    I did a quick search and count not find anything.

    I am looking for an app (compatible with 4.2.1, don't care if it's from app store or cydia) that will record the iPhone's screen, and output it as a video file (.mov, .avi, whatever)

    I'm trying to make a tutorial for youtube and am having a hard time finding such an app.

    It does what you want, but supposedly it only records 5 FPS, which is slow and choppy.

    You would be better off w/ a camera and a tripod..Good luck tho

    And only for 30 sec. The dev stats it's unstable.

    lol.. are there any other options, that record at something more normal, like 20-30 fps? I see a bunch of tutorials etc on youtube (not recorded via a camcorder), how do they do it?! I wouldn't mind paying 5 or 10 bucks for an app, if it exists

    Am I missing something here or can't you just do this through XCODE and some type of screen capture on your mac?

    I would recommend you use the iPhone simulator/xcode and a screen cap application for Mac.

    Bummer.

    In that case, I'd say that using a video camera and a tripod will probably be your best option. Can you give us more detail on what exactly you're making a tutorial for, maybe we can be more helpful if we understand the specifics.
