Android apps do not honour the rotation lock settings on XA2. They rotate freely.

This is the same behaviour as was seen many years ago and then fixed.

Have the same issue with my XA2 Ultra.

Weird. On my XA2 Android apps don't rotate at all. When I forced OSMAnd~ to landscape in the app's own settings, the app froze, and cannot be started anymore.

Oh yes, also recognized this when switched to Stailfish X on Xperia XA2. I've disabled rotation for Android apps in Android settings. It's annoying that no Android apps rotate now, but it's still better than unwanted behaviours.

Indeed I had rotation disabled in Android settings. I can now confirm the Android subsystem doesn't follow the rotation settings in SailfishOS.

How do I access these Android settings? Do I need a specific app for this?
