    I have a jailbroken iphone. I just copied a bunch of my friends mp3's to my itunes library. The problem is i do not like all of his songs. I do not want to sit at my pc and manually go through all the songs. What i want to do is use shuffle on my iphone and flag the songs i do not like and have them be deleted when i sync with my pc. Is this possible?

    Actually, yes you can... With a little trick.

    You can give ratings for each song on your iPhone (or any iPod which has a screen). Pick a rating, let's say one-star, to rate the songs you would like to delete. In iTunes, you can either manually rank the songs to see which songs has one-star, or you can also create a smart-folder which lists songs with one star automatically. Either way, you can remove those songs from your list easily.

    You can't delete them automatically once you sync to iTunes. However, you can place all the tracks in an On-the-Go playlist, and then do a simple delete once you sync to your iTunes.
