    Am I the only one with this bug? The compass is constantly draining battery in the backgrund and I can't even force stop the application. Any solutions?

    Cheers.

    hmm try the following :

    clear the data and cache from the compass app. then reboot into rec and clear cache and dalvik, then reboot as normal

    Well, I don't need the app so I just went ahead and removed the compass all together. But if it happens when I flash another update I will try your solution.
    Thanks for the tip.
