The report-

Simply follow the instructions posted below to get it working on your iPhone 3GS. I have tried it on my iPhone 3GS (jailbroken using Limera1n on iOS 4.1) and it has worked perfectly !

Step 1: First up, you will need to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS. Follow our step by step guide  to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS on iOS 4.1 with Limera1n or GreenPois0n if you haven’t already..

Step 2: Next, you will need to install OpenSSH. To do this, Open Cydia, touch on “Search” tab and then search for “OpenSSH”. Install this app and reboot your iPhone.


Step 3: Connect your iPhone 3GS with your computer. Make sure iTunes is not running.

Step 4: Download and install Cyberduck for Mac or WinSCP for Windows. Enter the following details to login to your iPhone:


  • Server: The IP address of your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. Settings –> WiFi –>
  • Username: root
  • Password: alpine
  • Protocol: SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol)


  • Hostname: The IP address of your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. Setting –> WiFi –> <Your Network Name>
  • User name: root
  • Password: alpine
  • Protocol: SCP

Step 5: Download file from here.

Step 6: Navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices/ directory and copy theN88AP.plist file in this location as shown in the screenshot below.

Step 7: Now navigate to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Celestial.framework/N88/ directory and copy AVCapture.plist, CameraRollValidator.plist and MediaValidator.plist files in this location as shown in the screenshot below.

Step 8: Now simply restart your iPhone 3GS and you are done !

And the result? fantabulous! as can be seen in the video embedded below.
