I recently installed the latest (2/9/2012) build of cyanogen mod 7 for my kindle fire. I can't figure out how to get the home screen into a portrait orientation. It defaults to landscape and doesn't respond to the device rotating, although other applications do. I'd appreciate any help.

Unrelated: this rom is awesome!

    Check your settings in Settings->CyanogenMod Settings->Display and see if it has the 0 degree and 180 degree orientations enabled? Could be that the ROM author has them turned off by default, perhaps. Commented Feb 14, 2012 at 14:18
  • 180 was disabled. I enabled it but the problem persists.

    Hm, only other thing I can think to check off the top of my head would be the launcher settings. I'm assuming it's ADW, so there might be something that controls the layout in Settings->ADW Settings (or from a home screen (Menu Button)->More->ADW Settings). If there's nothing there then I'm not sure what it could be. Commented Feb 15, 2012 at 4:54

Aha! As edlarerathis commented, you can change this in AWD settings.

settings -> ADW settings -> system preferences -> Home orientation

change from landscape to auto/sensor.
