Using a basic setting change, you can now assign screen rotation with specific direction on any of your hardware buttons.
For Samsung Omnia II, that would mean going to Settings > Personal > Button to set the option. However, for devices running on Windows Mobile 6.5, that option is not available (since it runs on Samsung’s Setting). This registry edit will guide you to display the original/default setting.
Display/Unhide the default setting for Windows Mobile in order to access Settings > Personal > Button to set screen rotation.
