How to SSH ROMs and Themes! (Also, SSH without WiFi)
First, you have to make sure you have "openssh" installed in cydia.
Second, go to http://www.winscp.net (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 from your computer
1.) Download a theme from any site
2.) UNZIP THE FILE and put the folder on your desktop(or some place you know of)
3.)Drag the folder into private/var/stash/themes
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.
To get GBA/NES ROMs on your ipod touch/iphone add the source
(Once the source refreshes download "Gba Bios file" and any other ROMs you would like)
P.S. For those of you who do not have WiFi you can also SSH like this
