    I got the Gestures using Xcode4 ($5.00 -worth it!). It's large, 5Gb to download, and 10Gb to install (used an external drive to hold it while it loaded - did this on a laptop, so hard drive space was tight).
    Worked just as easy as the steps listed above. After "canceling" the user i.d. screen, another "error" message regarding iOS compatibility, came up. Just ignore that, as the deed was already done.
    Disconnect and go! I've got Multitouch Gestures, yeah!
    No adverse side effects so far, I'll report if any show up. (iPad 1)

    Xcode is 4.24 Gig - Crazy !!!
    Think before you Sync Since you may Sink
    The More Tweaks you have - Less Memory is left

    I heard you can just pull it out of the CD for Snow Leopard and install the developers tools. Instead of buying CodeX... Is this true?

    I really like this feature. Something I was worried at first is my iPad2 is synced to my WIN7 machine. I purchased the app from my wife's MBP and synced my iPad2 with no problems. After enabling this feature, I synced it up on my WIN7 again with no issues.

    SL ships with X Code 3. I've seen reports of folks using that, but then I've seen others saying it has to be X Code 4. Worth a try I suppose. Let us know how it goes!

    I found XCode 3 did not work although here is a video on other options.

    Through XCode 4 it worked great. It was easy although time consuming as well as space consuming on my Mac.

    Lol, this seems to me like a money grab from Apple. Think about it. It's fairly difficult to do this on a PC, or being non-jailbroken, and for a small price of $5, you can buy Apple's software or register as a developer for Apple. Apple themselves probably leaked the Xcode trick just so they could make more money. Just sayin'.

    A plausible idea, if you take the complexity of the other methods into account.

    However, using XCode4 is by far the longest method of activating the multitouch gestures. Using ibackupbot takes 10min max, from reading the instructions, downloading the app, editing the plist and applying the tweak.
    In contrast, buying&downloading XCode4takes longer, as it is, what 5GB? And then you also need to install it? XCode may be the simplest way of activating these features, but it is not a quick way.

    Agreed lol, it only took me about 10 minutes too, and I went in there edited all the code manually xD
