Since Apple started to release the Dev versions of the iOS 5 to the developers most of the users expected that a Panoramic mode for the system camera App in the iOS 5 will make its debut with the official release of the iOS 5. Well, it didn’t happen, but it seems that code for the Panoramic mode was still lying their underneath in iOS – just waiting to be enabled and sure enough inevitable happened as the @chpwn – a famous iOS jailbreak developer found a way to enable it for the iPhone and iPod Touch users that have upgraded their iDevices to the latest iOS 5 release. However your iDevice must be jailbroken on iOS 5. After the jailbreak all you have to do is to visit Cydia store then search & install the newly released jailbreak app called Firebreak. After installing the Firebreak users should be able to see the newly added Panorama feature in the menu of the built-in iOS 5 camera app.
It seems that Apple intends to enable this feature later-on in a some future iOS 5 version when the feature is more polished. Personally, I think iPhone App store has already a great list of Apps that allows to capture Panoramic mode photos – and many of these apps are available for free. But if you still want to try this hidden un-polished Panoramic feature in iOS 5 then go ahead with the installation of the iOS 5 and then jailbreak it using one of the guides that recently published for jailbreaking iOS 5.0.1.
