[Q] No Rotation, No Sensors, No 4.3 - Help!
I bought a Nexus 4 on Ebay. The listing said the phone was stuck in "download mode" and the guy couldn't fix it. I bought it cheap, received it, and used a thread here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2347060
) to get it up and running. The phone is now booting and working well enough.
Unfortunately there are 2 problems that seem to persist.
1) Rotation doesn't work at all. The sensor reports no data back when I use various testing applications. I know that the phone has some issues if you mix radios between versions. I assure you that I've tried various combinations, including the correct ones, to no avail. I also have checked the "auto rotate" settings in the normal menus and they are turned on. Also, in looking into the rotation issues I found that the other sensors (light, proximity, gravity, etc...) are not functioning.
2) When I install the 4.3 OTA rom the system hangs. Based on some troubleshooting it appears to be the .84 radio that's causing the system to fail to boot, though I haven't gotten the 4.3 rom to boot at all.
I've run a logcat and there are error messages that seem to report problems with the sensors. I googled for them and found them in other logcats where people did not report the problems that I'm having. I'd be happy to post a logcat if it would help.
I believe that this is a software issue, but it is possible that it is hardware. I just get the feeling that it is software.
Can anybody contribute or point me in a direction for more information.
