Hey guys, i recently notice my moto g rotates the screen way too often i wish it would, across the whole system, rom writing messages to pictures and everything, including of course games (i play just one, not really a gamer). It started getting on my nerves and i wanted to recalibrate the sensor so it stops rotating the screen every time i put the phone in a slight uneven position. There is no such tool in settings. Is there any solution regarding this ? i am rooted so ill take anything. Thank you !

I just deactivate auto-rotation on all my phones, it's annoying.

Yeah, I noticed that too. I just keep it off most of the time and enable it only when needed (which is not that often).

Perhaps you could try leaving the phone's auto rotation off and using a tasker gesture to trigger the orientation change.

Hi, I had the same problem and the only solution I came up to for now was to download an Xposed module called App settings, with it you can choose which apps can use the rotation or choose a specific rotation, I know it doesnt solve the sensibility problem, but at least its not that annoying anymore hehe

I use the app ROTATION LOCK ADAPTIVE to avoid non desired rotations.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...t.rotatedonate
Is an app for asking permission before rotating.
