      Just download MewSeek (buy it or get “another” version) and add it to your iPod over there. Works perfectly here :)

      Only the latest versions of iFile have this, so maybe you need to update. Hmmm, you’re not using a pirated copy of iFile, are you?

    Is there any way to transfer the downloaded mp3 to the iPod library without jail breaking the iPhone? I’m using the “free mp3″ app from AppStore but I haven’t been able to transfer it to the iPod without using a computer.

    Note: on iPhone Mewseek still shows ”Add to iPod” button but it still works. I had no problem adding the mp3 to the phone. iPhone still press the “Add to iPod” button.

    Download to /media/downloads then open MewSeek add to iPod from there

      Can confirm that this does indeed with Mewseek. Sure it’s a little more clunky but it does work. Now to find a way to do it for free. Stinking paid hacks!

    Add to iPod Library isn’t there anymore =
    @roza: It doesn’t have to be MP3 and I doubt “Free Music” has the Add to iPod Library function.

     iFile says it using Gremlin2 package to import to iTunes.  The Gremlin2 package says it is not compatible with iOS 5.

    Doesnt work in iOS 5 cause there is no 
    Safari Download Manager  for ios5 yet. Also, used anotehr plugin to download mp3 and went to the file by iFile but no option to Addd to iPod.

    •  
      Pesmerga2 years, 2 months ago

      Hi,

      You can use any other download manager that works with iOS 5. As for iFile, it needs to be registered and is the latest version, since it comes with Gremlin library that allows you to add songs to the iPod.

    •  
      Pesmerga2 years, 2 months ago

      Hi,

      You can use any download manager that works in iOS 5. Then use iFile to import the mp3 file, although iFile needs to be registered and the latest version since Gremlin library comes with it, which lets you add songs to the iPod library.

      Hope that helps!!
