    09-11-2011 09:29 PM #1 Tut: Unlimited Free Music on iPhone/iTouch (Grooveshark mobile hack)

    No Joke, no surveys, no googling for songs in safari & downloading them. Just 6 Easy steps. This method is a lil old, but I still thought it would be nice to share with NGU.

    Jailbreak req!

    What you Need:

    Groove Mobile (Cydia)
    UDIDFaker (Cydia)
    iFile (Cydia)
    Grooveshark Account (you can make one on your computer, or from the app itself)

    The thing about the Grooveshark App, is that the free trial is Limited to 15 days/50 plays. The you need to buy their service. Here is what you do (stupid NGU won't let my put droplr files as images, just click the links 4 picture tut):

    Step 1:
    When you open Grooveshark after your trial is up, you will get this ugly message

    Step 2:
    Kill the Grooveshark process via SBsettings

    Step 3:
    Launch iFile, navigate to the path /var/mobile/Library/Grooveshark and delete the file defaultKeyStore.plist

    Step 4:
    Close iFile, Launch UDIDFaker, scroll down to Grooveshark, and tap it

    Step 5:
    Click "Random UDID"
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step 6:
    Launch Grooveshark and login. It will ask you if you want to start your 14 Day 50 Play Trial. Click yes.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Your playlists, offline songs, etc will still be intact! I'm pretty sure it can hold up to 2 gigs of offline music. The only possible catch is that some artists appear to not exist in the Grooveshark libraries. So far the only 2 I've found to be like this were The Beatles, and Lenny Kravitz. However, for the most part, this shouldn't be a problem. The other thing is that you have to do this every time you pass the 50 play or 14 day limit. But once you know how to do it, it takes like only 30 seconds.

    Enjoy!

    UPDATE 11/22/11:

    Actually, they updated their app, and the newest version has no bugs. I'm on 2.5.0, and it doesn't crash or randomly mess w/ ur playlists.

    UPDATE 10/19/11:

    This still works on v2.4.5 (current version), but it has an annoying bug where your offlined songs are randomly deleted. If you are experiencing this, or any bugs below, you can [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    UPDATE 10/1/11:

    The newer version of Grooveshark has many bugs. Some of them are: turning the iDevice on or off while a song is playing may cause it to restart. Your playlists don't show up. You can't make songs available offline. If any of these are happening to you, you can [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. To install it, uninstall Grooveshark from Cyida, SSH into your device via computer, go to /var/root/ Media, create a folder called "Cydia" (if it isn't already there), create a folder called "AutoInstall" (if it isn't already there). Transfer the .deb file into that AutoInstall folder. Reboot.

    If that still doesn't work, you might be able to get your playlists back up by signing out, then back into the app.
