I am opening this thread to confirm that there is no way GART framework on Windows 8 or WinRT devices can succesfully compute the orientation matrix and attitude Heading using the OrientationSensor => Acceloremeter + Compass.
All the WINRT related checkins are speculative, we have been testing primitive GART on 8 different WinRT and Windows 8 devices including Surface Pro, RT, Sony, Samsung, etc...
None of them managed to align with the current position and orientation correctly. There is
absolutely no way to make it work on WinRT and Windows 8 devices, the sensors are calibrating all differently and all readings of yaw, pitch and roll are incorrect.
Whoever is responsible to produce the WINRT version of this framework, I am just wondering why they forget to mention the fact that it is totally not working.
Speculative chekins related to WINRT,
This tool is not working on Windows 8 and WinRT devices, and this is a fact based on the incorrectly calculated ViewPort, WorldView and AttitudeHeading readings and sensor calibration problems of all WinRT or Windows 8 devices
