I use Quick Settings and there's an option to toggle auto-rotate. I have it so the shortcut to Quick Settings lives in my Notification bar so to toggle it requires a swipe, two taps and the back button to toggle it and get back to the app I was in. If you wanted to reduce this down to tap home, toggle, tap return if you use QuickDesk which lets you put ...
If it doesn't work out of the box, which is the case with many Android phones, then you have a few different options: A launcher replacement which adds this feature (may not work with all ROMs) A custom ROM like cyanogen mod, which has this feature built in. You can read more about custom ROMs here Wait for an official update which adds this feature. ...
Menu -> Settings -> Display -> Auto-rotate screen - This option should disable screen rotation throughout the system. Menu -> Settings -> CyanogenMod settings -> Display -> Rotate 180 degrees - This option disables the "upside-down" rotation only.
I do not believe Android 2.1 allows this. I've read that the latest release Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) will have this feature. Sorry I couldn't find the post that mentioned it but here is the API link.
if you need easy access to it then Menu -> Settings -> CyanogenMod settings -> Display -> Interface -> Notification power widget - > Widget buttons -> Toggle Orientation will add a widget on the notification menu that lets you enable or disable rotation. just about the only time it seems useful is if you are lying on your side and you want the phone to ...
Having an SGS2 myself, I just checked *#0*# and all 3 axis values change. So you definitely seem to have a problem here, either in software or hardware, and since you've already tried to search for solutions online and could not find anything which works, perhaps it's best to contact Samsung directly for help.
Alternatively, my default recommendation for cases like this: Tasker. Use a profile like this (abstract): Condition: App (select "Youtube", and optionally other apps you would like to have autorotate turned on) Task: Display->Display Rotation: Set On This way, whenever one of the selected apps runs in foreground, autorotate is turned on -- and as soon as ...
Please be aware that home screens DO NOT rotate. As well as this, developers can request their apps are only to be used in portrait mode - they therefore won't rotate automatically. If you really want to rotate your screen, you can download the Set Orientation app, which will allow you to force your screen to rotate, based on a default orientation setting, ...
Part of what jlehenbauer wrote is correct in that ADW only gives you an option to have auto rotation or to keep your home screen in portrait or landscape mode. Depending on how many home screens and what widgets and types of widgets, folders etc you have on your homescreen it will determine the amount of memory your home screen requires and how long it takes ...
I have searched for the same thing, and unfortunately, have not come up with much of anything. What I have settled for is turning off auto-rotate, and only using it for apps where I really need rotation. I do recall there being an app which allows setting auto-rotate on and off on a per-app basis. I believe it is called Smart Auto-Rotate.
From everything I've read, it appears that the Desire Z version of Sense only rotates the homescreen when the keyboard is out. You could try installing a custom ROM like this one at XDA that supports rotation.
