Howto: Landscape any screen

okay so i've seen people can landscape text but its kinda complicated how they explain so i will teach all you how to do it step by step so you'll not be so confused.. and you can flip anything once you figure this out


1. go get PHM reg edit http://www.phm.lu/products/PocketPC/RegEdit/
2. after you install it on your phone load it up and go here
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/GDI/Rotation
you will see HideOrientationUI click it you will see
Value data: 1
there is an down arrow press it once to make it go to 0
after wards hit OK.
3. at the left top of the screen there is a Start button click that
go to Settings in this screen click "Buttons"
you will see 1. Select a button: and 2. Assign a program
click the drop down look for this "<Rotate Screen>" yes its in arrows.
after that hit "ok" at the top right go to your texts and test it out to see if it worked press the very left bottom key on the phone its the answer button you have to hold it for 2-3 seconds and it should flip, if you want to return to normal mode just hold it again

this works for everything on the diamond it works for tomtom and all the other programs anyways good luck i hope it worked for you if not ill try to help you out.

edit: on the main screen if you do this it kinda glitches out but it can go back to normal if you hold the button..

Re: Howto: Landscape any screen

Yea i did this the first day i got my phone but i reverted it back because i need a button for microsoft voice. So what i need now is a way to add more buttons or at the very least the center button to the list of buttons.

+1 for the "bit buggy" thing... but I know that they are working on getting it more stable. Keep an eye out on this app as it will be sweet and have too many cool uses once it is running with more reliably.

It worked when I had the original sprint rom, however it was quite a bit buggy, it wouldn't auto start even with proper shortcuts placed (gave an error) and would only actually work about half the time. When I had the GT 1.04 rom, it didn't work, would always put me into the dialer for some reason (doesn't work with Telus roms) Haven't tried it on the Juicy 2.0 rom yet
