Take a Photo While Recording Video On Your iPod Touch 5G [Jailbreak Tweak]

iPhone 5 comes with an 8-megapixel camera same as the iPhone 4S, but it comes with some new features and  improvements.

One of features is the ability to take still photos while you’re video recording.

Unfortunately, this feature is not available on the 5th generation iPod touch. But a new jailbreak tweak on Cydia unlocks this feature on iPod touch 5G.

After installing the jailbreak tweak called Still Capture Enabler from Cydia, you will see the camera icon while recording a video, which can be tapped to take the still photo.

So you will no longer miss those small moments when you’re capturing a big one using your iPod touch.

Still Capture Enabler is available on Cydia for free, so grab it and let us know how it goes in the comments.

      Not yet, but we hear the developer is working on making this tweak compatible with iPhone 4S. We’ll let you know when it is available for iPhone 4S.

        It has been updated to work on the 3GS, 4, 4S, and various iPods. Great, great tweak.
