    This will definitely be useful on my 32GB iPhone!

    Is it as useful as "USB Drive" from Dmytro Pohromsky for jailbroken phones? That will let you turn your iPhone into a true USB device that doesn't require any software on the computer you connect it to in order to use it as a USB drive. You can even use it as a bootable USB drive.

    is it just me, or is this this more hassle than it's worth. I mean you'd only be able to access it on other computers if they also had the software installed. you'd also have to cart around the connection cable. just use a pen drive. no mess, easy access.

    on a positive note though at least you could charge up your phone. on the fly. lol

  • Any program that requires iTunes to be installed in order to make the iPhone act as USB Drive is USELESS …

    its awesome but think about it mmmmm u may some time mopve a file with a virus to ur iphone and that doesnt sound good does it ???

  • Z

    yea that would be bad seeing as iphone os obsessively runs any executable sent to it.
    you'd have to run the virus, itd have to be for iphone os, and if you did run it then you're dumb enough to not deserve this hack

    I was hoping to find something to manager music without itunes, the way sharepod lets us do with ipods. Is there a free software for that?

    google USB Drive iphone, works perfectly (makes images that are used as flash drives, not sharing actual directories/files) and even bootable!

  • craig

    not bad software but if you have to restore firmware the whole drive is wiped.

    Doesn't DiskAid already do all of this?
