    I have been digging through the Plists over SSH in the DIR:
    Code:
    "/System/Library /CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/" 
    I have noticed some interesting bits and pieces.

    720p is simply switched on through the plists, included on my 3GS are the iPhone 4 Plists, notably NA81AP and NA90AP:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    	<key>capabilities</key>
    	<dict>
    		<key>720p</key>
    		<true/>
    		<key>camera-flash</key>
    		<true/>
    		<key>displayport</key>
    		<true/>
    		<key>front-facing-camera</key>
    		<true/>
    		<key>gyroscope</key>
    		<true/>
    		<key>hd-video-capture</key>
    		<true/>
    		<key>hdr-image-capture</key>
    		<true/>
    		<key>hide-non-default-apps</key>
    		<false/>
    		<key>hidpi</key>
    		<true/>
    		<key>hw-encode-snapshots</key>
    		<true/>
    		<key>marketing-name</key>
    		<string>iPhone 4</string>
    		<key>venice</key>
    		<true/>
    	</dict>
    	<key>include</key>
    	<array>
    		<string>N88AP</string>
    	</array>
    </dict>
    </plist>
    
    I shall try and enable 720p, but if anyone who KNOWS what they are doing wants to try, please do - I will not be held liable for any damage you may cause.

    As for HDR, by adding the string: hdr-image-capture as true in NA82AP I managed to get the HDR setting in the Photo's section of the settings app, however the icon is not available in the camera app, and I don't know where the camera plists are to edit them to enable HDR, but everything is possible through the plists. (At least logically it is...)

    720P was probably not enabled due to processor/ram/ hard support

    AKA, it was not intended for use.

    I know, but theirs no sense in not trying right? Especially when the lens supports it.

    Well I mean, that's like having a droid and overclocking it to 1.5GHz. The Hardware will probably burn/ not support it. Though you can try, I highly suggest not to, as that is a very easy exploit to find and I'm absoulutely sure some excellent high and mighty coders wouldve found it already.

    Yes, but thats differnt, by increasing the clock you will generate more heat, this will simply use the iPhone's CPU to a high rate like playing a high res game - it wont overheat it.

    Well editing NA82AP doesn't work for 720p, I will keep digging however.

    Edit: figured out that
    NA82AP = 3G
    NA88AP = 3GS
    NA90AP = iPhone 4

    Okay keep trying, you might find another big exploit.

    Im not looking for a big exploit, I literally want to use my 3GS lens to its full capacity, and if I figure it out - ill share my discovery, anyway I am discussing it on here because people who are better skilled than me would probably be able to do a better job.

    Edit: I have stopped for now anyway, im consulting an Apple technician I know.

    Using it to its full capacity is surely a big exploit. Nobody has done this yet, and hopefully you release a way how soon.
