Default HTC EVO 4G LTE Glitches (Screen Rotation issues)

HTC Sense 4.0 glitches on the LTEvo. Post'em if you got'em.


So far I've noticed two glitches. And I've heard of one other...

The first is extremely useful. Homescreen landscape view in HTC Sense (No 3rd party launcher required!). I haven't seen anyone else mention this so far, but today I turned off auto rotation on my phone, and the phone defaulted to a landscape view rather than portrait. This includes the homescreen! Let me know if this is a normal occurrence for all devices, or if there might be something that I did that caused this to happen.

The second is useless, but a glitch nonetheless. Normally when I scroll through my home screens, I will either scroll to the next screen, or if I haven't scrolled far enough, the current screen will spring back and recenter itself. However, when I scroll my device to the right-most home screen, and if I then swipe my finger as quickly as possible to try and force it off the left side of the screen, then take one last slow swipe and let go, the screen won't spring back and recenter, but rather, it will fire back so hard that it scrolls through all my screens and lands at the left-most of my home screens (almost instantly flies through all 7 of my screens).

Also, in another thread, someone pointed out that FoxFi works for wifi tethering, however, the Network Name and Passwords cannot be set. This is a VERY useful glitch (getting the wifi tether), but a disappointing glitch restriction (the lack of password protection).


If you have anything else that you have come across, useful or not, we want to hear it.

Do you have Media Link? The only time I've seen home screens (and lock screens) in landscape is when I'm connected to Media Link. If not, THEN WHAT DID YOU DO??? Who hasn't wanted landscape sense since the OG?

I've had similar sense issues transitioning from screen to screen quickly. Sometimes it flashes to the next screen and springs back.

Also, a few times when hitting Home after being in the browser I get a Sense reset of sorts. It's not the old white screen version with the OG but it "thinks" for a few seconds then renders.

No, I do not have a media link. And yes, it is a permanent rotation, through swiping screens and returning after launching apps. Everything. It's not a temporary illusion.

I just rebooted my phone to see if I can do it again.... Yep, it's still going landscape on command (when turning off auto-rotation, it's defaulting to landscape view on my homescreens)!

I'm not sure what is causing it right now... I suspect that it's either Wave Launcher or Quick Settings. I'll post screen shots tomorrow.

If I launch the car app and go back to home screen it remains in landscape until I take it off car mode but not every time which is weird.

I just don't understand why if it is built into certain parts of the ui why not allow it full time it looks fine and is fully functional

Sweet! I haven't used the car app yet, but that's very good to know.

As of right now I actually can't get my phone to lock in portrait mode. It defaults to landscape (no complaints here!).

I saw Neoterix mention the same findings in one of the threads around here. Don't feel like digging it up though.
Could be an application like you mentioned - I'm leaning towards Wave or one of its settings.
I'd love it if you guys could figure out what is causing it. I want to achieve landscape homescreens, stock without installing anything.

I can't replicate this. When leaving the stock Car Application it makes me confirm and close the application, not sure what you mean by 'take it off car mode'.

I've been getting a notification from time to time telling me it can't set the time zone and pulls up a menu to select the time zone. Funny thing is that the zone is correct and doesn't need to be changed.

I had that for the first few hours, but it has since stopped asking. Network thing, probably.

So far I have uninstalled Quick Settings, Wave Launcher, Widget Locker, and XScope, and I still have homescreen rotation. I really don't know what is causing this

Yes I experienced this issue too... and then inexplicably... it stopped. I can't say how or why. Now I can't get the Home screen to go landscape voluntarily. Odd.

This is not really a glitch. This is how the home screens go through continuous scrolling. It wasn't a part of stock Sense, but it has been a feature in some of the AOSP and Sense based ROMS for a while. It's nice if you don't remember where one of your icons are, instead of scrolling right 3 screens, you don't have to scroll back over them. The only glitchy thing that I've seen is that it zips backward to the first screen rather than just continuing as if it were a circular loop.

I am having issues with maxing out text fields when typing.

I was submitting bug report via MLB app that opened gmail. Was typing and at some point it wouldn't let me type anymore. Thought was app restricting email.

Well, just happens using Phandroid app trying to type a post. Stopped letting me type.

Using stock Swype keyboard.

One thing I have noticed is that when tapping home from an app, Sense sometimes has to restart. I was having that happen a lot with my 3D, but I didn't expect it with this one...

I've never seen a landscape homescreen. Is there a setting? I've tried auto on and off.

Just to add to this, and perhaps expose a way this can be exploited, if you connect phone over HDMI using MHL/USB port, Sense Home is forced into landscape. I really like it. I'd like to see a hack to the stock ROM to allow this rotation.

Just an update, my phone rotation is still bugged and I still haven't been able to figure out what caused it. It's actually a nuisance now because disabling auto rotation forces it into landscape no matter whether I'm on home screen or in an app. I prefer portrait when I'm laying on my side in bed, but I can't get it to lock that way.

I noticed a second location for the homescreen rotation option, under Accessibility. Looks like normally if you change it in one place it applies across the board. You could see if yours are operating independent of eachother, however there is probably slim to no chance of this.

If you haven't already, you could try a few g-sensor calibrations to clear the rotation bug...

I checked out those two options. I have now lost my home screen rotation. Blessing/curse is gone.
Now let's see if I can figure out what caused it!

