Re: How to fix Torch’s screen in Vertical position only?



If I recall correctly, there is no on-device setting to override this feature. But, there were apps developed for the Storm line of BB's that could do this (StormTilt?)...you could research those and see if the developers have or intend to port the app to the Torch?


Good luck!

you want to try Six Tools




This will run on any device running OS 6, some features such as portrait lock and slider sounds will only show up when run on a Torch. Also includes backup/restore settings to SDCard.
