Enable the Panorama Option on iOS 5 without Jailbkreak

With iOS5 it's possible to take panoramic photos. This feature is native but hidden.
To enable it you have to edit the file Library/Preferences/com.apple.mobileslideshow.plist in the mobile account.

It's easy to enable it with a jailbroken iDevice but how to enable it on iPhone4S or iPad2 ?
But it's possible and very easy.

  • Make a backup of your iPhone with iTunes (right click on your iDevice).
  • Download and Install iBackupBot (click here).
  • Launch it… it will analyze your backups.
  • Select the file com.apple.mobileslideshow.plist and edit it.
