Thanks for the reply odorid. I am running the latest Android OS 4.4.4 Kitkat alpha 4.5.
I would like to rotate only the digitizer and not the screen. The screen I am using is a chimei innolux (N070ICG) which has a short bezel at the top that works perfectly with the short overhang in the housing the screen is going in. The digitizer on the other hand has a large bezel of which the lower portion has been cut with a glass cutter and fits the short overhang of the housing. The top part is left as is due to the fact that the remaining portion will still be too big for the short overhang in the housing. Thus the need for rotation.
The odroid-utility I have does not give me the option to rotate the screen when I choose landscape or portrait mode (not that is going to help my needs right now).
