    This is how to use the "secret" DemoApp.app. This lets you play any video indefinitely.

    NOTE: This is for 1.1.4.

    NOTE 2: I have included both the video and my version of DemoApp.app, which is set to be visible on your springboard.

    Before you start: Unzip the zipped folder. It included a .mov file and DemoApp.app

    1)Put my version of "DemoApp.app" into /Application and overwrite the old one.

    2) Reboot to make sure it works.

    3) Put "Demo.mov" into /private/var/mobile

    4) Reboot again!

    5) When your iPoT starts, you will see the Springboard for a second, and then the app will open. It should start playing the Mac OS X "Welcome" video.

    6) To exit, just hit the home button.

    NOTE 3: The video will start when ever you restart, respring, or click DemoApp.

    This app actually plays the video in portrait mode! Its AMAZING!!

    NOTE 5: You dont have to do all this.

    The easy way

    1) Unhide DemoApp.app using your application of choice.

    2) Put Demo.mov into private/var/mobile

    3) Reboot.

    4) Have tons of fun.



    There you go! Apple used this app to loop videos when there was an iPoT/iPhone on display.


    And another thing!
    This application can also act as a sort of screensaver. Instead of locking, it activates the video and starts playing. For example, if you set your iPoT to lock after 1 minute, after a minute, the application will launch.

    But wait! Theres more!
    DemoApp.app is now available in Installer, along with videos to use with the app. It is in malibusurfer93's repo:

    A huge thank you goes to him for putting it up there.

    Finally, there's at least some kind of purpose for the DemoApp.

    Just wondering, does the movie file have to be a .mov?

    Can I just use a video that is an .mp4 file and rename it to Demo.mov?
