iBlueNova (iBluetooth 2) Will Allow iPhone Users to Transfer Files Via Bluetooth

iBlueNova or iBluetooth 2

iBlueNova or iBluetooth 2 will be available on Cydia Store for the jailbroken iPhone very soon.

The iPhone OS 2.0 version was called iBluetooth and it was the first iPhone application that allowed users to transfer files from their iPhone to other Bluetooth devices. But due to trademark issues, the iPhone OS 3.x.x version has been renamed as iBlueNova.

The iPhone 3G comes with Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR (short for Enhanced Data Rate) wireless technology built-in, while iPhone 3GS comes with Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR built-in. But they only supports the Bluetooth Headset Profile, A2DP and Bluetooth Hands-free Profile 1.5.

So the most commonly requested application in the Bluetooth stack by iPhone users is the ability to transfer files to other bluetooth devices.

iBlueNova developed by MeDevil will enable jailbroken iPhone users to transfer files via Bluetooth to other Bluetooth devices. 

Folks at iClarified are reporting that the jailbreak app is ready for distribution but might take a few days before Saurik can include it in the Cydia Store.

Here are some of the changes and improvements that you can expect in iBlueNova:

  • Resolve the timeout sending a file with authentication enabled

  • Fixes an issue with the approval of the BT on 3G

  • Completing the integration of licenses

  • Fixed bug with opening files from iFile

  • Removed backgrounding native

You can check out the demo video of the iPhone app in action below:

We’ll let you know as soon as we have any further updates.
