    just for grins and giggles, try installing an alternative launcher from the market and see if it properly rotates your screen(s) when you turn your phone. If it does than perhaps there's something wrong with home screen app in your froyo rom.
    I'd do a full nandroid backup than do the factory reset which will wipe your froyo out and you'll lose root. it will take you back to version 2.0.1 which is super easy to gain root on.

    Go to your settings/privacy/factory data reset. This will remove your apps and data but you should recover everything when you sign back in. Apps will be in your downloads in the market.

    Lucas, bingo, installed launcher pro and rotation works properly. Thanks for the idea.

    Im going to be installing kangerade custom rom tonight as soon as i get a few questions answered. Hopefully that will fix it.

    If someone would have a hander at my thread id appreciate it. Located here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hac...ease-help.html

    Sounds retarded I know, but I tried rebooting, removing the battery, turning AR off and on, and of course re-calibrating, nothing worked, was pissed, than I found a solution on another site, the answer lay the droid flat when calibrating, this worked, not sure why, maybe i'm dumb, but it worked, hope it works for you!

    Auto rotate

    Just saw an easy fix on another forum. It worked on my Incredible. Go to settings and then calibrate. When you calibrate lay the phone down, do not hold it in your hand or turn it sideways. Hit calibrate and OK. Your phone will auto rotate again (at least it did on y Incredible).
