Lightbulb [FIX][ALL CM10 ROMS!!] finally , fix for the compass in google maps !!!

Hi everyone !

I want to share with you today the fix for that crazy bug , it's so simple it just need a file replacing process !
0- be sure to make a nandroid buckup
1- download the libsensorservice.zip file attached below , extract it and place libsensorservice.so on your sdcard
2- copy it to /system and set permission to rw-r--r-- [using root explorer or a similar app] .
3- now copy it to /system/lib replace when asked .
4- reboot

OR

just flash cwm-flashable-fix-compass-cm10.zip via cwm !

WAITING for feedbacks

click thanks if it works for you as well

I have a question. You say, to copy the ilibsensrservice.so to system and then to system/lib. Why to not copying it directly to system/lib and skipping step 2?

it is better to change permissions before replacing the file

sorry but i'm not very expert in how making a ( compatible ) flashable zip , I just used the "easy way" to make that one , if it's not working then replace it following the steps in 1st post , don't worry , it is very easy , and nothing is going to happen just make sure you have a backup of your rom

Stock Rom doesn't have problems with the compass on Google maps. Flashing this thing won't do anything on your Rom. It is aimed to fix the above problem, only on cm10 based roms so it's useless for your stock Rom :P
