PWN Tunes is the most interesting and useful tweak from Cydia that allows you to turn your iPhone / iPod / iPad into a real portable disk or USB flash drive. Yes, yes, you heard right and I did not make a typo - with this tweak, you can write or read ANY files from the iDevice WITHOUT iTunes installed on your computer! When connected to a PC (yes, only PC with Windows OS on board, Mac is still in flight)
the phone is recognized as a regular USB flash drive with the following folder structure:
- DCIM - photos from the gallery are stored here, you can copy them and add new ones, they will automatically appear in the gallery,
- Downloads - this is your flash drive, copy back and forth everything you want,
- iTunes Music - there is all your music from your phone, you can copy it to your computer, and the file names are correct, and not some crocodile,
- iTunes Purchases - every normal (forgive me those who buy music in iTunes) user won't find anything here,
- Misc - there is a special fix for Windows XP, after applying which Windows will see everything as it should (Windows Vista / 7/8 does not need it),
- My Music - copy any mp3 files here, they are all imported to the iPod automatically with the file name and even the cover art preserved!
Who, after that, would not agree that this is a super-tweak? Although there is one BUT, it is paid. The app costs $ 12.99 on the official PWN Tunes website, but it can be purchased from the BigBoss repository on Cydia for $ 6.99. Do not be greedy, there is no hacked version and is unlikely to be. I found out about this tweak more than a year ago and still does not have a working crack for it, I decided to buy it and now I am happy as an elephant! (this is the only thing I've bought from software in my entire life!). You can pay through your PayPal account and a Visa or MasterCard linked to it (I will tell you how to buy from Cydia in one of the following articles).
Tweak has a free 14-day trial. I recommend to use and appreciate all the benefits.
Another good news is that you can link up to 5 devices to 1 account, if you have several apple devices, you can buy it once. Or you can chip in with your friends. Payment for the tweak is tied to IMEI and is saved when flashing.
