  1. There is an AirDrop port for unsupported iDevices running iOS 7+ called "AirDrop Enabler 7.0+"
  2. I made that tweak/debian package and sent it to a user to test it on his iPhone 4 running iOS 7.0.3 and the result was the AirDrop wasn't usable, the iPhone 4 cannot detect other AirDrop-enabled iDevice, according to iOS console, AirDrop cannot be run.
  3. So why I tell this? Because it's possible that this user sent this port to someone else and then the port is repacked and uploaded to some MyRepoSpace cydia source. The port contains the iOS 7.0.3 files for AirDrop. (Illegal)
  4. Let me tell something, the story went bad. I had planned to release this very first AirDrop port for some unsupported devices, but I have to test it out first. I don't have iPhone 4 so I send the port to others to let them test. But all people want to be famous, they did release the port without my permissions. This caused people who discover the port install it onto their device, the problem came, they reported the uploader(s), the uploader(s) suggested to ask me instead. !! (WTH??)
  5. Some fact here, the only iDevices that can have AirDrop usable is the "iPad 3", else is NOT, never. AirDrop makes use of Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and AWDL. (Apple Wireless Direct Link, or Wi-Fi Direct, the AWDL requires the driver that's existed in the iOS kernel itself, without the driver, AirDrop WON'T WORK) For iPad 3, it is the only one device which passed that requirement. (iPad 3 has the driver for this)
  6. So what's the exact point for the explaination ?
  7. Just to clarify things, about AirDrop port history, it's for iPad 3 only, and for the experienced users.
  8. It's still not wise to create the legal AirDrop port and upload it to an ofiicial cydia repo, since it's not easy/permitted to include the copyright files by Apple into the cydia package. One could just upload this to the repo if he/she understood the story of this. But now, for me, I WILL NOT
  9. - Release the update or the fix for AirDrop port, there is no exact repo I can upload.
  10. - Respond to user about fixing AirDrop issue in iPad 3, except sending them this paste.
  11. - Plan any AirDrop port related stuffs.
