Auto rotate Home screen was one of the top features of 2nd Android M Developer preview. I hate to burst the bubble, Auto rotate home screen feature was not incorporated in the final version of Android Marshmallow 6.0. We're disappointed to see that auto rotate support hasn't made it to the home screen, however. In the second developer preview, the ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

If you are rooted (and probably not using lollipop), then you can also use xposed module App Settings. Open the module, search and open Maps and go to Orientation section and select "auto-rotate". This will force it to auto-rotate.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

In addition to Firelord's Tasker solution (which I favor over all the others mentioned in this post – but Tasker is a) not free and b) often a bit overwhelming for newbies especially) and Jaskaranbir's App Settings (like Tasker, Xposed is often a bit too much for some), there's a third option available, called PerApp. Admitted, it has not been updated for a ...

Use Rotation - Orientation Manager (7-day trial). It allows you to set the orientation per app or globally. "Reverse Portrait" is what you're looking for in terms of 180 degree. (Click image to enlarge) Alternatively, for my Paranoid ROM (AOSP; Android 5.1), using adb I can enter on PC: adb shell settings put system user_rotation 2 It achieves the ...

The latest version of Google Now added a home screen rotation option in its settings. To access the home screen settings, either long-tap on the home screen or choose Settings from the Google Now "hamburger menu" (the menu that slides in from the left). Allow rotation is the bottom option in the settings. Source

I don't know any way to do it by system tools. However, I know couple of apps, which will let you complete this task. You need root access. Here is what I have: Ultimate Rotation Control and GMD GestureControl Lite. GestureControl lets you tight almost anything to any gesture. And URC has an ability to share switches of orientations of screen as "Actions". ...

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.

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); }

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.

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 ...

You can use an app called Set Orientation by "Eyes-Free Project". It dose not require root and can force any app to rotate to any orientation and also only landscape and landscape reverse based on sensor. Its lightweight and also free. It is available in Google Play Store. Edit: Use Rotation - Orientation Manager instead by "Pranav Pandey". It is fully ...

Most automation apps can probably do this. Here's a "Flow" for Automate (free): http://llamalab.com/automate/community/flows/408

It works perfect if you follow the directions. Simply put, touch the google icon, once it pops up push the hamburger menu, find settings, scroll all the way down, last item on the list "allow rotation" tick it, now landscape mode is working, I know it's working on lollipop, marshmellow, and Android. N. strange place to place this setting, but what the ...

Some apps only work in portrait mode due to the fact that that is the way they are designed. Also most launchers (on a phone) are automatically in fixed portrait mode as well. If you don't have a gravity sensor then I suggest using an app like Unlimited Rotation Control which puts rotation buttons on your device. For landscape mode on my phone I installed ...

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 ...

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)
