iFacePad: Enable FaceTime on Your iPad
Earlier this month Paul had covered a story about a hacker who manually enabled FaceTime on the iPad
. The process required some manual installation which wasn't quite easy for the inexperienced. However, a developer by the name of Intell has created an app that does the work for you. iFacePad is an Mac OS X app which will allow you to enable FaceTime on your iPad just like the iPod Touch 4G. The app can be downloaded here
You will be required to have the iPod Touch 4G IPSW Firmware on hand, (download here
), and preferably access to a Mac (iFacePad is a Mac OS X App).
For this particular setup, you will also need to download PhoneDisk here
Ensure that you have installed OpenSSH and AFC2 from Cydia before getting started. If you used greenpois0n to jailbreak, AFC2 should already be installed.
Launch PhoneDisk and connect to your iPad. Remember to make sure root is enabled and you are in the root directory. At this point, launch the iFacePad.app file. After launching the app a dialog box will appear saying "All Done" and request that you reboot the iPad.
From here you should now have a FaceTime app on your springboard, just like the iPod Touch 4G.
Hopefully we will see an app available on Cydia shortly that does the same thing, without the need to use a Mac/PC.
