Accelerometer usage..

Nov 23, 2012
Hey all,

I've a SGS3 and use Miui 2.11.23. I've got a strange problem.

After calling someone..the Phone.apk ( doesn't seem to release the accelerometer and hence causes the battery to drain. The same follows for several apps such as Google translate, Getril, etc. The problem persists till I restart the phone.

I have accelerometer disabled by default. I've tried reinstalling the ROM with wipe data, wipe cache and wipe dalvic cache but can't seem to put away this problem.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Much appreciated

Here are 2 screenshots from GSam Battery Monitor showing the continuous usage of the accelerometer.
