    0.5 successfully fixed the shaking problem on my 3GS, however...

    I have now disabled Rotation Inhibitor because I believe it is leaking memory. My memory usage was stable previously, but after installing Rotation Inhibitor I have been able to watch my available memory steadily creep down from 156MB to 52MB over the course of 2 days of normal use. I know that when this gets low enough, its going to crash and respring, so I've disabled it for now.

    Rotation inhibitor messed up GPS tracking. Even toggling it off didnt fix it. Uninstalling it did.

    You mean it weakens the signal strength?

    I was using both my 3G and 3GS a few days ago. During the trip, my 3GS which had rotation inhibitor installed lost signal for 1/3 of the trip while my 3G without it had strong signal all the way. I thought my 3GS might be faulty and is just about to call applestore for a replacement.

    So, is the rotation inhibitor the real cause?

    I suspect so, because I uninstalled rotation inhibitor and the GPS worked fine again. What happened in my case would be the GPS not tracking properly and Id have to manually let it relocate me, if it would even pick up my location. Interestingly, installing the SBSettings toggle to shut it off didnt help either.

    I "think" that the GPS tracking uses teh accelerometer which I imagine also controls rotation of the iPhone. Someone correct me if I'm incorrect.

    I think accelerometer is not needed for GPS. Accelerometer is a very recent feature among the window mobile phones, and the older ones with GPS never had it.
