Thats it! Now go to your Camera Roll in Photos app and you should now have iPhone 3GS Camera Roll, Video Editing and Video Uploading options in your iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G !! Credit for this hack goes to Simplyskate who developed this little plug-in called VideoToggle for SBSettings.
Notice the Videos option being added in Photos App.
Yay !! We can now play videos recorded from Cycorder app in Photos app on our iPhone 3G and iPhone 2G.
Ability to trim videos on iPhone 3G and iPhone 2G.
Options to either “Email Video” or “Send to YouTube”.
Note: VideoToggle is still in beta and has some bugs. When it is enabled, Camera app will NOT work properly. You will have to disable the VideoEdit toggle from SBSettings to make the Camera app work again. Enable VideoEdit toggle only when you want to enable the video editing options etc. I will keep you guys updated on any future updates which this app will get.
