Compass issue related to encryption
I have the exact same problem. At first, I thought it might be a hardware defect, but that isn't the case.
Is you phone encrypted?
As bizarre as it sounds, it seems like the compass stops working as soon as the phone is encrypted. I did a factory reset - compass started working again. Encrypted phone again - compass no longer working.
Daniel, if your phone is encrypted as well, please update the jira ticket - it will help the developers reproduce / fix the issue.
