Bluetooth File Transfer Coming to the iPhone Soon

27 01 2009

The Bluetooth file transfer application will only be available through the cydia distribution framework for jailbroken iPhones. The tool appears to be based on the work of the BlueSn0w project, which theoretically allows developers to write/implement fully functional Bluetooth stacks that run on your iPhone, thus opening the door for not only file transfers, but also use of  Bluetooth keyboards/mice, syncing with host computers and other mobile devices, and more robust support for pairing with third-party Bluetooth devices.

A video, embedded below, of the transfer tool shows files being moved from a Mac to the iPhone, and subsequently from the iPhone to a Sony Ericsson phone:

iPod Widget: Bring New Addons For SBSettings Toggle

12 01 2009

This provides an iPod play / pause widget available at Cydia for free. This widget allow you access your  iPod app without open and closed another apps, you just start playing music by pressing it at your SpringBoard. This widget solves this issue by giving you a play / pause button that will load a random track and start playing it. If you have paused a song, it will resume where you left off. If your iPod gets closed and reopened, iPhone rebooted or such, then it will randomly select a song and will not just start at the same song each time.

An alternative is to press power, then double tap home. This lets you start a track, then slide to unlock and you’re back to safari. This seemed ok at first. But unfortunately, it always starts playing on the same song. This was very annoying.

Before you use iPod widget, you have to install SBSettings first. Check out my post here on how to install SBSettings via Cydia.

Install iPod Widget Via Cydia

Step 1: Launch Cydia. Select “sections” at haptic menu, select “Add Ons” category and select “iPod Widget” or you can tap “Search” in Cydia and type “iPod Widget”.

Step 3: If you iPod toggle still doesn’t appear on SBSettings, you have to setup first by launch SBSettings > press “More” button > select “Set Toggles” > and set iPod on > press “home” button and your iPhone restart automatically.

How To use iPod Widget

Without this widget and you are in an app like safari, and you want to start your iPod playing music, you have to exit the app, load the iPod app, start your music, and then reload safari once again. If you want to play you music while surfing internet using safari, just tap accross the status bar at the top or you can tap the status bar within 1-3 second and your SBSetting will pop up on your Home Screen.

Play Flash Video using iMobileCinema

3 01 2009

When you browse web page with embedded YouTube video using iPhone’s Safari, you will see a little blue cube, appear on your screen,  its mean the mobile Safari is not capable to play Flash, as well as, Flash video. So, when you come across any web page with flash video (e.g. YouTube video), Safari doesn’t show you the video but a little blue cube.

The recent release of iMobileCinema powers iPhone to playback flash video in Safari. iMobileCinema, which is still in beta, is a Safari plugin and only works on jailbreak iPhone. I have installed and tested on my iPhone. Yes, it does work on YouTube and Google Video. But for other websites with embedded YouTube videos, as I tested, it doesn’t work quite well. iMobileCinema detects the embedded video but you just can’t playback. As mentioned by the development team, iMobileCinema is still in beta. You’ll see better flash video support in coming official release.

iMobileCinema only support YouTube And Google Video for a meant time

Install iMobileCinema via Cydia

Step 1: Add the source (http://d.imobilecinema.com) at Cydia repository. For those who do not know how to add a source in Cydia, you can check out this post here.

Step 2: Launch Cydia. Select “sections” at haptic menu, select “Multimedia” category and select “iMobileCinema” or you can tap “Search” in Cydia and type “iMobileCinema”.

Step 3: Select “install” button at the right top and confirm it to install.

Note: iMobileCinema can only play flash-based video but not flash. Its just a safari plugin so you can’t see any icon of iMobileCinema on your SpringBoard.
