    My accelerometer is not reading the angle of the phone right. When I play Teeter I have to keep the phone on a sharpe angle to keep the ball still, and I feel I have to rotate it extra to go into landscape mode.

    Now the question is... how do I readjust the accelerometer?

    Phone: Generic HTC Magic.

    I'm not sure but I think it's a hardware thing , so maybe you have to send it back for repair or replacement :)

    The only way to reset the accelerometer is to do a hard reset unfortunately. No need to send it back, but you need to backup your data before resetting it, (to be able to restore it once the hard reset wipes your phone)

    Apparently a lot of people are having similar problems. Hard reset didn't work for them. Apps that have calibrations are no problem (I tried the app "Bubble" and it worked great) but it appears the "global" calibration is off. So obviously it's a software issue, and it's strange there is no built in global calibration (yet).

    Did you try calibrating the accelerometer in the settings or is that not an option on your phone?

    I have a HTC Magic, but running MyHero ROM. I haven't found any settings. Where in the settings can I find it if I have it?
