    Has anyone tried to use the iPod app from an iPhone? I'd love to consolidate my Music and Video icons into a single icon, but editing the plist doesn't seem to do that for me.

    Anyone?

    It probably also requires some clever extra tinkering. Maybe check to see how the iPhone firmware looks like as far as placement for a lot of the stuff in the Video and Music apps in the Touch, and replicate it in the Touch root.

    You can join the Music and Video apps together:

    1. FTP into /Applications/MobileMusicPlayer
    2. Open up Info.plist in Property List Editor
    3. Change UIRoleInfo>0>Platforms>0 from M68 to N45.
    4. Change UIRoleInfo>1>Platforms>0 from N45 to M68.
    5. Add a com.apple.mobileipod-MediaPlayer item in /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/N45AP.plist

    Basically gives the same result, good luck :D

    Well, here's an interesting problem.

    I did the mod (above) and tried to play back a TV show I bought off iTunes. It didn't work, so I tried an iTunes music (not iTunes Plus) purchase. It wouldn't play, either.

    Looks like this hack is too good to be true, for now. :( Anyone have a copy of the iPhone's app to compare this to? The difference has to be pretty trivial.

    SFTP is secure file transfer and is part of the SSH service, which your iPod will have installed after jailbreak. FTP isn't secure (i.e. the data isn't sent in an encrypted form) and your iPod won't have an FTP server on

    The touch has separate buttons for Music and Video, whilst the iPhone just has a single 'iPod' button.

    Hmm. I found this on another thread. Notice the iPod icon on the bottom row.

    That's my iPod, but there's a problem.

    Reverting to the original MobileMusicPlayer.app doesn't seem to have fixed the problem, so I'm not sure what's going on. I'm tinkering with it now.

    so chrisbrightwell,

    on your other thread it seems you have got the DRM issue fixed. Does this mean that the hack that user PowerFullMac posted works? the thing with merging music and video into one iPod icon and DRM still working?
    Please confirm that it doesnt break DRM, i might merge it right now

    Joshi3Joshi;

    I used this hack and it worked excellently, and I'm playing "Greenlight", which I bought from the iTunes store, right now.

    In order to edit plist files, you must have the Xcode application installed. You can install it from your tiger CD, or from the ADC member site (free DL, you just have the be a member of the dev community)

    Ok, so I got the application working, as seen here:

    [​IMG]

    But as you can see, the icon isnt in the dock. Here is the xcode window where i edited the N45AP.plist file. Did i put the com.apple.mobilemedia string in the wrong place?

    yes, move com.apple.mobileipod-MediaPlayer into the buttonBar array, that is nested in the displayOrder Dictionary... if you need more help i can post a screen shot.
