    Hi there.

    I'm working with an application which uses gyroscope orientation to set the camera rotation for android. I'm not using Google cardboard sdk but directly getting gyro.attitude. Everything seems to work nice and smooth but when I put the mobile inside the cardboard y-rotation stops working so I can't turn camera left nor right.

    My guess is that the cardboard magnet is somehow jamming the gyroscope readings. Someone can confirm this and how to prevent this from happening?

    Thanks.
