Flyover 3D function in iOS 6 Maps hacked to work on the iPhone 4 (video)

The concoction, called 3D Enabler, is running on an iPhone 4 with iOS 6 beta and the earlier jailbreak, and so far there is no word if voice-guided navigation will be coming too, since it needs Siri present in order to function.
The process of hacking Flyover onto the iPhone 4 is not for the faint of heart, but if you are curious about it, you can follow the instructions in the source link. At least it proves that restricting Flyover to run only on newer Apple gear has nothing to do with the chip generation, as was previously inferred.

Yeah, needs A5 processor my @$$.... This is deliberate fragmentation by Apple, similar to Siri to force people into buying new devices. For shame Apple, for shame...

As a non-fan of Apple, I would very much like to agree with you, but judging by the demonstration in the video, I think Apple made the right call. iOS users are not used to and probably would not appreciate a maps system in which they would be looking at gray boxes much of the time they are scrolling through the map. The slower processing power does result in a tangible lag that takes away from the user experience, which goes against Apple's most basic design motif.

I used to be an apple ass kisser . Cause they used to be the best , until now ! Now I just think apple sucks . Not like the device can't use the feature , it's just that they want to make sure the older ones don't get all that so people will upgrade to newer ones . Bye apple , I will never buy another iOS device again (except maybe next year's iPad ) Now suck my cock
