    Default The hack works on 1.1.2

    The Installer application may not work on 1.1.2, but the underlying hack certainly does. This could easily be included in any of the Advanced/Extended Preferences packages that have been created to put hidden preferences in the Settings menu. Then you could turn it on or off at will.

    Activating the screenshot function is a matter of editing ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist so that it contains a Boolean value called SBMobileScreenshotr that is set to true (notice the strange r at the end, not a typo!)

    One way of doing this is with a plist editor. Another way is with the plutil command from Erica's utilities (an Installer package): in terminal or PuTTY, you'd issue the command
    Code:
    plutil -1 SBMobileScreenshotr ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist
    The screenshots are not bad by the way. They are 320x480 pixels, which is the full resolution of the iPhone screen. They are saved in ~/Media/DCIM/999APPLE (as opposed to the usual 000APPLE for pictures taken with Camera), as uncompressed TIF files with 24-bit color depth, 451 kB each. Even on the phone in Camera Roll they look good, but you must first wait for about 45 seconds for the phone to reach the right zoom level.

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    Rock awesome app. Like how it's built in and don't have to run a whole new app.

    I thought it would be cool to use this in conjunction with Swirly MMS to send screen shots to other people that didn't have email. Even though it shows up in camera roll, it doesn't show up as a pic for swirly mms to send as an mms. Is it a format or location issue? Any help on how to resolve would be fabulous.

    Watch out for Caterpillar 1.2 in a day or two, will be quite interesting update.
    How bad will the update bork up your phone when you go to uninstall it?
