[SOLVED] Android 4.4.4 (v4.6) Rotate to Portrait mode

Unread postby dragi » Wed Apr 19, 2017 11:28 pm

I am using the latest available Android - v4.6 on XU4 with Vu5.
However I am not able to get Portrait working nice.
I am reaching the situation like on picture 5 on the following link
https://codewalkerster.blogspot.kr/2015/06/hdmi-portrait-on-odroid-xu3lollipop-cm.html
but there is no Auto-rotate option.

Should I install something additionally in order Portrait mode to work on KitKat?

Btw, it seems that the ODROID Utility overrides boot.ini, so now the new options for touch on vu7 (I think) are missing from it. I'm still new to this, so I don't know if this is a feature or an issue.

Sorry. It is impossible portrait mode when used low resolution.
It can do portrait mode in 1280x720 resolution .

But this is the maximum resolution supported by Vu5.
Is portrait going to work with this display on Android 5.1.1 or 7.1?

Thanks, I'll try that.
I don't see the buttons bar (back, home ...) but I will check myself.

So this works.
Besides installing it, I also had to go to the settings of Nova launcher and set the layout to Auto - otherwise it behaved the same as the native launcher.

There was still the problem of buttons bar missing (back, home, recent apps)
I fixed this by setting the density to 120, as proposed here:
http://odroid.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id= ... odroid-vu7
However, I had some issues making /system read-write, so the way I did it was:
Code: Select all
adb remount
adb pull /system/build.prop
(editing the file in Notepad++)
adb push build.prop /system/build.prop
adb shell reboot


Thanks for the support!
