OK. I just installed Elixir2 (it replaced Elixir), and the going into the sensors, the accelerometer seems OK, the Mgantetic field sensor gives values, but I'm not sure what they mean..
Using Smart compass, when I leave the phone on my desk (level surface), and rotate it.. the North changes every time I turn my phone. It's not pointing to the North...
Not sure what could be the difference between your phone and mine..
Just a straight THS 7.1 with no sensor fix and I flashed your latest kernel, wiping cache and Dalvik...
EDIT: I just borrowed a coworker's Moto Droid X, and using GPS status and other compass app, his compass behaves the same as mine!!
Maybe it's the environment, there are TONS of computers here at work and I have 2 computers and 3 monitors in my cube. Since his phone is behaving the same as mine, I guess I can say the compass works fine :P
Anything else I can do to help?
Thaks and keep it up!
