Saurik talks about the iPhone jailbreak

Saurik describes the origins of Jailbreak and Unlock for the very first model of the iPhone. Jay explains that initially there were two important things to do with the iPhone 2G - to use other carrier than AT&T and to install any application.

He continues discussing the main applications from Cydia. Cycorder was the first to allow video recording, and Winterboard was the only one that allowed users to change the graphical interface of the iPhone. He also speaks about Comex, the hacker who is currently working with the Dev Team for releasing and Unlock for the iPhone 4.

Apple has ordered a large quantity of LED flash for the future iPhone's camera

Unfortunately there is no flash on the iPhone's camera. The picture quality and the resulting video are really  good, but when it's dark you just do not see anything on photos. According to rumors, in fact, Apple is looking to buy from a specialized manufacturer a large amount of LED flash to be mounted close to the camera probably in the next version of iPhone.

These Items, according to a company in Amsterdam, are usually combined with 5 megapixel sensors. Hopefully we will soon see a new version of iPhone with 5-megapixel camera and LED flash.

Apple Approves Video Recording App for the iPhone 2G/3G

Apple has approved iVideoCamera, an application which lets you record video on any iPhone including the iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G. Now you don't need a 3GS to record and share videos with your friends and family. Works with firmware 3.1 OS installed and includes:

Ability to save to your camera roll or "Photos" and share via:

  • FaceBook
  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Twitter and more coming soon


  • The iPhone can only capture about 3 frames per second
  • Videos are limited to about 1 minute in length
  • Resolution is low: 160x213

ivideocamera ivideocamera-2 ivideocamera-3

You can purchase iVideoCamera in App Store for $0.99 (link).

This is a great step forward, because Apple did not allow such apps to be in Appstore before. The quality of the recorded video is quite low, however it might be improved in the future. Could the acceptance of iVideoCamera open the door for Cycorder, popular video recording app that can be installed via Cydia?

Video Recording, voice control and compass in future iPhone


It looks like the iPhone will record video this summer. Buried in the latest iPhone 3.0 beta is this screenshot of what's obviously the iPhone's still dormant video recording interface. Besides the honking red record button in the center, there's a toggle to switch between the still camera and video recording. Inside the configuration files where the screen was discovered were mentions of an "auto-focus camera," "magnetometer" (digital compass), and "Voice Control."

Veency: remote control your iPhone [Cydia]

This application is developed by Jay Freeman, the creator of the Cydia. Veency is a free app that allows iPhone owners to remotely control their iPhone from PC or Mac desktop via a VNC client.

Here are some of the features:

  • Launch applications on your iPhone
  • Reply to emails, text messages, and more
  • Rearrange icons
  • Lock/Unlock your iPhone
  • Browse through Photos and Contacts

Of course you cannot do two finger gestures with this app. All other actions can be done with the click of your mouse. The only area in which Veency fails tragically at is when opening any video recording application on the iPhone.

This application is avaliable for jailbreaked iPhones via Cydia installer.

Be sure to restart your iPhone after installing Veency and connect to the server using a Wi-Fi connection. We recommend using UltraVNC or TightVNC to connect your Windows desktop. If you're using a Mac, we recommend Chicken VNC.

Here is a video demonstration:

Remote access software or remote desktop software is software that allows you to access a remote computer.
