[HOW-TO] - Enable Multi-touch Gestures on iPad without jailbreaking

We can find some guide on the Internet that show how to enable multi-touch gestures on iPad, but all of them request your iPad is jailbreaked, or need you own a Mac computer with XCode installed.
Now with iBackupBot, we can easily enable multi-touch gestures on iPad without jailbreaking:

What you need:
  1. 1. A PC computer with Windows XP/Vista/7 system, iTunes 10.2.1 installed.
  2. 2. An iPad or iPad 2 with iOS 4.3 or 4.3.1.
  3. 3. iBackupBot iTunes Backup Manager.
Then follow these steps:
  1. 1. Run iTunes, connect your iPad to computer, right click your iPad name in left window of iTunes and select Back Up.
  2. 2. After the backup process done, exit iTunes, run iBackupBot, select the newest backup of your iPad in left window of iBackupBot.
  3. 3. Double click Library/Preferences/ in right window of iBackupBot, it will pop up a plist editor window.

  6. gestures1-2011-04-9-23-59.jpg
  7. 5. Click the Disk button to save changes then close the plist editor window. Notice: When saving changes, the program will re-sort the contents of plist file by key, so the 2 lines you just added may been moved to other place, you can press CTRL+F and enter SBUseSystemGestures to find it.
  8. 6. Press CTRL+T, the program will prompt “Do you really want restore this backup to your device?”, just click Yes button.
  9. 7. After the restore process done, your iPad will restart automatically, then you can enjoy the multi-touch gestures feature.
BTW: this method will not show the multi-touch gestures switch in option window of iPad, so if you want disable multi-touch gestures feature, you can find and delete the two line that you added in Library/Preferences/ then restore to iPad using iBackupBot.
