iPhone Firmware 1.1.1: Multi-Page SpringBoard Hack

iPhone Hacked 1.1.1

New developments on the iPhone hacking front seems to be happening in a matter of minutes, just as I published the article on how iPhone hacker asap18 had managed to port several unauthorized third-party iPhone applications to firmware 1.1.1, DistortedLoop, one of the readers @ iPhone Hacks was quick to point out in the comments that the iPhone hacking community had figured out an ingenious paging feature should remove the 15 icon limitation that I had reported.

I had mentioned in my earlier article that "iPhone hacker asap18 who was also attributed to the success of jailbreaking the iPhone has managed to port several unauthorized third-party iPhone applications to firmware 1.1.1. Apparently so far only 15 icons can be added this way as the last spot seems to be reserved for iTunes." Read iPhone Hacks for the full article:
Several Third-Party iPhone Hacks and Apps ported to iPhone 1.1.1 and working fine.

iPhone Dev Team’s Nicholas "Drudge" Penree, NerveGas and Pumpkin have just released a patch which adds the ability to scroll through SpringBoard pages the same way you can in Mobile Safari to eliminate the 15 icon restriction (16th was apparently reserver for iTunes) that was reported earlier which means that unlimited number of unauthorized third-party iPhone applications can be installed on your hacked iPhone.

The paging dots that can be seen at the bottom of the SpringBoard (home screen) in the screenshots below can be used to scroll through SpringBoard pages the same way you can in Mobile Safari thus introducing another cool way to scroll through the long list of unauthorized iPhone applications which is critical due to the 16 application limit on the home screen.
