In order to maintain TrueTone, you'll need to transfer over one of the sensors on the original flex cable or find a way to transfer the serial number from the old one to the new one. I can't quite remember what sensor it is, but it's not something that can be DIY-ed. Another way you could do it, albeit it's much more expensive, you may be able to order a replacement screen assembly from apple's self service repair store. It'll come with a new proximity sensor preinstalled but you'll have to order the parts with your device's specific serial or IMEI number to program the new display.

It sucks apple designed the phone this way. I hope you can get this issue fixed.

yes i believe so after further researching, one of the ways is using jc programmer but need to be jailbreak so it can read the front sensor. i already bought all the thing i needed so just need to wait for jailbreak.. i actually throw away that original flex cable that's why i cant copy directly using programmer.


@hazwanrawi ah I see. Well I hope it works out for you! Good luck!
