    I have a samsung tab s2 9,7″ and had a rotation problem (new tablet). I followed you instructions but after the Accessibility part, there it stops. I have no “system” label in the Settings. I had to revert back to factory default (losing everything and starting over). It restored the auto-rotation but I hope I don’t have to repeat the exercise.

    I have the same problems as Richard (previous message). I followed the instructions to Accessibility, then had no System label.
