this is confusing
I tried street view and when you tilt or move the phone the photosphere just moves and this indicates that there is a gyroscope inside this device
However, trying it on any 360 video on YouTube won't work and when I tried Z device app it says no Gyroscope in the device
So what gives ?

wuuut??? ha ha. Added that file and i do have access to youtube 360 features now, but it doesnt work quite as expected. up and down seems to work great side to side moves but in a strange way. maybe reverse (i tried flipping the phone) and the movement is limited. So there is a gyro and we just need the os to utilize it? or this some other sensor?

Edit: tried it again. Works great in Street view. Works okay with the one YouTube video I tried. Seems like side to side rotation is less sensitive in YouTube vs up and down. But it works!

Detailed instructions


Thanks! Just to have this on XDA (and in English) instead of having to link to another forum. Here are the instructions...

Hi all. I bring a tuto on how to enable the gyroscope in our Honor 5x

  1. Obtain root
  2. Download this file: https://mega.nz/#!pEEGFLbJ!scUWYUCZ_...4DyCT7jSWCW35E (Alternatively, download the file attached to the post and remove the .txt extension so it is named "android.hardware.sensor.gyroscope.xml")
  3. Using a root browser of your choice, move the file to /syste/etc/permissions
  4. Set the permissions to rw-r-r (644)
  5. Restart the phone.

Thanks, I'm thinking post on xda but my English is very poor and would be difficult for me to give a lot of support on issues created
