    Hi All,

    I have auto orient turned on and it seems to work fine except for the Home screen. However, if I slide out the physical keyboard the Home screen will flip to landscape...until I close the keyboard again......:icon_eek:

    Any solutions and/or workarounds ?

    Thanks,

    J.

    Even if it is "working as intended", I would like to see an option to enable auto-rotation of the home screen as the OP implied.

    So it's supposed to rotate? I guess I read too many Droid forums as I was called a liar for saying mine rotated at one point.

    EDIT: The link provided says in proper English:

    "Hi, the home screen is a screens that does not automatically change orientation, it only changes to landscape view if you open the slider."


    So that says it is working as intended and it rotating is the bug not the lack of rotation.

    install the Open Home app. It's $4 and it provides a whole new experience. Well worth the money.....and yes, it have a toggle to make the home screen rotate if you change orientation.

    Strange..I just tried mine and I know I saw the home screen rotate before. But now it wont. Even when I open the drawer, it wont rotate. Other apps still do tho.

    i like how mine does not auto rotate on the home screen but it still rotates fine for all the apps...

    on my storm i used the "auto rotation wiazard" and locked the phone in portrait mode anyways.
