    In cydia there is a download that makes it vibrate longer, or 3 times.. as for making it stronger im not sure.

    I believe the only changes that can be made are for the duration and sequence. Its an electic motor, which basically means it will spin dependent on the amount of power its receiving.

    lol, idk im about to try that but i cant even feel it in my pocket when it vibrates, its a very faint vibrate and instead of going back to apple id rather fix it myself if i can

    :Update: I found something called SystemSoundMaximumVibrateIntensity.plist and one of the values was .299999 so i made it one and hopefully it works

    :Update: Nope, still weak, its probably the motor like cpjr said, ill head over to apple tomorrow

    Im not saying they would even consider it "broke"...my 3g (in my opinion) is fairly weak also...my 2g phones seem stronger, but not great compared to other phones.

    But hey, its worth a shot if you wanna take it in.
