    Supports small, medium, and large tile. Tap and you're in the screen rotation settings, gets removed from memory instantly.

    Download "Screen Rotation"


    View post on my blog for more information/support.

    Enjoy!

    That's an unsupported address on my phone. Even if you did get it working, it isn't removed from memory. So when you press back, you'll go back to internet explorer, not the start screen.

    are you using the Application Deployment tool from the WP8 SDK?

    So, to get this XAP file, I need to install the WP8 SDK on my computer to get access to use the Deployment Tool?

    First, open any website, and select "add to favorites". From there, you can enter that script and save it. Works like a charm.

    To sideload an app or game, you'll need to have an SD card that contains one or more Windows Phone app files, also known as .XAP files. You can download .XAP files to your PC, and then move the files to the phone's SD card.

    But you can't pin IE favourites to Start, so what's the point of this? It doesn't save you any steps, in fact it takes more taps to go into IE, tap more, tap favourites and open that script than to use an app pinned to start.
    That being said, seeing as I can't actually deploy the xap on my phone (don't have Windows SDK because I don't have Windows 8 or a mini-sd slot), I would really like to be able to use the javascript workaround instead, if we could figure out a way to pin it to start...

    just download the app wiztiles (its very useful even before this trick)and you can make a custom tile redirect to that address.

    That would be worth buying instead of these worthless "battery apps" that drain the battery,
    don't update and show you how much your battery is discharging per hour in large
    part because the battery app is causing it. To have a shortcut to the battery saver
    which actually shows the correct % and where you can turn it OFF/ON is sorely needed.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure this wouldn't work... I believe the .xap published by the OP is directly from his own build, whereas the .xap files you download from the WP Store depend on a WP Store listing to successfully install.

    Thanks for the tip re wiztiles; didn't know that app.
    However, trying to make a browser tile that redirects to a javascript insertion does not work, at least not on my device.

    So, other than installing Windows SDK on a Windows 8 computer or having to open up the IE favourites list,
    does anyone have a way of getting the auto-rotate icon on the start screen or installing this xap (can someone post a link directly to the xapdeploy exe?)?

    The javascript sometimes doesn't work. It does not load when you are not on a website, or if you have a new tab. In order to deploy xaps, you must first have a developer account before you could even unlock your phone, and this also requires WP8 SDK (which is about 1.6GB).

    Yes and no. Marketplace apps are encrypted, There for you need to download to a SD card and when you attempt to install them, they will connect to the marketplace and confirm your licence for the app.

    Now, not trying to go into QUESTIONABLE content here. If the Dev does not upload it to the marketplace or finds away around the enctyption, you can "sideload" the app with the DEV kit and application deployment app in the SDK.

    The best/easiet way to tell if a XAP is unencrypted is to download it, rename myapp.xap to myapp.zip and try to open it in Windows or WInzip. If it opens, you can side load it with the dev kit, if it give an error "invalid file" or something like that, it is ENCRYPTED and you need to put it on a SD to install. XAP files are just ZIP files but, when it hits the marketplace it's encrypted.

    So everyone here knows, the attached link to the above XAP is unencrypted so you would need to Sideload it with the SDK...(BTW, The WP8 SDK requres Windows 8 x64 to run, so if your on Windows 7, your out of luck but, there is a hack on XDA how to install it on WIndows 7 BUT, it needs to be x64)

    Does this clear it up for everyone ?

    Want a tile to open screen rotation settings?
    No.
    I want a menu setting that does it.
    Or a toggle from a swipe down.
    Or a hard key combo - up/down volume together for instance.

    Buried in the settings or tiled on the menu are still no good.
