Official 7" Pi Touchscreen not calibrated with B+

I use several 7 inch touchscreens with model B. Bought 6 B+ and 6 new touchscreens only to find out the calibration is way off.
It should be plug and play. I tried to use xinput-calibrator but, as usual, that was useless and did nothing. Has anyone had this issue>?

Flipping Image 180 degrees

I have a pi3, with an official 7" TouchScreen, I need to rotate the screen 180 degrees.
I have tried the lcd_rotate=2 but that only changes my touch input.
I am currently running FullpageOS image as an OS.
