USB Drive 1.1 is outdated and not supported.

I am sorry to inform you, but current version of  USB drive is very old and don't supported for years. I never tested it with latest devices and  iOS. I still keep it in repository for pure historical reasons and for the inquring minds :)

Q: Will you release USB Drive 2.0?
A: I don't know, but there is a chance.

Q: Will you release source code to the public?
A: No.

Hope to remove this post sometimes in the future.

I hope to see support of USB v2.0 one day. Thank you for your products!

USB drive was one of the most useful apps on Cydia and I really hope to see it updated for iOS 5 and the 4S. I would pay money and I'm sure many others as well to see it updates and with a way to view the files on the device.
Keep up the good work!

this is the only way using USB without app or itunes. That's really great, i'm ready to pay for a USB 2 version !

I agree, very useful and want to see it updated for iOS 5

mAdjetey said...

I wonder why you won't release the source code though

Please make a new version of this great program, I can't believe you are giving up on such an awesome project. :)

Fully agree, a shame to see a great app like this go away. Please consider an updated version, as im sure many more people will ask for it as people upgrade to iOS5/4S.

Someone posted a link to this on my forum, and I'm glad it was brought to my attention. We all appreciate your effort on creating this app and I hope you make an update, and as someone else stated earlier, I don't think people would mind paying a few bucks for it either. ;)

Please update para iOS5!
Many thanks!

Would love to pay for a USB Drive 2.0, also would beta test.

Just have to say, the same as the above. One of the best utilities for iPhones and would buy this if it worked on the latest iOS units

Is the author still alive? I /need/ an updated version for my 4S as the jailbreak will be coming soon.

It works quite good on iP 4 @ iOS 4.3.3, but slowly (transfers). Can't wait for 2.0 release, it'll be great.

I would also pay a nice chunk for ios 5 support. Thank you for the updated status on the project none the less.

Yes, my favorite part was the read only option, lots of programs on my memory stick would get deleted by antivirus very annoying until this

Dmytro PLEASE!!!! Update this app, i was running it on my iphone 4 with 4.3. firmware flawlessly. I made a mistake and update to 5.0 and now im stuck cuz i didnt save my .shsh blobs. I will donate if necessary dude but please update this awesome app to 5.0 even 5.0.1 tnx. YOU ROCK!

pd: I had a bootable partition with linux live cd working on it it was so sweet :)

Mike Crandall said...

FYI - I upgraded to 5.0.1 on my i4 and USB Drive 1.1 still works perfectly.

Anonymous said...

Update and charge, id pay $20 for the app

Dmytro, a usb drive on ios5 including 4S would be awesome. Read only option was the best.

I would pay for update as well you did a great job on a revolutionary project I thought sounded insane at first.

Parker said...

Works just fine here on iPod Touch 4g iOS 5.0. Can boot from it and everything.

Anonymous said...

I would absolutely PAY for this!!! Please consider an update.... Heck... If you just post an update saying you need DONATIONS to update it for 5.0.1 I'd bet you'd get enough to motivate you.... just post a link asking for a fan vote and see....

dmp said...

Thank you for the comments, I probably need to post short update for this topic. USB Drive actually works on 5.0.1, at least on my iPhone 3GS and I've got at least one positive response from this blog reader. Nothing should prevent from working on other devices too (iPad will not have fancy UI, but this will be fixed soon). BUT USB Drive wasn't tested on these devices (I just don't have them for now), which is absolutely a requirement for such kind of applications.

I installed this app on my 4s & it appears that I have lost the 25GB partition I attempted to create.
Can you give me any tips on how I might be able to get my 25GB's back?
Like all the above posts, I would be happy to pay money for a working version of this software.
My email is jp.gh08@gmail.com
Any advise would be really appreciated.

I'm sure people would be willing to pay for a new version to make it worth your time. Heck, id pay $25 if it saved me the cost of buying a memory stick and the convenience of it being always in my pocket.

Well a reboot has fixed almost all problems with this for me, try that and delete the partition then reboot again. Then try reinstalling the app. If all else fails do a restore before apple releases 5.1.

Anonymous said...

Update on above issue. I lost 25gb due to phone 5 minute locking. I suggest you stay by the phone & occasionally touch the screen while the drive is being prepared.
But I restored my phone as advised above (Thanks) & got my 25gb back.
I reinstalled the USB drive app & created a 20gb drive & stayed by the phone & occasionally touched the screen to keep it alive & presto! Perfect!

