Enable Multitasking Gestures and Side Switch for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS on iOS 4.3[How To]

Apple has already released iOS 4.3 beta for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPod Touch 4G and iPod Touch 3G.This beta version brings a lot of new features.“Multitouch/Multitasking Gestures” for iPad is one of them.Apple has already made it clear during the release of iOS 4.3 beta 2 that this new feature will not be enabled for customers in final build.

Here are the instructions and files you will have to edit to get this feature. This will also enable the side switch settings (Mute or Lock Rotation).

You’re going to need a jailbroken iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.3 beta 1 OR 2 (as they’re both jailbroken). Here are the 5 files you’re going to need to edit:

1. N90AP.plist in /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/
2. General.plist in /Applications/Preferences.app/
3. Settings.plist in /Applications/Preferences.app/
4. com.apple.springboard.plist in /var/mobile/Library/Preferences

com.apple.springboard.plist

1. Add “SBUseSystemGestures” as a key.
2. Set it to “true”.

You can use the other entries in that .plist file as an example.
N90AP.plist

1. Add “multitasking-gestures” as a compatibility.
2. Set it to “true”.

You can use the other entries in that .plist file as an example.
General.plist

1. Download this modified General.plist (thanks to @k0mpresd).
2. Replace “General.plist” in /Applications/Preferences.app/ with the one you’ve just downloaded.

Settings.plist

1. Download this modified Settings.plist (thanks to @k0mpresd).
2. Replace “Settings.plist” in /Applications/Preferences.app/ with the one you’ve just downloaded.

Do a respring or a tethered-boot, and you should see “Multitasking_Gestures” at the top of the list in Settings. Turn it on (should be on already), and use the gestures. The side switch toggle is also in the General section.
