Are you supposed to turn it 180, and wait? Or 180 for a bit and then back? Or 360 in one go?
We never have a problem shaking at the same time for asteroids so our 100% failure record for wormholes suggests we're doing it completely wrong!
I personally never played the game myself but I saw my friends playing it just today and I think I already fully understood the game (I was spending a good part of my day reading about it). I probably can't play because I only have an iTouch 4G and a phone with no data plan. I think I might consider borrowing my friends' iPhones instead
Ok, enough about me. I think all of you who tried giving answers for this question has failed to explain properly. Flipping 180º is NOT the essence. The essence is to make sure your proximity sensor on your iPhone detects it's close to some surface. So flipping 180º is part of it, but the other part is to put it flat on a surface, with the screen facing it. (Explains why everyone says flip 180º) Might take some time to recognize. I see my friends always doing this, and they always succeed in escaping the wormhole. On a last note, I have no clue whether it's completely necessary to flip 180º, or covering your iPhone's proximity sensor is enough.
