[Qi - SHR-U/All?] Pink line of death

It's not omnewrotate. If you're lucky, using omnewrotate may help
you recover that screen state.

All omnewrotate does is infer a position from the accelerometers and
using the xrandr API to rotate the screen


So if you want a culprit you can look at libxrandr, although I'm looking
quite more seriously at that damned glamo chip.

As to your last question, just chmod 000 /etc/X11/Xsession.d/*omnewrotate
