    Default Does anybody know how to enable the accelerometer on all sides?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm still getting use to using android OS, and I'm wondering if there's a way to have the accelerometer rotate the screen when turn the screen backwards? This is just a nit pick, but I miss just change the whole thing in a complete 360 degree and have the accelerometer follow!

    If I'm not mistaken... it is a hardware limitation.

    I believe that Froyo adds rotation in all directions.

    Very easy to do with custom ROMs. Ask your favorite ROM developer to add the feature.
