    3G 8gb models didn't get multitasking in 4.0, so you won't get the multitasking dock so you don't get the orientation lock. But if you jailbroke and enabled multitasking, you should be able to do it.

    When I have my ipod in landscape, and I enable the orientation lock, it switches to being locked in portrait, when the original position was landscape. Yes I have the sn0wbreeze jb and multitasking enable.

    Oh.. actually I just tried it and yea, it can only lock in portrait. Also, I just noticed that when you enable orientation lock, it says 'Portrait Orientation Lock' so I guess it's only for portrait mode.

    the apple multitasking is sad, dont use it. Seriously, consider multifl0w or proswitcher.

    Don't get me wrong, those are amazing add-ons. I just like the accessibility that comes with the multitasker, and with the "Remove Recents" add-on from Cydia, I find it awesome.

    When watching YouTube on your side? Looking at landscape photos? Landscape web-browsing?
