Use Books.app As A MMS Reader

Before SwirlyMMS offcially starts supporting MMS reading function, now you can take use of the Books.app as the a temp MMS reader. And here’s the how-to:

1.install both Books.app and SwirlyMMS from Installer.

Make sure both work well. You’d better download at least one book and one piece of MMS to check if they can func as expected. If you can’t, then you have to manually create the regarding folders.

2.enter command line by either Term-v100 on your iphone or Putty on your compute. You know how to do it, do you?

3.run the following command one by one(case sensitive):

cd /var/root/Media/EBooks

ln -s /var/mobile/Media/MMSFiles MMS

4.done.

MMS Files in Books.appMMS Contents in Books.app

So, now you can see basically the whole point is to fool the Books.app by a fake ‘book link’ which actually is where the MMS files are saved. One of the good thing is, now i can read Chinese MMS while i can’t in MobileText.app. Also, i can delete the obsolete MMS files easily by the Books.app’s Delete function.

So, SwirlyMMS.app + Books.app = A Full MMS.app, not bad, huh 😉
