Re: Accelerometer stops working

I installed the maintenance update days ago and it is still working. At least it is definitely not a fix for all to uninstall it.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

I'm experiencing the problem only when I start the camera app, after every reboot autorotate works perfect until I try to take a picture.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

I agree because the first time the auto rotation stopped working was after a 4h drive with Google maps and music on. The phone was hot.

How to uninstall update for memory app ?

I guessed it cause by What's New, but it not the only one reason.
So, I uninstall the Google app, and reboot the phone, I have 8h stable.
