  1. How is this different from double tapping the home button go all the to the left and and turn off rotator?


  2. It’s similar to turning off rotator, just a Cydia tweak.
    I like how iNoRotate allows you to enable one or more applications, where as turning off rotator on iOS enables it for everything.
    For example: Enable SMS with iNoRotate, and say you’re laying down you can still experience reading Mail in landscape or portrait, but SMS will only be in portrait.
    In the end it’s the same action just a different method of enabling :P

  3. i have download and install it using ifunbox by computer but it is not working………….
