Default [Q] Any mod known which can rotate 180?

I have got to the end of the road in terms of searches for existing apps for this. I'd like to flip or rotate the screen on my Nook Simple Touch so that it is still in portrait, but upside down.

Does anyone know if this is possible? I have tried countless options which force landscape etc but I just need everything upside down - a full 180 degrees.

Any ideas?

Android 2.1 does not support all 4 rotations.
That appeared in Android 2.3

On the application level you should be able to implement that by setRotation on your main ViewGroup.
You will have to handle screen touch coordinates separately.

Ah, I was hoping to get it working for the whole system in order to work around the fact I have a scratch on the bottom right corner which keeps digging into my palm uncomfortably!

Thanks for the quick response. I'll try sandpaper!

I find that a little mount helps.
I use a monopod mostly.
I use it even when handheld so that I don't have to grip the sides.
The monopod just goes between a few fingers on the back with your thumb to turn pages.
