Apple has officially announced most highly-anticipated mobile OS, the iOS 6 on Monday at WWDC 2012 event, and with all 200 new features discovered, the replacement of Google Maps with the new one which the Cupertino company offered was the best maongst them.
Apple with its in-house mapping solution in iOS 6 basically pulled a Siri in that folks in Cupertino have limited this headline feature to the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or later. We now recognized that get all the graphic intensive 3D flaors require A5-enabled devices. But that was broken by a hacker and provided a mod that can enable 3D mappings on A4-devices like iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G.
A Russian developer named Anton Titkov has managed to get iOS 6 3D Maps working on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, complete with 3D Flyovers and turn-by-turn navigation – without jailbreaking or even using Cydia. Simple cracked the code to run the new iOS 6 Maps on the iOS devices.
The remedy comes courtesy of Apple-bent Russian site iGuides, or specifically, member Anton Titkov (known as iTony), who has dug deep into the brand-new firmware version in order to attempt to unlock the 3D capabilities on the A4 based devices.
Similar to Siri, which was once successfully cloned and ported through to other devices, while most of them used via jailbreak tweak Spire, though Titkov has made some amazing workouts, boasting the prospect of 3D maps following the same pattern set up by the voice-recognition implementation by enentually working in full on the older devices, while Apple would like it or not!
Eager to bring and run on older devices and if you’re on an iPhone 4, 3GS or iPod touch 4G and wish to give it a whirl, the process is more complicated than usual, since iOS 6 jailbroken but cannot yet access Cydia. Installing a .deb file usually take ten seconds process (thanks to the jailbreak Mecca that is Saurik’s Cydia infrastructure), until a perfect jailbreak is released for iOS 6, any installations will be required a little additional mess work.
Before you get into work:
* The turn-by-turn navigation is implemented steckhily, at best.
* This hack needs some work as a whole as it feels incomplete.
* You have to rely on a poorly machine translated version of the instructions on how to install iOS 6 Maps on your iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4G, unless you speak Russian.
Here’s the full and complete guide available on the Russian website iGuides or you can also follow our guide how you can bring 3D Maps to your iPhone 4, 3GS, and iPod touch 4G which is posted below. We can’t push you to do so, and you have to decide and proceed at your own rsik, since chances of something going wrong are naturally higher than usual.
Step 1: Download the required .deb file from the source site here.
Step 2: Now open a terminal app on your device or through SSH, and then type the following:
apt-get install mobilesubstrate
Step 3: Now load the .deb file onto your device in /var/mobile Using WunSCP (Windows) or Cyberduck (Mac), before entering:
dpkg -i com.alpden.3denabler_1.0_iphoneos-arm.deb
Step 4: Make sure to respring (or, to be safe, reboot device) in order to take full advantage of the effects.
Only on Monday the considerable announcement was done, this is pretty promising start, and those looking for a fully-fledged iOS 6 on their devices need not be disappointed.
