How to get iPhone 3GS Features on 3G and 2G [Video Editing]

So you couldn’t buy iPhone 3G S due to x number of reasons. Don’t worry here is a tutorial that will enable the new camera roll and video editing capabilities from iPhone 3GS on your iPhone 3G and iPhone 2G.

Additionally, you will also be able to upload videos you took from Cycorder app to YouTube directly from Camera Roll app just like in iPhone 3GS.

Update: How to Enable Voice Control on iPhone 2G 3G

Pre-Requisites – Your iPhone should be jailbroken and have OpenSSH from Cydia installed. Download these if already you don’t have them –

Download WinSCP for Windows
Download Cyberduck for Mac OS X
Download VideoToggle (optional)

Step 1: Goto Cydia and install the following apps (in case you don’t have them already):

  • Cycorder (the Video recording App)
  • SBSettings
  • MobileTerminal

and Reboot.

Step 2: Now connect your iPhone with your computer. close iTunes, if running.

Note: There are two methods beyond this point. Method 2 is harder, but more Reliable

Method 1. (Easy) Add this source to Cydia: http://cy.sosiphone.com

Open Cydia and search for “VideoEdit” and Install it.

Skip Steps 3,4,5,6 and jump directly to Step 7.

Method 2. Download VideoToggle (above) and continue with Step 3

Step 3: Open WinSCP on Windows or Cyberduck on Mac and enter the following details to login to your phone:

  • Hostname: The IP of iPhone.
  • User name: root, Password: alpine
  • Protocol: SCP (default)

Step 4: Browse to /private/var/tmp directory on your iPhone.

Step 5: Extract VideoToggle.zip into a folder and then Copy it to /private/var/tmp directory on your iPhone

Step 6: Now open MobileTerminal (aka Terminal) on your iPhone and run the following commands:

Enable iPhone 3GS Video Editing  in iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G

    > su root
    alpine
    > bash /private/var/tmp/VideoToggle/install

Step 7: Open SBSettings (by swiping on the status bar on the top) and enable VideoEdit as shown in screenshot on right.

You are done! Now go to your Camera Roll in Photos app and you should now have iPhone 3GS Camera Roll, Video Editing and Video Uploading options in your iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G !!

Open Photos App, you will Notice the Videos option being added.

Enable iPhone 3GS Video  Editing in iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G

We can now play videos recorded from Cycorder app in Photos app on our iPhone 3G and iPhone 2G.

Also, you get Ability to trim videos on iPhone 3G and iPhone 2G.

Enable iPhone 3GS Video  Editing in iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G

You ca either “Email Video” or “Send to YouTube”.

IMPORTANT: VideoToggle is still in beta and has some bugs. When it is enabled, Camera app will NOT work properly. You will have to disable the VideoEdit toggle from SBSettings to make the Camera app work again. Enable VideoEdit toggle only when you want to enable the video editing options etc. I will keep you guys updated on any future updates which this app will get. Subscribe to our RSS

    I am kind of new this hackery. Nice post, I hope I can figure this out.

    First we download:
    -download WinSCP for Windows
    -download Cyberduck for Mac OS X (but not if we use XP right?)
    -download VideoToggle (optional)

    When you say “Add this source to Cydia: http://cy.sosiphone.com

    How do you do that? Can you explain that more literally?

    Thanks!

  • cyberduck is only for Mac not windows xp, so ignore it.
    is your iphone jailbroken ? If not follow that guide.
    If yes, Open Cydia > Manage > sources >edit >add.

    Hope that helps

    Would be so cool if you could make a how to video and upload it. In Cydia this file SBSettings is not there, there are a few possibilities with the same sort of name. I am confused!
