I was rooted and ROM'd with TWRP and Clean Rom (been that way for months), but put it back to stock kernel and rom. Nothing. Same problem. has anyone any knowledge as to changing the gravity sensor chip or any ideas at all? THanks in advance for any suggestions.
I had the exact same problem. Androsensor showed that the accelerometer was not working at all. After googling...all I found was to bang on the back of the phone. I didnt believe it at all, but after hours figured I would try it. Took the back cover off and banged on the he phone fairly hard. Turned it back on and everything was working. There are several sensors that apparently get stuck sometines.
I did the same thing with switching roms. Try banging the phone before you waste more time. I was all set to go to Best Buy the next morning to return it.
