Enable Panorama Camera Mode In iOS 5 With Firebreak (Jailbreak)

by Ahmed Omar on November 8, 2011

As promised, the popular iPhone developer chpwn released a tweak named Firebreak to enable panorama camera mode in iOS 5 camera app. The hack based on editing some files inside the System folders to get panorama features in iOS 5. Firebreak makes the process much easier for normal users.

You’ll surely need to jailbreak your device so follow our guide posted here for tethered jailbreak and here for semi tethered then open Cydia and let it update. Once done, search for “Firebreak” then download and install it.

Once installed you’ll be able to use the feature directly from your camera iOS app. Just as below and seen before:

What are you waiting for? Firebreak is available for free under BigBoss repository in Cydia.

    Couldn’t I use the iPhoneBrowser program to edit the file?
    Maybe someone could specify what the file’s name and location is, along with the necessary change(s) to enable panorama mode?
