How to Enable HD Video Recording on iPhone 3GS

By , Nov 5, 2010

If you are an iPhone 3GS owner and feel left out because you can’t record HD videos on your iPhone, then rejoice because the jailbreak community is taking care of you.

There is a new jailbreak app in Cydia called HD Video Enabler for 3GS. Just like its name suggests, this tweak will allow you to enable HD video recording on your iPhone 3GS…

This is for iPhone 3GS only, and obviously, your iPhone has to be jailbroken, either with LimeRa1n, GreenPois0n, RedSn0w, or PwnageTool.

I haven’t tried this myself. If you do give it a try, please make sure to leave your feedback in the comments section below.

    This says it’s a Theme? so does it actually change the stock record settings?

    Just wanted to let you know that this doesn’t work. The videos remain the same resolution and frame rate before and after applying the winterboard theme. There is a much easier way to enable 3Gs HD Recording here:

      I know, I really didn’t feel like photoshopping that into an iPhone 3GS ;)

  • appletiser

    for me im guessing this app will be as useless as the HDR Enabler as i’ve not upgraded to 4.1

      and seemingly just as fake is the link to iphoneblogr. a short 27 second test clip resulted in the same file size and no noticeable difference in quality :(

    I haven’t tried this due to the reports if it being fake. A simple search in google revealed a method using ssh and replacing 4 files in the iPhone 3GS. This allows recording at a higher resolution with a frame rate of 30fps. Outstanding results on 3GS but big file sizes!!! 40 second clip about 60Mb

    The iphone is awesome and gives people an experience to discover a whole new world of fun and awesomeness. What it does to people can make them breath -taken away by the features it can show you. if you don’t have this phone,you haven’t lived a life knowing so much fun and amazing moments. I recommend you buy this phone before you can’t. the people at the apple store are trying to let have jump on their new phone. So go have a jump with them and bye yourself a iphone.
