Some people do it by holding in the swivel button and simply forcing the flash further to the right - presumably breaking off a little plastic tab that is designed to prevent it from turning farther than 90 degrees. That apparently will "allow" it to swivel to 135 degrees - and probably put an unacceptable strain on delicate internal wires - which I presume is why Nikon limited the swivel in the first place.

The question is why? You can always mount the flash on a bracket or stand with a swivel mount that will give you 360 degrees of rotation without risking damaging a pretty expensive and difficult to replace flash.
