iPod app hack - Remove iTunes requirement.
One rather important hack (at least to me) that I am surprised to not have seen anyone discuss yet is some sort of hack allowing the iPod app to play songs (mp3ís + other formats) stored as regular files on the iPhones file system.
Depending on iTunes to transfer songs to the iPhone is rather annoying especially for those of us who primarily use operating systems in which iTunes is not available.
Ideally this functionally would be made available:
- Ability to mount iPhone as USB mass storage device, or transfer songs using currently available SFTP implementation.
- An implementation of an alternate player to the built in iPod app (like rockbox) would work except for the fact that integrated functionality would be lost as well as the communication with external devices (like car ipod integration) would be lost.
A hack to the ipod app allowing it to play straight mp3ís from a directory on the file system, as well as USB mass storage compatibility would be ideal.
