    The Apple Gamecenter is an application created by Apple to play games with your friends with a built in social network. Much Like Xbox Live.

    Gamecenter is not Officially out yet for iOS devices, but may be added if you wish to do so.

    Requirements
    • A Jailbroken iDevice Running on iOS 4.0 or 4.0.1
    • Winscp
    • Common Sense

    Instructions:
    Download the Gamecenter.app ---> http://bit.ly/aWwTwS, and extract the file. You should end up with two folders after the extraction. You want to drag the Gamecenter.app folder into your iDevice through WinSCP: /private/var/stash/Applications.

    Next Open up the Gamecenter.app folder you just dragged into your iDevice. Scroll Down to french.lproj and right click the folder and click on properties. Change the Octal Value to 0777.

    i tried this and it just went to a black screen and immediatly kicked me out. I set the app folder itself to 0755, and the french,lprog or something to 0777 but it didnt work. In fact i was told it wouldnt work.

    You drag the one that is not in the MACOSX folder. Remember you have to change the octal value for the file inside the gamecenter.app folder called "gamecenter" to 0777

    Put it in the Application folder that has more apps in it.
