When click on faceit3GS for 4.2.1 I cant find an option to install...I think the instal file is missing from the stored location. Can anyone help?

hey install source but after when i was installing face time tweaks 3gs 4.1 its show note : the requested modifications cannot be applied dude required dependencies or confilicts that cannot be automatically found or fixed ? please what is that meaning can anyone explain me ? Thanks

If anyone wants to get FaceIt-3GS working on 3G download from cydia -> 3G Unrestrictor. Once you download that go to Edit -> + -> search MobilePhone (FaceTime) add that to the List and your good to go. Enjoy!

Hi I installed. But still i m not able to get it working. When i try to call someone through facetime it show me ringing but other person dont receives any call Any idea?
sss - November 9, 2010 at 5:06am
i have same problem
Kas - November 9, 2010 at 9:13am
I have the same problem, too :(
Redwings - November 9, 2010 at 2:47am
Installed on iphone 3GS OS 4.1. Wow.. worked perfectly. Initially if you go settings at SpringBoard, go Phone and you see, waiting for authorization, once you close the settings and reopen it again, it showed "Your phone number will be shared with people you call with FaceTime" Go to contact list and select a contact and you realize the FaceTime button is appeared. I tried called a iphone4 and it showed the camera upside down while waiting to connect iphone4. Once connected, everything is prefect !!

Have you tried to uninstall and see any thing is missing from your phone ?

we do not say like u (christ) Come to true way of life...follow Prophet Muhammad. ...
Mauricio - November 8, 2010 at 11:31pm
Once I turn it on, I get a "Waiting for Activation" message, but nothing happens?? So I uninstalled it, reboot, and surprise something messes up the phone, and I get no keyboard sounds, no alerts, no vibraton, etc.. anyways, I had to reinstall the app in order to get my phone to work correcty, but the facetime video won't work!!!
Jason - November 8, 2010 at 10:40pm
After install this .. WhatsApp will crash .. anyone got solutions ?
me - November 8, 2010 at 10:36pm
tried all kinda things but wouldn't activate.

To answer my earlier question 3G Unrestrictor (and i would imagine My3G) works perfectly with this. I made a 3G facetime call from a car to my friends iPhone 4. I had to redraft a couple of times to get FaceTime to activate before I unrestricted it.
DT - November 10, 2010 at 3:43pm
You got 3g Unr.. working with FaceIt-3gs firmware 4.1?? I havent gotten it to work or Facebreak wont work either
Dan Diemer
Dan Diemer - November 10, 2010 at 4:58pm
Yah after installing faceit and getting it to work (which took a couple reboots and I think being in range of both WiFi and 3g) I added it to 3g Unrestrictor. It was called MobilePhone (facetime)
Danny Thomson
Danny Thomson - November 10, 2010 at 7:53pm
Thanks Dan, I had to search for Mobile Phone in 3G Unr. Thats why I didnt find it the first time. It works now. Much Appreciated!
bud - November 8, 2010 at 7:43pm
the camera is upside down. can you fix that ?
shadu - November 8, 2010 at 7:27pm
hitler is the biggest terriost who killed more than 6 million people and he was a christian, so does that mean all christian s are terrorist???. Learn english n learn what terrorism means... who ever terrorises anybody is a terrorist... so if u have threatened or scared anybody and terrorise anybody ur terrorist as well... stop ur bs this is not a political website... so i u like use it if dont shut up and go home
LiveAndLetLive - November 8, 2010 at 8:32pm
Hitler wasn't the biggest terrorist, but close. FYI he wasn't Christian either. Your both blind. Lets not compare religions, it will not bring peace among men.
Joe - November 8, 2010 at 2:56pm
Watch for this app people. I installed this app and my iphone stop working. Is a VIRUS and won't let you reboot or restart your iphone. once again becareful
me - November 8, 2010 at 6:33pm
u r an idiot thats all i can say
me - November 8, 2010 at 12:23pm
u should change the title to how to enable facetime and HDR photos cause after installing this HDR option started showing up in my camera app and i can turn it on and off. which it didn't before with the tweak that already exists
Gio - November 8, 2010 at 12:10pm
cannot install the app... Note: The requested modifications cannot be applied due to required dependencies or conflicts that cannot be automatically fixed.
aR!ff - November 8, 2010 at 10:45am

