iPod touch Google Street View Is A Go!

November 25th, 2008 · No Comments · iPhone

Alright ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I have a very cool hack for you iPod touch 1G users! I have a hack for you guys that will enable Google Street View for you! Now I say iPod touch 1G because we do not have a jailbreak for iPod touch 2G users to share right now… 🙁 Anyways, this is a simple hack that will enable those pesky missing features.


All you have to do is:

*Retrieve the N45AP.plist file from /System/Library/CoreServices/

*Convert the .plist to a .xml file (to do this, go pay our friends at iAppCat a visit

*Add the following string to the N45AP:


put it below the part where it says


*save the file!

*Go back and pay our friends a visit again at and convert the xml file back into a binary.

*Now rename the old N45AP.plist file to N45AP.plist.old

*SSH the new modified N45AP.plist


*SSH back again (To fix some issues)

*Navigate to /Applications/

*Download the Settings-iPod.plist to your desktop

*Delete the Settings-iPhone.plist and the Settings-iPod.plist files still in the iPod touch.

*On your desktop, rename the Settings-iPod.plist to Settings-iPhone.plist


Now you are done. If you want to fix the “No Service” issue:

1) Install the following packages from Cydia:

Erica Utilities

2) Run these commands in MobileTerminal (named “Terminal” on SpringBoard/Home screen)



plutil -c xml1 /System/Library/CoreServices/

plutil -c xml1 /System/Library/CoreServices/

* SSH to /System/Library/CoreServices/,

* Copy and Paste SpringBoard.strings, and name it one SpringBoard-2.strings

*Open the original in any text editor.

*Hit Ctrl + F (Cmd + F for Mac) and search for: No Service
or you can look about 2/5 of the way down where it says:

<string>No Service</string>

*Replace the stuff in between <string></string> with what you want it to say.

If you want the “iPod” back, it should now read this:



Now you are done! There is only 1 small issue remaining. That is that the activation popup will still be there. Now this may look like a lot of work but it really isn’t. Well guys, that’s it for now!
