  • 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.

    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

      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.

      By the way… if you can’t get it to import (if it crashes and sends you back to Springboard), follow the following command:

      ln -s /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control /private/var/root/Media

      i tried it all, every step, got rid of the guid problem, then had the no permission to itunes control, fixed that problem, now i could download, but nothing shows up in my downloads, i have the folders already made, in mobile and in root, so i really dont know what to do. permissions set to 777 as well

      i thought that the songs might already be in the music player, but nope, nothing, anywhere, cant even find the files in my phone anywhere....

      Above is the original source for the info below.


      In order to have iSlsk.app working you will need to perform the following steps.

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

      1) check if you have “ioreg” binary in /usr/bin/ directory

      2) If not download it from the link above and upload it to /usr/bin

      2) Connect with ssh/vterm from iphone or however but run the following commands:

      3) chmod 755 /usr/bin/ioreg

      4) chown mobile:mobile /Applications/iSlsk.app/

      5) chown mobile:mobile /Applications/iSlsk.app/*

      6) Download libncurses.5.dylib from the link above and upload only libncurses.5.dylib to /usr/lib

      7) chmod 777 /usr/lib/lib*

      8) mkdir /var/root/Media/Downloads (if it already exists it’s ok)

      9) chmod 777 /var/root/Media/Downloads/

      This last one should fix your itunes import problem.(credit goes to Edward from Touch Podium)

      10) ln -s /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control /private/var/root/Media

      11) Reboot your iphone.

      Once you finished downloading a song from within the iSlsk.app and are trying to import, the app will crash,crash,crash!!!

      The fix...

      Goto iappcat.com and search for MNPlight,
      I added this source to installer...
      http://repo.mkv.mobi

      Once refreshed I searched all packages for MNPlight.

      From within that app (MPNlight) you can click on the ipod and change the directory to /var/root/Mobile/Downloads and click import
      The songs will now show up into your Iphone’s ipod.

      i'm on a ziphone 1.1.4. i couldn't find the downloaded files anywhere, and i'm still very concerned that they are sitting somewhere taking up my valuable space, and i just can't find them (a very windows-ish problem to lose something in your file structure. makes me feel icky.) after reading this whole thread, i decided to go ahead and make a sym link for itunes_control from var/mobile/media/itunes_control to var/root/media/itunes_control and now i can actually see the downloaded files in the islsk downloads tab and in var/root/media/Downloads. still can't import, but i don't really care, i'll just use avplayer until the update. hope this helps someone else. and thanks to all who've contributed to this thread.
