    Yay, an orientation lock application.
    Works great ;-)

    Has anyone else tried this?

    Works perfectly on a Veer with 2.2.4. Will try on a Pre2 this evening.
    Thanks for this great tweak. Accelerometer is the most useless feature of Smartphones and forbids things like reading while in bed and so... My wife is very confused by this and often just holds her phone upside down. I hope that helps a bit.

    Will you release that in precentral feeds or something like that?

    works perfect with Pre3 and WebOS 2.2.0. After a restart the Accelerometer switch is always active. So you have to deactivate it after every device restart.

    I just installed it on my EU Pre3 2.2.4, and it works wonderfully.

    It's not a patch, but rather a stand alone program with a toggle switch to turn the accelerometer on and off.

    this should definately become a patch whcih is triggered / controlled by tweaks. nevertheless, great work!

    I agree ... this should be made into a top-bar drop-down trigger or something...

    How can you put it in the menu when the menu dissapers in landscape mode?

    It should be possible to patchify it by inserting the jsjsjs $into$ $the$ $always$-$running$ $phone$ $app$ $and$ $adding$ $it$ $to$ $tweaks$ $or$ $preferably$ $the$ $device$ $menu$. $Or$ $even$ $by$ $writing$ $a$ $node$.$is$ $service$ $and$ $implementing$ $it$ $similarly$.

    I'm definitely going to check it out after work. Curious how it's set up...

    Hmm, given a binary is involved, a direct patch wouldn't work for the top-bar (or at least would require a few workarounds). If xwteam could switch to using the binary via a Node.jsjsjs $service$, $then$ $it$'$d$ $be$ $extremely$ $helpful$ $and$ $would$ $may$ $any$ $sort$ $of$ $patch$ $trigger$ $extremely$ $easy$.

    Looks like it's an unjailed hybrid app with a plugin binary that toggles the feature.
    If you've liked my software, please consider to towards future development.

    This would be very useful!

    It would be great to somehow include that in advanced device menu patches and make it remember the state after a reboot.

    BTW: It also worked on my wife's Pre2 with 2.2.4 installed.
    How do you disable the accelerometer? Just curious...

    Thanks for making this app, being able to lock to landscape or portrait mode was something I found myself missing quite a lot moving from my Nexus One.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    <thread moved to homebrew>
    reports of app working on all 2.2.4 devices
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    laingman, you need Enyo at least. It can be installed on 2.1 from 2.2.4 doctor
