  • GameCenter & HDR Enabler for iPhone 3G(S) iOS 4.1


    Developer Macusercom, has created a tweak for the iPhone 3G and 3GS on iOS 4.1 which will enable some options that have been both removed and limited in the latest iOS 4.1 update. If your an iPhone 3G user, and have upgraded to iOS 4.1 you may have noticed that GameCenter is not available. The iPhone 3GS does however have GameCenter, but Apple failed to include the HDR capabilities it has given the iPhone 4, in iOS 4.1.

    With this tweak you will be able to enable GameCenter on the iPhone 3G, as well as enable HDR Photography for both the iPhone 3G and 3GS. You MUST be on iOS 4.1 for this to work, so if your not already on this firmware, do not lose your jailbreak just to update. The Greenpois0n release is right around the corner, just be patient.

    Some of you may be asking "Wait, what? iOS 4.1 is required? How is that possible if we don't have a jailbreak?". While indeed, there is no official release for the newer models, the iPhone 3G and 3GS have been jailbroken via redsn0w by the Dev Team and Sn0wbreeze, released by iH8sn0w. There are quite a few requirements, so don't get your hopes up too much. However, if your confident in your geek skills, you can read more here.

    Tweaks like these always make me laugh, and wonder why Apple does silly things like this to us. Just state the conditions and let the users CHOOSE to have GameCenter or not. That's my thought at least.

    Search HDR/GameCenter Enabler in Cydia. You can find it on the ModMyi repo.

      Not true. iPhone 3G was never meant to have multitasking but the ui is still built into all firmwares! Just like the homescreen wallpaper options in the settings app.... And just took pics with it on and off in winterboard. Doesn't do ****!

      With only a 2 Megapixel camera in the iPhone 3G and 3 Megapixel in 3GS, is HDR really going to add anything???

      Also, you forgot to mention redsn0w can jailbreak iPhone 3G on 4.1 as I did this a few days ago since I have no need for ultrasn0w.

      Guys I too am having this issue, I've got an iPhone 3GS jailbroken on iOS 4.1 with sn0wbreeze. Is sn0wbreeze the common thread here or is anyone else experiencing this issue with a different JB tool?

      AWESOME! I've been trying to get Game Center to work on my 3G via the "Info.plist" all week! This is good to hear that someone has found this out and it works! Now, just waiting on that Greenpois0n!

      I have the TrueHDR app from the App Store for my iPod with a .7 MP and it works pretty well. So yeah, definitely.

      I'm not sure if you understand what HDR is. Of COURSE it will add something. It will combine different aperture settings into one image. That's just F'n awesome.

      Now lets hope this comes to the iPod 4!

      Now I'd like to know why Apple never included HDR Photos for the iPod Touch 4G. As soon as that is jailbroken I would like to see this same tweak fix that.

      Just a caution to all you 3G users. Both redsn0w and sn0wbreeze have had numerous problems with jailbreaking the 3G. I've tried both and decided to stay with 3.1.3 until something more stable is released by the dev team.

Then the end user could load it onto the device over ssh and install the deb. That sound possible to anyone?
      HDR is not as simple as the game center is. The HDR framework makes references to different core frameworks and system attributes new in 4.1 so it would be impractical to bring those frameworks to 4.0 .
      I spent a total of 10 minutes on 4.1 before I downgraded so I cannot say for sure if the new features are backwards compatible. Game center seems to work for 4.0 though I am skeptical.

      I have jailbroken 5 iphones with sn0wbreeze and I have no problems I find it stable.

      Lets hope greenp0sion can get games centre working

      Ok so I guess I am having the same problems here. iPhone 3G 4.1 jailbroke with redsnow and have multitasking and wallpaper on. Used modmyi hdr/gamecenter tweak and no luck. It takes away multitasking and wallpaper and no gamecenter. How do they release this without it even working??? Thanks but it does not work. Please try your product before release.

      Thanks for the tip, I have just enabled the HDR in the photo apps on my 3GS.

      Just so i'm clear NO ONE has been able to get the HDR working on a 3GS?

      Hmm, I wonder what it is then, because obviously it works for SOME people.

      How to enable HDR manually.

      You must have OS 4.1 and jailbroken in order to gain access to your root system.
      You have to ssh into your Iphone go to this directory, you can use WinScp to edit and do the transfer.

      iPhone 3G: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N82AP.plist

      iPhone 3GS: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N88AP.plist

      In the Capabilities section of this property list file, add a key named ‘hdr-image-capture’ with a boolean value of ‘true’.
      Your key should look like this :

      hdr-image-capture

      Save it and copy back to the folder and overides the old.
      Reboot your iphone
      Go to the Photo in Setting and turn the normal to OFF.
      You are all set.
