SBRotator – Landscape Homescreen

Available In: Cydia       Price: $1.99  

SettingsThis has been a hack that many have been wanting for a long time. Now you can rotate your iPhone and the homescreen will rotate too. This was tested on a 1st Gen iPhone so it’s a little slow but not bad. I recorded a video of the mod using my iPhone 3GS:


Cydia Description:

Not compatible with Stack. If you have crashing, please remove Stack to fix.

SpringBoard Rotator is here!!! At last, the so-wanted addon for iPhone’s SpringBoard. This application rotates your SpringBoard in every of the possible 4 orientations automatically, when you rotate your device! It does not rotate only the icons, but all your user interface! Check the screenshots and thank you for your support! Compatible with most of icon-management applications.
Compatible with:
Five Icon Dock
Not Working with:
Stack (crashes; remove Stack to fix)

Note: This is the first release, I except some rare cases of problems, I would love to hear your comments and I will update the app immediately.

  5. Hey. I Need some help!!!!
    I have an 8GB iPod Touch 3G.
    Whenever I try to use this app, it separates the icons and so only 3 rows show when viewing in landscape.
    And the 4th row of icons is barely visible (hidden almost) behind the dock and the apps on the dock.
    I didn’t know if anyone else had this problem.
    At first, I thought it was Shrink messing it up, but I don’t think it is.

  6. hey i was wondering is this Compatible with 3.13 jailbreak with snowbreeze..because it keep resring everytime i download it. help please also im using iphone 3g 8gb

  7. Gantera - SBRotator has MANY issues with iOS4 says

    I have a new iPhone 4 with iOS4, I have purchased and downloaded SBRotator with some disappointing results. The phone will glitch out very often using SBRotator, if you are in landscape mode, when you exit an app your wallpaper is always cropped incorrectly (stretch does not work correctly) and your dock icons are stuck in the middle of the screen, blocking other icons.

    The only way to resolve these issues is to flip the phone multiple times for the SBRotator to readjust, which is VERY annoying. This can also occasionally jumble your icons or lock you between pages on your home screen. On many occasions I have only been able to see half my icons because the page is cut off. The only way to fix it is a hard reset holding down the home button and the top button for 5ish seconds.

    On iOS4, SBRotator is far from being able to use your phone entirely in landscape mode (with the exception of apps that only work vertically). The lock screen does not adjust nor is there an option for it. Locking the phone in landscape mode will sometimes cripple you, because in order to fix many of the issues you must flip your phone, and when it is locked, this does not occur. (Obviously)

    The scaling and spacing do not work for the iOS4 version (yet, hopefully) and this is a vital part of the customization that was expected. And last but not least the folders are very far from polished, the wallpaper will split in a very odd fashion and the folder goes off the screen. If you have a folder with anything more than 4 icons, it will cut them off the screen, making it impossible to reach the apps unless you flip your phone back to vertical mode.

    Again, this app is FAR from polished for the iOS4, if you plan on using it please expect these glitches to get very annoying.

    I showed SBRotator to a friend of mine who has a 3GS and it looks to work very nicely. Though the dock apps in the middle of the screen (when exiting apps) is still an issue for us both, his iPhone looks and feels very much like a landscape device.

    I also want to say that I have been waiting for a tweak like this for quite some time. The goal behind it is to allow those who want the iPhone to be landscape to do so. But at the same time I think that many people, like me, would like the entire phone to conform to landscape as well.

    I hope the developer of SBRotator reads this and makes these necessary fixes to the iOS4 version. =)

    Please make these changes so that we can have landscape iPhones (permanently, without glitching), we have all been waiting so long, and we are counting on you to make it possible! <3

    Thanks for reading this post!

    Sincerely Yours,
