PhoneGap/Android - Locking orientation to portrait

I have tried every method to lock the screen to portrait orientation but they simply do not work after testing the app via Adobe PhoneGap Build.

Firstly, I have modified the file to include at onCreate


Secondly, I have modified the config.xml file to include

<preference name="orientation" value="portrait" />

Thirdly, I have modified the Manifest file to include


None of the above are working.
