    So I have gone through a couple files, editing and such and I turned off and turned back on my iphone, a couple seconds later the loading screen that normally appears when you restore your iphone loaded up and then the iphone fully booted, but now my iphone is going really slow and I can't even get past the slide to unlock, it sounds weird, but I think I am on to something!

    Ok, I got passed the slide to unlock but as soon as I get in there, it goes back to the slide to unlock again!

    Ok, I got it to where it could see the home screen but now it goes back to the slide to unlock

    the file that needs changing i think is restrictions.plist in the preferences.app because as soon as I add it to the 3g, it changes back to the 3g's original file and it doesn't stay the 3gs files! This file also contains video recording information, hint hint, apple did this on purpose if you know what I mean

    I don't see why they think the 3G can't record videos. It's got a decent 2mp camera. I know they want to sell more 3GSs but video is a basic feature the worst dumb/cameraphone can do. They would sell more of the 3G this way. Also they can enable the feature and charge us for it like an iPod touch firmware upgrade. I would definitely buy it and so would several others I know.
    Anyways to enabling the native functionality... I think you're on to something ryanandkevin cause that would mean it thinks it needs more power to operate the functionality but it is underwhelmed by 288MHz and 128Mb RAM not much of a difference but then again I'm not an iPhone... but anyways yeah try some other things. But it will take everyone to get it done. Let's work together to get this working! We are so close!!

    try renaming N88 to M68. i would but i dont have the decrypted firmware for the 3gs
    It wont work if you rename N88 to M68 because AVCapture.plist in the N88 has the framerate, still camera resolution, video camera resolution & many more things of the 3GS. It wont work till we edit it to work on the 2G/3G.

    It also has a key 'VideoMaxPixelsPerFrame'. The value for the 3GS is 76800. I dont know what it is for the 2G/3G.

    There is also a software on windows called Transmac for viewing HFS/HFS+/HFSX volumes intended for viewing the iMac filesystem.
    What I realised is that it can also open iphone/ipod firmware files. You have to open a pwned ipsw file with wirar & extract the largest dmg (the one that contains the main files). Once it is extracted, it can be opened with TransMac. Unfortunately TransMac is not free . It comes with a 15 day free trial. I extraced the 3GS files to my PC before the trial expired

    Good Luck Guys !!!!

    ryanandkevin if its runny that slow try installing sbsettings to see how much ram you have left etc as your iphone maybe successfully running 3gs binaries and processes etc. and that would slow it down. perhaps removing items like voice control, accessibility from the restriction plists may speed it up again but i am not sure. Sounds like we are getting very close to getting it

    Also yesterday i tried to get nike + ipod working on the 3g and spent a few hours on it hoping we could use a similar method to unlock video recording, i was unsuccessful as it never showed up on the pages of apps. BUT today i found these things from below,- it registered as an app on sbsettings when it enumbercated to hide apps. and nike + ipod showed up in the settings settings but it was empty (screen clips below). :-



    ^In setiings



    ^nothing displayed when opened



    ^shows up in sbsettings when you go to hide apps (it enumbercates the apps before)

    Does anyone know why this would be ??? maybe bad singing process even though oi did that ? files are missing or it just doesn't work ??? Just a quick question doesn't really matter that much though.

    Did you put the VictoriaSettings.bundle in the PreferenceBundles folder ??? If you did, did you set the permissions of the executable to 755 ???

    I got the nike ipod files from the ipod touch 2G firmware. They worked fine on my iPhone 2G.

    In my opinion apple want to port Vid Cam and VC etc, on iPhone 3G....but can't do it because he have to sell the 3Gs model...so it makes it easy for us to enable these features!

    it seems to be like this ;-)
    Unfortunately voice control is the most difficult thing to port :-(

    ^ill have to say that yeah if he ported this..then congrats! and it is likely that apple already handed to us all video-recording-related files..except yes the only thing different is: the video encoders & decoders, the N88 folder in the Celestial framework, and the 3 main plists...so naturally 3 major group of files..but a total of 13 individial files/plists............

    he must have 2 port the main video decoders+encoders atleast..and i hope he knows that.....
