It didn’t work for me at first (Xperia 10 dual SIM) until I stopped Android support, but afterwards it started working.

Thans @ender for the hint. Restarting Android support from settings does make screen rotation work on my XA2+

It’s still a bug. After a restart the issue is back. So one has to Stop/Start AlienDalvik after every restart.

I was really hoping that Jolla would have fixed this before SFOS 3.4 goes public, but now that I found this workaround, I can live with it.
