Thread: Disable Screen Rotation in SMS Only

  1. #1
    Default Disable Screen Rotation in SMS Only
    Do any of you know of a way to disable the screen rotation (landscape mode) in just the SMS app? I have heard of the SBSettings toggle to disable all rotation, but I use rotation in everything BUT the SMS app. I am sure a lot of people wonder why I would want to do such a thing, I mean what else was 3.0 for! I guess I grew accustomed to the portrait mode pre-3.0 and find it easier to type in portrait and it makes for lousy typing when you are laying down. Thank you.

    haha, i actually did this same thing. your gunna want to download rotationinhibitor from cydia, it is a sbsettings addon, and then your gunna want to SSH into your phone /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/RotationInhibitor.plist

    and change the this part of the plist:
    {
    Filter = {
    Bundles = (
    "com.apple.springboard",
    );
    };
    }

    to this:

    {
    Filter = {
    Bundles = (
    "com.apple.MobileSMS",
    );
    };
    }

    Thanks for the reply R
    remz08! Now I just have to find the rotator inhibitor. I guess the only repo is ispazio. Do you have any idea how to get if a repo is down?

    I can just attach it for you, and mine already has the SMS plist change

    drop it in /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries

    Say I wanted only cover flow to not rotate, is there a way I can edit the plist to make that happen?

    I'm sure there is, maybe add com.apple.mobileipod

    like this maybe
    {
    Filter = {
    Bundles = (
    "com.apple.MobileSMS","com.apple.mobileipod"
    );
    };
    }

    can you attach the whole rotation inhibitor app files... since its not available right now on cydia (since iSpazio source is down)
    and tell us where all to put each file.

    they're already attached in post 4. you put them in /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries if you want it to effect the whole phone change com.apple.mobileSMS to com.apple.UIKit

    yes, that worked perfectly. Also, an update to the ispazio repo is on cydia, and rotation inhibitor is downloadable again

    Is there anyway to keep it in landscape mode though instead of portrait?

    To keep it in landscape you have to make it open in landscape using the
    <key>UIInterfaceOrientation</key>
    <string>UIInterfaceOrientationLandscapeRight</string>
