Apple gave iPad users iOS 4.2 but took away the screen orientation lock switch in the process, and according to Steve Jobs it's never coming back. Not so fast, says the iOS hacking community; a new app called NoMute for iPad has popped up in the Cydia app store, which flips the hardware switch from being a mute control back to a screen lock.
As you may have guessed, there are some provisos involved, the biggest being that you'll have to jailbreak your iPad before you can access the Cydia app store and use the app. If you've done that, you can find NoMute for iPad in the BigBoss repository, where it's a free download.
