Enable MMS on Your 2G iPhone [IPhone]

19 Ott/09

AT&T rolled out MMS to the iPhone 3G and 3GS last month, but if you’re the proud owner of a first generation 2G iPhone, you don’t get the “new” feature. If you’re feeling left out and adventurous, this hack brings the MMS.

The particularly annoying thing about Apple not enabling MMS on the 2G iPhone is that there’s no hardware limitation. (Presumably they just want to give consumers one more reason to upgrade.) A user at iPhone-hacking forum Hackint0sh details how to replace a tweaked system file on your iPhone to enable MMS on your 2G iPhone without Apple’s help.

1. Backup original CommCenter (goes without saying…)
2. Replace CommCenter in: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support/ with a patched one.
3. Chmod the new CommCenter to 755
4. Open /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/M68AP.plist and insert a true boolean value for “mms” under capabilities

As you can see, this method requires some serious know-how (head to the original post for more specifics), so proceed at your own risk. As an alternative, the commenters at Gizmodo point out that folks with jailbroken phones can also install a package called ActivateMMS2G using Cydia (the default app management tool for non-approved iPhone apps) that will do most of the behind-the-scenes dirty work for you.

We don’t have a 2G iPhone on hand to test either method, but if you’ve hazarded down this territory already, give us your canary-in-the-coalmine take in the comments.
