Accelerometer and Magnetic Sensors stoped working
I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 (i9300) and after the phone being updated and then rooted, the phone started having problems.
Those problems are with the Accelerometer and the Magnetic Sensors both stop working.
I've looked at the Secret Menu from Samsung (*#0*#) and try them but they are stuck on 0 value.
What bothers me is that, if I'm not mistaken, the Accelerometer and the Gyroscope sensor are the same chip, but the Gyroscope is working and not the accelerometer (the phone just won't rotate).
Idem with the compass, if I use any application on the Play Store for testing the compass it simply don't move. But then, if I open Google Maps and click on street view it doesn't move as well (disabling or enabling the compass mode doesn't solve it), but if I click 3-4 times on the button the screen divide in two and I can use a very badly calibrated compass (I think that it is using the compass at this point).
I've tried :
- Installing 2 different Samsung Stock ROM from 2 different regions.
- Installing CyanogenMod CM10.2 stable and CM11 Nightly
- Installing Ubuntu Touch
Nothing solved, this is why I am starting to think that it is an hardware issue.
Any help would be appreciated.
Is this a good question?
