    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

    Maybe we could call it the Mute Lite button :)
