Cydia: “CameraButtons” Lets You Take Pictures With iPhone Volume Buttons! [VIDEO]

This one is currently my favorite Cydia tweak and its called “CameraButtons”. Once installed, it lets you to take photos and shoot videos with your iPhone’s volume keys, something I’ve always missed in my iPhone 4. CamerButtons has no springboard icon, instead a menu with handful of options is added to the iPhone’s native settings. The tweak gives you complete touch-free control of your iOS camera app. You can easily configure the volume up button, volume down button, and shake action to your desired function from the settings menu.
