Hi all,

I see that many have the following problem, and I might be able to help :D

This method requires root privileges!

From root explorer or similar program delete these folders and file


/data/system/sensors
/data/misc/sensors
/persist/sensors/sns.reg

Restart phone

Enjoy :)

So just out of curiosity, I came from an HTC phone, and I'm just learning this one, but I can't seem to find any of those files on my phone, I go to my root folder, and my /data and /persist folders are both empty, and ideas as to why that would be?

Nevermine, I found the problem with locating them, unfortunetly the root explorer I used on my HTC isn't working with my nexus too well -_-

The problem is caused flashing ported rom, but it is already known from the 4.4.2 update. A large number of those who are updated from 4.4 to 4.4.2 lost sensors ... I'm glad that I helped a huge number of N5 users. :good:

Great... Just sent my N5 to repair a week/two ago because of Sensors lol after trying to port an Xperia Rom XD.
Awkwardly I used the sensor libs from stock Rom and modified stock kernel so I don't know how I came across it.

Even flashed stock factory image so I thought it was my hardware :/
