Default [ICS PATCH][CWM] Dear XDA, I present to you...the rotation fix :)

ONLY FOR ICS LEAK-BASED ROMS

ONLY FOR ICS LEAK-BASED ROMS

If you have Gingerbread, don't read further!!



Auto-rotate! :D
Specifically, this fixes the accelerometer issue altogether. Its a deep fix, going down to the driver level. So games and camera work too.

This should work on all ICS leak-derivative ROMs, including my own (and will be baked into my upcoming release).
Long story short, this was made possible due to the ATT Galaxy Note leak (a cousin of the T989)
In theory we can now start pushing out functional ICS ROMs. But there is still the pesky call echo issue, looking into that.

Feel free to include it in your ROMs...although I do ask for some credit since I spent countless hours in the past few days investigating and investigating. My eyes are sore

Warning: Please make a NANDROID backup prior to flashing this.
You never know what can go wrong.
There is no need to clear Dalvik, but I'd do it anyway if I were you.

This file needs to be flashed with ClockworkMod
So you can put it on your SD card, boot into recovery, and install it.

Be careful though. Make a backup first. Always make backups.

IMPORTANT
After installation, remember to:
1) Enable auto-rotation on your launcher / whatever you prefer. Remember we had a little era of no accelerometer so its a little bit foreign ATM :P
2) Calibrate your Gyroscope via the Settings -> Display menu

I was so just about to use the rotation lock bandaid.... thank you ever so much!

Works perfect. no problems during the flash. Just make sure whatever launcher you are running has the auto rotate turned on.

Can someone else who hasnt applied the mod download android sensor or something else that will interact with the gyroscope.

It seems like its working in reverse. left and right seems to control for and aft.

I could be crazy. So I would like someone else to confirm.
