One of the most fun features added to the iPhone 5s is the Camera app’s “slo-mo” recording mode, which allows users to record video at 120 frames per second (fps) and 720p. Now, owners of Apple’s older iDevices can configure a similar recording feature on their iPhone or iPad thanks to a jailbreak tweak called Slo-mo Mod.
Once downloaded and installed, Slo-mo Mod brings slo-mo video recording to iOS 7-powered iDevices, while also allowing iPhone 5s users to manually alter the quality of slo-mo video recordings. You can enable and configure the jailbreak tweak in a dedicated preferences pane which is added to the Settings app, and here, users can input a value for the frame rate of slo-mo video.
Compatible frame rates depend on individual iDevices, however. The iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPad 2, and iPad 3 don’t support 60 fps recording, and the frame rate for these devices must be limited to 30 fps. The iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, fifth-generation iPod touch, iPad 4, iPad Air, and both iPad mini tablets appear to support 60 fps recording, but not 120 fps (which is reserved for the iPhone 5s).
If you input a frame rate value that’s incompatible with your iDevice, you’ll find that the Camera app will crash. Altering the frame rate is as simple as inputting new values in the aforementioned preferences pane.
For iPhone 5s users, Slo-mo Mod makes it possible to manually alter the frame rate of recorded video, which is a useful feature. Best of all, Slo-mo Mod can be downloaded free of charge, and so iDevice users may experiment with this jailbreak tweak without having to pay for it.
Potential users should note that in order for Slo-mo Mod to work on a non-iPhone 5s device, you’ll need to have downloaded a further package called Burst Mode (pictured below). This, too, is available free of charge in the Cydia Store, yet it isn’t bundled with the Slo-mo Mod jailbreak tweak.
As mentioned, Slo-mo Mod can be downloaded in the Cydia Store free of charge.
