    Hi everyone!

    I have a new Samsung Galaxy S2. I recently installed some GUI enhancing tools. Suddenly I can't get the phone to auto rotate to landscape.
    I have checked the auto rotate setting.
    Anything else I could do or is this ia common hardware fault?

    Auto rotate does not work in Homescreen and AppDrawer when using TW. Other launchers gives you the option but that setting is within the launcher itself.

    Hi again!
    I did not have that application but I decided instead to install "Phone Tester" to check if the gyrometer and the accelerometer were working.
    Both were working.

    I then decided to reset the phone to factory settings.

    I did reset to factory settings, but the problem still remains!
    The phone does not auto switch to landscape even though the hardware works as it should according to the phone tester, and the phone in virgin state . I can manually switch to landscape.

    What could be going on?

    Perhaps I will need som service on the phone....?

    Sorry didn't explain a little clearer. TW is actually the default launcher which should be what you are using. Try opening the gallery and see if it rotates there.

    You could also try uninstalling the last few apps you installed to see if the apis are causing it.
