Auto-Rotate can configure the registry settings of built-in Samsung's RotationSupport.exe.
This app is not resident, so, it consumes memory only when you are configuring rotation support.

* I have moved this topic, check below *

Download

AutoRotate-1.0.CAB
AutoRotate-1.0.1.CAB
AutoRotate-1.0.2.CAB
AutoRotate-1.0.3.CAB

Beta Testers

If you have an unsupported SAMSUNG device, please, try the following:

1. Install the latest Auto-Rotate cab;
2. Unzip RotationSupport.zip and copy RotationSupport.exe to the \Windows folder on cell phone;
3. Open a registry editor and create \HKLM\Software\AutoRotation;
4. Under that, create DWord value Count with 0;
5. Run an application like Notes.
6. With Notes opened, tap Start and tap Auto-Rotate.
7. Tap Add, choose Notes, tap OK.
8. Test if you can rotate Notes.
9. Feedback

After successful feedbacks, i will make cabs for other samsung devices.

Hi!
First of all, thanks for your feedback.
If i'am right, that app on modaco is a g-sensor implementation from strach. My effort is an app to configure current Samsung support to auto-rotate (RotationSupport.exe).

About the error, can you show me the exception? Can you make a screen-shot?

Also, can you tell me the version of your ROM?

I have the same problem. I have been using OrientationSetting for a while but it's just not working correctly. For instance, if I'm in a program and have the phone in landscape everything looks as it should, in landscape mode. But, if I switch to a different application that is also configured to autorotate, instead of remaining in landscape it autorotates to portrait! I have to then turn the phone right side up then back down to autorotate. This is no biggie with normal use but if in the car and using the phone as the media device, if I need to do anything else like take a call or whatever it rotates to portrait. Very annoying! Anyway, I hope this program can help resolve the conflict by using the built in support and not using a 3rd party mem resident app.

The error screen for me simply says Error, and some info about an unexpected error in autorotationconfig.exe, quit restart and so on. Then at the bottom it says your device isn't supported. I have an Omnia II from Verizon.

Any help would be great. Thanks

Good, seems that the way I check the device works only for GSM (GT-I8000).

In case of Verizon i920, i will appreciate if you send me a registry value.
If you have any registry editor, please send me the value at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Ident\OrigName.

Thanks for your feedback.
