Help needed: Auto Rotate failed on Nexus 7 FLO
My 2013 Nexus 7's auto rotation suddenly stopped working last Tuesday within the space of about 10 or 20 seconds. I rotated to portrait from landscape to read an article, then tried to rotate back to landscape for a different article but was not able to do so. I didn't do anything else at all in between the two articles.
My auto rotation is stuck in portrait, but is not locked in quick settings, and my ROM settings enable auto rotation for 0, 90 & 270 degrees. I've tried wiping dalvik & cache, wiping to factory defaults and even completely wiping the entire device storage then re-installing the original, non-rooted stock ROM. The problem is the same booted in safe mode.
I've tried the "Ultimate Rotation" app from the Play Store. I've tested different non-stock AOSP and AOKP ROMs (slim, infamous and plain vanilla; all from clean, full wipe installs) . I've tried Nova, Apex and stock launchers. Nothing has worked so far, though I can manually change and lock it to forced landscape or portrait mode using the Ultimate Rotate app.
The Google group for Nexus devices is a vacuum in terms of any help or real answers to the numerous posts about the exact same problem from Google.