I'm having an issue where I change the time it takes for the screen to go to sleep from 30 seconds to 2 minutes, and the phone resets it back to 30 seconds when the screen turns off. Anyone else have this problem?

Alarm clock....pulling "snooze" to the ring on the lockscreen just unlocks the phone while letting the alarm continue. Unlocking the phone with the ring only makes the alarm go off. Anybody else seen this? This is my second EVO 4G LTE (first one had 2 dead pixels) and both of them did the same thing.

what have you done to troubleshoot?

here ill get the party started:

1. are you rooted?
2. do you have any 3rd party apps that can take control of the lock screen/wallpaper?
3. have you previously installed or uninstalled any apps?
4. did you perform a software reset (via the power shutdown menu)?
5. do you use a car dock or any other dock?
6. is the handset in a case and/or using a screen protector?
7. what were you doing with the handset prior to this happening?
8.. does it go into portrait mode in other apps, say the browser?

I know this post is a couple months old but I unchecked auto rotate and yes mine is stuck in Landscape which is great for at night when I stick my phone in this thing I use for a dock. We were out to dinner a couple weeks ago and this think held a little menu in it and our phone fits perfect in it. Now the landscape is only one way you can't landscape with kickstand but when my phone is in this dock thing i have it the other way anyway so I can charge it so this is perfect for me. Glad I decided to read some old threads and see if anything new was here. I'm still loving my phone.

And when I dock my phone in the Sprint dock it goes to landscape mode too. I can exit out of my car app and my home screen remains in landscape until I pull the phone out of my dock which is nice.

Permanently in landscape? That's different from my experience. For me, if I put I turned off auto rotate it would go into landscape instead of portrait, but auto rotate worked fine. Sorry, I don't know what to do to resolve your situation. Have you tried holding the power button for 10secs to force a hard reset?

Oh sorry my post was misleading it was stuck in Landscape until I checked auto rotate again then it went back to normal. But I was saying I like unchecking it and having it stuck in Landscape for at night for this thing I use as a dock. Sorry my post was confusing.

OK, then your experience is exactly like mine. I never did figure out how to create that glitch, but I know that it can be undone by swapping back and forth between auto rotate on and off while alternating between the two different areas in settings that allow you to lock the orientation (see earlier posts for more info if you are interested).

Thanks, I just never knew the part about unchecking auto rotate and it going to Lanscape mode which is great for when we dock our phones at night since there's no dock mode anymore. There is in the car which I love. But I have this deskclock plus I sometimes put it on so I don't need to uncheck auto rotatr and recheck it all the time that's a pain LOL!

So is the unchecking of the auto rotate and your screen going into Landscape considered a glitch or is it suppose to do that? Now I am confused cause when I uncheck mine it goes into Landscape on my home screen but yesterday we kept trying his phone and his wouldn't do it and we compared all settings. I am hoping Jelly Bean will just have auto roate on home screen that would be cool.

Did anyone figure out a fix for this?? My evo goes in and out of landscape mode whenever it feels like it. Even after a hard reset and no third party apps. I reclabirated the G sensor and still no change, unchecked auto rotate too. I want to see if anyone has any ideas before I waste an afternoon at the sprint store.

Thanks.

I have two friends and there's don't do it but when I uncheck auto rotate that is the only time mine goes into Landscape mode and when I recheck it then it goes back. But my two friends uncheck thee's and nothing happens and they would like it to go to Landscape like mine for when it's in the home dock. Mine auto does it in the car dock though. I would go to the sprint store.

I'm not rooted or have any rom It's just stock everything but when I uncheck auto rotate I get landscape even lockscreen and I can dock my phone like that at night in this thing I keep it in. But both of them there's don't move at all when they uncheck it. Mine does and when i check it then it goes back to normal.

Unchecking auto rotate in display and gestures also unchecked it automatically in accessibility. When I do this it locks in portrait mode, even if I unchecked it while in landscape (in which case it switches it to portrait and keeps it there.) Checking it again brought rotation back without a problem.

Default Question about tab location (screen glitch)

Does the tab bar (or whatever it's called) circled in red look normal to you? I could have swore it was at the bottom of the screen, and now somehow in the last few days it founds it's way to the side of the screen. I've looked all over and can't find a way to relocate this tab bar. Is this movable, and if so, how?

Thanks in advance.

This is a strange one. It is not movable that I know of, though the tabs can be put into a different order. As far as I've seen the tabs should always be at the bottom unless you force the handset landscape with a 3rd party application (even then, the dialer pad and recent calls area should be landscape as well).

Could this be another bug in the Aluminum Skin? However, I'm not able to recreate this issue. If the restart doesn't work (try a regular restart and forced restart -hold power for 10 seconds), you could try changing to a different skin to see if it will clear or on the off chance re-calibrate your G-sensor?

I re-started the phone and it's now back to normal. Strange.

Apex launcher is supposed to have this feature, but it is not working on my phone.

Edit: Nova Launcher allowed landscape for the home screens.

I had to get a new phone and the new phone doesn't do it. But my old phone I would uncheck auto rotate andmy home screen would go in to Landscape and stay that way till I rechecked auto rotate. It was nice for at night in my dock. Maybe in JB it will rotate.

Ok, never mind! After a bit more research I realized that I had recalibrated the g sensor by laying the phone on its edge during calibration as opposed to laying the phone on its back like you're supposed to. Hopefully, this will help the other idiots like me.......
