[How-To] Run iPhone apps in iPad resolution!

This will work with any app (some better than others, please report which apps worked/didn't work best for you). Will get apps you are downloading which were made for iPhone run in the iPad resolution so it's not all pixelated and such.

You will need to be jailbroken:

[How-To] Untethered iPad Jailbreak (3.2.1)

and have SSH access:

[How-To] SSH into your iPad!


1) SSH into your iPad to/var/mobile/Applications/. Choose the application of your choice (let's do facebook)

2) Download plist editor from Here

3) Find the info.plist file and add these lines using plist editor (see my screenshot below)
<key>UIDeviceFamily</key>
<array>
<integer>1</integer>
<integer>2</integer>
</array>




note: Make sure to back-up this file before you make changes to it (just in case...)
4) Save the file, disconnect the iPad, and restart.

5) Check our your new resolution!

Re: [How-To] Run iPhone apps in iPad resolution!

Any possibility you could do before and after screenshots so we can see the difference? (Don't have my iPad yet)

Re: [How-To] Run iPhone apps in iPad resolution!

I attempted the above on the skype app and when opening the info.plist it doesnt look anything like the above and half the txt is unreadable. When I have more time to play with it, I may make up a tutorial.

I think it depends what text editor you are using as well, let me see what else I can figure out and post it (if you don't get to it first)

Re: [How-To] Run iPhone apps in iPad resolution!

Just go to cydia and download ifile...you can edit the files right on your device. A word of warning this is a temporary solution and even though it does work with some apps, other apps WILL crash your device.

Google docs has a repository which users have submitted a spreadsheet of which programs works and doesn't. I can see the forums filling up already on tis issue...

you're talking about which cydia apps will or won't download. This tutorial is about how to fix the resolution once the app is already downloaded.
