Firebreak: An Easier Way to Enable Panorama Camera Mode in iOS 5

Not five minutes after we posted the plist hack method for enabling panorama mode in iOS 5, the promised jailbreak tweak that does the same thing hit Cydia.

The tweak is titled ‘Firebreak’ in reference to the plist value, and it’s much simpler to use than editing a plist value via iFile.

If you want to use iOS 5’s hidden panoramic camera, then this is the definitive way to enable it…


Firebreak is a free jailbreak tweak available in Cydia’s BigBoss repo. It does require a jailbroken iOS 5 device with a built in gyroscope (iPhone 4, iPad 2, etc.).
