    Is there a way or an app that will rotate your screen clockwise rather than counter clockwise? I ask because being left handed its easier and faster for me to control the trackball with my left thumb.
    Thanks in advanced for your help.

    Does this mean I have to root my phone? Cause I would rather not, if there is any other way.

    ... that is not the question here.

    In one corner we have:
    Cyanogen's mod is a custom firmware, so you would have to re-flash your phone (same as if there was an official update to the Android OS).

    In the other corner we have:
    Most, if not all, custom firmwares do not actually require rooting, but offer it as an easily-toggled option.

    So you can use this mod without rooting, or you could root without modding, or both (or none, as now). That said ... rooting really is no more dangerous or magical than a cheese cutter, one simply needs to know just a little bit about what it's for to wield it safely.
