Printing from iPhone to Wireless Printer

I have an Epson Stylus Office BX305FW Wireless Printer which I would love to print to direct from my iPhone using the Native Print Feature built into IOS.

Its not AirPrint compatible as far as I know. There is an Epson Wireless Print App but its really not that great and you can only print certain things from it.

Does anyone know of any Cydia Apps or Tweaks that will allow me to print direct to the printer over WiFi using the built in IOS print function, without sending it via my computer?

Any help with this would be great

Thanks in Advance!

The frustrating thing is we have an Apple Airport with the laser print plugged directly into the USB port. One would think this shouldn't require a specific printer. :/

Only if one doesn't look into AirPrint.

Obviously printing from your iPhone is not a hardware limitation (as is evidence of a jailbreak option). I am not saying that the information doesn't exist if you look for it. What I am saying is that one would think Apple would make this a feature of their $180 wireless router...

Printopia!

I use Printopia on my home network. It is not an app for my phone, but for my Mac. It is available through the app store. Any printer my Mac can see and use, my iPhone can see and use, as long as they are on the same network.
