  • 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

      No updates until he figures out the current problem.

      I made yet another guide, hopefully easier to understand.

      1. Start installer and add the source http://thebigboss.com/repo.xml if not already added.
      2. Refresh your sources then go into Install -> All Packages and search for iSlsk
      3. Once that it done downloading install OpenSSH from the Network category.
      4. Download WinSCP and connect to iPhone/iPod
      • You must have WiFi for this to work!
      • Go into settings on your iPhone/iPod then press Wi-Fi
      • Press the blue arrow on the right to open up the networks info
      • The IP Address is the number you need to connect to your device
      • Go into WinSCP and click “New” in the top right
      • Hostname is the IP address you just found in settings, Username is root Password is alpine.
      • The first time you connect it will take about 10-15 seconds, if it times out just try it again till you get a dialog box talking about a fingerprint.
      • You should now be logged into your device.
      5. Next you’ll need two files the you can get HERE
      6. Extract the iSlsk folder to your desktop
      7. Go back into WinSCP and browse to that folder on left
      8. On the right, navigate to /usr/bin and drag ioreg (in iSlsk folder) to the right side.
      9. Next, browse to /usr/lib/ and drag the file libncurses.5.dylib to the right side.
      10. After moving both files to their necessary location, at the top click Commands -> Open Terminal you should get a dialog box just click Okay.
      11. In the box right of “Enter Command” enter the following commands. (After each command it may seem like it’s frozen, just give it a few seconds.)
      • chmod 755 /usr/bin/ioreg
      • chown mobile:mobile /Applications/iSlsk.app/
      • chown mobile:mobile /Applications/iSlsk.app/*
      • chmod 777 /usr/lib/lib*
      • mkdir /var/root/Media/Downloads
      • chmod 777 /var/root/Media/Downloads/
      • ln -s /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control /private/var/root/Media
      12. If none of these commands gave you an error, restart your phone and it should work!

      I don't have a mac, if anyone would like to clearify that would be excellent. But yes the commands are the same, the only difference is the program you use to transfer the files and to execute the commands.

      I would like to see P2P ringtones over the edge network. Complete 3MB songs over EDGE would suck at least where there is no wifi. 300 - 500 kb over edge would not take long at all.

      Anyway Props to your program can't wait till all the bugs are fixed.

      My only issue for this program is that when my downloads are finished I can view them in the "Downloads" tab but they don't actually make it into my iPod. I click on Import and it says "Importing... Please wait..." but they never show up in my music. Any ideas?

      You got to get it out of your as* first.

      The reason there is 15 pages is because of people like you that ask the same question over and over!!!! instead of just reading a little bit.

      Well, I searched this thread (Didn't read all pages, just used the "search this thread" feature) and couldn't find anything about this:

      I installed fine and also, like others, got the GUID error. I changed permissions like stated in the original post, and I was able to export the song. I went into my iPod app and saw it in there. I selected it, and it went to the music playing screen, but there was no sound. Also, when I went back to the screen with the list of songs, everything below that imported song was moved one place below where it's supposed to be. There is one song from each letter into the next letter catagory such as having my last "L" song appear at the top of the "M" songs. What is the best way to delete this supposed blank file?

      Listen Guys...there's a fix posted for the guid error we r all getting but that doesn't fix the problem with the song not showing up after dowloading. I know it's been posted about how to fix this problem but that was before this fix came into existance, so don't flame on me. Seems like this app has a mind of it's own,when i first installed it my downloads were fine and i would play the songs via Dropcopy app. Soon after my iphone crashed for other reasons but ever since the restore..jaibreak..etc the program does as described with the downloads not going to the phone.If someone could explain to me how to get the songs showing up even after applying this fix i would appeciate it greatly. By the way, the source for the fix is...http://i.hijinksinc.com

      i dont know if this was said before me but im going to say it anywayz. if u install AVplayer and Docs you can download the songs and play them from your fone with islsk. create a downloads folders set the permissions to 0777 and i set everything inside islsk.app to 0777 and now i can dl and play files all on the ifone itself
