How to: Enable Street View on a iPod Touch v2.2
Apple has a history of crippling the iPod touch firmware in order to artificially distinguish from the more profitable iPhone, starting with the company's removal of the ability to add Calendar events in early iPod touch firmware versions, but the iPod touch modding community has always been quick to correct Apple's faux-oversights. 1. get this file via ssh: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N45AP.plist
2. convert to xml at http://iappcat.com/plist/bin2xml
telephony maximumGeneration 2.5
4. save then using that website again reconvert to binary
5. rename original file N45AP.old
6. copy new N45AP.plist in (make sure permissions are 644)
7. reboot ipod
all new Maps features work however you get a searching for service (replaces the word ipod in the top left) and waiting for activation message that pops up occassionally also music slot in prefs disappears
Hopefully someone can patch the frameworks or springboard which wouldnt require this to be done! Anyway if you're desperate to try it out, thats all that needs to be done theres nothing wrong with stability or anything so you're not going break anything permanately trying this out.
