---------------------------------------------------- INSTALLING -------------------------------------- --------------
Before installing, you'll need to remove (but backup) Circuitous, and RotationInhibitor.
Here's how you can do this:
Backup and then delete:
- /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/Circuitous.dylib
- /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/Circuitous.plist
- /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/RotationInhibitor.dylib
- /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/RotationInhibitor.plist

Now, install iOS 3 Multitasking with the usual command:
dpkg-deb -i iOS3MultitaskingDarlo770_1.0.deb

---------------------------------------------------- SETUP ----------------------------------------------------
By default, i've released this set-up for automatic backgrounding. Now.. Whited00r is set up so apps quit on minimise. you have 2 choices:
1) Full Automatic Mode - Apps background normally, no minimise button. You'll need to set your Backgrounder settings to automatic backgrounding (enableAtLaunch and persistent)
2) Manual mode - Apps terminate on home-button press.
To background, tap the minimise button. This mode must be enabled, to do this- change the BOOLEAN key 'ManualBackgroundingEnabled' to TRUE in /User/Library/Preferences/com.darlo770.multitasking.plist

Oh, and also, you can have the native lock-screen music controls back, as long as you have no Activator gestures assigned to double-tap, just set the double tap home button to iPod Controls in settings. And when at the lock-screen, they should work again

Now respring...


Fixed in this release:
- Transparent dock bug fixed (forgot to include a .png)
- Orientation Lock will now survive a respring EDIT: NEVERMIND. NO IT WON'T
- Track name should now update properly

---------------------------------------------------- Troubleshooting ----------------------------------------------------

Q) Apps run slow and lag
A) You're probably running Automatic Backgrounding and running low on RAM, consider using Manual backgrounding.

Q) Tapping music icon in music controls doesn't launch iPod
A) Not at the moment, code refused to work (even though it's worked before) for now, tapping this icon just starts MediaPlayer playing

Q) Current app icon doesn't appear in Multitasking tray
A) As in iOS 4, the icon of the app you are currently in, doesn't appear in the tray.

Q) Track name sometimes falls 1 track behind
A) I think this is fixed, but if anyone gets this, tell me.

Q) Questions about backgrounding behaviour
A) Multitasking still obeys Backgrounder's setup. So if apps are set to stay open on close, they will. Likewise, they will terminate if set to kill on close. The minimise icon DOES minimise the current app. But backgrounder's settings will take effect when you press the home button, or switch to another app in the dock.

Q) How to respring
A) Scroll to music controls, now scroll even further to the left (or right depending how you think) you'll see some text, while HOLDING the scroll area back, exit multitasking tray.
