    Any ideas of what it could be? Apps like text now and standard apps like safari, no landscape mode in any of them

    I have a jailbroken 3gs on 4.0.1 ...I havent installed any new apps lately

    any ideas? could it be that i have updated a few apps?

    broken sensor?

    i happened to me once before on my old 3g. it stopped working after a slight drop. within a few days of me banging the phone on my hand, like i probably shouldnt have, it started to work again.

    My guess would be that you have the rotation lock set.

    Swipe right on the application switcher to bring up the iPod controls. It's the button on the far left.
