Fake Push Notifications for Jailbroken iPhone Apps

Fake Push Notifications for Jailbroken iPhone Apps

Jailbroken apps may soon be able to send push notifications locally.

KennyTM has crafted a Mobile Substrate extension which fakes push notifications. Being that jailbroken apps can run in the background they don't need to use Apple's push notification services. However, in certain cases it would be nice to have notifications delivered in the same way Apple delivers theirs.

The MobileSubstrate extension called FakePushNotification can be installed in /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries and then be utilized by applications like so:

FakePushNotification com.yourcompany.pushEnabledApp -
body = "Hello world!";
action-loc-key = "Welcome!";

You can download FakePushNotifications from here to try it out. This is not a final release and may contain bugs.

Dont understand the point in this... What in the world would you need to be notified of that was so important from a Jailbroken App?

dunno about you guys, but before such experiments I'd like to have working normal push notifications on 2G phones, working youtube (or cycorder/backgrounder) or just overall more stability for 3.0. Then we can talk about things like local push notifications.

hi, everybody is talking about push notifications not working on jailbroken phones, have you noticed that email push is also not working? please can you confirm this to me, my gmail push used to work excellently with 2.2.1 and on 3.0 it doesnt work for me, waiting for response..

I can't really help you there as I never had email-push enabled, and was under the impression that you need either mobile-me or an exchange server for it, so how did you get it to work for gmail? Apart from that even on non-jb phones (at least 2Gs, not sure about 3G) 3.0 still seems a bit unstable. So maybe it's on normal phones too.

well u only need to setup a mail account from settings, gmail is supported by iphone and then enable push, it received email within seconds as they come in, none of the push service is working on 3.0 for me
