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.
I am glad it worked for you. I have heard that this is a huge issue for the S4. Not sure about other models.
