    you have to ssh into your ipod
    if you don´t know how to do it:

    1.download openssh with cydia
    2.download and install winscp to your computer
    3.connect your ipod to your computer
    4.open winscp
    5. in host name, put in your ip-adress
    port number must be 22
    username is: root
    passwort is: alpine
    6. click login
    7. search the downloads folder of installous (i think it was in /var/mobile/downloads or var/mobile/library/downloads,not sure google it)
    8. put your ipa file into the folder and then you can install it with installous on your ipod

    The easiest way is to patch your mobileinstallation if you want instructions PM me because I don't want to get in trouble but it alot easier the OpenSSH

    Edit: you need to patch your mobile installation before you do the openssh trick as well

    @ hullo8d
    can you pm me too? i wanna know a bit more about this patch
    @ clegion
    there is similar program for mac but i forgot the name
    and instad of downloading the ipa with your computer it would be easier to download it directly with installous (there is no other way to install ipa files)
    EDIT:
    i think with patch you mean jailbreak because i haven´t patched anything but i can ssh

    A much easier way is to install appsync for 3.1.2 in cydia, download cracked apps (making sure they are the latest version because you can't update them using the app store, it'll just pop up with an error message if you try) then drag and drop them into iTunes. They can now be used like normal
