Evo Update 2.3.3. - Compass Problem

Just adding my compass or apps the need to use a compass do not work on my just updated EVO 4G to Ver 2.3.3. Must be the beta people only use the freakin smart phone as a phone, No one noted that the compass don't work in google navagation?

still no update or acknoledgement from sprint or htc?

This appears to be an android problem... the people at xda-developers say to go to this link and star the problem so google fixes it.

Yep.. same problem with Evo, gingerbread & compass. I first noticed it while using HeavensAbove to track the IIS. I tried using a couple different compass programs to calibrate but no success.

I wish now I hadn't upgraded.

Evo Update 2.3.3. - Compass Problem

MMS hasn't been working for me and after working Sprint technical support, I had to take my EVO into a Sprint store.  It finally came down to doing a factory reset to try to get MMS working.  Fixed my MMS problem but now my compass is not working and I can't get it calibrated.  It's really bad when I'm facing north and the phone says I'm facing south.  A fix would be nice.

I sent an email to HTC. I called Sprint. They acted like they'd never heard of the problem and told me to take the phone to the nearest Sprint store. (Perhaps those guys can code up a fix.)

It might also be a good idea to tweet to HTC and Sprint.

I seem to be getting the same response from HTC and Sprint even after directing them to the bad code. My devices are used in an enterprise situation therefore; they have left me with no other option except to actively seek a refund and move on to other options.

From the link you provided, Google should be aware of the issue.  I've also posted a link to this thread on our internal forums...will let you know if I hear anything.

Thanks. Even though a fix for this might not be under Sprint's control it helps to know someone is aware, and I appreciate you taking the time to respond.

Evo Update 2.3.3. - Compass Problem

Ran a couple quick checks (indoors only) after applying the 4.24.651.1 patch this morning, and both Google Sky Map and the catch.com compass app seem to be working again. Does this mean we can blame the Netflix bug for our compass problems?
