How to fix some mysterious problems.

I realized that when I make calls on my iPhone 4, the screen no longer turns off when put against my ear. I do not see the proximity light sensor flashing under a video camera. The only thing I've done to my phone is downgrading from iOS 6.0 down back to iOS 5.1.1, could that be why? How could I fix it?

The proximity sensor can be seen with a video camera? This is news to me.

Yep, it can, we tested it. Thanks for the info!

If all you did, as you say, is downgrade, then you have a hardware problem. If you also jailbroke, then it's possible it's software, but I doubt it. Easy test: Restore to stock (any iOS) and see if it works. That will tell you for sure if it's hardware or software.

Unfortunately CallLock is only compatible up to iOS 4. You can't purchase it on iOS 5.

But how am I using it on 6.0.1?

tells me unable to purchase, waiting to hear back from the dev (6.0.1)

@theiphoneguy You can't buy things that arent officially supported, but that doesnt stop you from installing them if you bought them prior (on 4.x for example)

Yes, @Curly420 is correct. @shimmer, if you find that CallLock works as designed even on iOS 5.x and 6.x, you can send a quick email to the developer to let him know and possibly encourage him to update the compatibility information.
