Phone Disk - Real Disk Mode for iPhone and iPad
iOS 4, iPhone 4, and iTunes 9.2 Compatible.
Feeling the Jailbreak Blues? Why not get access to your file system and access files directly from your finder while you wait for that unnamed Jailbreak Tool. Phone Disk, from the creators of iPhone Explorer (Macropant), will allow you to mount an iPad, iPhone (4), and iPod Touch to USB disk mode on a Mac. Phone Disk runs in the system tray of your Mac. Once mounted you can use it just like any other USB Drive.
The application supports multiple devices, and gives you access to things like preview, open, edit, etc. Right now Phone Disk is Free, but it won't be forever. Sept 1, 2010, Phone Disk will include a minimal fee, but in the mean time, you can grab a free license and activate it now before this expires.
Download Phone Disk for Mac
If you're a Windows user and need a similar program, iPhone Explorer comes pretty close to Phone Disk for Mac.
Thanks to iLaw-one for the tip

Apple: Crap they have a jb in the works already!!!! But they are waiting for 4.0.1 to drop. Well we can wait.
Dev Team: We know they know that we know how to jailbreak iPhone 4 but are waiting on us. We got time, they are a massive company have customer's phones to fix at some point.

I've heard that the Dev team are working on releasing a program that's just like itunes, in which we won't need itunes for our idevices no more, all the update synch, and apps will be through that program.
And after what I've seen in this program "Phone Disk", it's like a dream how we can just explore the hole device as if it's a hard drive with no complications at all.
So how far are we from the promising "alt-itunes" program, and how would the idevices users, developer, and Apple Inc. deal with it?
Is it just a dream, or will it come true on day just like "Phone Disk"?
Anybody have any clue about it?

from what i understand, this is really Disk mode, just another usb file transfer app. in order for you to say, transfer something between two computers using your phone as a flash drive, you'd need to have this software on both computers.
i'm waiting for something that allows for disk mode like the iPods. You plug them in, they show up on your desktop or in my computer and you can drag and drop away. something like the "enable disk use" feature, but for iphones.

pretty sure this is it if that's what you are looking for hah but yeah you would need this installed on both computers this is true why not just use an app for that? like transport?
