In my camera application, I use the following code to change the
screen orientation.

Parameters params = mCamera.getParameters();
params.set("orientation", "portrait");

It worked for the most of devices.
However, after updating my NexusOne to 2.2, the above code does not
Is there any other way to change the orientation?

The only way to change the orientation is to change the orientation of
an Activity.
But, I don't want to do this because I have other controls like Text
or Button on Screen.

If somebody knows the solution for this, please help me!!

It worked for "most"? And that was good enough for you?

What does "does not work!!" mean?

 See android.hardware.Camera.setDisplayOrientation (int degrees)

This is the approved way to set the camera orientation as of V2.2.
Please note that this only works for still images, videos will still
record in landscape orientation.
