    Default GameCenter & HDR Enabler for iPhone 3G(S) iOS 4.1


    Developer Macusercom, has created a tweak for the iPhone 3G and 3GS on iOS 4.1 which will enable some options that have been both removed and limited in the latest iOS 4.1 update. If your an iPhone 3G user, and have upgraded to iOS 4.1 you may have noticed that GameCenter is not available. The iPhone 3GS does however have GameCenter, but Apple failed to include the HDR capabilities it has given the iPhone 4, in iOS 4.1.

    With this tweak you will be able to enable GameCenter on the iPhone 3G, as well as enable HDR Photography for both the iPhone 3G and 3GS. You MUST be on iOS 4.1 for this to work, so if your not already on this firmware, do not lose your jailbreak just to update. The Greenpois0n release is right around the corner, just be patient.

    Some of you may be asking "Wait, what? iOS 4.1 is required? How is that possible if we don't have a jailbreak?". While indeed, there is no official release for the newer models, the iPhone 3G and 3GS have been jailbroken via redsn0w by the Dev Team and Sn0wbreeze, released by iH8sn0w. There are quite a few requirements, so don't get your hopes up too much. However, if your confident in your geek skills, you can read more here.

    Tweaks like these always make me laugh, and wonder why Apple does silly things like this to us. Just state the conditions and let the users CHOOSE to have GameCenter or not. That's my thought at least.

    Search HDR/GameCenter Enabler in Cydia. You can find it on the ModMyi repo.

    Default HDR doesn't work
    How do you turn on HDR in the Camera app? I see the Settings->Photos list HDR options on my 3G[S] running iOS 4.1 (msft_guy's bundle + PwnageTool), but I don't see any button in the Camera app to turn on HDR...

    Anyone get this to work?

    Try to make a respring. It should work.

    EDIT: Some apps don't work. SBRotator etc. are broken. iOS 4.1 isn't a small update like iOS 4.0.1 and iOS 4.0.2 but not so big as the switch from iOS 3.1.3 to iOS 4. If you go into SafeMode it's broken.

    I respringed, it had no effect. Also, given I have a 3G[S] that already has GameCenter, do I use the HDR+Game Center enabler, or just the HDR enabler? Is the correct behavior that I should see an "HDR On/Off" button in the image in the camera app? If so, that is not working...

    Can anyone post a screenshot with it working?

    I know I don't know why Apple did that. If apple would delete this parts the firmware would have a size of -30-50 MB and 3G and 3Gs users wouldn't have to jailbreak their iPhones for this (or it wouldn't be possible).

    Wish someone could figure out a way to extract HDR photography from 4.1 and get it working on already jailbroken i4's running 4.0.1... I assume since the code is copywritten we won't be seeing it on cydia anytime soon but theoretically if it's not too tied to the fundamentals of the OS you would think one could make a script to extract it from the official ipsw and package it into a deb. Then the end user could load it onto the device over ssh and install the deb. That sound possible to anyone?

    Takes away multitasking and homescreen wallpaper (guessing it replaces the springboard preferences) and then it doesnt even give me anything! No app for gamecenter and no HDR! I get HDR in settings but no button in camera...? THIS DOESN'T WORK!

    Yep. Nothing works for me, so I'm removing it and Winterboard. If anyone gets it working, let me know. If nothing else, I hate Winterboard, so I'm mildly consoled by the fact that if it did work, I'd have to leave Winterboard on! oh well...

    If you are convinced it's better, that's great, but it is definitely not on. Sound like a placebo-effect to me. The settings checkbox is supposed to keep the original and HDR in the camera roll: only one photo appears for each shot I take, so that must be the normal one, no HDR. I took a picture in my dim living-room toward the outside sky. It showed no more dynamic range than before. Definitely a non-feature, and thus a shame that MMI didn't check their homework before making this post.

    I do not see an HDR option after rebooting in Photos. Also, Game Center runs but is not showing installed Game Center games under Games This on on a 3G
