Russian Developer Gets 3D Maps Working on iPhone 4
As usual Appleís claim that a certain feature will only work with new device (x) but not old device (y) turns out to be a bunch of proprietary hogwash. A Russian developer found a way to get 3D maps running on an iPhone 4, a feature Apple claimed would only work on the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and the new iPad.
The work around by Anton Titkov dubbed 3Denabler allows iOS 6 beta users with the iPhone 4 to run 3D maps, but still lacks turn-by-turn functionality. The workaround isnít through Cydia because, well, an iOS 6 jailbreak doesnít really exist at this point. Getting 3Denabler running isnít as straightforward as a tradition jailbreak, and the instructions (found here) are in Russian. So proceed with caution, especially if you donít know Russian and rely on Chromeís translate feature....
Still the functionality of Tiktovís Maps work around appears quite good considering the beta-nature of iOS 67 at this point. However, those excited at the prospect of a maps workaround upon iOS 6ís release should temper expectations as Apple will likely block workaround in future beta releases.

It's not that it doesn't work it's that it probably doesn't meet the benchmarks eating up so much memory plus if they make every device backward compatible there's no reason. Didn't you notice every time they come out with something new it's "the best "x" we've ever made ?

Is there a cydia tweak that will allow me to watch the YouTube links that are posted on this site from my phone

Exactly. They want everyone to go with the flow. If it worked on the iPad1. Would people ever buy an iPad 2 or 3? No cause there happy but if you make certain things for certain devices. They want everyone to upgrade with technology.

Same thing with age. If someone shows you a picture of yourself, it's always going to be a picture of yourself when you were younger. You can't take a picture of someone when they're older and show it to them.

If you already know how to do that, grab this:
Nothing much on there explaining what it does or how it works,
but it's a MobibleSubstrate extension unfortunately not just a plist edit :/
iT0ny found a similar toggle for Turn-by-Turn navigation, that he says "should work" on iP4,
but doesn't seem to do anything.

The iOS 6 jailbreak now includes afc2add. Getting the MobileSubstrate .deb isn't hard to find. So, just manually install both .debs at the same time

Учитывая тот факт, что Cydia пока не работает на iOS 6 и не устанавливается после джейлбрейка iOS 6 для разработчиков, мы приготовили две инструкции по установке твика без использования Cydia. Первым делом вам нужно скачать Deb файл ( ссылка ):
(instead of taking "Первым делом вам нужно" literally).

I'd rather have the turn-by-turn tweaked on rather than the 3D flyover stuff.Member of the hackint0sh forums.

Apple software is starting to become a joke. What's next? Limiting software for MacBooks? Many things have possible because of the jailbreak community. FaceTime over 3G has been out for years. Apple just releasing it to ios6 and only 4S? No turn by turn for maps on iPhone 4? There's turn by turn for third party apps that run perfect but apple rather keep it from the users. Siri even works perfect on the iPhone 4. If it wasnt for the jailbreak community I would have left my iPhone a long time ago

In a sense I wouldn't scratch the whole maps idea just because my old devices can't use them but my good ones can

The first ports of Siri where not great but as more people found ways to make it work now you see it work just like the iPhone 4s!

The way I've always looked at it is that it doesn't matter what a phone does stock, its what it does with a little bit of know-how. That being said, iPhone wins hands down.

Got this to work on my iPod Touch 4th Gen!
