***Version 2.78 - There is a new version for download as of June 17th '09. This version includes the following:

- Import/Export buttons functions fixed
- Exporting and Resetting defaults issue fixed
- No more duplicate exceptions allowed (caused crash in older versions)
- More stop points on the Sensitivity adjustment bar

- Fixes from previous version (v2.77):

- the error found in this post and the error found in this post AND the error found in this post!
- fix for the music issue
- a sensitivity adjustment bar
- ability to define your own default exceptions (for personal use or for ROM's)
- user can choose to add a toggle link added to the programs menu. You can then link this to hardware buttons via other programs.
- & many other fixes that were brought up during the past few months.


Download the latest version of changeScreen (v2.78) here!

I will update the screenshots when I get the change (hopfully soon)...

NOTE: fix for Topaz Dialer causing changeScreen to stop rotating:

The issue about crashing gyrator, changescreen, flip-it and whatever sensor app after making a call with topaz dialer it's because this enabled option by default.

HKLM\Software\HTC\PHONE\FaceDownMuteRing
change to 0

My thanks to jpl69 for that post!

NOTE: fix for full screen apps showing title bar after rotation!
Read the post with the fix here
Thanks to Claus72 for the research and the post!

Gyrator is a great app... with a load of functions but I found that I didn't really use any of them except the screen tilt/Gsensor function.

That said one of the problems I had with Gyrator is that it always stayed in my open apps which is not THAT big a deal, but would just annoy the crap out of my OCD brain!

Anyway I decided to make a different version for myself and anyone else who JUST wants the Screen tilt function.

This appliaction will:
- allow you to stop and start the screen switch as you please
- start up with your device if desired
- allow exceptions (Opera is an exception by default because it already uses the Gsensor)
* I recommend if you use Tomtom to add that in a well (to avoid the screen switching when you hit a bump!)
- NOT show up in the running programs list! (Most important thing to me!)
- You also do NOT need to install .NETCF 3.5 to use this. It should run fine on 2.0!

Version 2.5
Download changeScreen version v2.5 here!

Version 2.1 is still available if 2.5 doesn't work for some reason
Download changeScreen version v2.1 (2) here!

The BETA is still available if 2.1 doesn't work for some reason
Download changeScreen.cab v2.1 BETA here!

Version 1.54 is still available for those of you who like the older version better!
Download changeScreen.cab v1.54 here

Damn, do you mean the screen got stuck like frozen or just wouldn't rotate back (like the app crashed)?

Works like a charm for me after I fixed the exclusion list. Rotates on everything that I want it to rotate on

600GOL,

Would like to say thanks. Just the thing I needed. All is well with my HD (had to soft-reset first--was crashing, returning to "Home"). Although Gyrator has its merits, it was too technical for me (simpleton and all). Your son has been fed.

--Cheers

Dude, thats great to hear! And I can't tell you how much I appreciate the donation! Any problems let me know. I'm working on a new version that will (hopefully) fix the "issues" that a few people have with version 1.54. I'll update the thread once its done!

Thanks again...

It worked well at first but then for unknown result when i tried my phone in landscape mode it immediately went back to portrait mode . I used 1.17 and 1.18 rom of pzuchel all gave me the same result. I'm happy to donate only when the soft is stable but i try all of the rotating software with the same result like above

If none of the apps work it MUST be something in the ROM... but what?! I really wish I had an HD so I could attepmt a solution! but unfortunately i don't...

I'm doing things a little differently in the new version i'm building. Maybe check back here in a few days for the new version and try that...
