I've found several threads on here from Razr and Razr Maxx owners having this issue, as well as a thread on Moto's site: https://forums.motorola.com/posts/a33e42d2d7
Holding down power and volume restored my auto-rotate, but later in the day, it wasn't working again.
Also, I see on Moto's site that there is a stuck compass issue, as well: https://forums.motorola.com/posts/a33e42d2d7 and in this thread, someone takes a magnet to the compass to fix it: https://forums.motorola.com/posts/5a193db8c2
I'm not very familiar with this hardware, so I'm wondering, are these isolated issues or related? (it doesn't seem like a connection has been made anywhere, if they are related).
Does the "compass" control the switch from landscape to vertical or is that a different sensor?
In some droidforums threads, there were users that bought up to 3 razrs and the problem kept occurring.
So, I'd like to get some feedback from ya'll.
"Nope, mine works fine" isn't really a helpful response... I'd like to know more about what sensors detect the autorotate and see if this is hardware or software related and also if I get another Maxx, will I be encountering this again.
