You do not need to download any special apps or anything to do this on your Android or Gphone unlike some other users may suggest. Simply following this tutorial, you can use these steps to enable auto-rotate:

  1. Turn on your Android device and hit the "Menu" button.
  2. Now touch the "Settings" button on the bottom-right corner.
  3. Select "Display"
  4. Select the check-box for "Auto-rotate screen"

First you need to get a "modded" version of the operating system: http://modmygphone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7211
Then, follow: http://www.droidsans.com/droidsans-tweak-tools

Depending on the current version of your os, you may not be able to do it.

I know there's a patch that can be added to allow the gphone auto rotate, I'm not sure where to get it and how well it works.

I added a video that demonstrates gphone auto rotate.
Enjoy.

Auto rotate


Sometimes there is a second option called screen lock that keeps the screen from rotating even though you have auto rotate checked. Check thru your setting to see if you can find this.

Screen will not auto rotate


go into your apps menu and go into the app called "settings", then from there go into "display", and there will be an option to "auto-rotate screen" - now click the check box next to it, make sure it is checked on, and that should solve your problem :)

Windows cannot find gphone.exe??


Gphone.exe is a file that an instant-message worm infects. This worm spreads through Google chat and Yahoo! Messenger. This “Gphone.exe” worm disables your antivirus security software, and downloads more crapware onto your PC.

To remove do this:
1. Block Gphone.exe sites: http://rnd009.googlepages.com/
2. Stop Gphone.exe processes: %Windir%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%System%\DEFAULT_NOT_SET.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\gphone.exe
%Temp%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%DriveLetter%\New Folder.exe
%DriveLetter%\gphone.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\gphone.exe Get rid of Gphone.exe files:

%DriveLetter%\autorun.inf
%Windir%\Tasks\At1.job
[ROOT FOLDER]\autorun.inf
C:\disk.txt
%System%\autorun.ini
%System%\setting.ini
%Temp%\log_[TIME AND DATE].txt


3. Delete Gphone.exe registry keys using regedit from start - run:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\WorkgroupCrawler\Shares\”shared” = “[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\”Yahoo Messengger” = “%System%\gphone.exe”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\”Shell” = “Explorer.exe gphone.exe”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Schedule\”AtTaskMaxHours” = “0′
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Schedule\”NextAtJobId” = “2′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\”DisableTaskMgr” = “1′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\”DisableRegistryTools” = “1′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\”NofolderOptions” = “1′
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Default_Page_URL” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Default_Search_URL” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Search Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Start Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Start Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel\”HomePage” = “1′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel\”HomePage” = “1′ Note: In any Gphone.exe files I mention above, “%UserProfile%” is a variable referring to your current user’s profile folder. If you’re using Windows NT/2000/XP, by default this is “C:\Documents and Settings\[CURRENT USER]” (e.g., “C:\Documents and Settings\JoeSmith”).

Gphone Roaming Problem


i would typically tell you to disable the international data roaming, but after reading that article im having second thoughts as well. but does that scare you enough to leave your phone home?

if you really need to take the g1 overseas, i would almost remove the data package from your rateplan and just add it again once you get home. that should prevent any data overages because by removing it, you no longer have the ability to browse the web except on wifi....

only downside is, that if you happen to lock yourself out of your handheld to the point of it asking you to log in again, you will need the g1 dataplan added once again to be able to log in. keep in mind, that can take up to 48 hours to provision, so if you decide to remove it....make a mentle note DO NOT LOCK YOURSELF OUT :)

or, you could always use a different phone! ;)

Maybe you can try to reset the phone back to factory settings (you'll lose all your data!!): 'Home' > 'Settings' > 'SD card & phone storage,' then select 'Factory data reset.'
