Big news for iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G users! After learning about iPhone OS 4 jailbreak news earlier today, some iPhone devs/hackers have now apparently managed to enable multitasking on the older iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G, both of which were limited by Apple due to lower amount of RAM on these devices. This is what a recent tweet from an iPhone dev said.
wow looks like multitasking can be enabled on the 3G if you just set multitasking=TRUE on the capabilities plist in SB (N82AP.plist)
For those of you who don’t know, N82AP.plist is one of the two main files in the system directory which includes all the main functions of the OS that can be adjustable to ones liking. According cdevwill, there is this variable of multitasking which if set to TRUE from FALSE can enable multitasking on iPhone 3G. Now we are not sure if you can just go ahead and enable it just like that, or if it will require a jailbreak. Stay tuned as we will keep you updated.
