PUSH Notification for Jailbreak Apps Coming SOON
Though the jailbroken iPhones does NOT need Push notification, it can still be pretty much useful (and fancy!) in some cases and maybe will even bring new kind of apps on Cydia soon.
KennyTM (the same guy who created GRiP, Growl for iPhone) has developed a small extension to MobileSubstrate - called FakePushNotification - that lets developers add push notification to their apps using some simple code. To install the extension, simply get it off the googlecode page and the files in following directories using SSH.
- Put the .dylib and the .plist to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries
- Put the executable (FakePushNotification) to /usr/bin and chmod a+x it.
FakePushNotification com.yourcompany.pushEnabledApp -
body = "Hello world!";
action-loc-key = "Welcome!";
NOTE: This is not the final release and may have certain bugs.

ya this has nothing to do with getting push notification to work for hacktivated phones, i wonder when the dev team will fix this if they are even attempting to; im sure they are. the title confused me lol

Created? Is Growl for iPhone only available in Cydia, is it on the AppStore already (and i can't find it) or is this app still not developed fully? Have been waiting for it.The Original Autobot of MMiJesus couldn't turn into a fire engine

i have been running grip for a while now but only give me email notes. The new one is off the hook but i yet have not upgraded. I really dont know how. they say you have to shh i deb file some where and when your done just reboot, But i seen it in cydia and i installed instead of shhing. it works ok but its a older version. i dont know how to upgrade. I dont know why someone wont just host this in there repo and do updates so this could be alot easyer for people and i bet alot more people will install it.

This may be a silly question, but you mean on Jailbroken apps, not Jailbroken phones, right?
Jailbreaking my phone doesn't break push from AppStore Apps does it?-DoocesWild

PS- I always restore and jailbreak with an AT&T sim in the phone. May be a solution to some problems or might just be a habit, but I also never have any problems that a lot of people talk about on here with unlocks and jailbreaks.

Got excited for a minute..
I thought the OP meant working Push Notifications for hacktivated phones. (Apparently so did a few others...)
However, so solve my problem, I ordered a at&t SIM from eBay. Should be here soon.

Puch isn't all that, it sucks, drains battery life sooooo bad, I get 6 hours max on my iPhone and I'm not even using an app that requires Push. I only have Beejive but even when I'm not using Beejive, battery life drains.

If you turn on Push for exchange then you will get the battery drain you are talking about. this is because Active sync is constantly running and "listening for updates".
The new push that is used for apps is more akin to the blackberry push in which most of the service is done on apple servers for listening and it's pushed to the device (without the device needing to constantly be checking for updates.)
Turn you push email off and leave the bjive notifications on. your battery life should improve.If i say something stupid I apologize. If i say something smart: "RESPECT MY AUTHORITAH".
And if i help you, please hit the Thanks!
