How to Enable HD Video Recording on iPhone 3GS (via Cydia)

The iPhone 3GS may not have a processor as good as the iPhone 4 but it itsn’t that bad either. It seems it is capable enough to record 720p HD videos. Some iPhone developers have found out a way to bypass the software limitation to allow this with an iPhone 3GS hack.

This guide has actually been tested on the said devices and works like a charm. The unlock via Ultrasn0w will work on your iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 with almost any baseband. However do make sure that your baseband is one of the following:

iPhone 3G / 3GS Basebands:

  • 04.26.08
  • 05.11.07

Make sure you have a working wifi or data connection before you click on Confirm as Cydia will try to download the app. Once the process is over the Reboot Device button will appear. Click on it and wait for your iDevice to restart. And you’re done. While it restarts you may put in any other sim card other than the carrier the phone was locked to. It worked the first time for me and without any issues. The network search is pretty fast and takes around 15 seconds maximum to register network.

For Your Info:
Jailbreak,
in brief, is the process of freeing your Apple device from the restrictions imposed by the manufacturer. It’s a software installation which will hence give you ability to install third party applications including those unapproved by your carrier or Apple.

This tutorial has been tested and works for all iPhone devices having the latest firmware. The latest firmware version released at the time of writing this post is 4.0.1. If your iPhone’s firmware version is older you can get 4.0 or 4.0.1 firmware here and upgrade in iTunes and then proceed as follows.

Warning:

While the following guide has been tested to work for the suggested devices, please proceed at your own risk. Apple classifies this process as illegal and you may void your warranty. We’re also not responsible if your iPod starts mailing people on distant planets.

Note:

This process is absolutely reversible. You can simply restore your device in iTunes and set it up as a new one. You may want to do it before you take it to the Apple store for repairs.

Don’t forget to thank the guy who made all this work @Comex and do consider donating a dollar if you found this useful. A little encouragement and gratitude does go a long way.
