Platinum running on the iPhone!!!!

Posted on September 27, 2007

So a few weeks ago, I got to play with an iphone at work. I even made an iPhone version of our channel page. Open this link on the iphone (or on Safari 3 Mac/Win) to see it. But I am not a javascript/css guy. I am a native app kinda guy. So I started to look at what the iphone dev team was up to.

Sure enough, they released tools after tools to:
activate the iPhone without a 2 year subscription from AT&T which is the first thing I did of course. Thank you DVD Jon!

– unlock the iPhone to make it work with T-Mobile. I was waiting for this for a long time as I have had a sidekick for years now and wanted to keep my T-Mobile SIM. The day it was announced you could get it for free, I went ahead with these. Took me a whole night. Of course now, you can find a nice gui tool for the noobies that will unlock your toy in 3 min.

– manage to use the T-Mobile Edge network which again I did OF COURSE ! I just had to go to T-Mobile and ask to switch my sidekick Internet plan to the new T-Mobile Internet which for $20/month gives you unlimited access to Internet + access to all the T-Mobile wifi hot spots! Killer for an iphone owner. Check out this page for all the info you ever need.

– Installed the ultimate tool to automatically find/install/update tons of native apps on the phone!

– build a toolchain to be able to compile native apps on the iphone! Now it tooks me weeks to understand how it works, trying it different builds, going through the tutorials, but tonite I was able to build the toolchain 0.3 using these instructions. And voila!

Then I was able to compile the necessary hello world app. But THEN, I figured, what the hell, let’s get Platinum a try. And it worked! (Sorry about the blur, the iPhone camera is not good when too close)

iPhone Platinum UPnP

Well, this is beautiful. I have UPnP running on the IPHONE ! I can see & browse on my iPhone the Windows Media Player running on my XP box, and I can see & browse on my XP box, the UPnP File Media Server running on the iPhone in the /Applications folder!

It’s just so cool when it works … The quality is not great but you can see a video

    Hello. I’m trying to build an app which should stream music from iphone’s library to a specific device. this device has a media renderer (upnp). Currently, i make an export to a mp3 file from an MPMediaItem and then i send it to renderer using a control point.
    Is there a way to share the iphone library? The export process is taking way too long time.

    You can try our own app FullBlast on the appstore which does exactly what you are trying to do:
