iOS 5, with all its new features is the most sought after mobile OS in the smartphone industry. iPad 1 and iPad 2 which were launched with a very small gap in between are one of the top selling tablets. While Apple want’s all its iPad 1 user’s to switch to iPad 2 as they are currently not providing support for all feature’s for the iPad 1, you sure can add some features with a little tweaking in your part. In this tutorial we will show you how to get iOS 5 iPad 2 Gestures On iPad 1 Without Jailbreak.
Users of iPad 2 running on iOS 5 can use multi-touch gestures to navigate between apps, close an app or bring up the App Switcher. Now if you have a Mac and download a free tool you can also add this feature to your iPad 1.
The only requirement to perform this tweak is you must have a Mac and a modified version of the RedsnOw tool which you can download from here. We would like to note again that this is not a Jailbreak trick the modified version of RedsnOw will not Jailbreak your device.
Step 1 : Unzip the modified version of the RedsnOw tool which you have downloaded.
Step 2 : Connect your iPad 1 to the Mac.
Step 3 : Run the RedsnOw tool.
Step 4 : Once launched choose Jailbreak (which I would like to repeat again wont Jailbreak your iPad 1).
Step 5 : Once you have entered in the DFU mode wait for few minutes until your iPad 1 reboots.
That’s it !! You are done with the trick. When you go to the Settings option you will notice that under the General Tab you will have the Gestures option which you can toggle On if it isn’t already. Now enjoy all the multi touch gesture’s on your iPad 1 device.
Current the modified RedsnOw is not available for the Windows platform but we will inform you when it is available.
