Default Galaxy S3 accelerometer and magnetic sensor not working

Hi, this two sensors just stopped working after update to 4.3. I've tried installing custom rom but still nothing. All my other sensors are working fine but theese two aren't giving me any data. Any help?

Factory reset and flash full stock rom with odin. If still the same then you have a hardware fault.

I've tried that but still not working. Do I need to downgrade to 4.1.2?

I don't think it will make any difference, but won't harm to check. Make sure you use an efs v2 4.1 firmware.

Firmware EMG4 and later all require efs v2 format for the IMEI number to be read, by updating to 4.3 you now have v2 and cannot use a firmware earlier than EMG4, otherwise your efs (and IMEI) will be corrupted.

I'd be interested to know if this worked, I'm having similar problems.
