It seems that more and more people suffer this problem.
Is it related to a custom rom ?(dont think so)
Is it related to a custom kernel ?
How deep does an kernel or rom go in changing such things?
After a factory reset,booting in total dark they work till next boot .
So the hardware works ...

Are there any smart dev's that know what is going on ?

Hope someone can help !

Ive never encountered this problem.

Its most likely down to ROM / Kernel - maybe even an app.

The ROM & Kernel go deep deep down into the core of the phone.... where the magic happens. You said yourself the hardware works, Which pretty much answers your own question

I even flashed stock rom ( ruu 1.50)
Didnt help.
Could it be that an rom,app or kernel messed up something
that an original rom could not overwrite ?

Proximity Sensor
They both won't work for me either.


Tried to avoid this with faux, sebastians and stock kernel on ics,
maybe all three kernels have the same problem or it's related to
the Firmware.

I've tried to boot up without light but the Sensors are still not working :/

@stillbeer:

How can we create a big stink about this to get some smart Dev's going on the issue. Every person I have communicated with is a user like me who is just having the same problems over and over. There have been a few fixes offered, but NONE work successfully. Are we just going to have to bite the bullet and stay without Proximity & Light sensors forever??????

I wish someone would really be willing to dig deep into this to solve it, I will pay $$$$$$!!! I am VERY serious!

Unhappy no luck yet
I seemd to get this bug after updating flashing new kernels and updating to ICS rom after being on GB MIUI with no problems.

I have tried everyting, flashing all ICS firmwares from the user friendly thread, super wipe, factory reset, manual wipes, format SD.
Tried Several ICS Roms including virtous, MIUI.us and Stock.

The sensors sometimes work for a brief period after reboot but will die after the phone goes to sleep a few times.

Well this thread has been dead for over half a year, but has anyone learned anything? I have a completely stock HTC Sensation 4g and now my proximity and light sensors are not working and the soft button backlights are not work. I have no idea if it happened after installing some app but I did a factory restore and that did not help at all.
