    iPhone/iPod Touch music player with linux support!!!

    Hi everybody,

    Some of you own an iPhone or an iPod Touch i bet, and you can't upload music from Ubuntu since you upgraded to 2.0 firmware -_-. I have great news for you ( for all the poeple who doesn't like iTunes actually ), an app is going to be released soon on Cydia, it's called pwnPlayer, i'm in touch with the developper (Errrick) and he's doing a great job on that, his player is going to be far better than the official one.

    You'll be able to upload music on your device via wifi ( sftp or samba share for exemple ) and listen to it with that player.
    The player will have extra features like lock screen controls, search in library, etc
    For more information and a video please visit: http://www.pwnplayer.com/
    Some very cool features are coming like plugin support(!!!) sharing library with other devices via wifi etc
    The author hope the linux community will pay interest in his work, I do

    PS: if somebody want to make a planet post about this, feel free to do it

    Great stuff Looking forward to that.

    Any idea on a release date?
    Do you know if it works with 2.1 as well?

    Cheers

    That's nice.

    Next audio player I'm buying will be an iAudio from Cowon, most likely. They advertise Linux support, and their players look great

    Go to http://www.cowonglobal.com/, click on MP3, you'll find that all models do that

    All well and good but this requires a jailbroken ipod touch or iphone. From the latest info I've read iphone 3G and 2nd Gen Ipod Touches still cannot be jailbroken.
    So in order to even think about using this soon, you'd need an ipod touch first gen or a non 3G Iphone, which would have to be jailbroken.

    I can't speak for the new touches but I can say 100% that the 3G is jailbroken. I've had mine cracked for days after 2.1 came out.

    Problem now is that there doens't appear to be any movement on the new ipod hashing scheme. Hopefully sometime soon but theres little to no information out there about it.

    That looks pretty good, I was looking into openMOKO.

    You're right Zavius, I read on http://blog.iphone-dev.org/ and I read unlocked as jailbroken for the 3g iphone. So it looks like we are still waiting for 2nd gen touches to be jailbroken but everything else looks good.

    iPhones 3G are jailbreakable

    Actually with Apple DNA, there is no other choice than jailbreak to make a really usefull app (background listening, double tap on home controls etc). And with the features that are comming (seeqpod download, library sharing over wifi, ...) it would never have been accepted in the App Store .

    edit: release very soon, within 2 weeks i think from what errick said he had still to do( and of course no problem with 2.1...)
