Sources are reporting that a new Cydia app is capable of adding the long missed Bluetooth feature in the iPhone. A video demonstration of the tool soon making its way on the iSpazio repository shows successful Bluetooth file transfers between an iPhone and an iMac, as well as data exchange between a Sony Ericsson and the Apple handset.
The video reveals that the Cydia app is functional and ready to distribute. However, iSpazio mentions that the tool should not be credited to MeDevil, although the video about the iBluetooth Project is the first of its kind. Apparently, Medevil stole the work of the iBluetooth team. “He stole all the hard work of the team and launched the final version as his own,” reads a post on the respective site. iPhone owners anxiously awaiting for the tool to be released are advised to wait until the full and final version of the app is released by the actual development team behind the software – the iBluetooth team. Whatever you do is totally up to you, but keep in mind that you will need a jailbroken handset to run the app.
Last week, word on the web was that iPhone users should expect Apple to release a new firmware update for the iPhone OS soon. Sources familiar with Apple's plans said that the upcoming release (firmware 2.2.1) would include bug fixes, while a major (2.3) upgrade would bring new standards to the iPhone OS, including Bluetooth functionality.
It would be sad (for the developers) to see that, days after releasing the world's first working Bluetooth solution for iPhone, Apple has given Bluetooth the green light on iPhone. Whatever the scenario, the new app will be hosted in Cydia through the iSpazio Repository as soon as it is complete, the source says.
