Please help...g sensor on my One X is not working....
I have tried calibrating G sensor in safe mode, rebooting, factory reset, reverting back to stock but nothing seems to be working.

You seem to have one of the HOXs with the Invensense sensors inside, controlled by a Invensense MPU 3050 chip. Newer HOXs use Panasonic sensors if I'm not mistaken.
You won't like this, but there's really nothing you can do. It's not exactly a hardware defect, it's caused by a race condition. Apparently the MPU 3050 has this funny little quirk where it keeps some electronic charge even when the device is powered off, and when it powers back on too quickly the chip doesn't properly initialize, causing the sensors to be present for the system (you can check this with Elixir, it's free on the market, it will show all your sensors) but non functioning.
The only "solution" I found to this was in a forum for Acer A500 owners (same MPU in those things). Switch off all orientation control and whatnot, like auto-rotate etc, then turn your phone off entirely and let it sit for at least 5 minutes, maybe 10 just to make sure. This is more of a hit and miss approach, but definitely worth a shot.

I have the same problem. Tried flashing diffrent kernels and roms, reverted to stock with nandroid backup and with ruu files. Rebooting in safe mode, calibrating. Nothing helps. It seems the only solution is like AcoQ said, turn off hox and turn it on after few minutes. I do not have warranty any more so no replacement from HTC... It happend to me yesterday after flashing new rom and kernel. Now after restart sonsors are dead, another restart and all of them work, restart - dead, restart - work and so on

Don't use any power saving app. Even the power save mode in stock rom. Delete all the power saving apps and cache files from app settings. and restart. Hope start works!

I also had problems with g sensor. Nothing seemed to work. Reverted to stock. Then tried this solution I found.

Reboot the phone with power + volume up. Hold them.
Let it reboot three times (the solution showed one time, but it only worked for me after a couple).
Now release the power button and hold the volume up during the whole boot sequence.

I don't know what the exact physics is behind it, but it should reset some things. This was the only solution which helped, and actually worked for me after trying all the other things
Good luck

Now with Sense 5 ROMs,Camera force closes for devices which are having this sensor issue. Seems camera drivers needs gyroscope to work properly.
Will roll back to CM10.2 nightlies. Atleast the problem isn't noticeble in AOSP ROMs.

It worked for my HTC One X in a moment,and it works perfectly even after you powerdown device

Solution is the best i found in this 5 days of horror with my HTC One X camera and sensors not working!
Now it works all perfect!!
