iBlueNova: Review

Finally, the wait is over, iBlueNova (earlier know as iBluetooth) is out on cydia. iBlueNova works like a charm, This time its interface is organized neatly if you compare it with its earlier version iBluetooth. I’m very impressed with iBluenova.

In this version, you can transfer almost everything that is on your iPhone including Music, Photos, Videos and Other System files. Another good thing that it lets you preview the files that you want to send, so be it audio, video or photo.

Got good data transfer speeds, around 35kbs it with my old nokia 6630.Also, received data on iPhone without any issues, all the files are stored on /private/var/mobile/Media/Downloads folder by default, you can access them via SSH or with the help of iPhoneBrowser. If you want, you can also change the location of received files. You can only send one file at a time.

Since Music Library is read-only, no received Music or Video will be stored on Music Library that means you cant access it with iPod app, whereas received photos are stored on Camera Roll. You can change it to Library from iBlueNova settings. You can also enable pin authentication, change the received file location from here.

Another thing that you can’t directly preview the received file there on iBlueNova, You can use mAdvlock to preview those files. Just got to the /private/var/mobile/Media/Downloads folder. You can only preview Photos and Music, Video will only work if its an iPhone compatible.

There are few bugs like:

I couldn’t pair few devices which requires a code to Bond for the first time before sending/receiving files, As soon as I enter the code it, I get a failure message. We also struggled to get the app working with my iPhone 2G. Since, Medevil has tweeted that there seems to be an issue with 2G compatibility. I think those few bugs should be fixed soon.th 2G compatibility. I think those few bugs should be fixed soon.

iBluenova is compatible with iPhone 2g(few issues), 3G, 3GS and iPod Touch 3G is experimental.

iBluenova comes with 15day trial after that you’ve to pay $5.99 to get the license, and it is available on cydia under iSpazio repo.

Was really hoping that this may give iPhone some other Bluetooth profiles such as Remote Sim (RSAP) Anyone know if this is planned or whether there are any other apps than do this?

Hi: I am trying to transfer e-books from my iphone to an ereader. When I open iBlueNova and look under “other files”, where do I find the e-books? Many thanks!

This app works PERFECTLY with my HP Photosmart A646 and my factory unlocked 3G 8GB! Great job guys!

N.B. I also downloaded “BT Stack”, via Rock, which is a portable user-space bluetooth stack, which may help with connectivity between devices. Not sure if it’s helping or not, but I’m not changing it because everything works….”if it ain’t broke….”

Why can’t I receive and send songs between iPhones?

Hasanineali June 21, 2010 at 12:05 am

i have ipod touch 2g 3.1.3 , ibluenova works perfectly for sending files but i’m unable to receive any kind of files each time receiving freezes on 0%, 6% or 8%. Plz help me i’m able to send files to nokia mobiles but unable to receive files. Does ibluenova only receive files from idevices

@Raman
I saw ur video and i tried it inspite of knowing that it wont work because this app dosent support iOS 4. I saw blackrain on ur iphone in ur video so i guess u wuld be runing iOS 3.x.x
With which it has no issues.

Pankaj Mehta December 8, 2010 at 1:00 pm

I have Apple Iphone 3G. i downloaded ibluetooth as well as ibluenova and cracked it also but it dose not work. When i start ibluetooth it shows screen and comes out and when i start ibluenova it is not connected with other mobiles. Please suggest anything is missing or what?
