    Hi,
    in my xiaomi mi2a (with last version of Miui) when I open the compass app, calibration message appears, I try to calibrate but nothing appens. I can't use compass. Is it maybe an hardware problem?

    thanks for answer

    rotate with your phone in figure 8 in the space... needs to be calibrated in X,Y,Z axis...

    Calibration also ran like forever on my MI3. I installed FasterFix, started it and selected the European server, when I realized 2 things:
    1st: This app just adjusts the time on my phone by contacting a time-server.
    2nd: GPS was (like almost always) deactivated on my phone. So I switched it on.
    After that the calibration ran once again, but for like 10 seconds only.

    In other words: I am convinced that FasterFix is not necessary. If you encounter the "endless calibration"-issue, try this:
    * Make sure that the time on your phone is correct, related to your position on earth (for this I use ClockSync since several years)
    * Activate GPS and make sure, that your phone has a fix on your position.
    * Then run the compass and calibrate it.
