    Same issue on Ultra Tab C - is the Boox Service Team working on this, considering it has affected multiple devices for over a year or more? When can we expect a fix?  The Boox devices seem great but they are worthless if the basic features don't work correctly.

    I switched on auto-rotate in my experiments prior to reporting the problem.

    I submitted a report via Feedback.

    Today, also my wife's new Note Air 2 started showing the same symptoms - auto-rotate not working intermittently.

    Also, I searched for similar issues on the web, and found a few reports of the same issue - without resolution

    The same thing happens to me. After no more than a week use it stopped working. The first time it had mysteriously switched itself to manual rotation. I selected again the automatic one and it worked for 3 or three minutes. Then it stopped, although in the "rotate" window the autorotate option is on.

    This is still not fixed and I am seeing this same issue in my new Air 2. Basically it just decides to not respond to rotation whenever it has been idle for a while.

    I have the same issue on my new Tab X. A reboot solved the problem. When the problem shows up again, I will submit a bug report.

    It looks like this is an old Android 11 bug. According to this article: https://www.makeuseof.com/auto-rotate-not-working-android/, we shouldn’t hold edges of our screen while rotating the device. 

    When auto rotation stops working, I set mine Boox Tab Ultra C first in manual portrait orientation and then I enable auto rotation again. I am careful not to rotate the device with my fingers on the edge of the screen. This way I restart Android’s auto rotation service and I skip time consuming reboot process. I hope this helps.
