    Hey all! I have a serious complaint :mad: with 2.2 rotation as explained below. If you agree, will you please add your comment to my post at Google's forum here Turn on or off rotate right and left when greater than a certain roll angle - Google Mobile Help ? Thank you!! :D

    Device: Evo
    Carrier: Sprint
    Country / Language: USA / English
    OS / Browser / build number: 2.2 3.26.651.6

    Hello Android support,

    I have one serious complaint with 2.2. Android has added auto rotation to the right. But, it has not given the user the ability to adjust such in settings -> display -> auto rotate screen. Google, you REALLY need to add user-definable settings for this.

    Adding the rotate to the right feature exactly doubles the frequency of mistaken rotations. Mistaken rotations are inconvenient because it causes a delay for screen refresh, delay for browser redraw, some apps lose data that I have entered before saving, and some apps lose previous page positioning forcing me to scroll back to the previous position. Before adding the rotate to the right feature, the mistaken rotations were bothersome. Now, it decreases productivity and convenience so much that I must turn the feature off.

    However, the simple solution is to add the ability for the user to set the following in settings:

    1. Turn on or off rotate right.
    1.1 Turn on or off rotate right when greater than a certain roll angle.
    2. Turn on or off rotate left.
    2.1 Turn on or off rotate left when greater than a certain roll angle.

    If Google did add these settings, I would enter in values significantly greater than the default settings!

    Best wishes,
    Leafgreen

    Bump. Problem solved with Cyanogenmod and all the other customs but bump nonetheless on your letter. Thls should be opt in at the least, modifiable without fancy tricks at the most.
