white screen when it is supposed to
download this to end iPod Services and Mobile Services(should make it work)
End Services batch file

-Submitted by Username: jake fox
Thank you.


1.) Extract redsn0w lite and XPwn to your Desktop

2.) Save (or move) the 2.2.1 IPSW into the XPwn folder and rename it OriginalFW.ipsw

3.) In the rslite101 folder, there should be a FirmwareBundles folder; copy the iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11.bundle into your XPwn\FirmwareBundles\ folder.

4.) Open up a Command Prompt (type cmd in the Search bar if on Vista).

5.) In Command Prompt, cd to the Xpwn directory and do "ipsw OriginalFW.ipsw patchedFW.ipsw -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar"
Some people are having trouble with the cd command. Just type cd, then a space, and then drag the little folder icon of where you want to cd(so in our case drag the Xpwn folder into the command line) in this into the command prompt and press enter.
Should look something like this after you drag the folder in.

IF YOU GET AN ERROR HERE SAYING "COULD NOT FIND IPSW" take out the .ipsw after OriginalFW in the xpwn folder

After you have your command prompt looking like that type in "ipsw OriginalFW.ipsw patchedFW.ipsw -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar"

Should say hashing ipsw

6.) Put your iPod Touch in DFU mode

Step 1. Turn off your iPod.

Step 2. Press and hold home button for 5 seconds then continue holding home button and press power button for 10 seconds

Step 3. release the power button but continue holding the home button down.

Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that its in restore mode..


7.)Extract all files in the iRecovery RAR to your Desktop and open the iRecovery folder, there should be an installer for libusb located here.
If you haven't already installed libusb, please do so now.
If you're running Vista or 7, please right click the .exe and select Properties, then click the Compatibility tab, then select Windows XP (Service Pack 2) from the drop-down menu.
After install, a restart may be required.

8.)Open another Command Prompt (or use the one you used before, if it is still up) and type the following:
cd C:\Users\yourusername\Desktop\iRecovery\iRecovery_SVN
or you could type cd, space, and drag the iRecovery_SVN folder into the command prompt


9.) Extract your 2.1.1 iBSS and 2.2.1 iBSS and iBoot.
To do so, right click your 2.1.1 IPSW and select Open with> WinRAR archiver.
Navigate to the Firmware\dfu directory, then drag iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu into your iRecovery_SVN folder.
Rename it iBSS211.dfu.
Now, open up your PatchedFW.IPSW from the xpwn folder using WinRAR.
First, navigate to the Firmware\dfu folder and drag iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu into your iRecovery_SVN folder.
Rename is iBSS221.dfu.
Now, navigate to the Firmware\all_flash\all_flash.n72ap.production folder.
Extract iBoot.n72ap.RELEASE.img3 to your iRecovery_SVN folder.
Rename it iBoot221.img3.

10.)Bring up your Command Prompt again and execute the following:

iRecovery -f iBSS211.dfu
Your iPod's screen should turn white.
If it doesn't, unplug your iPod and wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in.

11.)11.) In the same Command Prompt, enter the following:
iRecovery -s
mw 0x9000000 0xe59f3014
mw 0x9000004 0xe3a02a02
mw 0x9000008 0xe1c320b0
mw 0x900000c 0xe3e02000
mw 0x9000010 0xe2833c9d
mw 0x9000014 0xe58326c0
mw 0x9000018 0xeafffffe
mw 0x900001c 0x2200f300
Just to clarify, you will hit enter after each of these commands.

