    Since the FROYO update some stuff is only in Lanscape and it's what I would call upside down. Is there a fix for that? Like Gmail and internet and some others I noticed. Other than that it's smokin fast and everything is working fine for me.

    "what stuff" specifically is "upside down" for you?

    GMAIL, i can rotate the phoneleft or right and the display correct as it should.

    same for internet.. stock browser and dolphin
    l
    let me ask you:

    were you /are you rooted?
    did you install the leaked version?

    Look i had the EXACT same problem the only way I fixed it was by doing a hard reset but that cleared up numerous lag issues as well

    Go into your settings then display and double check your setting for "auto rotate". Also, calibrate your "G-sensor".

    And in your browser there is a setting for "Landscape only Display" you should double check.

    If those don't help, try clearing the browsers cache in App Management. Then like others have said try to reboot. And if all else fails a data reset should fix it.

    It's not working again, any ideas? When I reboot it works for a while but then reverts.

    did you recalibrate your G-Sensor? If not, go to Settings/Display/G-Sensor Calibration and re-calibrate it. Hope it helps.

    dolphin and gmail are the only ones?

    open up desk clock. that rotates.. can you try that app ( or any other app that rotates) to verify your handset will rotate apps properly? if it does then you may need to clear cache/reinstall dolphin...

    Gosh I'm an idiot. I had been trying to calibrate my phone by putting it on a flat surface on it's side or on it's end like you would a level. So i finally figured laying it flat meant on it's back. Works great now.
