So ever since I rooted and xposed kit kat, my nexus 7 has had this odd rotation bug. Mind you I only have gravitybox installed. If I leave my tablet in any orientation for about 10 minutes after a reboot, it will get stuck until I reboot again. This only started recently, and I haven't done much to remedy it because I don't want to deal with restoring all my stuff. Is there anything that might fix it short of this?

Same problem
I have been having the same issue since around the kitkat update. Exact same issue actually, can't figure out how to fix it. I've already factory reset and tried to install a different rom and nothing =(. Need to contact asus for warranty i think

Here also often the problem that screen rotation stops working. Which is very annoying for instance when using Flo before sleeptime while loading battery. In that scenario reverse portrait is needed.

When googling a few months ago before KitKat I found in Google Discussion Groups topics with a ridiculous amount of people with same problem starting from Jelly Bean 4.3 (I think). There it appears it is a often occuring Android bug on all Nexus devices. Even factory reset or reflashing firmware not helping. Apparently not fixed in KitKat.

But not fully informed and 100% shure further about this anymore now. Have to reinvestigate. But it is most cerainly not a hardware bug. Otherwise rotation would never work.

Most of the time in my case rotation stops only working for a little while since KK. However since about a week it rotation won't start working again for a long time like while using JB.

Tried lots of things which seemed to work and than later not. Such as shutdown and power on. Soft reset/hard reboot by long pressing power. Etc.

Probably I will now use same temperary solution as in JB. And hoop fix will come finally from Google. That means using a 3rd party rotation app from Play Store during moments Android rotation has stopped working. Not all those apps working though when Android's rotation itself stopped.
