Apple's iMovie will run on iPhone 3Gs

Apple's new iPhone comes with some great new features, a fantastic screen, two much improved cameras and the ability to edit HD videos on the fly.

But Apple has insisted that its home-grown mobile editing suite iMovie will only work using a brand spanking new iPhone 4 and that the lowly 3Gs just isn't up to the job. Which appears to be a bit of a fib.

Using a jailbroken iPhone 3Gs, David Romhan Torres from Redmond Pie has managed to get what some are touting as the iPhone 4's killer App running perfectly well by modifying the application's info.plist file to a minimum sytem version of 3.0.0 and changing the setting for the front facing camera to 'false'.

Jailbreaking your iPhone will, of course, invalidate your warranty and break Apple's EULA, (not to mention making Steve very upset) but if you want to see the hack in action there's a video on Youtube, until Mr. Jobs has it taken down, of course.

We're sure Apple will bleat about battery life and possible crashes due to processor incompatibility, but it seems that calling iMovie an iPhone 4 exclusive app is a wee bit disingenuous to say the least, especially considering the simplicity of the hack.
