    As promised, here is a video of how to install the new iPad multitasking gestures that were in the iOS 4.3 Beta. To do this you simply have to to download and install xCode 4 from the Mac App Store. xCode will run you $4.99 so be sure you really want these gestures, it's like paying for a tweak, not that xCode isn't useful.

    Once you have downloaded the 4 GB+ file, install it, and plug your iPad in. Now go to your iPad tab in xCode and click "Use For Developement". xCode will enable Development Mode on your device and now you have the new gestures(you can turn them off in Settings-General).

    If an easy, free, way come out on how to do this, we'll be sure to keep you posted.

    You can use xCode 3 to do this and it is a free download from Apple.

    This is a cool feature but 4GB is way too much just for some gestures. Hopefully a downsized or more storage efficient version will come out. Or even a jailbreak app/tweak. I do like the ease of the gestures, I know they would come in handy. I just can't see burning up 4gb of space just for those few gestures.

    I have some questions. Is the xCode tweak a one off or does it work in conjunction with iTunes and the developer mode will be removed in you uninstall xCode?
    Also, can it be run independently of iTunes i.e. could I use a friends Mac with xCode to set the iPad into Developer mode and continue to sync on my Windows laptop with iTunes?

    This is great stuff - love being able to use these gestures again after they were stripped from final public release of 4.3.

    Thanks for the tip. I just posted on this at my site and linked to you / thanked you of course. My site is Just Another iPad Blog, you can find the post there, it won't let me insert the link here because I'm brand new to this forum.

    Don't worry, as soon as 4.3 is jailbreaked there will be a tweak for it not long after.

    When crApple release an iOS with missing features like this the helpful jailbreaking community always release fixes to give you those features crApple should've in the first place.

    There is already a way to run iMovies on the iPad 1 which crApple wont let you but it runs fine on it, just crApples way of forcing old users to upgrade their devices.
