Live Photos wallpaper iOS 9 EnableLivePhotos

If you have an older device running iOS 9, it’s possible to create Live Photos if you’re willing to jailbreak your device. EnableLivePhotos is a recently released jailbreak tweak that not only lets you take Live Photos, but lets you display Live Photos on the Lock screen as well.

EnableLivePhotos is the best implementation of Live Photos that I’ve seen for non-iPhone 6s devices. Watch our video and see how it works.

Once you install EnableLivePhotos, you can begin using it immediately. There are no settings or options that are necessary to configure.

Launch the stock Camera app, and you’ll see a new Live Photos toggle button at the top of the screen while in Photo mode. Just like on the iPhone 6s, you can tap that toggle to enable or disable Live Photos on the fly.

To take a Live Photo, simply take a picture like your normally do. Live Photos will automatically record a few moments before, and a few moments after the actual snapshot is taken. It’ll then be able to play back the full recording, resulting in the “live” aspect of Live Photos.

To play back a Live Photo, open the Photos app, and tap and hold on a photo. The photo should begin to animate. You’ll also notice subtler animations as you swipe through a set of Live Photos.

What’s more, EnableLivePhotos lends you Live Photo access on the Lock screen wallpaper. If you tap the Share button, and select the Use as Wallpaper option, you’ll see a Live Photo button at the bottom of the screen. To view Live Photo-enabled wallpaper, simply tap and hold on the wallpaper while on the Lock screen.

EnableLivePhotos is an impressive recreation of Live Photos for older devices. It works almost exactly like Live Photos on the iPhone 6s. It’s certainly the best way to view and take Live Photos on a jailbroken iOS 9 device that I’ve seen thus far, and it’s free on the BigBoss repo.

What do you think?

  • How can I save LivePhotos? Or get the original 6S live wallpapers? Cuz they are cool

  • Ruben Dias

    Hmmmmm… Pretty cool, but there’s any tweak to give us the default live wallpapers of the iPhone 6S ?

    • sharp44MAG

      I am wondering this too, if anyone could shed some light on this that would be great!

    • Eduardo Barra

      already has the only function lack the wallpepar iPhone 6s

    • Nate McKelvie

      What I want to know is how to create a live photo as nice as the stock live wallpapers because when I take one they don’t look anything like the stock ones do

  • Eduardo Barra

    wallpaper iPhone 6s in fact the photo live can post here ?

  • Miguel Alcibar

    Great tweak , thanks for the info !

  • fiiiiine

    I have a 6s and I’d like to see a tweak that auto-animates the live photo every time you wake your phone. Not all of us use Touch ID to get into our phone (i.e. bypassing the lock screen).

    Doesn’t seem to work on my 5

    • Richard

      ‘Live Photos Enabler’ works fine on my 5. Repo source in screenshot

      • zmz

        thank you sir

      • Marek Niessner

        not working for my 5S, when I want to take photo it freeze.

      • Nullingsworth

        in general it almost works on Iphone 5s! Sometimes view freezes, think when smth bright appears in a view – need to switch to video mode and back.

  • Marek Niessner

    It is not working for me, don`t know why? Anyone else?

  • Mohamed Ibrahem

    Not working on my 5s any one else ?????

    • Marek Niessner

      Same to me

    • Matheus Lisboa

      Not working on my 5s

    • edi93

      yes me too

    • Julio M.

      Same here….

    • John Oliveira

      use evil goldfish repo, this works for me on iPhone 5s!!!

  • redjazon

    This kinda sucks coz i paid for PhotosLive and now this comes out for free.
    Lol. Oh welll

    • Lucus Bendzsa

      Email the dev and tell him he is a moron. You may get your money back. Laugh Out Loud

    • I was thinking the same, however this tweak is for devices running iOS 9 and PhotosLive has more settings and options for iOS 8 devices.

      • Lucus Bendzsa

        The PhotosLive dev had to manually make all the surf work. On iOS 9 the dev simply turned on the feature and linked it to a long press which probably took 5 minutes instead of days the other dev spent.

    • And what lesson did we learn today?

      • rockdude094

        Pirate apps ?

  • Radu

    Can someone report if the pictures can be exported and watched on a mac in the photos app?

  • Silly Apple we don’t need to upgrade our phones for Live photos.

    • therealjjohnson

      Or Force touch.

  • jay

    Works pretty good for me that’s so much

  • Loyo Media

    Can we also port the iphone 6s wallpapers to iphone 6? So we can use Apple live wallpapers.

  • Mark Deen

    Had to restore iphone 6 after using this tweak. The tweak worked fine at first. I took a live photo and set it to my lockscreen then it crashed. I removed the tweak and was still stuck in safe mode. I looked in my photos and the live photo i took was still there, and it will not let me delete it. Not sure if that has anything to do with it being stuck in safe mode. Just wanted to warn others to what happened to me. Restoring and rejailbreaking now.

  • Paul Edmund

    Nothing happens on 5S. The photo says its live, but it never animates.

  • port87

    doesnt work on my 5s

  • karlapudi sondeep

    hello this tweak will work in iphone 4s?????

    • David

      I tested this on IOS 9.0.1 on a 5s, 5c, iPad 2. Couldn’t get it to work on any of them. Ideas?

    • Senthil

      Only works with front camera. Rear camera freezes upon launch.

  • RobDigital413

    This tweak is NO WHERE close to Photoslive…… No front “Retina Flash” no sharing Live Photos between devices with the tweak and choppy animation

  • RobDigital413

    Please update Photoslive for iOS 9……..please

  • David

    I tested this on IOS 9.0.1 on a 5s, 5c, iPad 2. Couldn’t get it to work on any of them. Ideas?

  • edi93
