I'm trying your trick with rotating the display in config.txt instead of the buggy rotate option for the fbtft, but it doesn't seem to be affecting the db display. Sure, the HDMI image is rotated, but what's displayed on the module is still the same. Could it be because I'm using an ssd1351 instead of ili9163?

Ah, got it, I wasn't using fbcp, just the con2fbmap, that's why it wasn't working.

oooh OLED! I do like the brightness and contrast of a good OLED! It's just a shame they need so many extra bits on the pcb

Yeah, they need relatively high voltage. But I'm using a ready module, so that's not a problem for me. I decided to use an OLED mostly because it has much better viewing angles.

yeah, the biggest problem with the cheap TFT is the viewing angles. Hold it the wrong way and the colours totally flip!