12.) Restore to your PatchedFW.ipsw firmware using iTunes (Hold shift and press restore and click the patchedfw.ipsw that is in the Xpwn folder)

13.) After your restore is complete, put you iPod into DFU mode, you'll have to apply the patch again to boot.
You will also have to do these same things each time you boot from now on:

iRecovery -f iBSS211.dfu
iRecovery -s
mw 0x9000000 0xe59f3014
mw 0x9000004 0xe3a02a02
mw 0x9000008 0xe1c320b0
mw 0x900000c 0xe3e02000
mw 0x9000010 0xe2833c9d
mw 0x9000014 0xe58326c0
mw 0x9000018 0xeafffffe
mw 0x900001c 0x2200f300
iRecovery -f iBSS221.dfu
iRecovery -s
iRecovery -f iBoot221.img3
iRecovery -s
If you iPod is not recognized after sending the 2.1.1 iBSS, unplug it and plug it back in, then try iRecovery -s.
You may need to unplug your iPod after sending each iBSS, also.

(SORRY I DON'T HAVE PICTURES FOR THIS STUFF. I DON'T HAVE AN iPOD TOUCH 2nd Generation So i showed you as much as I could without it)

14.) Your iPod should now be booting; enjoy you tethered jailbreak.

I'd like to give credit to jfb392 from iPod Touch Fans and AriX from the same site.
**Pictures were all hosted by myself, ShabzCoHelp**

I figured out how to Tether Jailbreak 2.2.1

I'm not going to have a video up on this.
But, i'll have a step by step(with pictures) on how to do it tonight.

WINDOWS Tethered Jailbreak for iPod Touch 2nd Generation

This is a tutorial on how to do a tether jailbreak for iPod Touch 2nd Gen
Do I recommend it.. No
Why? Because It's too damn complicated for a jailbreak.
I would just be patient and wait for an untethered jailbreak to come out

GO TO for rslite package.

1) Download xpwn nightly from

2) Put the contents of the FirmwareBundles folder included in rslite into the FirmwareBundles folder included in Xpwn.

3) Copy a 2.2.1 IPSW into the Xpwn directory and call it OriginalFW.ipsw. If you don't have one, download it from

4) In Command Prompt, cd to the Xpwn directory and do "ipsw OriginalFW.ipsw patchedFW.ipsw -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar" For those of you that can't open the ipsw in command prompt, make sure your ipsw in the xpwn folder is called "OriginalFW" not "OriginalFW.ipsw". It already has a .ipsw extension, the .ipsw on the filename is not necessary. (Thanks, -tcq42-!)

5) Boot the iPod touch to DFU.

6) Upload 2.1.1 iBSS, from an extracted 2.1.1 IPSW. To do this, cd to wherever iRecovery is located and run iRecovery.exe -f After uploading the iBSS you need to unplug for ten seconds and plug it back in.

7) Use iRecovery.exe -s and run all of the commands listed in the pwn211ibss.txt script from the rslite folder

8) Restore to patchedFW.ipsw with iTunes

9) To boot normally, follow the README.txt tutorial but use iRecovery instead of rslite, and instead of doing #pwn211ibss.txt run all of the commands listed in the pwn211ibss.txt file.

CREDITS TO AriX from iPod Touch Fans

You can ask me questions, but I may or may not have the answers. I have not actually tried this just giving you guys the tutorial if you are desperate.
Sorry I'm not too experienced with coding.

MAC Tethered Jailbreak for iPod Touch 2nd Gen

Here is the mac version of the tethered jailbreak.

GO TO for rslite package.
1) Copy the FirmwareBundles and CustomPackages directories into
your directory
2) Create a custom 2.2.1 ipsw with PwnageTool in Advanced mode. Don't
enable custom boot logos.
3) From your custom 2.2.1 ipsw, extract these (patched) files:
iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu (name it iBSS221pwn.dfu)
iBoot.n72ap.RELEASE.img3 (name it iBoot221pwn.img3)
4) From the official 2.1.1 ipsw, extract this (unpatched) file:
iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu (name it iBSS211.dfu)

