    Touch won't turn more than twice; this feature is perfect for bedtime browsing, no need to disable auto rotate.

    Why would you want to disable that feature. Just be careful and don't turn the iPod.

    Look for it in a future firmware update.

    It's been done with the 4g Nano (New Settings Option) recently, so it may be implemented on the iPhone/Touch for Landscape and Coverflow.

    Portrait lock

    Double click the Home button, slide all the way to the left and select the Portrait Orientation lock icon...my 3 year old daughter did this & it took me 2 days to figure out how to undo it.

    Hes not gonna want this on a 2g. Its disabled for a reason. Multitasking will not work right on 128mb of ram.

    Get latest firm ware, Jailbreak. Go in cydia, get sbsettings. Actually if you search "Rotation Inhibitor" I think it should install sbsettings and the toggle you want or just try getting sbsettings first and then the toggle :/. I would recommend getting "apple congruency" theme.
    "sbsettings" "Rotation Inhibitor" "apple congruency"

    Now slide your figure across the top, hit more, and you can figure it out from there. Now you can free your memory, turn wifi/bt on/off, change your briteness, all from the status bar. If you didn't know.
