Can someone please help or explain why my proximity sensor is no longer working after root? And can someone tell me how or what I have to do to get it working again because my screen doesn't rotate anymore

Many people reported issues with proximity sensor being buggy. If calibrating didn't work for you the issue is probably the same as mine.
This only affects third party apps screen on/off during calls should be working fine.
What happens is that any app requiring the use of proximity sensor will work straight after installation but will most likely stop working after a reboot.
So, I have a Galaxy SII with Apolo Regular Kernel v4.14 running on NeatRom v6.3.
My problem is, that my Proximity and Light sensor doesn't work.
In-call the screen won't turn of only if I turn it off with the power button, which is annoying.
I've alreadz tried to fix it with signed_cm10_proxfix_update.zip which worked for a while, but not anymore.

I have gestures using proximity sensor added to my application. I am wondering how I can add functionality where swiping a distance over the screen will wake my app. I have the gesture code all working. Here is my problem.
I want the swipe to open screen ONLY when screen is asleep AND my app is the currently open app (when screen turns on my app is open).
I think I'm having a issue with the proximity sensor on my htc one. I End up disconnecting calls or loudspeaker.
The proximity sensor is on the top left of the phone and i normally put my ear against the top right f the phone as I wear glasses. Since i have small ear's, the sensor doesn't get covered. Normally the sensor is near the ear piece so never had this issue.
I am posting this as an FYI...
I have been having issues with my phone since installing a screen protector. (Steinheil ultra)
The screen would blank after unlocking. The knock on feature would rarely work. The screen would not come on when I would pull the phone away from my face. Lastly, I installed a proximity sensor app that showed my proximity sensor to be flaky.

Seems some dust is stuck up on my i747s proximity sensor. I will get it cleaned at a later point, but for now I need to disable the proximity sensor. The phone screen just turns off as soon as I dial a number and wont come back up until the call has disconnected. So cannot access the screen while on call.
