Has anyone also Problems with the inbuilt Compass of the One? Lately I wanted to use Google Maps while walking and discovered the Compass is working within Google Maps. So i tried a few other Compass Apps, where some do work and others dont.

I did create a Issue on this, but it seems I'm the only one with this Issue so far: https://jira.cyanogenmod.org/browse/BACON-731

Im on stock CM11S, so it cant be any Mod / Custom Rom / Kernel Problems.

Lightbulb Compass issue related to encryption
Hi,

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.

Bye,
Till

My Phone is encrypted NOW, but I really dont know if it was back when I encoutered that the Compass does not work with Google Maps.
I will try to Factory Reset if Ive got the Time and see if this does something to Google Maps. I wanted to try CM11 (without S) anyway.

Prior to encryption, my compass was just way off. Generally around 25 degrees counter clockwise. Now that the phone is encrypted, the compass doesn't work at all.

Anyone know if these issues are present on the "Vanilla" CM11 snapshot and/or nightly roms direct download from the CM site?
