What this is About

For the past couple of days I have been working a little script that allows you to use your iPod Touch or iPhone on Ubuntu in Rythmbox or Banshee. I will post the source of the script and a download link to it as well below please give me credit if you steal this and if you want to know more about the process go to my site ianmarmour.com and read the post.

How to Use

chmod +x IpodTouch3gInstaller.sh Than type
./IpodTouch3gInstaller.sh That will initiate the installer.

# init
function pause(){

# other stuff
pause 'Press any key to continue…'
