If you’re a Cherry Mobile Flare user like me, you’re probably happy enough with your phone, especially for the price. However, it’s likely that you’re encountering a few bugs that are hindering your experience with your phone. One such bug is the off-center gyroscope that some Flare units seem to be encountering.Actually, a large chunk of Flare users are reporting it, so it isn’t a problem that’s limited to a small few. Thankfully, there’s a fix, and no, there’s no need to root the phone just to get it to work.

Tutorial on How to Fix Cherry Mobile Flare’s Gyro Problem

Step 1: Download the GPS Status and Toolbox app from the official Google Play store.

Step 2: Once it’s installed, open the app. Make sure that you’re connected to a WiFi hotspot and that your GPS is on. Make sure you can pick up the GPS signal. Go outside if you have to.

Step 3: If you have a strong enough GPS connection, the app should populate with various location and positioning info. Wait for that info to populate before proceeding to Step 4.

Step 4: Make sure the phone is on a level surface and is laying perfectly flat. Keep in mind that the camera and speaker grill sticks out a bit on the back, preventing the phone from laying perfectly flat. Lay it in such a way that the camera and speaker grill don’t get in the way.

Step 5. Press the Menu button and go to Tools > Calibrate pitch and roll.

Step 6: And you’re done! Test the gyro by playing a game of Temple Run or something.
