    Interesting - perhaps things have changed with Android 4.2.

    I did find the stock launcher with rotation enabled: Jelly Bean 4.2.1 OTA Launcher with rotation (deodexed apk) flashable - xda-developers. Give that a try.
    Thank you very much for finding this. Your Google skills far surpass mine. I wasn't finding anything about it. Just to let everyone know, this does indeed work on the Nexus 4. The only problem is the flash able zip doesn't work and the guys instructions for pushing it don't work either.

    What I did was transfer the launcher2.apk to internal storage. Then went to root explorer, went to system/app and renamed the old launcher2.apk. Then while still in root explore went to where I transfered the new launcher2.apk and copy pasted it to system/app. After I rebooted, I had landscape home screen. To be safe you might want to install a 3rd party launcher first. I didn't I just did a backup before I went screwing around.

    I highly recommend it for anyone that would like to use the nexus 4 sideways while keeping the stock launcher.
