AirBlue Sharing: Jailbreak Tweak Allows iPhone Users to Transfer Files With Any Device Via Bluetooth

AirBlue Sharing jailbreak app

iPhone comes with Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR technology but it only support the Bluetooth Headset Profile, A2DP and Bluetooth Hands-free Profile 1.5. But iPhone users still can’t transfer files between iOS devices or any other Bluetooth device, which is the most commonly requested application in the Bluetooth stack.

Eric Day – iOS hacker and developer has just released a new jailbreak tweak called AirBlue Sharing that allows jailbroken iOS device users to share files using Bluetooth.

Eric Day had released a jailbreak tweak called Siri0us that briefly brought Siri Dictation for non-iPhone 4S devices, but had to remove it from Cydia to licensing issues.

AirBlue Sharing includes the following features:

  1. Zero configuration
  2. Native Bluetooth pairing, do not have to re-pair your device when using iOS native Bluetooth 
  3. High speed Bluetooth transimision, up to 1.7 MB/s 
  4. Automatically shutdown Bluetooth when transmission done to save power
  5. Transfer files over WiFi connection, it’s possible to transfer a video file in a few seconds (iOS to iOS) 
  6. Automatically create a WiFi hotspot for transmission when no WiFi available (iOS to iOS, large file)
  7. Send from Notes/Photos/Videos /Music/Contacts/Voice Memos … 
  8. Send any file from applications support “Open in …”
  9. Import received files to Contacts/Photos
  10. Import received files to applications support “Open in …”
  11. Send/receive multiple files simultaneously 
  12. Sent/received notification sounds 
  13. Compatible with Mac OS X, Windows XP/Vista/7, Linux, Nokia, Android, Blackberry and other Bluetooth enabled phones 

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

AirBlue Sharing is available on Cydia for $4.99.

Though we had trouble sending files from an iPhone 4S to an iMac, we could send and receive files from an iPhone 4S to a Nokia phone and vice versa without any issue.

Let us know it goes in the comments.

  • Zoub

    waste. of. money.

  • jeremy

    i like it wish it didn’t cost so much. it works pretty well the only problem is in safari it replaces the open in ifile with open in bluetooth which is useless why the hell would you download something on one device and immediately send it to another.

    • neoaggelos

  • @DRMOH82

  • Mattie Catledge

    I cannot get the preloader work fine. Here is the problem. I wanna load external swf (one) of about 1.8 Mb. Also I want to resize it to fit the holder. This is what i`ve done (if you don`t mind I altered the code, but keep your copyright on). So I modified the code like this:1. There werw two layers with placeholder2 (deleted one of them). Was testing the movie in all ways and the duplicate layer was redundant.2. Deleted the row script with the _go button, and deleted the button, this for automatically loading the movie.3. Inserted _xscale and _yscale code strings (are more effective towards the resize.height etc).4. Modified the counter number to 1 instead of 4.

    The AirBlue app is a little confusing to set up (and you need to turn Apple’s bluetooth setting “OFF” in ‘Settings’… so that AirBlue can manage bluetooth). It needs some instructions in the description or somehwere. You have to go through the motions of sending to get the app ‘activated’ (what’s that?)… and to get your devices all ‘paired’ up, which took a couple tries. In my Android phone, my found bluetooth devices are listed as ‘paired, but not connected’ although the file transfer with AirBlue Sharing…works.

    AFTER getting all set up… 1) To send FROM my iPod Touch 4, I went to Photos app, tapped on a displayed photo to get the Send icon (square with arrow coming out), then chose bluetooth, chose my paired Android phone, and… then I got a notification to accept the file on the Android.
    2) To receive TO my iPod Touch 4, you have to -first- tap the iPod’s ‘status bar’… which brings a little paper airplane icon into it, then a banner pops up to ‘Tap to show transfers’… then I could go to my Android and send a file via bluetooth, selecting the iPod as destination… and a prompt to ‘Accept the file’ shows up on the iPod.

    However, the AirBlue Sharing app itself doesn’t make a lot of sense (to me)… I can tap the menu icon in the app (three horizontal bars in the upper left) and select ‘Home’… but drilling down into the Media folder doesn’t help much. In DCIM/100Apple, it only shows useless “IMG_####.JPG” names…. and at the moment I can’t find my other albums. So… there’s not much use, for me, for the app by itself… but the bluetooth transfer works.
    –The app/folder system needs to be more ‘user friendly’… show thumbnails … and bookmark the standard locations for photos (including albums), videos, and music… at least.

    P.S. While the AirBlue bluetooth connectivity is actually running, the AirBlue paper airplane and AirBlue bluetooth icons will show in the status bar and the Apple ‘Settings’ bluetooth control will be ‘Unavailable’. The AirBlue paper airplane will eventually timeout (in about a minute), but sometimes the AirBlue bluetooth stack doesn’t… you may need to reboot your iDevice.
