How To: Take Panoramic Photos On Your iPhone Without A Jailbreak
One day after we reported Apple is hiding a nearly complete panorama feature in iOS 5’s Camera app, comes this important follow-up. You may begin using this feature today and without a jailbreak, according to directions first published by Funky Monkey Space. In order to "activate" Apple's panorama feature, follow these steps. First, download and install the free iBackupBot either on your Mac or PC. Next, backup your iPhone/iPod touch in iTunes and then open iBackupBot and find the backup. Then, load that backup. From there, go Library/Preferences/com.apple.mobileslideshow.plist and open the file. (if your software isn’t registered you’ll have to press cancel and then it will open) [caption id="attachment_244366" align="aligncenter" width="790" caption="Panorama"][/caption] Next, add in the following code: <key>EnableFirebreak</key><string>YES</string> [caption id="attachment_244368" align="aligncenter" width="639" caption="Add This Code"][/caption] Finally, save your modifications and then restore your iPhone from the backup you just updated using iBackupbot. From now on, you’ll be able to use the Camera app to take panoramic photos using your iPhone and iOS 5. We thanks Funky Monkey Space for providing us with this solution. What do you think? Leave your comments below. Keep in mind: If you are using iCloud to automatically backup your iDevice, you will need to change the backup settings within iTunes, which is located on the Summary page for your iDevice when it is plugged into your computer. For this time only, select Back up to this computer as your backup solution.
