Sensors stopped working

Last week my completely stock N5 stopped auto rotating. After some searching I realized nearly all of the phones sensors were not working. I found a fix thread that suggested deleting the sensor files in the data folder. This worked for a few hours and went back to being broken. At this point my phone was rooted so I tried wiping to see if it was an application problem, no dice. Tried changing roms, nothing.

Are my sensors toast? I'm at a loss.. Help!

Download cpuid on play store and look at sensors section and if they don't show any data they're toast this is a problem with the lg g2s I used to have an lg g2 that had that problem and the nexus 5 is a googlified lg g2

The sensors do show up there. So I suppose there is some hope!

But do they show any data like when you put you finger on the proximity sensor does it show zero and when you remove it show 5 if it does it should be working

Proximity is working now. Looks like the accelerometer isn't. Hmm.
