For the use with a neoprene bracelet for running, I would like to quickly lock my Milestone 1@Cyanogenmod 7.2.0 to landscape mode. All widgets that disable auto orientation seem to cause the phone to switch back to portrait.

I could achieve that by disabling 0°/180°/270° in the settings, but I would like an easier solution with a widget.

    Which widgets have you tried that didn't work? I know Rotation Locker, for example, has a widget that's designed to lock whatever your current orientation is when pressed. Jun 27 '12 at 15:27
  • Sorry, somehow I overlooked this comment. Yes, Rotation Locker works. Thanks!

Rotation Locker says that it supports this:

  • Lock your screen's rotation in Landscape, Portrait or Auto. When you launch the app, you're faced with these three options.

For doing this quickly, it does also include a widget to lock whatever your current orientation is:

  • A widget is provided so you can lock into whatever your current orientation is. (Useful for reverse landscape for example).
  • Fantastic! An app for everything... :) Jul 13 '12 at 18:17
  • I have attached its launcher icon to Notification Bar using Widgetsoid. Now, I can lock the orientation from within an app. No need to screw Home Launcher. Jul 13 '12 at 18:25
