I used to use my zfold 5 opened at 90 degrees as a bedside clock. Latest update doesn't allow you to set lock screen to landscape mode. Anyone got a fix for this?

Check Galaxy Store as I saw an AOD update today. My AOD does go into landscape and the Auto Rotate settings do have AOD as an option

Press and hold Volume Up + Power buttons simultaneously till the device logo appears

When it logo appears, release Power button but hold the others few more seconds

Release all the buttons when Recovery Mode screen appears

You can use the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons to scroll up or down, and the Power button to select

Using the Vol Down rocker, select Wipe Cache Partition

Thank you sir I'd never set it from inside auto rotate settings. Prior I'd accessed it through settings, lock screen and set it to landscape. That worked thank you!
