    hello. got the droid razr a couple months ago and have been perfectly happy with it. although, i can't seem to get the tilt to work properly in applications. it tilts fine in messaging, but whenever i try to use the tilt in apps such as temple run or any of the doodle jump-esque games, the character doesn't move. anyone else experiencing/experienced this or knows a fix?

    sorry if this has been posted before, but i didn't search too long.

    What happened to the ability to calibrate the internal compass? I didn't realize they took that out until I was going to suggest that for the OP. I know I was using the Google Maps the other day and a pop up showed up real quick saying I have not calibrated my compass.

    I did some searching on that though, and they say to just move your phone in a figure 8 position with the map open? Course that won't help him at all will it? Or will doing that help out the accelerometer too?

    Yeah figured that was a long shot. I don't know man, I would say try booting into Safe Mode to see if another APP you have is conflicting. But then you won't have your games to test it on. Have you done a hard reset of the phone? With the phone turned on hold the power button and the volume down at the same time for about 10 seconds until the phone reboots.
