Enable HD Video Recording on Your iPhone 3GS

Mike Pan has successfully modified the iPhone 3GS to record HD video at 30 frames per second!

Here is a way to get the phone to record video (and playback on the iPhone) at 1080×800 @ 30fps at up to 20Mbps. (up from the original 640×480 @ 3Mbps) (I am using the non-standard 1080×800 in order to keep the video at the right aspect ratio)

Antoni has also provided the necessary files to record at a resolution of 960x720 if you so prefer.

Check out the sample video below. We will be posting tutorials on how to do this shortly.

I just tried this on a 3GS with iOS 4.1 And it defenetely works, it made my iPhone record in 960x720 BUUUT, it is crapier in darkness and lasts a little longer to focus. And if you do a fast movement it will look worst. Although this does what its meant to do I will rather keep recording on the original 640×480 for a better quality image.
