Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to lock the orientation of your iPhone by flipping the mute switch, just like you can do with an iPad? Well, developer Nicolas Montvernay has made this possible with his simple Cydia tweak called LSCameraExtender. The jailbreak tweak allows you to switch between mute and rotation lock functions for the iPhone’s little silence button on the side.
LSCameraExtender also adds a mute or orientation lock button to the lock screen in the place of the current camera button that appears after a double tapping of the home button. LSCameraExtender is $0.99 on the BigBoss repo in Cydia. Check out the video above by Jeff Benjamin of iDownloadBlog for a quick tour of how it works.
