Enable Video Editing Mode in iPhone 2G and 3G


iSpazio posted a guide on enabling video editing toggle. VideoToggle will help you to install the toggle for Video Editing on the iPhone2G and iPhone 3G. In this way, you will be able to record video using Cycorder, which will end up directly in the photographic film iPhone and then you can edit / cut just as iPhone 3GS. The function is regulated by a practical Toggle for SBSettings and then we provide all the details to install the mod.

Warning : These Mods are still in beta and available for testing purposes only and we are not responsible for any damage, before getting started please Backup iPhone Contacts, SMS, Notes & Call History manually (Just in case)


  • SBSettings installed on iPhone (Available on Cydia)
  • OpenSSH installed on iPhone (Available on Cydia)
  • MobileTerminal installed on iPhone (Available on Cydia)
  • Cycorder (to record video) installed on iPhone (Available on Cydia)
  • Cyberduck or WinSCP installed on your computer ( How to Access iPhone via SSH on Windows Mac)



Step 1 : Unpack the file. Zip just downloaded and connect via SSH to your iPhone.

Step 2 : Copy the entire folder “VideoToggle” in the following location: “private / var / tmp”

Step 3 : Run Mobile Terminal on iPhone and type these commands:

  su root
  bash /private/var/tmp/VideoToggle/install

Step 4 : Will be made of processes, and finally there will be a Respring. At this point SBSettings open and see a new Toggle (in red) called VideoToggle.

When the toggle is off, you can record videos and save them in a film camera. When want to modify and cut them, you must activate the toggle and go exactly with iPhone 3GS! You can then select the part you want and then click the Cut button on the upper right.Also, if the toggle is ON, you wont be able to use the photo camera. Turn it OFF, and you’ll get your camera back.

Note: When the Toggle of Video Editing is active, it will be impossible to take pictures through the camera, which will remain forever closed. “Remember then toggle to activate only when you need to change something.

To remove the software, start the terminal and type these strings:

  su root
  bash /private/var/tmp/VideoToggle/uninstall

    to anyone and everyone you have to completly reboot your iphone once you have switched the video toggle off to get your camera to work. if you get a red exclamation mark it was either to large for sending or it timed out. i use 3g video mms enabler modyoui repo to send videos and videomover beyouriphone repo. the 3g vmenabler limits videos to like 600kb kinda pointless though.

    When I try to send a video via mms, I get the ” ! “. Is this common?

    If your video isn’t showing up in the camera reel, turn off video edit in the SBSettings then turn it back on. Thumbnails are black but there is video.

    Hey I’ve succesfully added the video toggle and it works, and I’ve also succesfully added the mms capability to my messaging app without updating my phone. Now that I have both of them active I can send video messages, but when my friends get them they can see them. They can only hear the sounds in the background any ideas on how I can get this to work

    Is there a host site I could just ad on icy or cydia to direct download this without the unrar hassle and ssh/total commander thing?

    Yep, my still camera still won’t open with the toggle off. Thanks for the effort guys! If the still camera worked, it would be good, if you could fix the toggle so it could go from still to video in the camera app instead of Cycorder, it would be even better 😀 Thanks again!

    Thanks! This is up and working on my iPhone 2G, although the bash command has to be pointed at /private/tmp/iVideoToggle/install 😉

    Everything works, just cant get my camera app to work, even after switching off VT….any ideas

    The process of “bash /tmp/VideoToggle/install” instead of bash /private/var/tmp/VideoToggle/install…you should have toggle after that is completed. so, in short do all steps, but use “bash/tmp/VideoToggle/install” to get toggle and working on 2G.

    I tried this with iPhone 3g and OS 3.0 jailbroken with redsn0w and I have sbsettings installed. I get the option for a toggle, but I don’t get the actual toggle in the pull down menu. Anyone else experience this?
