On your Mac:

1. Install and register the widget "eBay Watcher" on your mac.
2. Run Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access on your Mac and select the item eBayWacher
3. Your token is the entire entry in "Show password" field

On iPhone:

1. Install My Ebay via Installer.app
2. Install OpenSSH (if you have not already done so)
3. SSH into your iPhone
4. Type: vim /Applications/My\ eBay.app\Data.plist
5. Find the key for Token and place the token from your Mac's widget in there (if you have never used vim, press i to insert before typing, then press ESC when you are done).
6. Type: :wq

There will not be an icon. In runs in the BSD subsystem.

Download FUGU and use it to ssh to your phone.

Your phone has to be on the same wi-fi network of your mac. It does not need to be cradled.

user: root
pass: dottie
port 22

You are going to need to be on wifi with your mac and iPhone for Fugu to connect.

Not necessarily.

You could edit the plist on your Mac, as instructed here:
http://homepage.mac.com/jordy2/ebaywatcher/USA/iPhone.html

(That page has a link to download the app, which contains the plist.)

Once you have the edited plist on your Mac, you could then use Sendspace.com to upload it (you can setup an account if needed, it's free).

Then you could install iShare on the iPhone and use that to download the plist from SendSpace. You'll likely need to delete the copy on the iPhone before downloading.
