Panorama Feature in iOS 5@conradev discovered that there is a hidden feature in iOS 5 that let’s you take panorama pictures. Luckily, it is easy to enable this feature on your iOS device. Of course you need a jailbroken device.

If you can wait until tomorrow, @chpwn already submitted “Firebreak” to Cydia that enables the panorama feature.

All of you who want the panorama feature on your iOS device right now, follow the instructions after the break:
