How can I fully rotate my screen and not only resize it like in the picture?enter image description here

In already tried several rotation apps in the play store. I tried via root shell the commands: wm size, settings put system accelerometer_rotation 0 and settings put system user_rotation 0 both are working fine on my phone, but not on my tablet.


You should try some rotation control app from play store, like Rotation Control which can rotate the screen in any direction you want (like reverse portrait) But you should also note that it's not possible with every app, because maybe the layout is not provided or the layout is forced to be in portrait mode, in that case no app can help you. There ain't much apps available specifically for xxhdpi & xxxhdpi screens and so you're not left with much choice but to work with the way it is....

  • @Abochur As OP puts, "How can I fully rotate my screen and not only resize it like in the picture?" - what I understand from this is, the situation shown in the picture is what OP has right now, and is not what he wanted. I'd say this answer got it right. – Andy Yan Feb 7 '18 at 2:02

    @Abochur On Android-x86 it works differently, since 1) most PCs have a built-in keyboard which is recognized, and Android by default will disable rotation with a keyboard connected (even if auto-rotation is enabled), and 2) many PCs don't have a sensor to detect auto-rotation with in the first place. – Andy Yan Feb 7 '18 at 2:43
  • That is exactly what I get when I use such a rotation app you mention. I also tried via shell WM size, and settings put system user_rotation. – phrogg Feb 7 '18 at 10:30
  • @AndyYan my tablet, has a rotation sensor. It works on windows but it seems that android does not recognize it. I also detached the keyboard several times to see if that helps but it does not unfortunately. – phrogg Feb 7 '18 at 10:31
  • Android x86 is not a perfect os for PCs, it has a lot of glitches and this is one of many... – Dhruba Feb 7 '18 at 10:40

I did not found any solution. I installed the new PhoenixOS. It works good, and the orientation sensor works too. Maybe we will find a solution for android x86 soon.


In latest version of Android x86_64 8.1 Screen is rotating normally if you select in Grub ... > Advanced Options ... > Vulkan Support


I face same problem on chuwi Hi10 x. Reason was if your tablet orientation sensor is not recognized Or defined in Android it forces screen in one orientation To solve this Open init.sh file which in device root /etc/init.sh Find the following line "has_sensors = false" and make it = true this tell android that you have orientation sensor even if it actually not recognized it Then reboot Now you can change orientation using any orientation app.
