    I wanna see a video too.... this has been debated to death and yet there's never been any 'video proof' on this happening w/o a home replacement.

    I think you've got to upload it to YouTube and then link back to the video

    The only way I have seen the home page go to landscape is by opening the slider about 1/4" (or of course all the way).

    I've always (even before the update) had the ability to rotate to landscape in all aspects of the phone EXCEPT on the home screen. (This is without a home replacement... just a stock phone)

    All other apps I used auto-rotated from day one on mine, even before the update.

    Thats normal behavior. All the devices do this and have done it before the update.

    We were under the assumption that you were talking about the homescreen (no apps opened)

    Mine without a doubt did do this right when I first got. At some point it stopped and no longer does it. Why can't Google just make it an option? That cannot be hard to do.
