comment Can I manually re-calibrate the iPhone 4 compass?
I'm not using my compass app for wayfinding or something which requires extreme precision — I just wanted the maps app to show my orientation with an acceptable degree of accuracy.

I did the RAM swap earlier this afternoon—no luck. Good call on the hardware repair—I'll get an estimate and see where I stand.

The noise does appear on the Apple logo screen. I actually can't get any further into the boot than that screen. Fixing a hardware issue will be probably be cost-prohibitive in this case, given how difficult iMacs are to get "into", and the fact that this is an old "spare" machine for me.

I'll give this a try when I get back to the machine later tonight.

Good point, Dan... thanks for the insight!

Thanks for the update... while it didn't make it any more accurate, it seems doing the figure 8 with a compass-relevant app open does affect the calibration-- no need to wait for a prompt.

This sounds like a clever solution (so long as it's not too powerful a magnet, or so close to the phone as to mess with data). I couldn't get the recalibration screen to come up, though. I even tried moving two magnets around the phone independently. No dice.
