I have to say that after 5 days of owning this device I'm only left scratching my head on one point.... the auto-orientation of the home screen.
I've seen videos of rooted G1's running the hacked 1.5 firmware and the recently posted video of the Samsung i7500 with the 1.5 firmware all CLEARLY show that when the device is on home screen, the desktop (read home screen) auto-rotates depending on the orientation of the device. The Samsung video shows it working in ALL FOUR orientations!
This doesn't happen on my Magic
. Flip the orientation in an application? Works fine. Flip it back in an application? Works fine. Do it on the home screen? I'm craning my neck like a love sick puppy.
Am I missing something? Is this a feature that is disabled in the offical 1.5 Cupcake release? If that's the case - fine with me. I'll stop scratching my head and move on.
Look forward to a response from someone wiser than I.
auto-rotating.... If this is for a i7500 that may be possible ... but the Dream & Magic are not the same as the i7500...
I don't have a Magic, but have 2 G1s, One has the 1.5 ADP software ... which is for all intents and purposes the same as the Magic. Many of us have G1s loaded with 1.5 and you do not get 4-point-rotation... Would be kool if we did ... The Magic not having a slide out keyboard .. would make sense that it could do a 4-point turn ... (Just have not seen it)
