Does iBluenova/ iBluetooth works on iOS4 ?

Apple iPhone 4 has received a terrific response so much so that deilvery dates have shifted from 24th June to July 2nd, infact AT&T has stopped taking any pre-orders for now. We all have seen the innovations brought into iPhone 4 reigning from its design to features like FaceTime and Retina Display. However, as expected there were a few disappointments. No bluetooth transfer for photos, music or any other files.

That issue had been resolved by MeDevil the developer of iBluetooth now popularly known as iBluenova. He introduced it successfully on OS 2.x and then on iphone firmware 3.x as well. However, he hasn’t mentioned anything regarding iBluenova’s support for iOS4 or iPhone 4. His site is under maintainance and there aren’t any updates of iBluenova on twitter as well. One more strange fact is that there was no mention of iBluenova during the jailbreak of iOS4 beta.

So does it mean that iOS4 won’t have iBluenova? I guess we’ll get an answer to that soon and keep you posted. :)

i’ve already tried the “iBluenova” on my iphone 3g ios4, it doesn’t work, it’s takes long times to switch it on and no bluetooth icon show on status bar, doesn’t connect with any others device, maybe i will downgrade to firmware below ios4!

Dave August 22, 2010 at 1:42 am

The last time ANYONE has heard from MeDevil was a tweet last FEBRUARY…

MeDevil — has left the building — !!!!

Well that’s just great. What about the thousands of people still paying for this app and it doesn’t even work on os4. MeDevil needs to fix this app or refund a lot of people that have recently purchased this app. Yes it is the main reason I jailbroke my phone unlike some I can downgrade to 3.1.3 but others have os4 out of the box and cat downgrade. So what for them do they get there money back or is the app he made it rich off of going to get upgraded to work with os4.

Jr125 September 7, 2010 at 2:54 am

This is so sad. I too recently paid for it and used it for my Pogo printer. I am now going to dispute the charge and get my $ money back. I encourage all others to do the same until this joker shows up again and fixes his sloppy program.

Slayerdog October 13, 2010 at 4:55 am

Well for starters medevil is under no obligation to make his app work with os4.x. That is why it has a 15 day trial period before you buy it. Not his fault if you buy before you try( dumb asses). MeDevil might fix this issue but in no way has to

Metalhead76446 October 14, 2010 at 8:25 am

No shit Slayerdog is there really a try before you buy. Shut the Fu** up idiot I purchased it 2 years ago when I was still on 3.0

Ron885 October 15, 2010 at 3:55 am

Metalhead76446 does it still work on 3.0? then you got what you paid for. Why do you expect him to put more of his time into this for free? so annoying ungrateful brats like you stop crying? yeah. good luck.

Metalhead76446 October 15, 2010 at 4:29 am

And the idiots keep coming lmfao. Hey Ron STFU I’m not crying and no it’s not free he’s makin $20 a person off of it that buys it. I can easily downgrade no big deal to me. But there are tons of people out there that accidentally upgraded and didn’t get to save shsh on file and can’t downgrade.

seyaad October 28, 2010 at 10:21 pm

people who support medevill bear in mind that he sell his app for 6dollar and itis his resposibility to update it as he do before .at that time he did not mention that he will ,not update as he done from ibluetooth to ibluenova.

selena November 2, 2010 at 7:51 am

I tried it this morning on my iPhone 4. It doesnt work.

jack November 4, 2010 at 2:09 pm

i installed ibluenova on my iphone 3g having ios 4.0.1. the phone is not showing bluetooth logo
and not connecting to any other phones so should i down grade the ios or is there any other
solution for that

Metalhead76446 November 5, 2010 at 4:15 am

If your able to downgrade then do it. There’s no other way around it. Ibluenova has not been updated and from the looks of it never will be. So to have a true Bluetooth on your I stay at 3.1.3 or lower. Or pray apple will eventually give you the function. If not get rid of the phone and get a cheap $30 phone that has Bluetooth. It’s just terrible to have a $600 or more phone and can’t even have a simple function such as Bluetooth. Come on apple even cheap ass phones have Bluetooth and flash

STG December 14, 2010 at 9:07 pm

Ankit Agrawal January 13, 2011 at 5:07 am

ibluenova is not working on my 3gs iOs 4.0.1. It takes a lot of time to open & then there is no sign of bluetooth. Also i cannot connect to other devices..
Its all upto you McDevil. Fix it…

Dave January 13, 2011 at 5:30 am

iBlueNova has NEVER and does NOT work with any version 4 iOS firmware – only sometimes will it work with version 3.1.3. Like “Elvis” the developer MeDevil “has left the building” !!!! NO-ONE has heard from him since last February 2010. Its over folks :-(

Cobrang_kabayo February 16, 2011 at 6:12 pm

Medevil is Dead!!!!! thats why is not working on ios 4.xxxx!!!!!

PeteYou February 23, 2011 at 10:59 am

Drbukkake March 10, 2011 at 1:13 am

rafsun March 13, 2011 at 8:09 pm

Medivil has been hired by Apple for his brilliant work in ibluetooth..so oviusly theres no more chance of gettin any more hacks from him.

DrBukkake March 13, 2011 at 9:48 pm

Alwin April 1, 2011 at 10:53 pm

Please let me know when proper solution for 4.2.1 will be released….!!!

MrElectrifyer April 12, 2011 at 7:39 am

It opens up and turns on successfully in my iPhone 3GS 32GB running iOS 4.1, but I keep experiencing the following when I attempt sending the specified file type:

Photos: When I just tap on the “Pictures” option, under the file Manager, iBlueNova crashes
Music: When I tap a music file file from any of my playlists, iBlueNova crashes
Video: Same issue with Photos
Other Files: I’m able to select any other file but can’t detect any of my bluetooth devices, including my laptop; which on the contrary, detects it easily :|

Also noticed that under the settings, the address is different from what my Laptop was discovering the iPhone as. Oh well, guess he gave up on the project and started working for apple after experiencing piracy :P
