Your favorite Apple, iPhone, iPad, iOS, Jailbreak, and Cydia site.

Hi guys, thanks so much for this. I saw a link on Gizmodo to this site, this is my first post here.
One minor glitch was that, for me, after this hack safari would just crash each time I tried to open it. After a few more searches I came across this advice:
Safari Not Working – Cydia Icon Missing after RedSn0w Jailbreak | Iphone 3GS Problems
Which suggested the solution of using the modified redsn0w app to reboot the device. So, I reconnected the iPad to the mac, started iTunes, turned off the iPad, started redsn0w, selected extras>reboot, followed the instructions to go into DFU mode and then the device rebooted. Safari now works again, my iPad seems all fine and multitouch gestures work.
The same thing happened on both iPad 1s that I ran this on.
A big thanks to the community for working this out.

First post for me as well. I want to add to the list of those with no airplay mirroring video, just audio. I get the Apple TV to appear in Airplay but no option for mirroring.

d.B., You are amazing! This is exactly what I needed on my iPad 1! The gestures became such a big part of how I used the iPad and it was disappointing that Apple took it out. I also use TV out a lot and the mirroring works great! I use the VGA connector and I just finished playing a round of Real Racing 2 HD on my TV just before posting this. Thanks again and keep up the excellent work!

- Working perflectly with HDMI cable
- Nothing wirelessly.
As i read the first post again, it doesn't seem to be advertised as working with wifi.

Hi, just an update, despite this not being a full jailbreak my iPad 1 will not open iBooks after this modification. This is apparently a known issue but there does not seem to be a fix. So, be aware that you will not be able to access iBooks at all if you make this modification.

I ran through this on my iPad 1 (iOS 5) and I have mirroring, gestures and iBooks works fine.
I used the windows version of redsn0w.

Still trying to figure out iBooks but has anyone gotten wireless mirroring functioning or is it confirmed to be enabled by cable only with this mod?
10-22-2011, 06:57 PM #53
Pretty sure it's wired only.

I'm glad I didn't give up on it and go back to the standard firmware.
I am going to be investing in the HDMI cable now. Thanks, d.B., for this awesome mod!

I've got 2 iPad1 devices (my wife and I) both are 64Gb wifi/3G. Neither have ever been jailbroken before, however, they were both set to developer mode prior to iOS5.
I ran the mod yesterday exactly as described on Gizmodo, i.e. I just selected install multi-touch gestures, NOT install cydia. After the install the multitouch gestures worked but Safari crashed on opening each time. I did not check iBooks at that time. Following advice on another site I re-ran redsn0w and selected extras>just reboot. After this, Safari worked but ibooks does not. This was exactly the same on both iPads.
Today, I re-ran the mod on my iPad. As before, after running it Safari just crashes. This time, I checked iBooks and at this point it did work. I then re-ran the mod and selected extras>just reboot again. Now Safari works but iBooks does not. Perhaps it is the reboot that is messing with iBooks? If so, what else should I do to get Safari working? I obviously care a lot more about Safari than iBooks.
All help appreciated!

Thanks, thanks, and thrice thanks! Transformed my device from having the multitasking gesture then having them whisked away like some abhorant child! Superb stuff. I broke my fretting hymen with this mod,mand it is very much appreciated, d.B.
A thousand thanks!

10-25-2011, 11:03 PM #59Mirroring Works With VGA Adapter
Thanks for this mod. Hardest part is getting into DFU mode. Timing is everything. I had to run the sequence faster than the redsn0w prompts said: press power button (6 sec), then also press home button (4 sec), then release power button while still holding home, then release home as soon as redsn0w mod successfully starts running. If you get a fail, the sequence or timing was probably off. Just try to do it again. When it works, just let it run and reboot.
For me, gestures works immediately and are great. Mirroring doesn't work wirelessly or with component video adapter, but it does work great with VGA adapter. It's awesome for apps that don't support Airplay, and for training people to use iPads! This is just what I needed. Thanks again!!!
Apple should definitely open these features up to iPad 1 users, the early adopters who helped make the product a success. People will still buy upgrade models for their hardware features.

I've just registered at modmyi not only to thank you (a lot!), but also to let you know that the guy responsible of
iPad Gestures and Airplay by ~alvincapalad on deviantART
not only presents your mod without giving you the proper credit: he also names the zip file after himself...!
