  • 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

      You need to manually create the directory,

      command from ssh/mobile terminal from iphone

      goto \var\root\Media

      use su commmand (just type su)
      enter your root password

      then use this command.

      mkdir Downloads

      this will create a folder with \var\root\Media called Downloads

      then follow the instructions for the permissions.

      After you install MPNlight, click on the ipod from inside MPNlight and change the directory to \usr\root\Media\Downloads and click import.

      did you do this...

      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

      after the permissions also youll need to reboot the iphone....

      Doh! not the /usr directory


      /var/root/Media/Downloads
      After you install MPNlight, click on the ipod from inside MPNlight and change the directory to \var\root\Media\Downloads and click import.

      I have a message that says "Version: Database version 29 is unsupported"

      Untrapped exception Failure (input_buffer: lens = 16776080)

      Usually means not .mp3 format.

      Delete the song in question and redownload.

      Also sometimes reboot, remember this is a beta.

      Also I had the error "Version: Database version 29 is unsupported" from within MPNlight under the import settings within the Ipod function, just ignore this. It plays no effect.

      Easy Way to Fix the problem with the Gurad thing all you have to do is go into WinSCP and press F9 on the folder /applications/Isisk and then the pramissions are right there as 755 change them 2 777 and it works great!

      To fix the import to ipod feature on 1.1.3, 1.1.4 do this in putty, terminal or do control + t in winscp:

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

      This simply makes a sym link in /private/var/root/media that directs the app to /private/var/mobile/media/itunes_control
