Hi, I find that my nexus 7 continually reorients itself to the portrait lockscreen when powered off and on. It often gets stuck like this for a while. I find it very annoying. Is there a fix? Is there a landscape lock screen? Thanks

The lock screen is portrait only for the moment, even in Paul's ROM. He did say he was going to work on a rotating one.

Came across this at XDA a 5 minute job with ES file explorer and seems to work great:

Requires root access obviously.

You can use one of the rotation apps from Google Play, I use Set Orientation which in auto mode rotates the lock screen properly.

There's a conflict that makes video playback very laggy, tho...

i've changed to "ultimate rotation control" which has per-app settings, and as long as you force landscape for MX Player, it works fine. it allows lockscreen rotation too
