6/3 - HTC Gingerbread Release ... Accelerometer Problem


6/3 - HTC Gingerbread Release ... Accelerometer Problem

Immediately after updating to Gingerbread, I started having problems with my accelerometer. 

Whenever I first unlock my phone, it now defaults to Landscape mode.  Then I have to manually turn off the screen, unlock again, and it opens in portrait mode like it should.

However, whenever I rotate the phone to switch to landscape mode, the phone won't return to portrait mode afterwards.  I'm forced to repeat the lock/unlock process in order for the phone to re-orient to portait mode. 

This is a nasty problem, and I don't know what do.  I tried re-calibrating the G-Sensor, but that doesn't correct the problem.

have you tried shutting it down and pulling the battery for a few minutes? usually fixes alot of the problems.
