    Has anyone got this working yet? I read a few websites and they say to use iPhone configuration utility to add iMovie to the iPad but I can't get it to show up to install!

    Also it says it needs os 4.2.6 so where is the plist file I need to change and how do I change it to work with 4.2.1??

    Cheers

    Wow fakeclockup is a little bastard it took me 3 hours to figure out that it was fucking up iMovie!!!

    Theres an app on cydia for installing ipa files without iTunes, that's the easy way to get iMovie working

    The hard way is editing a couple lines of code in the ipa. Google iMovie info.plist edit and you should figure it out

    Yeah I tried that twerppoet but when I add iMovie, it doesn't show up in applications, so I've got no install button.

    Cheers

    Sorry. I won't be playing with it myself this week or so. Hopefully someone else will have an answer for you. Preferably one that does not involve jailbreaking.

    That's a personal wish, not a slam at jailbreaking. So far I've got no real reason to do it, and I'm not looking for one. Though I have to admit that iMovie might just be the app to push me over the edge if that was the only solution.

    what do you edit though??

    I edited the front facing cam to false, what else?

    obvisiously I need it to work on 4.2.1 but I can't see a reference to software version only 'software version identifier'

    cheers

    I'm confused? Are you jail broken or no? If your jailbroken, you should edit your system version information too. Go to Ifile, /system/something/coresomething and edit the systemversion file to read 4.3 and 8F190

    I just plugged in 4.2.1 wherever it read 4,2,6
    And deleted the required hardware block

    Btw if your on windows you will need to download a plist editor, notepad won't read it correctly

    Sorry its kind of confusing I just figured it out tonight looking over some old 3GS tuts on google, if you need more help just ax

    I've opened it in editpad pro and its fine, I just can't see 4.2.6 anywhere??

    it was at 12am last night, so I may have been a little tired so I'll try again later.

    if its not too much trouble can you upload your edited plist somewhere??

    cheers

    This is the version number part that was changed

    There is also a bit about required hardware you may need to cut out

    thanks a lot man! where is this plist to? instead the payload or outside?

    and just for the record I did download the original file, no pirating here!

    cheers

    a sidenote, imovie gets a bit choppy when i put a video, a song and a theme to it so I dread to think what its gonna be like on the ipad!

    Man, this seems complex. I tried the jailbroken way of just installing from a certain place but after download it told me installation failed. I'm on 4.2.1. I see where y'all said to go into the system and change the version number but That scaresssss meee...lol not trying to mess the the internal root files. Won't changing that iOS version number mess up things if u try to update? Like iTunes will think u already on new version. So this works jailbroken or not on 4.2.1? If so then u have to change stuff around in the iPad system files?

    Demandarin, the worst that can happen is the .ipa won't work, it won't effect the ipad, the only issue some people have been experiencing is that when you sync its removes it, but I think they were using the iphone config utility to do this.

    you have to edit the plist to make front facing camera to false and then get rid of the 4.2.6 references and change them to 4.2.1

    cheers

    edit the ipa file NOT the ipad or iphone plist!!

    Have unheard of an app that is said to be on par or better thn imovies for iPad, called ReelDirector 3.0? Plus it runs on ipad1 no problem. Since that imovies hack into iPad brings issues with sync to iTunes, I will see what this ReelDirector is about!

    Ohhhh...ok....I have the file. I will try it out. Have u heard aboit people having issues syncing to iTunes after iMovie install to ipad1? I think it was using non jailbreak method with iPhone utility installation on PC/Mac. They use that to install it to iPad and have those issues afterwards although imovies runs.
    Edit: I saw u noticed that also. Yeah, it happens from using the iPhone utility.
