    Hey all, after some in-depth research about how to enable MTG on my iPad i got it working using the Xcode 'use ffor development' method. I then chose to jailbreak with redsnow but missed the option during install to enable MTG. Once the jb was complete, the function was gone. After more research I found an article explaining how to change the plist file to turn the option back on. Made the change, but no dice. :(

    When I view the file it does say MTG is set to YES but isn't working. I tried the winterboard theme for gestures, but still nothing. Am I missing something obvious? My first thought was that I lost the function after the jb, but since I did have it working I know it should work. I wish there was a way to go back to that redsnow install and reselect that option. Anyone have a solution? I'm on 4.3.3

    Thanks in advance,
    Mutton

    Yes, you should be able to run redsn0w again, as long as you make sure to ONLY tick the gestures option. Do not select anything else, in particular don't install Cydia again...

    will running redsnow a second time change any other items I've modified? Specifically, I've modified a file to enable mirroring on my television... will a second run of redsnow overwrite this?

    I'm going to say he follow these steps. I could be wrong.

    Enable Display Mirroring on 1st gen. iPad and 4th gen. iOS devices | Nature's Eye Studios

    My question is what command to use when u save the file and upload it back to the iPad via SSH?

    nm...found it

    Same problem

    I have the same problem with multitouch gestures. I had them working perfectly using the method where you add the key to the file. After I jailbroke, I did the same thing, and it didn't work. I tried it multiple times. I tried the Winterboard tweak that is supposed to do it, and it didn't work either.

    Did you figure out how to fix this? Did you do redsnow again without messing anything up? Please help me, I want my multitouch gestures back.

    At least I know they are possibly with iOS 4, since my jailbroken 3GS has them running. Of course I never use them on my iphone, as the small size of the screen makes them almost useless.

    Run redsnow again and check the box "enable multitasking gestures". Uncheck "install Cydia". Don't need that again. :)

    Free apps are illegal so you so should edit your post.

    But, themes, hacks, and all the stuff apple doesn't allow you to do.
