When we first wrote about Ustream, the major news flash was (a) it was free, (b) it was House of Jobs approved, so you didn't need a pwned phone, and (c) it was available in time for the Presidential swearing-in.  What we DIDN'T know at the time was that it performed its video magic over Wi-Fi connections only

Or, to slightly paraphrase the Soup Nazi, "No 3G streaming video for you!"

Well, turns out there's a tweak to enable 3G vid-streaming in Ustream — and, irony of ironies, it DOES require a jailbroken iPhone with Cydia apps Mobile Substrate, OpenSSH, and VoIPover3G installed.  Got that?  Good!  Here goes nothing:

  1. SSH into your iPhone and go to the root directory “/”
  2. Navigate to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries
  3. With a text editor, open VoIPover3G.plist
  4. Look for:
  5. Filter = {Bundles = ("com.Fringland.Fring", "com.apple.AppStore", "com.audiofile.Interstate", "com.apple.MobileStore");};

    Change it to:

    Filter = {Bundles = ("com.Fringland.Fring",
    "com.apple.AppStore", "com.audiofile.Interstate",
    "com.apple.MobileStore", "tv.ustream.player");};

  6. Save the changes you just made and upload the file back to its location: /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries
  7. Now go to your springboard and delete the Ustream application. Reboot your iPhone and reinstall Ustream from the App Store.
  8. Done!
