    Ha, I came to post the same thing.

    This is what ive done so far.

    Tried following this guide


    Step 1: Jailbreak iOS 4.3 GM running on your iPhone 4, you can follow the guide posted here using PwnageTool 4.2.

    Step 2: Once you’re jailbroken, launch Cydia and install OpenSSH.

    Step 3: Now you’re going to SSH into your device (by using clients such as Cyberduck for Mac or WinSCP for Windows), and then navigate to the following directory: System>Library>CoreServices>SpringBoard.app>N90.plist

    Step 4: Using a plist editor such as TextWrangler, edit the N90.plist file.

    Step 5: Add a Boolean statement “multitasking-gestures” and set its value to “True”.

    Step 6: Save everything you’ve edited, restart the Springboard.

    Step 7: That’s it, you’re all done! You should now see the Multitouch Gestures option in the Settings.app file on your iPhone 4. Just tap to turn it on.


    anyway, I couldnt find N90.plist, but i did find N90AP.plist
    Downloaded that file to my mac. Double clicked it and it opened in Property List Editor.
    From there opened the pull down menu and clicked multitasking. A plus sign came up on the right side so I added a new item. Called it multitasking-gestures. Made it Boolean. Clicked the box to enable.

    Resprung. Mobile substrate crashed. Rebooted, booted up fine. Opened up settings... nothing new there. ( also as a sidenote dont see mobile hot spot in my settings either?)

    So, went into ifile, browsed to the same place, and it still says its there and on....

    Any suggestions? or anyone get this working?

    (For me this is one of the reasons I was excited about 4.3)

    The easiest way is to use XCode 3 or 4 with iPhone SDK 4.3 and enable development mode (Window > Organizer).

    Just tried, that didnt work. I now have Developer Settings in my settings menu under Store though. The only thing inside here is
    Power
    Logging and an option to turn this on or off.

    hi guys,

    thanks for the heads up

    I got mine working beforehand,
    search out around google and found there's actually a lot of tutorial around
    and some even have the modified plist for download.

    Would it be possible for you to link what you did. (assuming its different that what I tried above, or let me know what I did wrong if you can see). Or a link to the downloadable plist file might be a good shot too.

    Did you only edit that one list or was it necessary to do more than that?

    sn0wbreeze automatically enables them, keep in mind you have to restore to a custom firmware though.

    Hi understando,

    I edit the springboard & 90Ap.plist myself
    the general & setting I just copy over.

    not sure is it ok to put link here so I'll just pm you the link instead.

    You have to have the iPhone SDK as well or the option won't show up.

    Also, those directions are missing a few steps. There is more than one file to change.

    Instead of this super secret link operation, how about someone just type up the instructions?

    it's not exactly a super secret link,
    if you take your time and type 'enable multi gesture for iOS 4.3.1' on google
    you'll find pretty much how to do it on the first url.
