    Unless I have the keyboard slid open, the home screen doesn't rotate. Apps do, but the homes screen doesn't. I have the auto-rotate open selected in settings.

    Also, when in my car dock, everything shows in landscape except when I am in a call. The call still shows up in the portrait. It is kind of annoying and lame

    I have also wondered why this is happening. Landscape worked when i wasn't rooted but ever since Bugless Beast it has not.

    Its not standard for the homescreen to rotate into landscape. There are apps that do it without the keyboard open though, Home++ is one of them, but i cant think of any others right now

    Yeah, in Home++ you have to go into the settings and tell it to adhere to the phone's theme and such. In your settings on the actual phone, make sure that you have auto rotate selected.
    Otherwise, I have no answers, sorry.
