    Hello,

    So I am in the music section of the iPhone, in the "Albums" vertical list and what I usually do when I have multiple albums of the same artist/group is changing the "Sort album" in the "Sort" tab of the album like this: "Rammstein 1", "Rammstein 2", "Rammstein 3"... etc so all the Rammstein albums are in "R" in order of release instead of one being in "H" for Herzeleid, one in "S" for Sehnsucht, etc. Like this:

    I have many albums with many artist/group arranged like this like Star Wars:

    Now it seems it doesn't work anymore. I have the album Black Holes and Revelations from Muse and I changed the "Sort album" for "Muse 1" but in my iPhone it's still in B:

    I tried deleting and re-adding it, I tried changing the "Sort album" to "aaaaa", I tried rebooting the iPhone and I tried many other things but nothing works. I checked with other albums and every field in the "Infos" tab and in the "Sort" tab is similar.
    Note that:
    - The order is correct in iTunes (album is in "M")
    - The order is correct in coverflow in the iPhone (but I don't use that much)
    - This is the first album I bought from iTunes (I was previously using the CDs)
    - This is the first album I synced after updating to the last firmware version

    So what's wrong?

    Thanks

    UPDATED could be the keyword here. Try a fresh restore to the new firmware. I used to have a prob were i would get CD's with no artwork or artwork from other albums (Correct artwork in iTunes), simply did clean restore and it fixed it. Hope it helps. If not, try to re sync the entire music library into your phone.

    I got the other albums from the same group (I only had one) and arranged them the same way and now it works. Maybe it doesn't work when there's only one.
