Tablet [Q] Need help with CM 10.1 orientation!

Hello!

I would like to thank Hashcode for CM10.1

and thanks to advice from stunts513 I finally got CM10.1 running on my kindle fire HD 8.9 after a brick scare.

Theres this one issue I cant seem to fix,

Any of the gameloft games I play not keep slipping orientation on me . They are in the landscape mode but it just keeps flipping upside down after every pause/resume or every mission etc. The games worked fine on the kindle before rooting and CM and work fine on my apple devices too.
I havent tried other games yet, I pretty much only play a few gameloft ones and this issue is with every single gameloft game I have.

I tried orientation locker but only works in portrait. Does anyone have an advice how to fix this ?

Thanks Alot in Advance!

Try an App called 'Set Orientation' works great for me. It's available in the play store. Says it's for phones, but works great on CM on the KFHD.

Already tried that, doesnt stop game from flipping it.

And its not just gameloft, most of the role playing games are doin it.

Hmm. What did you set it to? Also, if you reboot, you'll have to restart the app, it doesn't automatically start up on a reboot.

i use ultimate rotation control for that issue, it has a free trial.
My Wallpaper Fix for KF2, KFHD 7", and KFHD 8.9" is HERE
Please Read the instructions and use the debugger if you run into errors.
My own modified adb drivers for just about all kindles (includes old twrp and cm versions) HERE
Tablet UI Patch for latest CM10.1 build HERE!

Please send complaints to /dev/null

I locked it in the orientation i wanted to, works fine outside the game but during the game the screen just flips upside down, even when the tablet is just kept stable on the table, happening with almost all games.

Also If i upgrade to cm 11.0 is there a way to backup my apps or do i need to download them over again?
