Re: Accelerometer stops working

Could you please read the thread before complaining? There are some workarounds and a fix scheduled for November. *sigh*

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Thanks for posting the email from Sony. I have the same problem. I will wait for the software update in November and decide what to do after that, depending on whether it's fixed or not.

Stil works after 3 days.
From your Home screen, tap the Application screen icon.
Find and tap Settings > Location > Google Location History.
Tap this device and drag the slider beside your device to the left.
Restart your device.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Hi, I followed the steps as described by ianchen1967. I did this last week Friday (oct 21) afternoon and up to now, all is working fine.

I haven't restarted my phone since than. I followed exactly as described.

(1) go to Settings - Apps - App Google, press Disable, this will unstall App Google from your phone, and no need to install factory version. (2) go to Settings - Account & sync, press Google and click right-top corner to open menu, press Remove account. (3) Restart your phone. (4) Enter Google play store, you will be requested to login your Google account. Do it. (5) Search App Google in Google play and install up-to-date version of this App, then open/enable App Google. Done.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

I have the problem also. 35.0.A.1.275 software installed and I still need to restart my phone two or three times a day to reset the Accelerometer / gyro.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Same problem here. To many people with that problem. For sure is the phone and not an app. Hopefully they come with an update soon. I really like the phone.
