    HDR stands for high dynamic range which'll three images, each with a different light setting. Then it'll combine each of the best parts of the three images to create a new photo.

    You'll first need to be jailbroken. You can learn how to jailbreak your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad running iOS 6 here.

    Navigate to:
    Locate the following section:
    Code:
    in that section, add:
    Code:
    underneath:
    Code:
    Now, navigate to and open: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/*AP.plist
    After
    Code:
    Add
    Code:
    Respring afterwards to see the results.

    *Each device model has a different internal code.
    iPod touch 4th generation - N81
    iPhone 3GS - N88
    iPad 2nd generation - K93, K94, K95
    iPad 3rd generation - J1, J2
    iPad 4th generation - P101, P102, P103
    iPad mini - P105, P106, P107

    **Each device has a different megapixel camera.
    iPod touch 4th generation - 0.7 MP
    iPhone 3GS - 3 MP

    Interesting... I remember when something like this originally came around for the 4th generation iPod Touch, it enabled a HDR button, but trying to take a picture would just make it crash. It's good to see that this is working better.

    However, I must say that your "before and after" comparison is unfortunate. The normal photo looks good, while the HDR photo looks unbalanced and overexposed.

    Of course. You can disable it by doing the opposite though.

    Wow I spent 3 months on developing HDR for the 3GS when iOS 4.1 came out... I had no success, it's amazing that it's possible in iOS 6!

    Edit: Ok I can't get it to work on my ipt4, it shows up in the camera app and says it's on, it even takes 2 pictures but they look identical, neither says HDR on them either?

    Sorry, that would be illegal. Are you having trouble editing it? If so, please explain where you're stuck.
