    Auto rotate no longer working

    For some reason the auto rotate on my screen isnt working anymore. I tried turning AR off then back on but still no luck. When the slider is closed no matter what way I turn my phone it stays the same.

    Any ideas?

    Im currently running froyo with the p3 kernal. It was initially working properly after the froyo install but just stoped .

    Wow, that's really weird, because with Froyo you can rotate it to any position and get a screen.

    Did you try a simple reset (on/off) of your phone? If that doesn't work you may need to do a factory data reset.

    sometimes a widget is the culprit, clear them all and load them one by one to rule that out if what hook said doesn't work.

    Is your accelerometer working? Try something that uses it? If it isn't you may need to do a factory reset as hook stated? Dunno

    Do you have nandroid backups? You can go to a previous one too.

    Yes the accelerometer works for everything else. The only thing it doesnt work is when the keyboard is closed and on the home screens and app drawer. If i open an app it rotates normal.

    How do i factory reset, and will it mess up root and froyo?

    Sounds like a setting my friend. Are you using a launcher? There will be settings on that and the OS.

    Nope no launcher. No need for one now with froyo.
