    when opening the physical keyboard, the phone first comes out of sleep, and then switches from portrait to landscape. this is typically not too noticeable, but sometimes it takes up to 5 seconds. is there a way to make it so that opening the keyboard just resumes this phone already in landscape?

    also, has anyone figured out a way to get the home screen to respect switching to landscape when rotated, like all well-developed apps do?

    OpenHome allows that.

    As well as GDE. I think all the home replacements do this.

    I think we all did... It's a very simple concept that happened to escape the devs... not unlike the missing notification LED.:eek:

    GDE does this, and I wish it wouldn't. I unchecked the option to allow the homescreen to change orientation because it's slow to switch sometimes and ever since I checked it once to try it out, I can't get it to stop even with it being unchecked.
