For some reason, the auto rotate function has stopped working. I'm rooted on a stock 4.4 Rom. The situation occurred after I was removing some bloat ware using titanium backup. I first assumed I must have dropped it, causing sine damage to one or more of the sensors. I've downloaded numerous sensor testing apps and checked *#0*#, and saw that all the sensors are working (or reporting they're working at least.). What can I do to get auto screen rotation working again, without having to use a third party app?
Alright, you're rooted, running a stock kernel and everything is in alignment (baseband, ROM build number, &c).
Try factory resetting your device, and perhaps installing a stock DeOdex or Odex rom on the dev forum, and see if that doesn't get you back.
I appreciate you showing the screen, but it provides some info that many do not state in their initial post.
I assume you've checked all of the normal places in settings (i think there is a toggle in the pulldown menu for autorotae on/off)).
Good luck, definitely sucks.
I've done a factory reset, and the problem persists. I've made sure the screen rotate toggle is on, and in apps like YouTube where orientation is forced into landscape, if I turn the phone horizontal, the orientation will change. It seems like I just can't get the screen to change into landscape automatically.
I just tried the youtube app, When I put the phone in lanscape orientation, there is no change in the screen. If I tap the enlarge button for the youtube app, it will be forced into landscape mode. From there, when I put the phone back into portrait position, it will automatically change, as if the phone was working normally.
