    There are camera apps such as iVideoCamera that can take video on the iphone 3g and import them to camera roll. Well I think instead of people trying to unlock the Video Camera in the native camera app some one should re create a duplicate of the native camera app. It should be real simple. There are a lot of apps that do the same (and more) thing that the native app does, so why not just change the UI to replicate Camera.app and put it on Cydia. I would do it but I dont know how to. I opened Xcode and quickly got lost.

    unless you are using whats on the phone and skinning it, thats using apple's copyrighted program. and I think that this forum would disapprove of this topic.

    What? You can't just skin something and it becomes yours. That's not how things work.

    Im talking about making a replica application of the camera app. There shouldnt be any problems with that.

    So you want to create a copy of the Camera.app on the 3G then add video support on it?

    yup. Its possible since there are so many other picture apps and video apps on the app store. I wish i knew how.

    Im just putting out the idea. There are people trying to unlock video on the Camera app but its easyer to just make a new app that looks exactly the same. maybe add in a control were when you tap on the screen you get a menu that has effects and other controls. so it looks exactly like the camera app but would work a lot better.

    I didn't say skinning makes it yours, Apple allows thing to skin safari and other core apps as long as it uses public APIs, copying and editing a core app is bad.

    I don't see why this wouldn't be allowed on this forum. When I see this, the iPod.app modification for the iPod Touch to make it similar to that of the iPhone comes to mind.
