Re: Xperia Z auto-rotate not working

Hello,

 

I had the same problem, and after uninstall the "Hello Kitty AR effect" (don't laugh please!), and restarted the phone, the auto rotation works again! So if you installed some new AR effect in teh past days, try to uninstall it...

Hope I could help,

Yup, uninstalling AR effect seemed to fix it. For now at least.

Auto rotate broke for me on Z3 Compact with the last update.

 

Fixed using the boot to safe mode then restart again trick from page 1.

Re: Xperia Z auto-rotate not working

So is Sony going to fix this?
I have discovered if I turn the phone off and on, do a reset or turn off google voice keyboard thingy, it rotates for a while. Then it goes back to not rotating again!
REALLY IRRITATING Sony! Far from acceptable.
