    5.5" display with Pi3+ PiCorePlayer image doesnt flip

    I connected this display to my raspberry and copied the following lines into the config.txt file as recommended by the manufacturer:

    max_framebuffer_height=1920
    max_usb_current=1
    config_hdmi_boost=10
    hdmi_group=2
    hdmi_force_hotplug=1
    hdmi_mode=87
    hdmi_timings=1080 1 26 4 50 1920 1 8 2 6 0 0 0 60 0 135580000 3

    I need the display in landscape format hence a 90 or 270 degree turn, thatĺs why I added this line below the above to the config.txt:

    display_rotate=1 #1: 90; 2: 180; 3: 270

    When I reboot the display stays completely black.

    I am using the piCorePlayer image.

    Any advice ?

    OK I managed to get it turned 90 by reducing the resolution of the display (not in config.txt) but the GUI of the piCorePlayer.
