HOW TO: Enable FaceTime On The iPad Running iOS 4.2.1 [video]

Here’s a nice little ‘end of the weekend’ project for you guys: enable FaceTime on your iPad. The hack installs the iPod touch 4 FaceTime application on the iPad, with a full-screen, optimized user interface. Although the iPad user will not be shown due to the lack of a camera, the audio still works and the mute button is present, too.

NOTE: do it at your own risk. We are not responsible for your screw-ups

Things needed:

  • Conference.framework
  • IMCore.framework
  • ConferenceRegistrationSettings.bundle
  • AVFoundation.framework
