    My compass has been off since installing the 10.2.1.1055 leak. It's pretty random too... kinda like spin the bottle.
    Anyone else having this problem?

    Grab the compass bar file from the OS package, and sideload it . Should fix the problams you're having.

    Yep, I tried that but no luck.
    None of these worked:
    sys.compass-10.1.1.18
    sys.compass-10.1.1.13
    sys.compass-10.1.1.12
    sys.compass-10.1.1.11

    Still scratching my head...

    Did you try a hard reset followed by a compass calibration?

    Hard reset - gold volume up and volume down until the phone just shuts down and starts up again

    Calibration - open the compass app and move it in an "8" like motion until it grips onto accurate readings.

    If you have tried residloading the .1055 compass app, just in case your app wasn't installed right, maybe it's just your location (too much interference) or your sensor is not functioning correctly. It might be a hardware issue with your unit.

    But try calibrating it and maybe residloading the original bar that was there would help. try the BBVE app to test your sensor.

    I'm with you sklotz. My compass gives me something different almost every time. I've reloaded and re-calibrated.

    Fortunately, BB Maps works OK so it isn't a big deal. But I'd like to be able to use Star Tracker and other GPS dependent apps.

    Mine has been messed up since .1055, maybe even before? Not sure. But Ive tried everything short of reloading .1055. Not worth the destructive install just for the compass. Does anyone know if there is another bar file that affects the compass other than the compass bar?

    I've tried the bar from the newest leak, and still no change. That's why I'm wondering if there is another bar that also affect the compass.

    I know this is an older thread, but it's still relevant.
    Ive still been having issues with the compass. I'm kind of on a quest now!
    After trying 2 replacement devices, neither worked...after updating the OS. The first replacement I didn't realize, but the second one I noticed before I updated to the official OS, that the compass did work with the 10.1 software it was shipped with. I'm also noticing, that the few people that are having problems still, seem to be on VZ. Is it possible that the new/newer coding for the compass isn't playing nice with STL4 or the CDMA radio?? Would an old 10.1 compass bar file work? Does anyone even have one?

    I've already tried that. Take a look at post #5 in this thread.
    If you do a search on CB for 10.1 Compass bar, you will find a few links to download them. They are not typically a single bar file, you will need to download a complete OS (450MB) that has the bar files broken out individually.

    Give it a try, maybe you'll have better luck than I did. If you get it working, please let us know so myself and others can give it another try.

    Yea after I posted this, I downloaded the only 10.1 I could find on here. Thought it worked, but only for a few seconds. Still no good. I email BlackBerry through BlackBerry World on the compass app download, maybe they'll look into it?
