Yep, the update fixed the error. Thanks.
As for the Spirit Level being off, I found a work around. I prop up my phone to read 0 by 0; then I go to the phones motion settings and calibrate. The Spirit Level will then read 0 by 0 on a flat surface.
Nevertheless, I think it would be useful to have a "tare" button similar to one on a scale. Then if it is not possible to find a flat surface the user could "zero out" the spirit level for a baseline.
I'll try to put an option to open the Samsung's motion sensor calibration app. I looked into it last night, but the setting_b.exe need some kind of parameter to open the calibration screen. I'll try to figure it out.

I got the same result with you lightsensor test program on my B7610. Did you share the code of the test program with the Samsung developers?
I'll send them an email about the problem and hope they can solve it. Thanks for you the great effort you took to help the b7610 users.
I attached the source code. It's written in VB.NET with VS2008. The program just PInvokes the 2 functions of the SamsungMobilesdk_2.dll, the SmiLightSensorGetCapabilities and SmiLightSensorGetIlluminance.
I modified it to see the results clearly.
