Default Accelerometer Calibration?

I have noticed that ever since I've had my atrix, the accelerometer has been off by a few degrees to the left. Does anyone know if there is a way to calibrate it? Maybe someone who is really familiar with android could tell me where to look in order to modify the values for the default calibration... I have no idea where to start.

Anyone else have this issue?

Don't see any such option on cm7.
Is that on the stock rom or some other blur based rom?

DONATE TO ME
I don't know about other ROMs, but CM-based ROMs don't have this option.
To calibrate the compass, install and run GPS Status & Toolbox, then go to MENU > Tools > Compass calibration.

Are you serious? You revive a dead thread to say you have the same problem and to request an app when ravilov's post has a link to an app?
