Here's mine, direcltly after a reboot:
[root@(none) /]# cat /dev/urandom > /dev/fb0
cat: write error: No space left on device
[root@(none) /]# echo 1 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/rotate
[root@(none) /]# cat /dev/urandom > /dev/fb0
cat: write error: No space left on device
[root@(none) /]# /mnt/onboard/.python/
2048+0 records in
2048+0 records out
1048576 bytes (1.0MB) copied, 0.018657 seconds, 53.6MB/s
So it doesn't look like changing rotate did anything, **however** I did get a screen full of random noise, which is sort of encouraging.

Just to confirm I hadn't somehow changed stuff earlier, after this I rebooted again and got:
[root@(none) /]# cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/rotate
and directly after this you can still write random data to fb0 and have it display OK.
