    A few days ago, my Nexus 7 updated itself to Android 4.2. Now, before this update, there was a button in the notification tray that allowed one to lock the screen rotation. With 4.2, it has disappeared.

    And I am not liking it. Anyone know how to get that button back? Thanks!

    It's moved to the settings pull down @ the right / top of the home screen.

    pull down from the RIGHT TOP corner of the screen -- center button "AUTO ROTATE" toggles it as before.

    @Dr.Guzzi and bigtroutz: That's it, in fact! Thank you very much for a complete solution.

    I found this to be really obscure. Had to search this forum to find the answer. Thanks!
