Well there was cycorder and videorecorder3g. Both worked on a 3g phone running 2.x
have you tried them?

Yeah, there's always been a video recorder for the iPhone 3G when you jailbroke your iPhone.
I don't know about a video editor though.

the creator of cycorder would have to edit it and somehow add a editor to the code. Its beyond me how to do it, but im sure there would be a way to access the "frames" of the recorded video and edit them...
Then what would be awesome is if, after this was done, you could email it directly from cycorder(and eventually mms it)

Actually it's closer then you think... On another site. the iSpazio team figured out that if you replace the M68AP.plist file on the 3G/2G with the same file from a 3GS iphone... you get the apple's video camera option like on the 3GS... well sort of. (if you decide to try this make a copy of your original M68AP.plist file to use to put back on your 2g/3g iphone after you try this or you will not be able to use your camera)
I tried it and it works... sort of. when you go to camera after doing this... you go to camera roll and at the top you have "photos/videos/all" and in the bottom right corner a still camera and video camera option. and when you watch the .mov file it has the video frame bar so you can edit the video.
the catch? the shutter on the camera stays closed. zo you can't take a pic or make a video. nor will 3rd party apps be able to take photos either.
another plus i went to my twittelator app and tapped the "video" button under the "new tweet" page. before i switched the files the app said "must have iphone 3GS to use video option." After replacing the file and then hitting "record video" the video camera pops up, but once again the shutter remains shut.
we are getting closer... soon very soon.
below are the steps to play with this. Not sure what the link posting rules are exactly on this forum. but if you pm me i'll send you in the right direction or give ya the files or something. REMEMBER to backup your iphones original .plist file or your camera won't work afterwards!
MUST HAVE A JAILBROKEN PHONE and openSSH... and of course fugu or the like.
here you go!
