Enable ‘Panorama Mode’ on a Non-Jailbroken iPhone Running iOS 5

iOS hackers Conrad and Chpwn tweeted about the hidden panorama setting in iOS5 discovered.

While you can enable it easily by using the jailbreak, a Cydia package called “Firebreak” that will do all the work for you and enables this feature, but unfortunately you need a tethered or semitethered jailbreak for that.

For those who don’t jailbreak, Funky Space Monkey posted steps to enable the mode.

  1. “Download iBackupBot from the official website. ( Mac and Windows )
  2. Plugin your iPhone and back it up via iTunes
  3. Open iBackupBot and find the backup that you just made via iTunes. Select and load it.
  4. Find Library/Preferences/com.apple.mobileslideshow.plist

  5. Now you need to add a key to this .plist file. Open the file ( on mac, it just works *wink, wink* ) and near the bottom, add a key ( enableFirebreak ) and a string ( YES )

  6. Save your modifications, and right from iBackupBot restore your iPhone with the modified iTunes backup,” explains Funky Space Monkey


  7. That’s it. Open your camera app, tap on options and there it is.
