Push Notifications have been introduced by Apple with the launch of OS 3.0 and its not a biggie for those who are using their iPhones on contract, but the folks with unlocked iPhone have to do some manual settings in order to enable Push notifications.

Download this file first and then follow this guide step-by-step to successfully implement it:

Push Solution Test Steps

A. Get Legit Keychain Data:
*You Must Perform These Steps On A Properly Activated Device (iphone or ipod touch) with at least one working push app*

1.Unzip the downloaded zip file and copy the binary 'nimble' using SSH into /private/var/Keychains and set permission to 0755

2. Make sure the file "keychain-2.db" is in /private/var/Keychains and run nimble. You will see 4 files being created:
- youtube-cert.bin
- youtube-key.bin
- push-cert.bin
- push-key.bin

3. Copy these 4 files into the corresponding folder on your hactivated device.

B. Testing Push:
*You Must Perform These Steps On Your Hacktivated Device*

1.Unzip the downloaded zip file and copy the following files using SSH into /private/var/Keychains and set permission to 0755:
- inject
- nimble

2. Store in somewhere else the current "keychain-2.db" and run inject. A new keychain-2.db will be created

3. Uninstall the push app (i.e. beejive or similar) you intend to test on from your hacktivated device and reboot

4. Test youtube, reinstall the above push app and test.

Please note that notifications can be controlled from "settings" option.
