Re: Accelerometer stops working

Webwude. That turning off one feature to make another feature function correctly is not a fix. It's not even a work around.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

@webwude:  seems I missed seeing this option (location history - Off).  I deactivated location history and so rotation is still working 'till woke up this morning.  Hopefully this works for me until the update.  Hoo-hah!

Re: Accelerometer stops working

The same problem on XP Dual with latest firmware 35.A.1.275.
Reboot helps but not all the time. Or Russian forums guys stated that the latest firmware should have resolve the issue. But not with my XP.
Any ideas how to fix?

Re: Accelerometer stops working

@creepwood I will not discuss with you what is a fix or a workaround. We can stop this here. For most users this method works. It will be fixed with nougat as well. So calm down and wait for the release.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Webwude, you are a genius and completely right. Turning off Google location history and rebooting x performance gets accelerometer working again and stays working. This shall work for everyone. 

This is how I will leave it until update for fix or nougat update, whichever comes 1st, but at least screen rotate works now. Yippee
