    okay so a while ago my phone stopped going to portrait mode. I looked into the auto rotate and it is enabled . now all my apps will open in landscape mode but my homescreens will stay in the vertical position. I have no idea like doing this I really don't have any weird apps all my apps I download are usually pretty high rated. (I will post a list of my apps if needed) so I was wondering anybody have any idea what it could be?

    Oh an forgot to mention when I slide my phone up to reveal the keyboard, the background will go to protrait mode.

    Check in the launcher settings to see if there is a box marked system persistent. If there is, and the box is checked, unchecked it I had the same issue with adw ex.

    Thank you sir you are a gentleman and a scholar. I must have accidently tripped that option when I was I'm the settings of the app. So once again I say thank you.
