  • 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

      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.

      I found a new problem or bug. After downloading a song and importing it to the library it doesnt leave the "Downloads" tab in the program and when I go to play it on the iPod it doesnt play at all. Anyone else get this?

      I held off on using this app due to the bugs i have been reading about. Had no choice but to restore my phone yesterday and decided to give this program a try. I may be an update late and some of the issues may have been fixed prior to my post. Yet I figured I would let all know I believe the program is working 100% for me. I will try it out a bit more to see if the 100% is truely accurate. I did something different this time around after restore. I only moved my fonts and ringtones with bosstool. Left apps alone. Seems my phone has less issues with apps now. I may be wrong here but just figured I would share it with all. Anyone able to confirm this?

      Do the downloaded songs actually play in the ipod now? Instead of just sitting there soundless?

      i had same issue, so now i SSH into the media/itunes_control/music folder then i select CHANGED column which is the modified date to the date u downloaded song, goto one of the F* folders, look for islsk****.mp3 files, then just drag/copy to desktop, play it on desktop, then rename it. now its on your computer.

      That's dumb. What if I would like to know if the user is online or not BEFORE starting to download it?

      EDIT: Haven't been keeping track of the thread really, but could someone tell me if there's a way to listen to the song immediately after download?

      ..okay I see we have to import in iTunes first.
