The method of disabling the sensor in the .so folder seem to break auto rotate. For me however its kinda worth it. Anything I usually want rotated is always rotated on its own anyhow and not being able to use my phone as a phone is kinda the worst lol.

Some users in the CM 11 thread have had success using a Q-Tip with a little alcohol on it to clean a black haze on the sensor. This, however, requires you to take the phone apart, which is actually a lot easier than it would seem.
