    Does anyone have a guide to get firefly media server installed onto a jailbroken v2 firmware 1st gen iphone? If it’s possible?

    I found this invaluable to share music at mates houses and I hope there is a V2 firmware version of it floating around somewhere!

    Thanks!

    Why not download SimplifyMedia? It allows sharing your iTunes library over the net. And now there’s an iPhone client.

    Does anybody know if there are plans to make a plugin for firefly that will co-exist with simplifymedia and support streaming to iTunes clients via the net without having to make a VPN, etc…

    Their system is awesome but running two media servers simultaneously bogs my system down.

    1. Install FireFly Media Server via Cydia
    2. SSH to your iPhone as root and create an /etc/mt-daapd.conf file:
      #
      # mt-daapd.conf
      #
      # Edited: Fri Sep 19 14:53:31 2008
      # By: root
      #
      web_root /usr/share/mt-daapd/admin-root
      port 3689
      admin_pw alpine
      mp3_dir /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music
      servername My iPhone
      runas mobile
      playlist /etc/mt-daapd.playlist
      extensions .mp3,.m4a,.m4p
      db_dir /private/var/cache/mt-daapd
      rescan_interval 300
      scan_type 2
      always_scan 1
      logfile /var/log/mt-daapd.log
      process_m3u 1
      compress 1

      I recommend changing the admin password.

    3. Create a /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.fireflymediaserver.mt-daapd.plist file




      Label
      org.fireflymediaserver.mt-daapd.plist
      Program
      /usr/sbin/mt-daapd
      ProgramArguments

      /usr/sbin/mt-daapd


    4. Register your new /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.fireflymediaserver.mt-daapd.plist file with launchctl:
      launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.fireflymediaserver.mt-daapd.plist
    5. Add a BossPrefs custom service to start and stop the server
      Name: FireFly
      Start: launchctl start org.fireflymediaserver.mt-daapd.plist
      Stop: killall mt-daapd
      Process: /usr/sbin/mt-daapd
      Icon: /Applications/BossPrefs.app/firefly.png
    6. Enjoy your music

    FireFly won’t stay on in Boss Prefs. It stops every time I leave the Boss Prefs screen. For that matter, it doesn’t auto-start either. (Basically I have not been able to get it to work at all.) There are also TWO FireFly controls listed in Boss Prefs – even though I only added ONE.

    I copied and pasted the conf and plist directly from your post. Are there permissions chmod/chown that need to be set?

    Doesn’t start from command line either – indicating that I’ve done something wrong. While I try to figure out what it is, can you suggest places to look?

    Let me answer my own post… I have fat fingers.

    Typing error. I’m in and happily streaming away!
