    It seems that Apple has been holding out on us: the camera app has a built-in panorama option that was left disabled in iOS 5. Developer and hacker @conradev has figured out how to enable the feature:

    So, I found out how to enable Panorama is the iOS Camera app. Set the key 'EnableFirebreak' to YES in com.apple.mobileslideshow.plist

    For those not interested in hacking around in their own .plists, fellow developer chpwn has submitted a tweak called Firebreak to Cydia that will enable the feature; it should be available within 24 hours.

    Can the plist be edited in an iPhone 4s backup and restored to the phone?

    Not sure, but even if yes I'd imagine it would be much easier to do on the device.

    That would be true except for the fact that the 4s has not been jailbroken yet

    Sorry, when I see 4s I always think people means "4's" as in "an iPhone four's backup." I think of the new phone when the s is capitalized: 4S. It's been confusing when dealing with jailbreak issues.

    agreed with the 4S confusion

    anyways, surely people have seen this. looks a little risky to me

    Yep, I mentioned that in the first post. Of course this thread is pre-iOS 6; a lot of users now have Panoramic mode built in to the default camera app anyway.

    Editing a plist is pretty simple as well. Nice little tweak.
