iSlsk got an update tonight to v0.2.1b. This release adds one major feature. The iTunes Resync option. This function fixes the issue that when you sync your iPhone or iPod touch that all your downloaded music was erased. However, if you have/had the ‘manually manage my music library’ option activated on iTunes you won’t need to use it. All downloaded music can now be found in a folder ‘imported’ in your downloads directory. If you navigate to this folder you can quickly transfer all your downloaded music back to your machine via SSH, iPhoneBrowser or any other app you’d like to use.

1) Locate and install the update.

2) Let’ start the app and have a look.
When you launch the app for the first time, it will give you a warning. Tap ok after the timer.
You will need to setup your account before you can download. If you have a account enter it, if you don’t, just enter a username + password and the app will register you.

3) The options window has the new feature to re-sync your music. Only use this if you have synced your iTunes playlists and your downloaded music has been removed.

4) Go to the File search tap and search for a artist or song. Select the song you’d like and download it.

5) Go to the transfers window to check if it’s downloading.
Soulseek works with slots, so if you want to download a very popular song, it might be possible that you will have to wait for quite some time.

6) When downloads are finished, they will become green. Let’s go to the downloads tap and select the song you’d like to listen to. You can chose to import your songs directly into the iPod application.
Please remember that if you do import the songs into your iPod, there’s a big chance that the artist sorting will get mixed up.

7) If you do have imported the music into your iPod, just start the iPod application and you will find your downloaded songs.

This little app is available in the Installer.app through the BigBoss packaging source, see our sources page.

    HI, this app is really gr8, but its not saving agn,like when I choose to import the files it says importing files den I go to check my library but nothing is there, knowing that the last version was working.

  3. Stephen Says:

    I’m having the same problem as saeed. I havent tried the new resync option because I’m afraid it might break something.

    The songs successfully download but do not import propely then end up disapearing entirely.

    Guys,
    I would try the import function anyway. You can find the files that you downloaded in the directory /var/mobile/downloads . If your native player doesn’t work, you can always try ZodPlay or have a look at this post and play the files with avplayer.
