    Default Android 4.4 screen rotation problem.

    Hi, So I just updated to Kit Kat, and when I set my own custom background and then press the multitasking button (when the phone is in landscape), the wallpaper is cropped and there is a big box of black on the right.

    Sorry about the vagueness of the description, I find it really hard to describe, so here is a picture to show you guys what it looks like...

    From android 4.3 and even 4.2.2, the wallpaper auto-adjusts so that it fills up the screen when it is in landscape...

    Does anyone have this problem too?

    What should I do to solve this?

    Anyway, thanks in advance!

    I had a similar problem and a reboot fixed it

    Same on Nexus 7 2013 with KitKat.

    I usually use it in portrait so it's easy for me to ignore.

    Just follow this link and install this launcher file on your pc or from mobile browser direct to your mobile , then install easy installer from play store and go to securtiy and check mark on unknown sources column , ignore warning and click ok. If you have downloaded the launcher file in your pc then connect your phone to pc and copy and paste this file to your mobile . Open easy installer and it shows the launcher file , install it through easy installer and after installation click the done button. Now press home button and select the new launcher and WOW just experience the NEXUS 5 on your nexus 4.

    That has nothing to do with the question of the OP..

    What exactly entails a reboot? does that mean factory reset?

    Also, just FYI, I downloaded the GEL launcher from android police because I thought the 4.4 update was a disappointment. Google left out some features for the nexus 4, which makes me really sad...

    Regardless, the rotation problem described above also occurs for the stock launcher, too.

    A reboot is when you turn off your phone, and then turn it back on.

    Hi Jason , I have found a solution - install a free app from playstore named PicSpeed Wallpapers 500,000 - after installing it - open gallery - select desired picture for wallpaper- click menu from upper right corner - click set picture as - click option set as wallpaper ( with picspeed app logo) - click set and your wallpaper is set . I found if I set my wallpaper with this method then it adjusts itself in landscape mode . Just give a try, Good luck. Take care. By the way this app is also great for new HD wallpapers.

    It seems to be a problem the the OS itself. I've had other media, including videos do the same thing when I rotate my Nexus 7.