Installing the jailbroken custom ipsw
5) Put your ipt2g into DFU mode using keypresses. Don't have iTunes running!
6) Start rslite. Send the official iBSS from 2.1.1: !iBSS211.dfu
7) Start rslite again. Send the redsn0w-lite patch: #pwn211ibss.txt
8) Send the patched iBSS from 2.2.1: !iBSS221pwn.dfu
9) Use iTunes to do a full restore using your custom 2.2.1 ipsw

Tethered boot
After the install, your ipt2g will not be bootable without assistance
from a tethered computer. The method in this README.txt requires you
to go into DFU mode, but you should be able to find (or work out on
your own) other more convenient ways.
10) Repeat steps 5-8
11) Send the patched iBoot from 2.2.1: !iBoot221pwn.img3

Your homescreen should soon show up. You can then start iTunes.

Again, I don't know much on how to do this, but here it is for any of the people who
understands technical stuff

NEW iPhone Coming?!? Clues in the new firmware!

MacRumors has discovered that Apple’s iPhone 2.x Firmware has evidence of the next generation iPhone which has been designated “iPhone2,1″.

Apple uses these models numbers to distinguish between different hardware models. The original iPhone carries the model number of “iPhone 1,1″ while the 3G iPhone is labeled “iPhone 1,2″. These numbers do not change for simple storage increases and instead represent functionally different devices. Similarly, the iPod Touch was originally introduced as the “iPod 1,1″ and the most recent hardware revision was labeled “iPod2,1″. The 2,1 iPod Touch added a speaker, volume controls, microphone support and a much faster processor than the 1st generation model. This new model number can be found in the USBDeviceConfiguration.plist in an unencrypted firmware.

For those who would like to download Windows 7(2 Methods)

METHOD 1(this is how I did it)
1.You will need a torrent downloading program
I suggest utorrent.

2. Go to the following website and download the torrent.
Windows 7 Download

3. Download a program called magiciso.

4. From that program burn the "image" you downloaded from utorrent onto a DVD.


6. Insert the DVD you burned and follow the steps.


Download the file from there(you need to register and do a bunch of other junk) and then after you download the file you basically just follow the steps I showed you earlier, but they have clear instructions on the site on how to go about installing the new Windows 7.

any questions?
Write in the shoutbox also =D

iPhone Bluetooth application almost here!

This is a video of the first iPhone that has done a file transfer using Bluetooth!
This application will be out on Cydia pretty soon. I will have a video on it as soon it comes out.
This is not from the same makers of SweetTooth. I can almost guarantee you the application that comes out from the makers of SweetTooth will be much better, but it will take some more time for their application to come out. I'll have a video on both and give you my opinion on which on is best. Thanks for watching.
Any questions?

Want to make some fast money? Trust me this is 100% legit

Hey guys seriously check out this website it's amazing to make some quick money.
And don't think you need to be 18 to be able to use this site.
Anyone can use it, because you don't need a credit card for this site at all.
I've made $67.00 so far in the 3 weeks i was on this site.
You have to dedicate like 10 min to the site a day which isn't bad at all.
GET $2.50 just for verifying your phone number!

Here are some tips to make some good money fast
Step 1: Sign up from the following banner.
WHEN SIGNING up use your real address and email address. This is how you will receive your prizes, checks, and offer approval notices.

^^Sign up Here ^^ Trust me this site is completely legit.
Step 2: Make a new email address from Gmail
This will be the email address you use when filling out offers, because the offers will cause a lot of spam.
Step 3: download Roboform. Roboform is a way to program your information into a click of a button so filling out survey's is fast and easy. You just have to press 1 button and all your information will automatically be filled into the correct space (ex. name, address)
In firefox you just have to go to tools-->options--->privacy-->settings (click the checkmark on everything except "offline website data and saved passwords")
After you set that up you can just click tools-->clear private data
Step 5: Enjoy doing offers and make money quick.
I suggest doing "quizrocket" offers first. They are easy and fairly fun.

If you end up doing this PLEASE email with any questions at all.
I will gladly help you out. Like I said before I guarantee this works.
