    I feel like every time I unlock my phone and launch an app, it thinks I have the phone rotated in landscape mode when I clearly don't.

    Is there any way to re-calibrate this sensor? The problem began with Bugless 0.1 (Froyo) but I think it's more coincidence than a result of the ROM.

    Mine has been doing same thing since installing Froyo frfxx and frf57. It is slow but eventually figures out how I am holding it.

    Do you have it set to vibrate when you unlock or launch an app. I have noticed that the vibrate function nearly always fools the accelerometer into believing the phone is in landscape.
