ScreenOrientation not working in Ionic View

I need my app to be portrait only, except for one page that needs to be landscape only (full-screen video).

I’ve been looking for a solution for hours, and I’m about to have a nervous breakdown.

I have this plugin: cordova-plugin-screen-orientation 1.4.2 "Screen Orientation"

My code:

import {Component} from '@angular/core';
import {NavController, Platform} from 'ionic-angular';
import { ScreenOrientation } from 'ionic-native';

    selector: 'page-home',
    templateUrl: 'home.html'

export class HomePage {

constructor(public navCtrl: NavController, public platform:Platform) {
        //check if on mobile device to avoid ionic serve browser errors 
        if ('cordova')){

I also have this line in my config.xml file:
<preference name="Orientation" value="portrait"/>

When I run my code in the iOS emulator, this all seems to work fine.
When I test the app in Ionic View (both iOS and Android), orientation doesn’t get locked.

Another issue I’m having is quite similar: In config.xml I have this line:
<preference name="StatusBarStyle" value="blackTranslucent" />
The status bar color changes in the iOS emulator, but on my iOS device it doesn’t do anything.

My system information:

Cordova CLI: 6.5.0 
Ionic Framework Version: 2.0.0
Ionic CLI Version: 2.2.1
