    Is this just me or are others finding this?

    Go to photos app, load any pic and turn your phone sideways, mine will not rotate the picture, ive tried turning on and off again, upside down, both sides... nothing.

    glitch or just me?

    ps - rotate works in everything else.

    I have the exact same problem... Rotate works everywhere else EXCEPT in the photo viewer. Very frustrating.

    Anyone else?

    Were these pictures synced, screenshots, or taken with the Camera app? I don't have this issue with an iPhone 4 running 4.1...

    I had a similar problem lastnight. It was everything. Not one native or third party app wanted to rotate. So I did a hard reset and everything is fine now. Seems to a lot of glitches out there with 4.1.

    Well, they are rotating for me but I've noticed it's a LOT less sensitive in 4.1.

    Sometimes I have to rotate the phone 3 or 4 times before it'll actually turn the picture. Clearly they changed something and it looks like it's being even more aggressive with some phones than with others.

    ** confirmed fix **

    Performing a hard reset by holding home and power until shutdown and power cycling back on corrects the issue. A standard power cycle does not fix the issue.

    Thx for the tip!!
