Yes I am.
hexdump /dev/input/event2 and hexdump /dev/input/event3 output nothing. Even if I pick up my neo and wiggle it (Not sure if that's necessary.. but I thought I'd try it.. :/ Since it's just giving me nothing)
No debug output in dmesg (When I try reading, or that I can find in the bootup output)
I just tried upgrading my kernel (http://buildhost.openmoko.org/daily/freerunner/200808/20080810/uImage-2.6.24+git32+2438a8c74c495c95f5b78301a44ed8e8d0b267d5-r2-om-gta02.bin), rebooting, etc. Same problem.
Perhaps my accelerometers are broken? I imagine it's either that or the kernel. I opened a ticket on bugzilla.
