Run iMovie on your iPad 1
iMovie is only available on the iPad 2 (and iPhone 4, iTouch 4) because of the performance requirement (512MB RAM, in other words, since that’s the only difference between the iPad 1 and iPhone 4. The more likely scenario is that Apple want to give you another reason to upgrade, as well as not get bad reviews on the app because it runs slower on the iPad 1. However, there is a way to get around the lockout and run iMovie on your iPad 1. Maciverse shows you how in this guide, and it’s a fairly simple process that doesn’t require jailbreaking. You do have to install a configuration tool though, but it’s official Apple software. I didn’t try it on mine as I will be getting an iPad 2 when it comes out here, but if that hadn’t been the case I’d have been all over this.
