Ok all i bring you a new Mod that will make your rosie Launcher auto rotate to landscape when you turn your tbolt to the side :)

I am making the assumpution you all know how to decompile and recompile the rosie.apk if you dont read up and come back to this thread.

Ok so you have the Rosie.apk decompiled already open up the AndroidManifest.xml with your favorite text editor, and look for this bit of code:

Code:
android:screenOrientation="nosensor"


ok here comes the tricky part, if you arent sitting down you better. change "nosensor" to "sensor"

so it looks like this:

Code:
android:screenOrientation="sensor"


recompile and bam you are done!

get it back on to your phone and enjoy landscape in all its glory!


a few hints, I chose with spare parts to keep the launcer in memory seems to help with redraws. also dont for get to enable auto rotation!! enjoy. if I helped out in any way just give me a thanks!!




*Known Issues
Cant turn rotation off.

For those of you having issue or dont want a themed rosie here is a stock Rosie.apk in a update.zip flash through clockwork. I have only tested it on Das BAMF so use accordingly. if you have a themed rosie you will lose the theme. I assume no responsibility for what this does to your Launcher make a back up before flashing!!!

Enjoy

Would it be possible to post the modified Rosie.apk for those of us noobs that don't feel comfortable with de/compiling?

all your rom devs im sure will either include this or have an option for if not, let me know. and ill get one one up. Or you can go down load My Linear theme which has it done already ;)

Thank you vey much for this, This is what I have been waiting for.

Now the issue it that the Thunderbolt Sense widgets don't all support Landscape...
Unbelievable!

The Contact Widget and the Calendar Widget are distorted and they don't fill the screen in Landscape.

Also, something interesting, the phone doesn't rotate to landscape unless you launch it from the Car Panel (not that it really needs to but interesting).

I can't believe HTC would make so many different widgets, they all seem to work fine on the Desire Z ROMs.

I installed the Perfect Storm and I see in my apps I have "rosie settings"

When I tap on it...is shows the internet icon and has a button to the right that seays "select" when I press it...all my apps come up.....

I am not really sure how this works.....can someone enlighten
me?

Two things: can I go into rosie through rootexplorer and change this, or is it going to f with the file? And do you know how I can ditch this personalize button?
3 things I guess: thanks for the gps remover!

    I'll do a little research on making an update.zip, I have a hard time with the update binary as I have no idea how to create one on my mac.

    grab mine from the OP and swap out the APKs....Done
