Orientation change and setRender

 I've a region on an activity that uses GLSurfaceView. When the
Activity is resumed, I call the setRenderer and then the content of
the screen. They work fine. But, the problem arise when I change
orientation (configurationChange.) Upon orientation change, I need to
change the layout. After orientation change, surfaceChanged is getting
called. However, even when I call GLSurfaceview.requestrender,
Renderer.onDrawFrame is not getting called.
What are all the things I need to do when there is an orientation

1. Mounted SD Card Access

Can an Activity still have read/write access to an SD card after it
has been mounted to USB storage (connecting USB and selecting Mount
from the resulting notification screen).  In other words, does
mounting the SD card lock out system access until USB is disconnected.

I need to create a live channel between an application and an external
USB device and I'm running out of options.


2. Reading sensor values directly without having to use/wait for onSensorChanged

I am sure they are just returning the most recently received values.

Note that the sensors can very well be different hardware parts, that
generate updates on different schedules.  For example the accelerometer and
compass are very different types of hardware, and it would be a mistake to
think that they are intrinsically tied together in their data reporting.
