  • [Giveaway] Win A Copy of PwnTunes As A Holiday Gift

    Have you ever wanted to not use iTunes?

    PwnTunes is a jailbreak tweak made possible by a development team known as SpiritOfLogic. If you don't know what it is yet - then you've been missing out. It allows you to completely avoid using iTunes and manage your iDevice media on your own. It even allows you to add content on a friend's computer to your iDevice without erasing the data on your iDevice already from your own computer (like iTunes always makes you do). Additionally, you can use your iDevice as a flash drive, or manage your photos without needing to use iTunes. Basically, PwnTunes makes your iDevice an iTunes-independent device.

    PwnTunes works best with Windows because of the way that it functions. It is capable of working on Mac OS X and Linux as well, but for Mac OS X users to use PwnTunes to manage their iDevice media, they will need to download and install an application called XNJB. The reason for needing this software is because Mac OS X has a, "very restrictive" (Heusinger) way of handling files and due to that, XNJB is necessary for freeing features that are necessary for using PwnTunes on Mac OS X. Windows on the other hand doesn't need any software to use PwnTunes and it works right out of the box.

    With PwnTunes, you can easily add photos to the iDevice via USB sync cable without syncing whole folders back and forth between device and your PC. for example with itunes you sync at home. Another thing is, if you go to another of your computers and it has great music but when you try to sync with the iTunes library, iTunes tells you it will delete all of your music from the other computer you used. No more - PwnTunes makes it so that syncing with other libraries will not delete your library. Instead, it will fuse together to make one large music library. You can also download music via Mobile Safari directly on your iDevice and put it into the My Music folder with iFile and import it into iPod lib with PwnTunes. We don't condone piracy with music - we assume that you are using an online backup for your music files and may need to download them on your device on the fly. With PwnTunes, files are literally dragged and dropped into your iDevice and they are available for playing.

    PwnTunes with iOS 5 support has been released. The version that is compatible with iOS 5 will be version 1.4.0.1. It works also with iOS 4 for those of you who have not updated yet. The video above offers a small demonstration of the tweak (compliments of Christian Heusinger).

    To me, the idea of being untethered from iTunes seems like a burden lifted from my chest. Sometimes I use computers where iTunes isn't installed and this would allow me to use them to manage my music or add more to my iDevice. Maybe if you're somewhere like work where computers are locked off from installing arbitrary software like iTunes, PwnTunes will come in handy for you. It also works great for school computers where software and Windows features are locked off from use. This tweak was built upon a great idea and expended to amazing results - I couldn't be happier with what it does and I recommend it to anyone looking into not using iTunes to manage their iDevice media.

      Here are my top 5 reasons as to why "I" (this includes me and myself as well which equals 3 free copies) deserve a free copy of PwnTunes.

      1) I strongly feel that having this software would be the much anticipated cure to the QWERTY indentation on my forehead as a result of slamming my head down on my keyboard every time those damn 1314 errors occur.

      2) Getting a free copy of PwnTunes would save me SOOOOOOOOO much time in having to relentlessly hunt down and seek a pirated copy, or a cracked version of your software. (you never can trust those darned illegal download sites!)

      3) Me love PwnTunes long time!!!

      4) I also deserve it because you owe me! I am claiming royalty rights on the name of your software, being I was one of the original users of the term Pwned ( from way back in the early online gaming days)

      5) I will make all of my friends so jealous when I get to brag to them that I have a free copy of PwnTunes that I CANNOT EVEN USE YET because my 4s is not jail broken yet!

      P.S. Thank you for your generosity, Merry Christmas. I hope I cracked a smile, and for the record, I support developers through legitimate purchases! Bless you all!

      4s = no access to cydia account yet! So if I am a winner, please contact through Modmyi if possible

      5) Most important , I can relay to all my friends how great this is .

      Well, firstly I want to make sure I am clear on this. You see I wish to own iTunes, so I worry as this allows me to only pwn tunes. If you could please clarify for me whether or not this program can also own iTunes, and by this I mean give me free range over all of my music, that would be great. However, I should mention that if pwn'ing is any type of dark art that may risk my standing with Santa, I want to know part in this matter. Also, if this mythical program 'tunes', is not iTunes, but some sort of play on words, or worse yet some sort of adult oriented cartoon material with a fancy nickname, again I want no part of it. Now, if I am mispronouncing it, and it is supposed to be pwntu NES, and functions as some sort of NES emulator, then I do want it although I am not sure what Pwntu means, and if that again is anti-christmas I do not want it.

      To recap: I apparently don't understand many things (even after reading the above).

      So inclusion, perhaps my stocking will be pwned (get it, you can't pwn a real thing the same way you can a device!).

