Hack enables MMS on original 2G iPhones

Hack enables iPhone MMS

Owners of the original 2G iPhone should be able to enable MMS messaging, ignoring carrier support, hackers say. While a phone must first have jailbroken iPhone 3.0 firmware, the remaining process is described as relatively simple, requiring only the Cydia framework and the ActivateMMS2G distribution. Alternately, the manual process involves unpacking a file called mms2g.deb on an iPhone, then applying patch files and custom user settings.

Although the iPhone 3.0 software supports MMS messaging, some carriers -- including AT&T -- have not yet enabled the technology for all devices, or any of them. The hack may be able to circumvent these limitations, but not all users are reporting success. In the case of O2, users are being directed via message towards the company's web-based MMS tool.
