i can't get ssh connected for some reason. I keep seeing an operation timed out. Should i have a very strong wi-fi connection in order for me to get through?
and if it's not necessary how do i advance to the next step?

You need to put this into WinSCP to get remove the symlink:
mv /var/root/Media.old /var/root/Media
If you are windows and attempting to get WinScp to work, try downloading natetrues sshify kit and get the iphonintereface.exe from the latest ibrickr version.
Also I'm not sure if it matters or not, but using the "putfile" command and putting au.asn.ucc.matt.dropbear.plist as well as the other file the tutorial tells you to add because sshify somehow hasn't might be needed as well. The password will subsequently be changed the "alpine" and no longer "dottie". This process worked for me and I'm not sure I can attribute it to any of this, but after 5 attempts using the guide provided by MMI and having it return results I was less than happy with, I tried this and it worked for me as well as a few other window users.

I've already done all that and have installer and a bunch of other apps on my phone and they are working, the only problem is that memory issue.

rm stands for remove (you created that so it would trick the update)
mv renames the value "Media.old" to "Media"
what in the media folder controls the memory for itunes?

my var/root/ looks like this
that is what the two commands did and are suppose to do
so why am i still at 300mbs?

Pay CLOSE attention it appears the indicator that winscp uses to show whether or not something is a symlink is that little arrow overlay. Not ideal which is why I recommend using Putty or something and doing this via ssh on the iPhone itself so you can be SURE you're deleting the right thing.
