Setting nook apps to use 180 degrees

Is there a way to set my nook to stay at 180 rotation?

In other words, I would like it to think that the N button is on the top of my nook instead of the botton.

The reason for this is so I can have my nook charging while in the stand I have for it.

Most of my apps work with auto-rotation, but enough don't to be annoying.

You can use settings to enable the 180 setting then use settings to enable the orientation toggle in the notification area. Then lock the orientation to 180 when you have it there.

How do I lock it? I tried turning off orientation once I have it at 180 but that just flips it back to 0.

I am using cm 7.2

If you are running CM7, go to cyano settings, notification bar Widgets, and choose orientation lock. Then once you are at 180, pull down notification area and toggle orientation to lock it.

Thank you. That works. For some reason WordFeud seems to ignore that setting

I feel ya on this and wish it could work. I sleep on the left side of the bed and hate turning it when it plugged in cause of the crappy nook cords breaking all the time.

I'm all thumb's
