    My sansa view 16 gb mp3 player is on life support after 3 wonderful years of service and I've decided to get an ipod touch to replace it. deciding factors to join the rest of the world, 32gbs of space, ipod games

    I recently heard about a square enix ipod only rpg which is suppose to be great
    please tell me which are the best games to get on your ipod touch and state regular or homebrew please

    Chaos Rings is the Square Enix game. I only played a little bit of it but so far it's pretty much your average JRPG, but with only two party members at a time as opposed to four.

    My recommended iPod Touch games are:
    Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars - iPod version is the definitive version of this game in my opinion.
    N.O.V.A. - Halo clone, plays extremely well considering the graphics.
    Dungeon Hunter - Action RPG hack-n-slash game, similar to Diablo.
    Angry Birds - Simple physics based game, but it's the #1 app in the AppStore and rightfully so.
    Labyrinth 2 - Tilt a ball through an obstacle course. Great use of the accelerometer.

    These are all regular games; I haven't even tried any homebrew games yet.

    I jailbroke so i could multitask and change the themes. Even though the latest firmware allows you to multitask without jailbreaking it lagged like hell on doodle jump without anything else running...It's also under freeware so if something happens because of firmware they can't be responsible iirc. Also i got bored so i spent 9 hours implementing an android like theme, had widgets and things ^.^ but getting back to the point here's the must have homebrew apps

    Infintiboard - lets you scroll vertically
    SBsettings - Nice swipe to see settings, extreamely useful
    tabs in safari
    SSHing - Place files anywhere in your ipod directory (CUSTOM TAPTAP!) forgot how to enable this though >.<
    there's also an app that lets you download straight from safari ^.^

    ^ to enable SSHing, you need to download openSSH in Cydia

    or you can save yourself the bother of SSH and download iFunBox which is completely free and simple and has no need for wifi

    While I agree that SFTP is not optimal for file transfers, that's not really the primary function of SSH. SSH let's you remotely run commands via any PC terminal, which is incredibly useful for everything from package installation to error correcting.
