Background: I got the iPhone 2G on release day, never upgraded to the 3G, but just bought the 3GS when that came out. I had a jailbroken 2G and often used Cycorder and iPhoneVideoRecorder. I loved the feature of being able to turn off the display while recording because it allowed me to take relatively long videos without killing the battery. Also, it makes it easy to record video of concerts without having to conceal anything from venue security. I am pretty bummed that those apps don't work on my 3GS because it is a feature that I used so often I almost feel like it was a downgrade in my video recording ability. Any thoughts on what I can do to get this functionality back? I have dabbled in iPhone programming but I guess I don't understand what the limitation is and why I can't use Cycorder or iPVR on my 3GS. It seems like it should be an extremely simple fix. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!
