    Greetings Mac Rumours JailBreaking Community!

    I just resurrected my first iOS device and repaired it. It's a 4rth generation White, 32gb ipod Touch. Its been sitting for about a year and a half after a sibling smashed its screen making it somewhat unusable. Ive replaced the screen with a $10 ebay special and must admit the quality is quite good (at least visually), cleaned the head phone jack, and repaired the home button. I once had it Jail broken with red snow but that was back in my high school days. Its currently running iOS 5.1.1.

    I'm recently in need of a dash cam for a few months. I figured i would use this device. I have a dash cam app called "dashcam" LOL, that is quite handy and once i start recording starts recoding on a loop and unlike the built in camera app, still allows me to play my music. Only issue is, i obviously have to start the app every time i get into the vehicle. so i was wondering...

    I want to Jail break it again, and was wondering if there is a JB hack that possibly puts the ipod into a "Dash cam mode" that automatically starts recording automatically both front and rear cameras when power is fed to it through the USB. I work for a small delivery chain so the plan is to mount it to the front dash have my music playing and when i set the dashcam mode, it starts recording when i start the car and feed power through it.

    Is there a JB tweek like that?
    All if any suggestions are helpful and appreciated, as id like to put use into a older device rather then buy a new one. Rather re-use then waste. Thank you.

    Just use Activator to trigger the app whenever power is applied.

    Wouldn't the iPod run out of storage after about a day?

    Thank you. Activator is great! Got it set to open the app, and start my music upon power coming through the device! Shame the app cant be set to auto record.

    Its a 32Gb iPod, and the app thats available on the app store "DashCam" has a auto loop option in its settings. So once the storage fills with video's the device will clear them and over write. Its not a long term solution as my daily driver has a Dash cam.
