the c3100's cursor pad was rotated 90 degrees (up/down act as left/right on the screen, but correct if the zaurus screen were ripped off and fitted portrait mode), so I installed the rotateview app, and then the cursor pad rotated as well as the screen, so that now right moves cursor up!

any quick fixes?

thanks!

I wonder if it's possible to run /system/bin/rotatefb somehow instead of the service call window 18 i32 1 command

that's great, maybe cortez could fix that in the replacement c3xxx image he's building for the next alpha?
(nudge, hint!)

The uploading of a new C3x00 version is delayed a bit, but I'll try to incorporate the key changes tonight.
I haven't been able to set the rotation to landscape on default so that's left to be fixed also.

excellent news, thanks; your rotate app is plenty good enough for now!
