Default All sensors stop working

Hi,

After upgrading to KitKat and a custom ROM I have been having multiple issues with sensors. I have factory reset several times and clean flashed a few different ROMs but with the same result. The sensors do initially work but then just suddenly stop for no apparent reason.

I have also restored from my efs backup but this has not helped.

Any other suggestions?

Cheers

I would suggest going back to pure stock 4.2.2 off samimobile first the full reset from Samsung recovery and wipe. You don't mention which custom roms ? Try that first though... Let me know !!

Full wipe your phone in recovery System, firmware,... Etc then reboot directly from CWM recovery in advance settings to download(odin mod) and flash the stock ROM.

make sure you back up everything.
Hope it helps

Hi,

Did as both of you suggested but the problem still occurs. This is on X-note but also occurred on Omega. At a bit of a loss here as reverting to stock doesn't seem to help. I flashed the UK 02 rom as EE have not released 4.4.2 yet.

Any further suggestions?

Cheers

For me disabling media scanner did the trick, had the same problems, and I use tasker to disable media scanner when screen turns off, never had a problem since.

Hi,

I can't find the media scanner when I go into Titanium. What's the exact name, please?

Enter terminal emulator and get su access, then write:

pm disable com.android.providers.media/com.android.providers.media.MediaScannerReceiver
