How to get DemoApp to work (TUAW.com)
Here is a link to the original story here
short of it is
movie must be called demo.mov (unconfirmed but working in ONLY h.264)
movie goes into /private/var/root
it will play in a constant loop
usefulness? none really, just nice to see it working

Ah, nice. SO it ISN'T for video output. Well, not exactly.

this is fantastic news! Now I could get my dream...ive been trying to figure out a way to play a visualizer on my phone...I have an auxilery adapter from my car stereo to the iPhone headphone jack, and im getting a generic cell phone dock to charge while driving. I think it would be badass to leave a visualizer running while im driving and this seems to be the way to do it. Does anyone know of a good video to put in that folder?

Actually this is quite frankly utterly useless, all this is, is the demo app that is embedded in the video ipod to demo it out. Just so everyone knows, once run with the hack all it does is play the demo.mov over and over, you cannot alter the settings nor access parts of your phone with it running. In the future this might be useful but for now it isn't

But if you're using iphoneinterface why couldnt you remove that demo.mov file and then putfile another movie of equal or lesser megabytes named "demo.mov" from your hacking folder?

you can, but i mean when you turn on your phone the iPhone automatically opens your movie and begins playing it on a loop thats it, it is for demo purposes, so that mean no access to any other programs while this is running

im no programer/hacker by any means, but would it be possible to inject code into a demo.mov and have it run? since it autoruns it and plays etc. just a wild thought, its probably not possible

No it wouldn't. Course there's other ways...
