Want to add that supercool new HDR functionality to your older iPhone? Not to worry. If you’ve jailbroken (or need a reason to) your iPhone 3GS or 3G and have iOS 4.1, it is just a few string mods away. Here are the steps via the very helpful Will:

  • Make sure you have installed OpenSSH through Cydia. When it’s installed, SSH into your device (I recommend you also use the “passwd” command to change your password from the default “alpine”)
  • If you have an iPhone 3G, grab the file located at /System/Library/CoreServices/
  • If you have an iPhone 3GS, grab the file located at /System/Library/CoreServices/
  • Add a key named “hdr-image-capture” with a boolean value of “true” to the “capabilities” section of this property list
  • Save it, and use SSH to replace the copy on the device with your modified version
  • Restart SpringBoard, or just reboot your device. You should now have access to the HDR setting in the camera application.

    Rock Your iPhone and Saurik’s Cydia have just announced a merger that also merges their app stores for jailbroken devices. All application licesneses will be kept for both the Rock and Cydia app stores so you should be all good when the transition completes in a few days.

    Details of the acquisition have no been released, and this app store fusion will surely make jailbreaking even more convenient.

    It looks like iOS 4.0 has successfully been cloned to another device, an HTC one in this case, and everything from iOS seems to be there. As iSpazio points out, the porting of iOS to another company’s device seems like a long-shot, so this is most likely the best, most realistic iOS clone ever. As you’ll see in the video below, everything works including folders, quick-app switching, spotlight, and all the keyboards.

    You will also notice that the device’s performance is just like an iPhone 3G running iOS 4.0; complete junk. Anyways, this video is still pretty cool as it gives an idea of what iOS would look like another piece of hardware. Hint: Crap.
