That's where mine was. Make sure you have root, get the permissions reset properly, and reboot to load the configuration. You can probably just copy and paste the commands in the OP (do su first and make sure you allow it).

This guide solve my problem.
I noticed about the problem when flashed AOSP based Rom. So, thinked it was a rom bug.
Then, flashed stock again and find the issue was still there.
After trying whit compressed air, and nothing changes, rooted my phone (again) and follow this guide, and proximity sensor is working again.
Thanks.
