How to enable HDMI Screen Rotation?

Postby t20004571 » Sat Oct 27, 2012 10:32 pm

I have an application is portrait and need displayed through HDMI onto a screen.
The problem is MK808 always lock on Landscape, and the application will automatically scaling in to the center of the screen.
Is this a way to let the MK808 rotating to Portrait?
sorry for my poor english.

thanks.

Were you able to find a way to do this? I have an application I would like to use this device for, but need to have the screen and all apps set to the portrait orientation. I don't need auto switching, a software selection would work. If anyone knows how to do this, it would be a great help.

Thanks

They disabled any rotation in the latest ROMs completely! I have figured out how to turn it back on but am still testing it.
Stay tuned I may have a fix for those that want rotation. Just need time to finishing the smali code.

I have rotation issue with my Google music player, some time it doesn't rotate to the landscape mode.
It look like portrait mode that stretch to landscape view...it look weird..
Sometime it work perfectly, someone don't..

Any one have the same issue? & how can I force it to be in landscape?

any success with the changes you were trying to add to make this work? Please let me know how I can give your changes a try to re-enable the rotation.

Hello Bob,

I would also like to have the ability to rotate the MK808 to have it in portrait instead of landscape.
Have you been able to find a solution to this ?

Thanks,
Tom.

Hi guys,

A little update on the tests I have done so far without success :(
At least I hope it will save time to other trying to achieve the same.

- Retrieved the framework-res.apk file from the stick (in system/framework) via ES explorer in root mode (could also be done with adb)
- Used apktool to uncompile the .apk
- modify two values in "res/values/bools.xml" file from the uncompiled .apk :
<bool name="config_allowAllRotations">true</bool>
<bool name="config_reverseDefaultRotation">true</bool>
Both were set to "false" and I changed them to "true", it's mainly trial and error method as I don't know the exact underlying behaviors ..
- repack the .apk with apktool
- replace the framework-res.apk on the stick with the one modified
- reboot
- install a few "rotation app" from the market to try to force "portrait" mode

None of this worked :(

Any clue ?
Thanks,
Tom.

That wont do it. I did find the code where they disabled it. It is is services.jar.

I have it working now but just have not had time to fix one more issue about it. But I do have rotation working again :)

Stay tuned I will release something soon.
