Default Dead screen when trying to end the call

Hello all,

I have a sim-unlocked T-Mobile HD7 that I've upgraded to latest 8107 some time ago via cab-sender.

Officially T-Mobile doesn't support 7720+ afaik.

The only problem that I have is that the screen remains black after I take the phone away from my face/ear. Also the screen automatically goes black when I hit dial although it's not near my face/ear.

Is anyone know how can I fix this?

I had this stupid bug on a intermediate build before Mango on an unlocked HD7, but when the official ROM for HD7 come out, it was solved. Now I'm stuck again with it...

Kind regards,

mine has exactly the same problem
I loaded ansar's Newtech 8107 ROM and then deepshining v7.3 ROM (also 8107) which I still have.
I have noticed that the 2 ROMs have attentive phone embedded - settings, scroll down to see attentive phone.
Attentive phone uses the light sensor a lot, and if you have a case for your phone slide it out a bit and the screen will light up when you are on a call.
The light sensor is to the left of the htc logo on the screen, and if you cover that area it thinks you have put it to your ear or pocket and switches off the screen.
I tried disabling all options in attentive phone, and would like to know how to uninstall the app but there is no option from settings.....anyone?

If you sideload an older attentive phone xap. One that installed in the app list you might be able to uninstall it from there. Works for advanced config.
