[B][I]WARNING: I am not responsible if you ruin your device
iPhone 3GS/4 Users use iFaith to save your SHSH blobs now!
iPhone 4S users be careful![/I][/B]
You WILL need a jailbroken device
This has only been tested on iOS 5.0.x
You WILL need EDGE activated
The option in messages will always say OFF, if you switch it ON once you leave the page it will revert to OFF however it will still work: [I]This means you can not turn it on and off via settings[/I]
For this reason back up the files I am going to ask you to modify!
iFile (or an iphone file browser)
Alright lets get started
Step one - open up your iphone file browser
Set two - Navigate to System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Conference.framework
Step three - back up the messages.plist file to your computer or email or something
Step four - look for the string that says "ALLOW_GROUP_MESSANGING" and change it to "Group MMS" then save the file
Step five - Go to Var/Mobile/System/Library
Step six - make a backup of com.apple.carrier.plist
Step seven - open up that file and add the following/edit the strings EXACTLY as shown
Step eight - Go to Var/Mobile/System/Library
Step nine - make a backup of com.apple.mms.override.plist
Step ten - Change the string under "GroupMode enabled from "false" to "true"
Step eleven - reboot
Step twelve - turn on Group MMS in Settings - Messages (it will go back off after you leave this page)
Step thirteen - enjoy group messaging
omg i did everything now my phone wont send picture msgs wtf?
Reapply the MMS fix!
It is very simple
lol i had to figure it out myself, but i got it to work and now group messaging works
thanks so much!
Glad it worked for you!
I did not have the MMS issues the first time but after helping my friends out it appears the MMS fix must be reapplied after editing the carrier plist.
i didnt understand the MMS fix from what you provided, would myMMS still be the same if i just did the tmobile fix(seen it on youtube)
it feels my pics are sending slow though thats why i asked if its the same thing
cause i want my pics to send like it did before
They send out the same, the fix on youtube may not work
I would suggest my method, it is tricky to understand but works wonders
ok ill do it, it wont delete my group messaging though right?
Not at all!
do you know any reason why my iphone can never be found when i use ifunbox or copytrans manager or even itunes, if i get lucky it does
No quite sure, is afc2add installed in cydoa?
yea it is.
this is so frustrating
Open iFunbox and try unplugging and repluging you phone (this works for me usually)
If not I will give you a method to contact me (via a private message) and I will fix it there!
yea sent u a msg, it didnt work
Hi there! I know this is an old thread but i could really use some help. I recently switched to an iPhone 3Gs. Sadly my friends all group MMS, i do not even have the option on my phone, and am not receiving any messages that are sent to me through that system, even though i have MMS working (slowly but working). My Phone is both jailbroken and unlocked. I went to attempt your fix through IFunBox but got stuck there =/ im not exactly computer savy, and cant figure out where to go to begin step one =/ Please help me!
