Even when I toggle the screen rotate button in quick settings or the display settings, the phone seems to be stuck in portrait view. Can't get landscape view to after ever since I update from 4.3 to 4.4.2. I've tried rebooting multiple times.

I have the official TW ROM (albeit rooted with CF).

Anyone experiencing this same issue?

FYI, After some research I found a solution.

The issue has to do with deleting Samsung Hub app (instead of just freezing), which seems to break screen rotation. I copied the steps in the link below to copy libgnustl_shared.so into system/lib, set permissions, and reboot.

BAM! Screen rotation now works.
