Hi there. I have a Moto X 1st Gen XT1053 running 4.4.4
System Version 213.44.1.ghost_row.Retail.en.US
Build Number KXA21.12-L1.29.1

My problem is that for some reason, checking and unchecking the auto rotate check box under display settings does absolutely nothing.
Is there any way I can have the auto rotate feature turned off?

I have tried several auto rotate apps from the play store to somehow keep my phone locked in portrait or however, but again to no avail.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

P.S.
Phone is rooted, supersu installed but bootloader is still locked and running on stock 4.4.4 ROM.
Rootchecker confirmed that the phone has root access.

Do you have Gravity box installed ?
If so check if the "allow all rotations" in the "display tweaks" has been activated .
Do post your findings .

Well, if you haven't used xposed modules , then this is worth a shot .
Downloaded the latest version of Xposed framework . Read all the risks and instructions here : Ref :-
http://forum.xda-developers.com/xpos...gelog-t2714053 ;
http://forum.xda-developers.com/xpos...ssues-t2735540

Once you give root privileges to the app, install the xposed gravity box module from within the download section of the app.
Soft reboot to activate the module
Open display tweaks and look for the " enable all rotations " .
Check it once and see if rotations persist , Un check and see if rotations persist .

Note : Ensure that you've BACKED UP your current rom before attempting any changes .

Also, this is only a crude method to see if the values for auto-rotation are being changed or not . No guarantee that it will work, but it's worth a shot (Considering that xposed modules are awesome and you might find quite a few of them to your liking )

Thanks for introducing me to this xposed framework. really like what it does. However, it does not seem to help using the enable/disable all rotations, i still get nothing. my xt1053 just keeps on rotating when i rotate the phone. is there any flashable zip files that can revert this back to normal? i am doubtful that someone might have messed up my phone. tsk. i am totally so annoyed when i'm lying on my bed and when i am about to read a text, the screen just rotates itself.
by the way, i already have the bootloader unlocked, and i have had a soft and hard reset on this one. also booted in safe mode but to no success. everything else is working on this great phone except for this auto rotate. tsk. smh.

But thanks again for this xposed framework!!

You're welcome man.
Don't lose hope yet , it could still do a few things since your boot loader is unlocked . My guess is that the ROM or Kernel is at fault. So,
1) Change your kernel (for 4.4.4) . Try this one :http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...el-r1-t2926315 - This is because the kernel affects the way your software interacts with the hardware
2) Change your rom , Try krypton, it's 4.4.4 based so you won't lose out on moto features if you want a custom ROM or flash the stock SBF file for XT1053 4.4.4 using RSD lite. Read the general section on how to revert to stock
Do try .

I have downloaded zwliew kernel and i am now downloading the krypton 4.4.4 ROM.
I will just have to flash them in TWRP right?
Is there already a stable and battery friendly lollipop ROM for our Moto X?

First I suggest that you only flash the kernel an check (yes, via TWRP)
only then, change your rom.
IMHO, lollipop in itself is fairly buggy . I'm sticking to KK for now

Thanks again man! I figured that it was a ROM issue. i'm not sure why the stock ROM i have was buggy. But i no longer have the auto rotate issue. I have a different issue now though, all the gapps just stops working and force closes. And i dont have anything on my quick action buttons on my status bar. Everything else is ok though. Do have the link for gapps patch?

I really dont know what's going on now. I did a clean install of the krypton 4.4.4 ROM. Everything went exceptionally fine, no auto rotate issue, no nothing. i did not install the xposed framework, i just have the bare ROM.
and then i backed up the phone and rebooted.
after rebooting, there i have the auto rotate issue again. this is just crazy, i'm running out of hope now.

that is weird ! Ok, last option. Download the SBF file for 4.4.4 xt1053 and return to stock rom (May fix the problem)

Use these links for finding the correct version for your model:
