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. ...

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 ...

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.

Based on this do you have some switch near volume button? If yes, try changing it.

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.

Have you tried a 3rd-party app like Smart Rotator? Are you tired of switching auto-rotate setting back and forth? This tool can help you auto switching it. You can set auto-rorate/portrait/landscape setting for each app, when you open those apps, it will help you set screen orientation to auto, portrait, landscape automatically.

There isn't a system setting, so the app Smart Rotator is probably the closest thing you can get, but yes, in the beginning, you have to set everything up yourself.

According to this StackOverflow question, YES. Excerpt: public static void setAutoOrientationEnabled(ContentResolver resolver, boolean enabled) { Settings.System.putInt(resolver, Settings.System.ACCELEROMETER_ROTATION, enabled ? 1 : 0); }

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 ...

Go to settings > display > rotation. In there you might have the option to enable 180 degrees. This works for me using CM9 so hopefully it works for you.

It doesn't support this out-of-the box, but you can swing it by using the Xposed Framework and the Xposed GEL Settings module: Install the Xposed Framework installer Open the XF installer and select "Framework" at the top of the menu, then press the "Install/Update" button on the next page Reboot Install Xposed GEL Settings, either from Google Play or via ...

Rebooting into Safe Mode fixed the issue for me somehow. To go boot into Safe Mode: 1) Long Press on the power button for 1 second. 2) in the power off menu that appears, press and hold the Power Off option. 3) A Reboot into Safe Mode dialog will appear, Click Ok to boot into safe mode. After you have booted once into safe mode, check if ...

I use an android app called Adaptive Rotation. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ui.robot.rotate It adds the ability to rotate the screen in any orientation and it STAYS that way. So when apps want to rotate your screen and you want it in Landscape, it stays in landscape, or whatever your preferred orientation is. As its software it should ...

This is not possible without a third-party application. A quick search on Google Play shows several apps which should allow you to do what you want.

You might try the Ultimate Rotation Control app -- when I tested, I found that it could force any of the apps I tested to rotate. It's a seven day free trial, then requires a license purchase (US$2.99). It turned out that I didn't really consider the app that inspired me to download this any better when force rotated, so I did not purchase, but your ...

I have not tried this myself, but it seems to be possible using the Xposed Framework and its AppSettings Module – provided your device is rooted. From its announced features: Force orientation (portrait/landscape/auto)

In the more recent updates to the Galaxy S III (at least Android 4.1.2) you can modify the notification panel at the top of the notifications screens that you get when you drag from the status bar. Open settings, 'Display' (under 'Device' heading) then in the 'General' heading choose 'Notification panel'. Here you should be able to choose which Quick ...

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.
