Patch: Allow any orientation except inverted portrait for SailfishOS apps

Your rating: None Average: 5 (4 votes)

Allowing any orientations except "inverted portrait" for SailfishOS apps even the app developer didn't allow it, to both enable free rotate and avoid mistakenly making/answering calls on upside-down phone.


Please note that some apps may be unstable on some orientations.

Patch of patch! Thanks @coderus for allowing me to make this.

Please ignore my previous comment. It seems the missing file has now been restored in place by Jolla. Thank you anyway...

First of all, a big thank you for all your work (I use a couple of your keyboard layouts) Thos patch worked very well on my Xperia X with SFOS Before updating to I removed it (disabling was probably enough, but just in case...). The update was successful, but now it does not install any more. It says: File './non-oss/noarch/sailfish-tutorial-data-0.2.3-1.8.1.jolla.noarch.rpm' not found on medium ''.

Failed to enable. Most probably conflicting with an existing patch. Trying to find out which one.

EDIT: it was "UI Rotate Free" (as expected)
