Some time ago i wanted to play need for speed but my car started turning left. So i decided to do an accelerometer calibration but on CyanogenMod based roms that option doesn't exist. I saw that many users got this problem so i am making this little guide. Here is how to do:

1. Go to s advance advanced settings and check use calibration data under General > accelerometer.

2. Place your phone in a horizontal position and click calibrate.

3. Download this app from play store https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.Test_Sensors

4. Open it, press menu button and click on other available sensors.

5. Click on 3 axis accelerometer
6. It will ask you if you want to calibrate it, place your phone in a horizontal position and click on yes. It will take 5-10 seconds.

7. Go to s advance advanced settings and check use calibration data under General > accelerometer.

8. Place your phone in a horizontal position and click calibrate.

Thumbs up DroidPad
Thanks! It works!

Now i can use DroidPad with the accelerometer!!! Before this only DroidPad 2.0 Beta worked, but it is a little old, the "Normal" DroidPad didn't work, but now it does
