Surely Video Recording can be enabled on 3G running 3.0?

    Okay so back when the 3.0 betas were released to developers, Macrumors reported that Video Recording was imminent in the upcoming 3.0 release.

    I was thinking tonight, can video recording be enabled on the 3G, since is it "hidden" in the 3.0 firmware (obviously the quality won't be as good)? Or is it only found in iPhone2,1 (3G S) firmware?

    Just wanted to clarify. :)

    Thank you

    Video is for the iPhone 3GS, it's not supported on the iPhone 3G. You can certainly jailbreak and install CyCorder however, but the quality is nowhere near as good as what the 3GS can offer. :)

    That only adds the software, you cannot record video even with this enabled. The slider appears to switch to and from video, but upon selecting video, the little animated door that normally opens to the camera never opens.

    With 3G you are limited to 15 FPS (30 FPS with 3GS).

    As stated, once JB, Cycorder is free thru Cydia.
