After jailbreaking your iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPod Touch 4G on iOS 4.3 using Sn0wbreeze 2.3b1 or PwnageTool bundles, you can easily enable multitasking gestures on iDevice just by editing some PLIST files. For those who don't know, Apple introduced multitasking gestures in iOS 4.3 (beta 1| beta 2 | beta 3 | GM) for iPad only but this feature was available to developers only. In order to activate iOS 4.3 multitouch gestures on iPad, connect it to your Mac with Xcode installed on it and hit the "Use for Development" button.
The procedure to enable multitasking gestures on iPhone and iPod Touch running iOS 4.3 is fairly simple. All you need is to edit the 4 files present at the following location:
- N90AP.plist in /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/
- General.plist in /Applications/Preferences.app/
- Settings.plist in /Applications/Preferences.app/
- com.apple.springboard.plist in /var/mobile/Library/Preferences
Open N90AP.plist and add the following key to it:
