    OK. So I noticed today that the iPhone does not have a landscape splash. It always starts in portrait. This is on Apple's end I realize this. But I also noticed that in AppBuilder if you rotate after you open the app the screen still rotates and keeps the same portrait splash (needless to say it's ugly and nothing lines up).

    So is there some mechanism I can use to disable orientation change until the deviceready event executes? (to essentially turn orientation back on during deviceready) ?

    As I see there is problem with the plugin, we'll do our best to fix it.
    But until then I suggest to hook  "onorientationchange" javascript event:

    function changeOrientation() {
        switch (window.orientation) {
            case 0:
                // portrait, home bottom
            case 180:
                // portrait, home top
            case -90:
                // landscape, home left
            case 90:
                // landscape, home right
    window.onorientationchange = function () {
        setTimeout(changeOrientation, 1000);
