    I updated my Verizon phone with the official version. Love everything, except if you search across all the treads you will discover that this update causes virtually everyone's compass to be off by exactly 90 degrees. Doesn't seem to affect navigation, but does make map orientation wonky. Also may affect those who rely on this for things like drones.

    The compass in an Android phone uses a Hall-effect sensor, so bringing the phone near anything ferrous "de-calibrates" it. Rotate the phone 3 times around each axis (not near anything), and it should be calibrated.
