Leave it To Jailbreakers – NoMute for iPad Brings the Orientation Lock Button Back

NoMute jailbreak app for iPad

I’ve recently posted about the iOS 4.2 change of the Orientation Lock hardware button on the iPad into a (redundant and half-assed) mute switch, and how many users are not happy at all with the change.

Well, as so often happens, the jailbreak community has provided a solution, and one that Apple could easily have provided themselves. There’s a new app in Cydia (the jailbreak app store) called NoMute for iPad. It changes the function of the hardware button back to its former one as a screen lock. Great stuff. If I was still jailbroken I would be installing NoMute right away.

NoMute is a free (jailbreak) app and is published via the BigBoss repo.
