i'm just responding to confirm that some apps also don't work
correctly with omnewrotate installed
mokoeightball is one of them;
after installing omnewrotate and rebooting, shaking the phone does not
work with mokoeightball
apps like the ledclock ( displays
by default in landscape mode, but turning the phone to landscape makes
the teks adapt itself and displays in normal mode
