    A500 ics rotation problem solved!


    1-Install free AutoRotate Switch app.

    2-Click on the app to switch ON auto-rotate.

    3-Turn the A500 off.

    4-Turn the A500 on.

    5-Auto-rotation works perfectly!

    :-)

If an app only runs in one direction it will flip at that time.

    This does nothing more than your screen orientation lock switch does. It would only be useful if your orientation lock switch were physically broken, so you could possibly use it to test for that condition, but you do not need an app on the a500 to do this if your hardware is intact.

    I have tested this app, and observed that it apparently uses the OrientationListener or OrietationEventListener class to disable and reenable events from the sensor. It cannot resolve any a500 ICS related screen rotation problems unless caused by a broken switch.

    This appears to be an advertisement by the app developer.
