    Default MobileMusic Player/iTunes Replacement


    To download and play music what do you use? Typically the iPhone's included iTunes store to purchase albums and then the MobileMusic Player (iPod feature) to play your music.

    Coming soon to Jailbroken iPhones everywhere (the beta testers got their copies a few days ago) PwnPlayer and iSoulSeek will look to provide the same service and functionality as the stock options except free downloads and a few other neat features thrown in the mix.

    iSoulSeek is a newer 2.0 version of iSlsk a very popular port of SoulSeek to the iPhone. If you aren't familiar with SoulSeek it is a peer to peer file sharing app that has a lot of users sharing their music. The original iSlsk did a great job bringing this to the iPhone allowing you to download music and then import it directly into your music library. We've been waiting for iSlsk on firmware 2.x for awhile but there has been a major hiccup in the process - the import into your music library doesnt seem to be possible.

    To solve the import problem developer errrick has created PwnPlayer (featured in the video above) to play music files from a directory on the iPhone. PwnPlayer looks like a great alternative to the current iPhone iPod feature and has a ton of features.
    • Plays from the file directory. Just throw your music in to a directory on your iPhone via sftp or iphonebrowser and PwnPlayer will recognize it and allow playback. No more syncing with iTunes to add music! This feature also allows playback of music downloaded via iSoulSeek.
    • Music Library compatibility allowing you to use both the current iPod app and PwnPlayer.
    • Search for music. You can search your music for the song/artist/album you are looking for.
    • Lock-Screen gesture controls to allow you to control PwnPlayer while your iPhone remains locked.



    • CoverFlow. Just like coverflow in the current iPod app there is a coverflow option in PwnPlayer. At the moment it only works with music in your iTunes library.
    • PwnPlayer runs in the background so you can do other things while listening to music.
    • SpringBoard integration allows you to see see current song info on the lock screen and also allows for the lock screen music controls.
    • Playlist managing allows you to create and manage your playlists.

    Future releases of PwnPlayer will also include more features like Plug-ins, Video playback, possible genius support, and syncing with the iPhone's music library if the security checksums are cracked.

    This combination of iPhone software looks like great fun and I am eagerly waiting the public release. For more info check out errrick's blog.

    Thanks Cody for the tip

    Wow this is amazing I cant wait till this comes out. Dont get me wrong seeqpod is great but sometimes I just cant find the songs that I would like, and it lacks some of the features the regular ipod on the iphone does.

    What a pointless App. It basically just duplicates the iPod app on the iPhone with a few unnecessary bells and whistles, EXCEPT search. Stupid.

    FREE music downloads? How does that work out? Is it just going to have albums/tracks that artists provide for free?

    Are there people out there that are NOT willing to runs Windows or OSX but ARE willing to get an iPhone. I am sure the answer is yes but... REALLY? I would like to meet this rare breed, lol. I met only one guy in the dorms five years ago who swore by Linux alone, but he would never go near anything else (iPhone wasn't around yet but I am SURE the answer would be NO) All other Linux users I knew (and there were a lot; I was in the computer engineering dorm as an Aggie, LOL) had Windows up and running as well.

    In any case, good point though, if you are one of those who runs only Linux your prayers have been answered.

    Well, I made a small donation to the developer and when he sent my the app to install it sounded like there would be another beta first before it was released so you might still have a week or two to wait.

    Or you could always send $5 or $10 as a donation to get access to the beta.

    I have been beta testing PwnPlayer for a few days, and IMO this is not a pointless app at all. In fact I am more excited about this app than anything else I have come across in the app store or cydia. I really get into the music features of the iPhone, and there are limitations in the current iPod app that I have wanted a solution to for some time.

    The ability to download new music from seeqpod, or soulseek or whatever and being able to play it right away and add it in to my playlists without running home and plugging into itunes makes it a truly valuable app to me!

    And being able to create and save multiple custom playlists on the fly is something the iPod app should have had in the beginning.

    Not to mention the lockscreen controls that are integrated into the player for quick song skipping and such that i think will be a big bonus for touch users who don't have the headphone controls.

    This is by no means a duplicate of the iPod app, and these "bells and whistles" are far from unnecessary.

    so there's my two or three cents.
