    I have just installed iOS 4.2. Strangely my screen rotation button has changed function and has now become a mute button instead.

    How can i get the original function back?

    Go back to 3.2.2. This has been well documented.

    double-click the home button and swipe you finger to the right on the bottom frame. there is a software screen rotation button on the left.

    Thanks. Worked great!

    Maybe should go back to 3.2.2 seams to be alot of bugs in 4.2. But 4.2 has swedish dashbord and i am swedish so i like to keap it. At least a little longer

    I joined this forum because of the problem with the screen orientation lock being changed to a mute button. I love my iPad but this does bring to mind, "Don't fix something that ain't broke."

    Please dont start yet ANOTHER screen-lock bashing thread. There are already way too many of them.

    Hehe, if you really want to express your displeasure, there is a poll over in the polls section. FWIW, I also voted "bring it back".

    I, too, could not understand why the screen lock button had changed to a mute button after uploading iOS4.2 but after visiting this forum site, found the answer ... And I love the double click & swipe along to find the new button - thanks guys for your help.

    I wouldnt have minded it being changed to a mute button but it only seems to mute system sounds, not running program sounds

    The 4.2.1 multi-task should be called "fast app switching"

    and the mute button...haven't found a name yet that best describes this hybrid-does-not-mute-every-sound-but-mutes-some button

    Welcome to the AppleMuteâ„¢: The Mute button the way Jobbs think it should be

    Let's just hope audio receivers and tv manufacturers don't adopt Apple's AppleMute philosophy.

    Thank you so much for this. I thought they'd removed it completely. I was pretty disspaointed. It's not so bad now.

    You list that you have some other idevices but not an iPad. If you don't have an iPad, then what are you doing posting on an iPad forum? If you do have an iPad, then I am sorry.
