  • 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

      SSH into your phone. Once you have the right software for your OS it shouldn't be hard to figure out how to create a new folder.

      Use your devices IP address and username: root, password: alpine.

      Then, find the location you want to put the folder in and right-click "New>Directory".

      any fix for this? should i keep proceeeding? any help would be greatly appreciated as this is all new to me. thanks.

      i uninstalled and wanted to start over and now i get an error in installer that says "Error: Package download failed!" any help would be greatly appreciated. i think trying to SSH everything on my own ended up just ******* things up for myself. ughhhhhh!

      I have a problem even after downloading the update today.. I can search and download files (mp3s) without any problem, but when I go to the ''Downloads'' tab, there is nothing at all there, just the text that says you have to navigate there manually... what can I do to make it work, please?

      Am I wrong when I say the update to this app did not in any way fix the issue of finding and playing the downloads?

      Program works fine over wifi! My only complaint is not being able to edit the download like artist name, album, track name. And maybe even gather album art. That would make this app perfect. Right now its a great app though. I can't connect via edge though. Is this wifi only?

      @ timliora
      Did you try doing a hard restart on your phone? That could probably fix your problem. I know that made it work for me.

      Do the files import into your iTunes Library on the computer when synched? (sunch? lol)

      And does most stuff in 0.2b work well? I heard of many problems with 0.1...

      I can download the files fine over Edge. Are you saying they don't show up in your ipod library or download section of the app if you don't use wifi?

      Also, did you guys change the permissions with iphonebrowser or another program before it worked? All I did was download the current version on installer and then hard reset and files don't show up after download for me.

      Is it necessary to change the permissions to make the downloads show up in the download section?

      When i use iphonebrowser it says "Iphone connected, not jailbroken" even though it is jailbroken. Finder won't change the permissions and I can't do it with iphonebrowser so if this is my problem I'm sh!t outta luck.

      timliora, download WinSCP, then SSH into your iphone, google the program. after install of program, go into your phone, type in device IP address, goto iphone, settings/WIFI/ it should be something like this: 192.168.1.***, the last set is different, in WinSCP
      USER: root
      PASS: alpine

      then goto var/root/media/downloads/
      right click download folder, properties, change to 0777

      good luck

      thank you so far. im stuck at var/root/media

      after that, i only show a library folder. do i need to create a media and downloads folder?

      This program does not put the downloads in the download section if you don't use wifi. Edge will download the files, but you can't find them.
