iOS 9 Live Photos Tweak For Older iOS 8 Devices

A new iOS 9 Live Photos tweak brings this great innovative exclusive feature like proactive, that breathes new life into static photography, to older iPhones. Live Photos feature works by shoehorning the picture in between video captured just prior and just after the picture is taken. The resulting effect is a “live” picture that moves on your display, lending context to the photo at hand.

A well known tweak developer, Elias Limneos, who has released tweaks like CallBar and BioProtect, just introduced PhotosLive - an excellent interpretation of Apple’s Live Photos for older jailbroken devices. It is very interesting how he managed to provoke this iPhone 6s feature to work on old iPhones.

New Tweak Brings iOS 9 Live Photos Feature To iOS 8 Devices



When you install PhotosLive tweak, you’ll need to open up the pop up box that first appears after reboot to download the license. Once you done, you can start using the tweak.

Before you do that, navigate to the Settings app to configure the PhotosLive’s preferences. Inside its preference panel, you’ll find a whole bulk of custom settings to configure the tweak to your personal liking. Here you will find options for toggling PhotosLive, enabling a Retina Flash-inspired front facing flash, and additional miscellaneous settings. You can also adjust the video capture duration of PhotosLive.

To use iOS 9 Live Photos tweak, launch the stock Camera app, and make sure that the PhotosLive toggle is enabled. Once it is, take a picture, and PhotosLive will automatically capture additional photos needed to provide you with an animated live images. Also there is another amazing tweak for your camera which is called CameraTweak 3 and you can install it right now to try.

PhotosLive tweak has many advantages. You can even save Live photos to the Lock screen wallpaper, and touch-and-hold to animate, similar to how you can do with the iPhone 6s. What is more PhotosLive photos will even sync in your library, and data is hardcoded in the JPEG photo itself (Apple’s version creates separate video files). You can even use PhotosLive with photo filters, and export photos as GIF animations for sharing.

It is worth to say here that there are few differences between PhotosLive tweak and Apple’s official Live Photos feature. For example, with Apple’s version, users can hear sound when playing back Live Photos because it’s truly a video. While Apple’s implementation uses actual video, Limneos is embedding additional JPEG frames inside of the original image.

You can grab PhotosLive jailbreak tweak for $1.99 on the BigBoss repo, but hurry up as the sale price is only for launch week. After that it will cost $2.99.
