Screen rotation needs to be supported by the app. Some rotate, some don't. The default Samsung launcher does not support rotation. If you want homescreen to rotate you will need to use a third party launcher like LauncherPro or Go launcher etc.

Also check if auto rotation is enabled by pulling down your status bar.

Yeah .. The screen only rotates in the applications that support it.most probably samsung has omitted the home screen auto rotation to save battery..

I have a the solution for this. I was having the same problem i've tried everything and at the end i find the solution. Just install first "Rotation Toggler.apk" and then "ADWLauncher EX v1.3.3.apk" and everything is working fine on rotation from home screen to applications screen full 360 . I hope i helped everybody with this issues on Samsung Galaxy mini,pop and other devices. Now my phone is boosted like real power user phone, running on 825 mhz

can someone help me out with auto rotation? When i enable auto rotation, all apps like messaging or settings or any in built apps are seen landscaped. Even when i turn my phone in normal (portrait) position, it stays landscaped. My accelerometer is working very normal. Please help me out.

It takes time for it to rotate. Also, if your settings are all right, you need to incline your device to a certain angle for it to work. Try tilting your device up and down (left and right). After a few experiments you will get it working and probably also get to know the trick how to do it in future too.
