Due to the new release of Jailbreakme.com 2.0 you can now go to that site while on any idevice that has IOS 4.0 (even the IPad with 3.1.3 and it will automatically jailbreak your device.

So now that you have jailbroken it your all :biggrin: ,but now what? Didn't you want multitasking and Wallpaper? well its simple really as long as you have patientce and a brain. So today I will show you a tut that i have put together using other resources and combing them to get you to enjoy multitasking on any idevice with 4.0 and the ipad 3.1.3. Without further ado lets get started.

Things you will need:
  • Jailbroken Idevice duh
  • OpenSSH installed on Idevice
  • An FTP Client

Please note: There are apps out there in cydia that will do this for you, but it takes up space on your Idevice. This is simple and takes no space up at all. thank you


How To Jailbreak IOS 4

On your Idevice go to
Code:
jailbreakme.com
and it will prompt you with a message to slide to jailbreak and a download will automatically start.

Note: If it stays at a purple screen for more then 10secs just hit back and hit refresh and do it again, there servers are getting hammered due to the new release.

How To Install OpenSSH

After jailbreaking your Idevice, open cydia and search for
Code:
OpenSSH
and install it. Then restart your device manually.

How To FTP To Your Idevice

For windows download winscp: Winscp
For Mac download FileZilla: FileZilla

Enter in your Idevices Ip Address.

Note: For FileZilla just start the application, then close it and restart it and you will see a quick connect at the top.

Here is the username and password
Code:
Username: root
Password: alpine

Then hit connect.

How To Enable Multitasking and Wallpaper

After you have connected to your Idevice, navigate to
Code:
\System\Library\CoreService\SpringBoard.app
then copy the file
Code:
N72AP.plist
to your desktop.

You will need to convert the file to read it correctly, so go here
Binary – XML .plist converter

Now you can delete the original N72AP.plist and rename the xml.plst to N72AP.plist.

Open your new N72AP.plist in notepad, for macs open it in textedit.

You will need to add this code to the bottom of the list:

Code:
<key>multitasking</key>
<true/>

That now enables multitasking. To add wallpapers, simply add the following code underneath the multitasking code:
Code:
<key>homescreen-wallpaper</key>
<true/>

NOTE: To make sure wallpapers doesn't slow down your device, delete the following from \System\Library\CoreService\SpringBoard.app on your Idevice

Code:
WallpaperGradientLandscapeBottomT.png
WallpaperGradientLandscapeTopT.png
WallpaperGradientPortraitBottomT.png
WallpaperGradientPortraitTopT.png
WallpaperIconDockShadow.png
WallpaperIconDockShadowT.png
WallpaperIconShadow.png
WallpaperIconShadowT.png

After you are all done editing the plst file hit save. On your Idevice rename the original N72AP.plist to N72AP.plist.bak. Now copy over your newel created N72AP.plist to your Idevice in the same directory and your done. disconnect from your IDevice and reload the springboard and enjoy!

I Hope this hels all of you out. Credit goes to "ibizaGTi" over at ipodtouchfans to the original tut. the rest was edited by me.
