  • My3G Updated, Supports FaceTime


    The guys at Intelliborn have just released My3G version 4.14, which now supports FaceTime over 3G. Or, as they put it: "Facetime over 3G!!!"

    This app, which convinces other apps that they're on WiFi instead of 3G, is a big one that will probably attract a lot of first time jailbreakers. Like 3G Unrestrictor, it works around iOS's 3G/EDGE restrictions, allowing you to download files bigger than 10MB, play full-res YouTubes and use apps like Sling Player and FaceTime. Can't wait to see how the video performs over 3G and how long it takes to crash AT&T's network.

    It's available on Rock now and it should be up on our repo shortly, we're getting hit pretty hard today. Be sure to let us know how it works in comments.

    - In-App popup request to enable/never ask for My3G to be enabled for that app
    - In-App indicator when My3G changes the network from 3G to WiFi
    - Ability to select which apps are My3G enabled and not.
    - Default Apps no configuration for the most popular apps!
    - SBSettings Toggle! You can temporarily enable My3G for all apps or toggle back using your defined Apps list
    - Dynamic enablement Higher successs rate (near 100%) then 3G Unrestrictor (which does one off solutions for apps). My3G enables 3G indicators more dynamically.

    4.1 Updates
    =============
    - Facetime over 3G!!!

      used it just earlier...its AWESOME to use it on 3G, but the downfall of it is, it lags alot...my friend said his screen freezes alot as it goes to mine too. i hope there's a fix for it cuz i would totally ENJOY using facetime through 3G

      3gUnrestrictor does indeed work w/Facetime. You need to add your "Phone" app and then after adding click on the blue ">" to enable the bypass option.

      It works. I just used it.

      I've had My3G since 3.1.2. Using it that it makes AT&T's servers crash? No... Had absolutely no problems. BUT Now that it supports FaceTime... FaceTime on a 3G network will have the potential of doing just that... Is this why my iPhone 3G randomly switches to EDGE all of a sudden when in the same spot? Lolz. AT&Ts servers are going to get pounded.

      As for those of you receiving errors installing/using My3G... I'm not sure what your problem is... I've installed it on my iPhone 3G and it installed and is working flawlessly. Do remember that old RedSn0w versions disables APN and create network issues at times. Re-Jailbreak using RedSn0w 0.9.5 B5-5 as this is the newest version. For those jailbroken with JailbreakMe.com , lots of issues have been reported... So this isn't something you can easily fix... All I'm saying is some My3G errors are due to the way your iDevice was jailbroken

      But it won't take long to fill 200mb that is for sure.
      I saw 14.7mb for a 5 minute call.

      open cydia and install essential updates.

      BTW, I see a lot of people asking about facetime and the At&t data plan... i kept my unlimited data plan. why change? unless you're a newbie...

      It sounds like you need to turn facetime on in your settings. I think you'll find it in settings under phone.

      when installing My3G from cydia does that automatically install Rock? I hate rock

      Since you "hate rock" for whatever reason, then don't download his apps. I really don't understand the negativity toward Rock, since all Mario has done is help the jailbreaking community.

      Rock-haters, in my mind, are similar to Geohot apologists -- shades of 'leave Britney alone'. Part of their reasoning is that it makes jailbreaking 'too easy' and 'too convenient' so that the unwashed tech-masses can do it too. This takes away the sheen of 'leetness' that they used to have when rubbing their jailbroke devices all over themselves.

      At least Geohot apologized.

      I do not look back on the 'early days' of jailbreaking with fondness -- what a hassle --- any more than I do of the early days without antibiotics or indoor plumbing ('real men pooped in the woods, fighting off bears!')

      Great thanks to Geohot, Comex, Saurik, Mario, et al who've been helping unyoke us from Apple-signing-jail and giving us access to other sources of apps. And if they make a few bucks for their effort, good for them.

      Agreed. And, I already know what the "reasons" some people will give - Rock addiing certain code, and also Rock charging for apps. Well, that is no different than what Saurik does in Cydia. And, I am not putting down Jay at all. We ALL owe TONS to his innovation.

      And, last time I noticed, it seems like MMI is completely supporting both Mario and Saurik.

      I don't get it either. I see people complaining all the time but I've never had a problem. The complaints seem to be the 3rd grade version of "Rock sucks while Cydia's cool." I think they are both cool.

      Yeah. That's a bucket of crazy. People that are stupid don't use real logic.

      I do not like the way rock came into the scene. They leeched the program onto other programs (like a yahoo toolbar would) so that you had No choice but to install it.
      I find that sneaky and rude.

      Me hating rock doesn't mean you need to hate rock but you didn't think that did you? You take a simple statement as an affront.

      and quidam_brujah may be spending too much time in the comments sections because that's not at all a good analogy (at least for my reasons).

      My friend had My3g installed and it didn't look right, over wifi that is. Both people were over wifi on the same network and the picture didn't look as good as it did without my3g, uninstalled my3g and it looked normal again.
      Anyone else see that?
