It would be fantastic to get a patch that would temporarily disable the accelerometer data.

I am thinking either a keypress or gesture to activate this function. Or perhaps a toggle in the Device Menu (like those change in the awesome Device Menu MegaMix patch).

My programming skills are way too limited to take on this task...so I ask if there any savvy WebOS tinkerers that would give it a shot?

There was an old thread that asked for a similar enhancement. But there has been no posts since September 2009.

As discussed in the old thread about web browsing in bed and having the phone's absolute angle incessantly changing the browser's orientation is very irritating.

But also when viewing an image that was taken either 90 or 180 degress off cannot be viewed properly as when you turn the phone to see it correctly the accelerometer data keeps the image flipping.
