Not sure there is still someone around, but I still do use my 3G with whited00r quite happily, even if only as tertiary phone.

Anyway, this is a workaround to see YouTube videos I've thought of a few weeks ago, it works quite fine!
It works fine even on a stock iOS 3 and probably on many devices that are in similar dire straits.

1) First of all, copy your youtube URL. YouTube search actually still works fine using Opera Mini.

2) Now switch to Safari and head for convert2mp3.net . Similar services might work too, but some doesn't and many are not friendly to our old devices.

3) past the URL in the "videolink" field, then chose "video - mp4" as format and 360 as quality. 460 works too and probably 260 will do as well, higher doesn't.

4) Click on the button  and wait a few seconds. When the video is ready click on "download" and it will play!

This is the situation: my power button is broken, so I rely on activator to lock the phone. HOWEVER, the latest versions of activator (since around one year) aren't actually compatible with iPhoneOS 3, if I install it the phone doesn't answer to any input until I get into safe mode and remove it.

I've reverted to an older Activator, but the behavior still happens randomly on rare occasions, occasions when my 3G can end up useless: calls are received and messages displayed, but I can't unlock the phone or do anything until I can connect to a computer and reboot it with recboot or something similar. As said, power button is broken, so I can't do an hardware reboot.

This is not a whited00r problem: happens on stock iPhoneOS 3 as well.

My idea: sending myself (with another phone) one of those Unicode SMSs that can crash CoreText and respring that way. However, none of those I could find online so far seems to work for me, the text displays fine with no crash.

Any known string that will crash the particular version of CoreText used in whited00r?

I see that Google is going to discontinue the old Maps Api at the end on January.

Does anybody know if this mean that we're trough with maps? :(

I was using my beloved iPod Touch 1G as usual and had recently charged it (battery almost completely full), I stopped using for 15 minutes or so, went back to it and…nothing! Black screen!

Things I've tried so far:
-pressing the power and home buttons for several dozens  of seconds, both connected to mac/original charger and unconnected
-entering in DFU and recover mode trough redsnow and recboot and maybe something else.
-letting it charge for a couple of days (even if it's obviously not a battery problem), then tried again the steps above.

My mac doesn't see it at all (and not only in iTunes, it's as if the usb cable had nothing connected to it). It started up only once so far, while connected to the computer, and got to the Apple logo, then got stuck, at reboot nothing again and I wasn't able to repeat that again.

Any suggestion before I organize a miniature funeral?

After many years of using with my iPhone 3g with iPhoneOS3 and a few Cydia tweaks (most notably Activator, as I have a broken power button, and SMSHelper) I've discovered Whited00r and installed it without any bproblem. So far so good, system seems quite responsive (perhaps a bit more than with stock) and I know i'll enjoy a lot the control center.

Really great work, from what I see. :)

There a re few things i'd like to change, though, perhaps someone will be able to point me to the best solutions…

-First and foremost, the new iOS7 font looks less readable to my eyes, the old one was simple perfect. A quick way to go back to it (or a least: what is the path of the new and old fonts, I guess a manual replace would work fine too)?

-Second, I no longer hear the unlock sound, any way to bring it back?

-Third, I'm not much of a fan of the new volume windows that has no transparency (honestly, I've always found them ugly, both on iOS7+ and on the new OSX), there is a way to bring the old one back or to make those translucent?

-Fourth, how do I put Cycorder directly on the springboard? Doesn't make much senso to wait for the camera app to load and then switch to it and wait again…

-Fifth, this is what I get when I open up the music controls (which I've mapped to a long volume down press with activator), any fix? An obvious one would be to remap the Control Center to long volume down press with Activator, how do I do that?

Thanks and keep up with the good work!
