    I have an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2. Obviously, iPad 2 provides a much better iMovie experience than on the iPhone 4 because of its large screen and A5 processing power as opposed to only an A4. For a long time, I've wanted to shoot videos on my iPhone 4 because the quality is superb and then edit those videos on my iPad 2. I couldn't do it because I didn't want to buy a Camera Connection Kit for $30 and iTunes is useless. But thanks to the jailbreak, I was able to use iFunbox to move the videos from my iPhone 4

    to my iPad 2,

    then use the jailbreak app iFile (filesystem for iOS devices) and use the functionality called "Add to Camera Roll"

    As anyone who has ever used iMovie on an iOS device before, you can only edit videos in your camera roll. Because my iPad 2 is jailbroken now, I was able to install iFile and export my videos to my iPad 2 for editing, and my video was completed on time!

    Here is the completed, EXTREMELY AWKWARD, funny video:

    i get so mad about this. Apple need to wake up and give us a central file system. There is no excuse at this point other than pure greed.

    Haha, don't think it'll happen. Steve Jobs has been trying to get rid of the filesystem for a decade now.

    Is there a reason you can't use Dropbox as a common file repository?

    I think that Dropbox does not put files in your camera roll. They need to be in your camera roll to be used by iMovie. I could be wrong though. I am at work and cannot check.

    iFunBox lets you go into the iOS device's file system. From there, I just drag and dropped to my computer, then from my computer to my iPad 2.

    OP, your video was quite amusing. You need to pay attention to your cropping though! However the gleaming errors make it funnier.

    I completely agree. Now, I watch it because of how funny and terrible my editing skills are. This especially makes me crack up and I did it on purpose

    Use photosync from the AppStore. Can send the video files via Bluetooth or a wifi network and they end up in the camera roll. It's like 3 dollars or something and a piece of cake to do :)
