Default Auto rotate not working

I am running viper 4.3 with buck marbles newest sense 4.4 kernel and every time I try to rotate my screen while watching a video on YouTube it doesn't rotate and when I'm using my camera my buttons are stuck in landscape and my gallery is stuck in landscape. I'm tried to do a g sensor calibration and turn auto rotate on and off but nothing worked. Has anybody heard of this? Thanks

I tried running just a sensor test and it tested my accelerometer, compass, magnetic sensor and so forth and its saying I do not have any of those sensors in my phone.

You need to make sure you are running a 4.4 kernel on that rom.
I believe Buck's latest Sense kernel would be for 4.4.2 and that's why you are having sensor issues.
You may wanna look for or check with him on which version you need/want for running on Viper, since Viper is still 4.4 based.

Tried buck 1-11 and 1-26 and elemental 11.1 and 13.1 and all of them are knocking my sensors out. If i just stay on vipers stock kernel everything works just fine.
