  • 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

      downloads are pretty fast by the way. i am downloading nas - hip hop is dead at 45kbs.
      yea it have to do with sync your iphone/ipod touch to the computer. Now im right now trying my hardest to find a workaround for the problem people not find there stuff. Someone said they made a folder gave it permissions and it worked I tried and no-go. I even checked the permissions on the application it self. But killed the phone now in a restore and im goin to try again. I know I didnt have to do half the stuff that im trying for windows thank god I sync mine on Linux cause i hate windows. But I thought it was a great application sorry about the problems right now guys. Even they developer of the application has a few comments about that problem. Hopefully he will take care of the problem quick its still under beta so thats what you get for now.

      "Your Firewire GUID couldn’t be recognized and therefore music importing will not be available.

      To solve this issue, you will need to do some hacking.

      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.

      This fix worked for me...

      I was able to download a song from someone, when it finished it showed up under the downloads tab, then I clicked import and when that finished the song disappeared. I found it in my ipod app on my iphone listed under "unknown", but it will not play it. I logged into my phone via ssh and found the song, copied it to my hard drive and it played just fine... hmmmmm

      Quoting myself here... I downloaded another song, once it finished, imported to library. Opened up the ipod app, found it the new song and it plays like a champ

      Great app!!
