    Recently, After installing speed forge i found that my accelerometer is not calibrated, spaceship keeps moving left side and also I found that in inclinometer that there is variation of about 5 degrees. Even i had done factory reset but still the problem persist.
    Is there any solution for calibrating the accelerometer ?:thinking:

    I haven't found any method of calibrating the accelerometer other than within the actual application. HTC provide a 'simple' calibration app in their build of android, were samsung don't...
    Of all the phones I've tested accelerometer calibration on, the Galaxy is by far the worst from factory.

    I've seen this happen, too. My best method is to place the phone on a flat surface when launching sensor-needing apps, so that the app's first reading is 'level'. Then it works all right, mostly.

    Games such as Labyrinth, or any of the sensor test apps. Some tools, for instance Bubble, have built-in calibration.