I can't guarantee this, but I also deleted the app before backing up prior to restore for the risk that it may remember that the USB app was 25gb's big.

Please advise where I can donate.

This app works flawlessly on my iPhone 4 16 GB on iOS 5.01

This is one of the most usefull apps I have come to for my iPhone.
I really hope you will continue your work on this app!!!

Using an iPhone 4S with iOS 5.1
Works perfectly! :)

This app also deserves my money and I would love to pay for it! ;)

volt said...

Same thing happened with my iphone 4. But I dont want to restore. How do I restore my 7gb back? I was creating the 7gb partition then suddenly the 5min locking. The partition created is not shown so I ant delete it, but certainly it has eaten up my 7gb space

Anonymous said...

Delicious tweak i hope it will never be outdated or i wouldnt update my ios Thanx allot for it hope it becomes opensource in future THE WORLD NEEDS IT !!!

Anonymous said...

As others of said, please take my money and consider releasing an updated version of this!!

At the very least, please release the source so such a great app isn't abandoned. It is a must have for some of us!

I've been using this on my 4s with iOS 5.0.1 with only one issue:

The only image that shows up to OS X or Windows is the top-listed one in the USB Drive app (the first one created).

To work around this I ssh'd into my iphone as root, then typed:

cd /var/Volumes
vim LunConfig.plist

There is a section for each image. I simply moved the entire section for the image I want to mount to be the first listed, then unplugged and re-plugged the phone back in.

I have found that my 4S on ios5.01 can't connect with Windows (7) on the drive only mode. I change to Drive Only, restart the phone. When it restarts it attempts to connect with the computer about every 3s and then disconnects and tries again. Has anybody heard or experienced this happening? Cheers.

It still works on my ipad 2 wifi on 5.1.1.

Still one of the best programs for the ipad/iphone!

Chris Cairns said...

where do i get this from i have cydia but cant find it? plz help

Anonymous said...

Have you figured out how to access the data stored in the drive from cli or ifile?

Parker said...

Add apt.dmytro.me to your sources.

Parker said...

At the time of writing this you cannot. Would require the device be able to mount the image file which it cannot.

Anonymous said...

Long time fan of this app and have been using it since its inception, but still haven't been able to figure out how to toggle between more than one volume. Please, is anyone out there able to shed light on this? I'm fairly certain it's possible since I've read a few posts that suggest they've used this feature.

Never mind, missed the solution post! Thanks Aaron.

Restore your phone via iTunes from DFU mode.

Anonymous said...

I don't know one thing all of you pepole are amazed by this app, ?
The app transfer rate is 1.7MB write and around 2.5MB read???!!!
Any of you pepole noticed this ?
And stop asking the developer to make version 2 because he can't do any better,
I think it's somthing apple don't want you to use,
They are so fucking greeds, even my nokia 5300 express music can transfer files through
USB connector, WTF ? I pay 1000$ to use my iFool like a USB 1 speed? By some hacker? FUCK YOU APPLE

This app still works for me even on the new xbox

Anonymous said...

no luck getting it to work on ios6 3gs... attempting to put in drive only mode will cause reboot (as expected) but after reboot goes into drive + itunes mode... perhaps there's an easy fix... For now tho looks like its finally the end for this awesome app... Props to Dmytro for creating such a useful thing! (i'll still hope for a v2.0 figures crossed)

Anonymous said...

so... when apple removed the device list from USBDeviceConfiguration.plist in ios 6, it removed to ability to change the productID to 30583... so drive only mode wont work... if anyone knows of another way to change the productID please leave a comment!

dmp said...

I wish they also fixed Windows driver to proper parse their composite USB device and let other device drivers (like USB Mass Storage) claim and serve their interfaces.

But removing USB Product ID from plist is a big step forward. This means Bluetooth subsytem no longer rely on USB driver to determinate Bluetooth feature set :)

It would be most excellent and proper if at least one person (or developer) commented on how to totally remove app if:
Its not working for you
You tried removing from cydia and
ITunes now does not recognize it
You can not charge via usb
even though you had in default mode before uninstalling from cydia - drive space or full funtionallity not returned
There must by a way to fully remove app and all its components??
