STM32F417 and LIS3DH SPI1 problem

Hi forum!
Here is a very strange problem I'm facing with the SPI1 peripheral of the STM32F417 connected to the LIS3DH. I have to single-step through my code with my debugger in order to get the right data from the LIS3DH, otherwise I end up getting just 0xFF.

Here is my setup:
- PA4 set to OUT and Pull_UP used as CS# for LIS3DH, toggled by me through software.
- PA5/6/7 set to AF and PP.
- All pins at 50MHz, portA clock is enabled, SPI1 clock is enabled.

How I read a byte from the STM LIS3DH:
SPI1->DR = (uint8_t)(0x80 | reg); // set bit 7 to read
while( !(SPI1->SR & SPI_I2S_FLAG_TXE) );
SPI1->DR = 0x00; // dummy byte
while( !(SPI1->SR & SPI_I2S_FLAG_TXE) );
while( SPI1->SR & SPI_I2S_FLAG_BSY );
*data = (uint8_t)(SPI1->DR & 0xFF);

Open to suggestions! Thanks!
