So as the title says, my gyroscope isn't working.
I haven't tried it on ColorOS, Google Camera doesn't install there, other ROMs like cm11, PA, and Gummy either crash when I go into panorama/photo sphere modes or they just not function properly.
However, games seem to work just fine, probably because they use the accelerometer sensor.
I've downloaded this app to test whether it's working at all or not, seems to be working, not fully, but partially; moves at the right direction, but not with the same amount.
Currently running cm11-20140626.

Any help is appreciated.

Google Camera doesn't work on ColorOS?
I beg to differ:

I can even use the photosphere with no problem...

your gyro works fine.

If you're talking about photosphere, it's the magnetometer that's derping, and it only derps in photosphere. No one has had time to track down why yet.

I tried install that "camera" app on cm11, it doesn't even install.
Flashed ColorOS, downloaded an app that uses the gyro, works just fine, I guess the problem was with all the custom ROMs I was getting.
The main reason I changed from ColorOS is that it doesn't have the "hold back button to kill" function, seems like I'll be using xposed now.

Thanks to everyone.
