Default [HOWTO] enable both in-app and lockscreen rotation on 11S, custom lockscreen or not

this should fix rotation on all apps. it definitely fixes rotation on most apps, including the lockscreen.

you need a build.prop edit

i've tested this on the new OTA 33R stock
works like a charm.

i hope people will build this into their customs, if they haven't already

go to /system
edit build.prop. you'll need an editor with root access and r/w privileges
add to the end of the file

Code:
log.tag.launcher_force_rotate=VERBOSE
lockscreen.rot_override=true



save.
reboot.

now someone make a simple script app for me so that i don't have to write this every time i flash, lol.
If you need help, try IRC #Cyanogenmod in freenode.net
Someone may be able to help you there. I will try, if I'm on.

Hmmm....my homescreen now rotates but not my lockscreen. I'm on 33R stock rooted. My bad. There was a space in "lockscreen". Works perfect now. Thanks!

attached are the things you need

extract the files from the zip

put the tweak.prop on the root of your internal storage

then after an update or new rom, flash the tweakprop-0.5.2.zip in recovery

should fix you up nicely, just tested it and it worked fine for me
