    Hey guys, I'm new to this and thought I'd say hello, hello.

    So I thought I'd start by opening a thread [probably already discussed this] but anyway here we go!

    I'm pretty sure before the update I could rotate my Samsung Galaxy S3 on the home screen as well as on numerous apps. I know you can get the Ultimate Rotating app but I just want to know if you can do anything on the phone itself to get it rotating?

    Many thanks.

    Pull down on the notification bar and look for the "screen rotation" button at the top, make sure it is green(on). Tap it to change it.

    Or you could go to menu/settings/My device/Display/ scroll down to Screen and check the Auto rotate screen box.

    On your GS3 go to Settings...My Device...Display...and check the "Auto Rotate Screen." The home screen never rotated on 4.1.2 or currently 4.3 most of the auto rotating is app related or if your using the camera etc.

    Yes I've checked all of those options and there all working correctly. I just thought my screen did before the updates.

    Maybe I'm wrong like you say. Never mind, thank you for your replies anyway.

    Many thanks.
