Clock KitKat compass problem

Hello everyone,

this is my first post so I cannot write (yet) in development thread.

I have installed CM 11.0 w/Espresso10++ 3.0.101. Compass was not working at all with 7-12 version, and now with 13-12 it turnsa around, but it is giving wrong position all the time. Anyone other with similar problems? Any solutions? My device is P3100.

Calibration (=rotation in all 3 axes) did not work.

Thank you in advance

brother cm 11 is still in initial stages so such problems will occur for sure so sit with your fingers crossed and see when it gets better and better
also write about this issue in cm11 thread
the dev will definitely think about the bug and will try to solve it


HIT THANKS IF I HELPED YOU

Of course, I am just curious if only I have this problem. As i mentioned, I still cannot write in CM11 dev topic (<10 posts).

Other than compass, bugs that I experience are:

- dialpad won't show when I click on it (I have to click once again)
- ES file explorer does not recognize sdcard1 as an external card (works on stock)

Everything other works perfectly. I am extremely satisfied with this ROM. I use compass daily so I would like to hear feedback from the other users.

Thank you in advance

I didn't get to mess with the rotation for the accell sensor but I will play with that next.

I tested with the app called smart compass, Go into settings and scroll to the bottom
there is an option for the accellerometer, uncheck it and you can get a compass reading.

If the app starts in a weird orientation you can select settings then landscape mode to change
the orientation of the app.

I still need to mess with the accellerometer setting; This is with the opensource sensor drivers,(...)
For ES file explorer does not recognize sdcard1 as an external card (works on stock):

Report it to ES Team too.

Compass works if you tell it to not use the accellerometer for now. Might have to use an app that gives
you that option. Also the problem is the the ES app. File manager HD works fine. ES has done that since
10.2. Use file manager hd it works fine, es doesn't seem to want to fix it.
