Basically, this allows you to view the videos you record with Cycorder or VideoRecorder directly in your Camera Roll. Additionally, you can trim the videos, exactly like on an iPhone 3GS. You should notice a few warning before taking any further action:

  • This is a hack. You do this at your own risks!
  • This seems to be a little buggy. Again, perform this hack at your own risks!
  • When you trim a video, you lose the original video
  • When the toggle is on, you can’t take pictures anymore (switch it off to take pictures again)
  • This is only available and compatible for jailbroken iPhones. You have to jailbreak your iPhone first. Checkout my tutorial on how to jailbreak your iPhone ( iPhone 2G / iPhone 3G / iPhone 3GS).
  • In order to set this up, you’ll need a few applications available from Cydia: SSH, Terminal, SBSettings, and either Cycorder or VideoRecorder (I recommend Cycorder).

How To Install Video Toggle Editor

1. Download Video Toggle and unzip the file.

2. SSH the unzipped file to \private\var\tmp\..You may see instruction on how to ssh your iPhone

3. Enter Terminal as a Super User (type su – username: root – password: alpine) and type bash /private/var/tmp/VideoToggle/install (note there is a space between “bash” and “/”

4. Your iPhone should respring by itself. If it doesn’t, simply reboot your iphone.

You should now have a new toggle in SBSettings that allows you to edit videos recorded. To try it out, either record a new video or go to your Camera Roll if you already recorded videos and you should see your videos there. Open a video and you should see the bar that lets you trim videos.
