TruPrint Expands Jailbroken iDevice Printing Capabilities
The intelligent people at Intelliborn are picking up Apple's slack and making it easier than ever to print to most network printers directly from your iDevice. Thanks to TruPrint, available now for download/install through Cydia, the $9.99 app enables your jailbroken device to work around the grossly limited iOS printing functionality, which largely excludes from printing just about everyone without one of only eight select printers.
Yet another great example of how creative devs and jailbroken devices can make for extraordinary outcomes that yield useful services that Apple itself failed to deliver, TruPrint works like a charm and delivers the expansive printing functionality that, to be honest, Apple should have made possible long ago. Nonetheless, TruPrint eliminates the frustration we've encountered in this regard, bringing hundreds of previously excommunicated printers into the iDevice printing fold.
Supported iDevices are as follows:
iPhone 3G/3GS/iPhone 4 iPod Touch 1G, 2G, 3G
iOS versions: 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.1, 4.2.1 (partial)
iPad WiFi and WiFi + 3G
iOS versions: 3.2, 3.2.1, 3.2.2, 4.2.1 (partial)

so this is exactly how it used to be then? cause when i had the gm beta that introduced printing it still worked on all shared printers. then on the final release they locked it all up. made me so mad when i updated and LOST a function.

Finally I have been searching Cydia for some time now trying to find a fix for this... Nicely done.

It is finding the Brother printer that I have, but whatever data the truprint app seems to be sending to the printer, the pages are not getting printed. The printer display shows receiving data... but nothing happens. I am using a 3GS on 4.2.1

This app worked for me on first try with hp photosmart plus, love it

Didn't Apple say the printing on all devices would be coming sometime first half of 2011.. so maybe in like 3 days. Plus there is a free Mac app that already allows printing to other printers. $10 is too crazy for me to spend on this service just yet

Great app, worked first time on IPhone 4 running 4.2.1! Airprint wouldnt even find my printer!

Amazing. I just tried this on my iphone 4. It works perfectly. I had no problems whatsoever. This is huge psuskeels...The Firmware Umbrella -
Save your device shsh blobs locally and use them to restore your device regardless of what apple signs.
IE. This is what saurik does, only completely on your machine.

TruPrint can find my office networked printer but it won't print to it. The printer requires a job log when printing from macs or pcs. I think this could be the issue. Anyone know of a way around it?

Found all my printers. Printing emails is fine. Printing Word documents not so much. Formatting for Word docs is wanky.
