Hi all,

Been struggling with this for the last days.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S3, Rooted, with CM11 for i9300 (nightly).

Everything seems to work properly except for the Proximity Sensor.

When I make calls the screen will go black and won't recover.
Proximity Sensor Finder always show 0.0 cm as if objects are constantly near.

These are the things I tried so far, with no luck:

1. Opening the device and cleaning the sensor.
2. Creating a bolder separation between the two receptors of the sensor.
3. Running Auto Calibration
4. Running Manual Calibration returns:
$ cat state #finger on the sensor to test if the sensor is working properly
$ cat state #blank value
$ cat prox_cal
Which means my 'new' calibration adds up to '0' which makes no sense (is it?)

What else would you suggest? This is really frustrating
