    Using iPhone 4 (v.4.3.3) Jailbroken.

    Does anyone know if there is a hack which will allow me to trigger a change of orientation (portrait/landscape) using an Activator 'action' like 'status bar swipe down' or 'double-tap clock'?

    I have a physical disability, including impaired hand movement, and rotating the phone to change orientation is tricky for me.

    There are lots of orientation hacks on Cydia so I'd guess this kind of hack is possible, I'm just not sure if anyone has implemented what I'm after.

    Many thanks.

    I don;t think there is, however that is a great idea and application for activator, specially for people with disability, i would send a email to the developer, the orientation is a 1 line function and it would be so easy to implement I am sure that he just hasn't thought about it.

    I'll keep an eye open and if I see anything I would update

    As it happens I have a programming background, maybe I could give it a go. Never written anything for an Apple product before, but with the right tutorial...

    Is there an active Jailbroken iPhone app developer forum you know about? [I found a couple but they don't seem to be very active.]

    By the way, what is the orientation 1 line function?

    Many thanks.
