Manual Installation

You can install manually an application on iphone 2.x if you have an ad-hoc distribution. This kind of distribution are used for beta-test, evaluation...

To install Siphon on iphone, you need to follow the steps :

  • uncompress
  • drag and drop directory and .mobileprovision file in Library of iTunes (left column of iTunes).
    • in Applications item you should be look Siphon.
  • select your device (devices in left column)
  • select Applications tab
  • check Synchronize Applications
  • select application to install: Siphon
  • Synchronize

UDID of iPhone or iPod Touch

If you want to used an Ad-Hoc distribution developers need the device ID of your iPhone or iPod Touch. This ID allows to sign application for your device.

There are several ways to get this information. The simplest is iTunes. iTunes displays the Identifier if you click on "Serial Number" (summary tab) after selecting the device in the source list.

Pressing Cmd+C (mac) or Ctrl+C (win) will copy the 40 characters hex string to the clipboard.

You just need to paste to get the device ID.

Thanks for the information. Some problems though. I don't see a file for the 2.x version on the google code site.

What I really want to do is, take the source for Siphon 2.x and compile it with the 2.1 iPhone SDK in order to distribute it via ad-hoc distribution under my Standard Developer license. Is this possible?

I have done the svn checkout of the source and attempted to compile with xCode with no luck. I was able to get the simulator to start but then I get an error 'unhandled exception'.

Any help would be appreciated. I'm very interested in this app and an experience programmer that could help with the Beta Testing.

For the moment, I don't upload the code of siphon for iphone 2.x. But there are several beta testers.

If you are a company, you can contact me to buy the software.

Are you releasing any beta versions to the public through this site? The iphone community needs a straight up sip phone :)

Comment by project member, Oct 8, 2008

The beta version just exists by Ad-hoc distribution. Because iPhone OS wants signed app.

What happened to the settings: "Daemon mode" and "Siphon over EDGE" in the Account settings? It would be a pitty to see these gone. Hope you are not changing passion for money and only offer Siphon through the AppStore?, but through Cydia instead.
