    Check to see if Facetime works. Go into settings and turn it off and on, if it doesn't reactivate then its broken.

    My theory is adding the
    Code:
    <key>sms</key><true/>
    makes the iPod believe its an iPhone, and the way iPhone treats FaceTime is different compared to the way the iPod does.

    Is there anyway we can unhide the Messages app without the code above?

    I don't know what it is, buy it isn't the SMSGVExtension. I hid the SMS app again and pt it onto safe mode (disables the add-on). Same problems occur. So it can't be that. If anyone figures out what it is, do let me know. For anyone with a clean jailbreak, or is unjailbroken, turn off your FaceTime and turn it back on. Let us know its not the servers.

    Its not the actual extension, but the unhiding of the sms app from the code you put in N81AP.plist. If we can find a way to unhide the SMS app without editing that then I think we're good to go.

    Did you just change </true> to </false? If you did than facetime still wouldn't work. I got facetime working again by deleting the entire <key>sms</key><true/>.

    I think the sms app is somehow connected to the phone app. I don't know if this is right though. If it's this then there gotta be a way to prevent the sms app thinks the Facetime is a phone app in the iPod Touch 4G. The easiest solution to this is un-hiding the sms without the .plist method

    I actually hid the SMS app through the plist again. It didn't work. It's not the SMS. I think it's he fact that the new FaceTime beta was released for the Mac and they are having server troubles, just like they were when the new iPod was released. Come to think of it, the same thing happened when the iPhone was released. Everyone had FaceTime troubles. I'd just wait and see if it blows over.

    Don't respring or go into safe mode, REBOOT it. It can be easily replicated.

    1. Add code to plist, REBOOT. Facetime won't work.

    2. REMOVE code from plist, REBOOT. Facetime now works.

    This is definitely not a facetime server thing, I got my jailbroken ipod with sms extension as well as my brothers jailbroken ipod without and his facetime works like a charm.

    I guess I need to find a way to fix this. For now use this theme, activate it to get SMS app and deactivate it to use FaceTime. Make sure you remove
    Code:
    <key>SMS</key>
    <true/>
    Completely and reboot first.