Pradeep - November 8, 2010 at 8:08am

Anybody wanna help me make a small mirror add-on/hack/mod so we can see the 3GS screen when we video call using face time? If you are interested or have some ideas please reply to this comment I'll get an email to check you out. Soon a project page about it!
SomniusX - November 8, 2010 at 8:16am
These are all very nice yoshac, anything shipping from europe? Or better if anybody is into DIY a way to make one?
vakas - November 8, 2010 at 2:16am
Facetime hackivator doesn't work on iPhone 4.
Mertin - November 8, 2010 at 12:28am
Doesn't work for me. The option doesn't show up in the phone menu. Also breaks my phones sound and vibration when I uninstalled it. Reinstalled to make it work again but still no facetime option. It seems to modify some of the same files as my haptic keyboard mod. Which I suspect may have something to do with my problems...
user - November 8, 2010 at 6:03am
I have the same problem. I have noticed when you enter safemode the option then appears. so not sure why it doesnt normally. Maybe a conflict with another cydia app?
user - November 8, 2010 at 8:11am
got it working, if you have ios multitasking disabled then it doesnt work
Mertin - November 8, 2010 at 8:18am
Multitasking is on still. Can't get it working. I do see it in safe mode, but not normally. Hmmph.
user - November 8, 2010 at 8:36am
well im confused, i had to restore my phonr twice this morning. had it working, then i installed SB settings aswell, iphone crashed and then wont boot. im giving up, not worth it for me, would of been nice to have it tho. but il do with out. i dont want to restore for the 3rd time!
Pradeep - November 8, 2010 at 8:40am
MAke sure ur on 4.1.
user - November 8, 2010 at 8:44am
ha thanks, im not that much of a noob lol. :)
Jason - November 8, 2010 at 7:35pm
I having the same issue as well. Now my 3Gs doesn't have click, keyboard sound. Any solutions ??
Brandon9031 - November 8, 2010 at 12:01am
Just updated from 3.1.3 to 4.1 on 3GS... This works great everything installed easy and smooth. Dont worry about our box looking sideways I tested it and my gf said that i look normal on here screen nothing is sideways just up and down..
Felicia - November 7, 2010 at 11:52pm
Hmm, i can't even install iphoneislam :(
idwa - November 8, 2010 at 3:53am
Yeah - me neither - I'm in UK - says: "The indicated repository could not be found…" Any chance of adding this to another source?
me - November 8, 2010 at 9:36am
did u try http://apps.iphoneislam or just http://iphoneislam cause now they have ads blocking lot of the pics in tutorial
Idwa - November 8, 2010 at 10:09am
Did the source exactly like it states in the tutorial... Will try the other way now!
me - November 7, 2010 at 10:58pm
tried facetime hacktivator patch for it to work since im on tmobile but didn't work. it says waiting for activation. i guess i'll do fresh restore and activate it using att sim and than jailbreak and download this tweak
Ziggy - November 7, 2010 at 11:13pm
You have to wait a while for it to activate ( 5-10 min maybe a bit more). Be patient.
me - November 8, 2010 at 9:34am
lol. thanx i'll try that
Me - November 8, 2010 at 10:17am
Left it for good 16 mins but nothing happened
casey - November 7, 2010 at 10:56pm
Is the camera funky for anyone else? Flipped, etc? Maybe I'm holding my 3GS wrong. Turn it sideways & it's flipped wrong. Oh well. Works great though!
Ziggy - November 7, 2010 at 11:15pm
Yes, its flipped sideways for me as well. Can't complain though .. at least I have it now!
Pichol - November 8, 2010 at 10:57am
For me the camera is rotated as well, anyone knows if is there a correction?
Pichol - November 8, 2010 at 11:19am
Thanks to Google Translate I found out they know the picure is rotated and are working on fixing this, BUT they said the receiver is getting it right!!!!
una - March 12, 2011 at 1:03pm
Any news on fix this upside down camera bug?
Ziggy - November 7, 2010 at 10:53pm
Just tried it! Works great! Note: It seems the person with an IPhone 4 must select facetime on THEIR phone for it to work correctly.

dan diemer - November 8, 2010 at 12:18pm
I was able to successfully call myself from the OS X version of facetime to my 3gs. Does anyone know if this works with My3g to allow 3g facetime?
