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?

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?
