    Why would they remove this feature?

    Are you running the stock launcher?
    Just for giggles, try another launcher to see if you can get the homescreen to rotate.. :)
    As I stated in a post of mine, I use a different launcher, so I cannot remember if my stock launcher did, or did not have, the ability to rotate and I am on MM.

    Proabably another bit of lameness from the g5. This thing lags to rotate unlike any motorola phone I have had. An 820 and 4 gigs of ram... and yet lag.

    Have you tried a factory reset?
    Perhaps you got a device that has hardware bugs?
    All these issues you have, and posted about are non-existent on my G5.
    Is it still under warranty?

    If it's a new device, and possibly you might have a lemon, return it for replacement or refund.
