    i own an iPad1 jail broken running iOS5.0.1 . However I did not check the box next to 'enable multitasking gestures' because I thought that was unnecessary because I had it before jailbreak. Anyway, is there a way to enable it via I file?

    I am not sure about doing this via iFile. I remember it could have been done a couple of firmware versions ago, I just don't remember if it's available for 5.0.1.

    However, if you jailbroke with redsn0w, you can re-run the redsn0w executable file to activate the multigestures. Open redsn0w and select to jailbreak - only you MUST make sure the UNcheck the "Install Cydia" box.

    I've done this myself (because I forgot to tick that mulitgestures box). However, what I don't remember is whether this restores your device (so that you have to re-install a backup to get everything back the way it was). So, it may be drastic in that you have to do everything over again - or it may be simple in that it puts the multigestures option.

    Maybe someone else remembers?

    Regardless, that's the only way I know to put multigestures on the iPad. So, as always, ensure you have a good backup (both in iTunes and of your Cydia tweaks) before you start. Cause, you never know...

    Like Mickey said all you have to do is re-run redsn0w and uncheck "install Cydia" but check the "enable gestures" box. It will not delete or restore anything.
