  • 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

      I think it WILL take a long time for this to screw up att's network. That's exactly why they capped their data plans before iPhone 4. It was inevitable that video calling would happen, jailbreak or not.

      Just like how they say, San Francisco does not have a parking problem, if you can afford it.
      AT&T won't have a network problem, because they've capped the data plans for the large influx of new iPhone 4 customers.

      And btw, who the hell came up with the name FaceTime? Was it you Steve?
      A play on QuickTime? Maybe, but it sounds way too much like something stupid that Borat would say. Going to make sexy time on your facetime.

      Search for RockApp in Cydia. You probably won't be able to download it now though as the servers are taking a beating.

      Nice, but WTF is up with the repo...? I feel like ModMyi has really been dropping the ball lately...I've attempted to access this and others with no success and its really frustrating?!?! Just curious whats going on...? New admins, lack of funds, no organization? This used to be one of the favorite and most reliable repo's available? Hope they can somehow get their "mojo" back!

      I thought FaceTime didn't work on the new jailbreak? Also, wasn't the app limit raised to 20MB for OTA DLs?

      I wonder how many people are going to go over on their data with this. With the new plans being capped and thinking about how much data is being transferred during a video chat, I'm sure there will be a few people that run into this problem. Anyone know how much data/min is being used average with FaceTime?

      Facetime shouldn't use any minutes over 3G, but it'll eat your data.
      FaceTime Bandwidth Usage on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
      This is a good reference for how much data it'll probably use, not too bad actually.

      1.) it's been working since an update was made to the jailbreak last night.

      1b.) anyone who jailbroke before the update only needed to do a Backup Restore to their most recent backup from before they jailbroke and it would be fixed.

      1c.) there is a repo that can be added to Cydia containing a fix for the issue.

      1d.) an end-user who knows how to use SSH simply needed to SSH into their phone and set 3 specific directories to 777 (CHMOD).

      all well for all features with the jailbreak. one way or another.

      yeah this WOULD be freakin awesome if you could simply "slide to jailbreak" and you dont get messages like these "oops....it looks like the installer crashed try again" or "oops file received was truncated" epic fail on this
