  • Peer 2 Peer File Sharing Hits iPhone / iPod Touch with iSlsk
    We all knew it was coming but now it's here. Peer 2 Peer on the iPhone. The app is called iSlsk and is basically a nice port of Soulseek to the iPhone. With easy to use features you can search other users on their network and download some music.


    video courtesy of app developer errrick | his site

    Where do you get it? Just refresh Installer and look for iSlsk from the Big Boss source.
    edit: if the file stays at 0% in the app its probably because the user sharing the file isn't online

    Features:
    • File Search lets you easily search for files
    • Transfers shows you your que of downloads and download progress.
    • Downloads lets you view what you have downloaded
    • A nice import feature lets you import you files into your music database, allowing you to play them through the normal iPod controls - not working yet . . .

    To get the files you download one of the many apps that allow you to browse the iPhones file directory and browse to /var/mobile/Media/Downloads to play your files. Hopefully the import feature will be fixed soon.

    edit for the FirmwareGUID error first try setting the permissions for the app to 777
    alternatively try this.

    And of course some screenies

      I've been working on this script and I keep getting a "Main script execution failure" message, if anyone can find the problem we will have a nice script to do everything at once . The error is coming from the CopyPath command, i'm pretty sure of that.

      Best way to do is to install the WinSCP and SSH into your phone. Then go to var > mobile > applications and right click on the iSLSK folder. Go in properties and change the value to 0777. That is it. Works fine on my 16gig 1.1.4 iphone.

      thanks to the developer

      Just throwing this out there since the iphone can't protect itself by masking it's IP or anything else...but is anyone concerned about RIAA monitoring soulseek and getting busted for music downloads on a mobile device?

      To learn how to connect to your iPhone and or iPod touch see this post.

      Log in to your iPhone or iPod touch with SSH and do the following:

      1) check if you have “ioreg” binary in /usr/bin/ directory
      2) If not download it from here and upload it to /usr/bin
      3) chmod 755 /usr/bin/ioreg
      4) run chown mobile:mobile /Applications/iSlsk.app/
      5) run chown mobile:mobile /Applications/iSlsk.app/*
      6) Download libncurses.5.dylib from here and upload only libncurses.5.dylib to /usr/lib

      7) run chmod 777 /usr/lib/lib*

      IF you still can’t get it to work i suggest waiting for the next release.

      Thanks to the original creator Errrick who’s website you can consult here."

      I tried all the know methods of fixing the fwguid error and nothin worked on my 1.1.4 but then I installed pnmlight and imported once and then went into islkl after and I don't get the error anymore. I am able to import and see all the songs no problem now

      what is pnmlight? I cant find it in installer


      Also I got an idea I don't know if it will work or if anyone has tried it but I remember hearing everyone saying that it works fine on 1.1.2, if so why not try using FWChanger from installer and set it to 1.1.2

      I did exactly that and it worked like a charm! I d/l FWChanger 2.1 and set my iphone's firmware to 1.1.2 and voila! Before, I changed the isks app folder's permission to 0777 and it got rid of the firewireGUID error, and the music files would import over to the ipod but when I clicked on the file it wouldn't play. But now they play no problem! Thanks for this suggestion. I only hope that my other apps won't have firmware conflict issues by using FWChanger.

      Its the older way of importing songs to your iPod without iTunes. You have to add the source http://repo.mkv.mobi

      i got it to work, but, how to delete the songs from your ipod after importing?

      and, if after importing you want to keep the songs, how to stop itunes "sync" from deleting them?

      after importing, do they go into itunes_control?

      Well, so far the only app that seems not to work with my FWChanger set to 1.1.2 is Cydia...it just crashes when I try to open it. So I just need to change the setting back to 1.1.4 and it works. Just need to remember to change it back to 1.1.2 before starting the islsk app.

      EDIT...Cydia is now seems to be working with the 1.1.2 setting. Not sure why it was crashing b4.

      where it added my song (started with B) it shifted the last song in my "B" section to the C section, very weird.
      and syncing deleted the song altogether

      k well.. as much as I'd love to d/l FW changer and go back and forth for this app, it'd be much appreciated for the dev to come up with sometime of fix..seems like everyone on 1.1.3/4 is having a problem..c'mon, how about a lil help!!

      I have the same problem. When I sync with iTunes it wipes out all the songs I downloaded. So I am to assume the only way to transfer your downloaded songs is to ssh them to your hard drive BEFORE you sync your iphone? If so, that kinda sucks.
