    For all of you having trouble importing your downloaded music into the ipod player, simply download AVplayer and finder. Browse to /private/var/mobile/Media/Downloads on firmware 1.1.3-1.1.4 or
    /private/var/root/Media/Downloads on firmwares 1.1.2 and lower.
    Select the song you want to play and click open with AVplayer.

    WOW, this is surprisingly useful over edge with 17kb download speeds. Screw Apple and the iTunes music store, they didn't want you downloading music over edge but now we are

    Thank god this thing runs in the background, it'd be a pain in the *** to let the thing go at 18 kb/s.

    Amazing app after a little SSH work

    For me files were going in /private/var/root/Media/Downloads instead of /private/var/mobile/Media/Downloads and Finder doesn't like that location so it couldn't browse to it.

    I did:
    Code:
    ln -s /private/var/mobile/Media/Downloads /private/var/root/Media/Downloads
    and everything is good now.

    Hopefully that helped someone.

    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.

    Thanks to the original creator Errrick who’s website you can consult here."

    I followed the same methods as you and am awaiting an update from errick. But for now, I believe this is the only way to do it. It seems to me that this app was developed for 1.1.1 because all of the folders are in root instead of the normal mobile now. This could cause complications for the program such as writing files to the mobile directory from the root without the proper permissions. So until he updates it to run from mobile, we will have to wait. I haven't checked, but I think the iTunes_Control folder was in root\media before and not mobile\media. This would explain why the files don't show up in the iPod. The program is telling itself to write files to a non-existent location. Just my thoughts, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Make sure you replace all the right files and set permissions to folders that need them.

    Did you create the Downloads folder in mobile/media/ ?
    Then you have to give the folder execultable permission (755) so it can be written to from root. Your files will show up in the downloads folder, but won't import into the iPod.

    There is a update out now for it. Not sure it is the fix for our problems, will find out in a sec.

    Edit: Don't see what it fixed. Still have the error and problem with getting the next file to download once one finishes, have to exit and then open again to get next file to download. Trying a reboot and then maybe a uninstall and then reinstall.