      I think I made my point clear, good day, and watch out for Santa on X-Mas, I lost my mother to him last year.

      Let me start off by saying thank you Christian Heusinger, for your generosity and true showing of Holiday spirit. I would love to get a copy of PwnTunes. I had to set up a google account and sync it with Cydia just for this giveaway because this is the only Cydia app i have every wanted. I tried the free trial and loved every second of it. Freedom from Itunes is all i really want this Christmas. My 2nd gen iPod touch is still running strong and all need to complete it is a copy of PwnTunes. I think I deserve a copy of PwnTunes because I really want to get music off my friends computer, and would be eternally grateful for a free copy. I would use it on both my iPod 2nd gen and my new iPhone 4s when it becomes available. Thank you very much for consideration, Happy holidays everyone.

      As I sit here in Mexico attempting to post my comment on dial-up speed internet (no kidding), Pwntunes would be a wonderful gift for Christmas. My family doesn't really give gifts for Christmas and this would definitely brighten my day. With Pwntunes, I would be able to sync new songs quickly on trips away from my computer like on an airplane or a trip to the local 7-11 xD. Considering my laptop is more of a replacement desktop, lugging an iTunes capable computer isn't viable for me at all times. Can you imagine me holding a 6 pound laptop with one hand while tapping away at the trackpad with the other with the iPod dangling on a wire below?

      Lol, came back from Mexico, checked page and didn't see comment... Reposted what I had typed. Good thing I saved it into a txt file xD

      I deserve to win a copy of PwnTunes because......

      1) I won 2nd place in my 6th grade Speling Bee Competiton
      2) I'm a HUGE, and let me say HUGE fan of purchasing whatever sounds good to my ears - this tweak will definitely be useful as heck to me as I can easily drag and drop my new favorite tracks on the go
      3) In real life, I'm as polite as this bear Polite Bear Waves Hello - a waving bear - YouTube
      4) If I win a copy of PwnTunes, then you get +10 Karma points (if you want more points, then you will have to give me another copy! jk! 1 copy is more than enough!)
      5) What is the best Christmas present in the world? A broken drum - you can't beat it!.

      Hi,
      I would really like to win this copy of pwntunes because the only thing i got from my parents this year were some stinky old socks. I didn't wont these socks at all so i asked them why bought them. And they told me that i had forget them on the dinmer table and that made them really angry. I was so sad.

      So it would be a really god ending of the story if i would win afterall a copy of the pwntunes which is the best tweak i can imagine.

      Pleasepleaseplease rescue my holidays.

      I would love a copy of this software!
      I feel like I deserve a copy of PwnTunes because,


      1) iTunes is beyond restrictive, and the ability to drag and drop, would be AMAZING!
      2) I can share media amongst pcs! Work, Home and School!!!!
      3)In the event of a Zombie takeover, I would have time to grab some good jams, and not have to wait for iTunes to SYNC..
      4)Were in a recession...who the hell can afford 12.99...besides, I spent all of my dinero on booze, and hookers..
      5) Because the ability to not mix libraries sucks, I want my library so mixed it looks like a red headed eskimo eating su su chicken, and sippin on grape soda!

      I would love to get a copy because

      1.) My parents still wont let me get a Red Ryder BB gun because they think ill shoot my eye out and PWNTUNES is the 2nd thing on my christmas list.
      2.) I will finally be able to add chick music from my little sisters library without the music showing up on my itunes and my boys make fun of me for it.
      3.) This tweak is the best thing in Cydia and it will definitly get more of my friends into jailbreaking when I show them this.
      4.) I made my family disappear and this would be awesome to compile all of their music onto one device so I can jam out endlessly while im Home Alone.
      5.) My wifes a biotch sometimes and she deleted my whole music library off my netbook and I can't sync to the other computer without losing all my music for good.

      I would love to see how PWNTunes works on my iPad and Mac. Although I am content with how iTunes deals with my media, having options is what jail breaking is all about. Thanks Mr. Heusinger for being so generous this holiday season! I would take Mr. Bouchard and Heusinger out on a date, but that's kinda creepy, no? lol. Although I would love to learn from a great dev as him, so maybe we could- no, still creepy. Thanks again folks! My Cydia account number is 2306.

      I should really have PwnTunes' on my iPhone because I lost all of my around 5000 songs last year when I tried to upload one single song from a friend's computer. I literally cried for 2 days because some of these songs were my own rips which I could never be able to found again. For others, it took me about 94353413471 hours to restore, and it was the most boring thing I faced to remember all these tracks names and find them.

      I was then noob to iTunes and I didn't know I'd lose these tracks. I want a world as I imagined before, one that I never lose my goodies on my iphone. I hope I can have it with Pwntunes.
