Got this yesterday but not yet today....
Seems we're not the only ones according to the xda thread. Too much of a nuisance for me as it was happening intermittently and affecting all sorts of features on the phone that I use. Tried Sensor Hub Test in *#0*# but that didn't help. Reverted to MJ5 last night and no problems.
Will probable stick at the moment, but just in case, did you swap back modem too? And dirty or full wipe first?
Flashed the MJ5 modem via Odin before restoring a nandroid of MJ5. Originally, I did a cache and dalvik wipe to go from MJ5 to MJ8. No full wipe. It seems that friedrich's Slim version is not stock Slim, as tschulieh's MJ5 is, but rather a hybrid of the stock and themed ROM's with things like transparent backgrounds and the, very, full screen caller included. I wish that friedrich had kept the stock Slim as... well, stock.
Yup. I know it's not great form to whinge about a devs work.....BUT.....this slim version is really no improvement on previous versions and is just not quite right. I've now flashed zips to revert to stock caller, stock lock screen light effect, stock non transparent framework, stock camera etc etc and there's the sensor services fc's. Previous versions were great and just worked out if the box.
Hope tschulieh returns in the future......
I'm still on v5, and I think I shall be sticking until a new base+changelist emerges with a supported 3minit.
Seems like there is now a new MJ7 up with a much bigger changelist:
I9505ZHUEMJ7 Android 4.3 31.10.2013 1995965
Probably only regional apps, but this seems like a huge changelist jump to me.
From xda thread post, here...
I blame Syd!
This escalated me into writing my latest GS4BloatWipe script
See XDA thread
I can't help but think that you may have opened up, "a can of worms", a veritable, "Pandora's Box", for yourself with that Bloatware removal script old scapegoat!
(3 metaphors in one sentence! A record for me.)
Not at all my old Doubting Thomas.
My script just does the Donkey Work
Its down to the user to supply his/her Gordian Knot
Hornet's Nest averted!
I had to go one better!

Echoe ROM web site
In my defence, that was posted at the same time as my post on here.
And they say that women are indecisive!
It was 4 minutes previous to your post here actually butty, but in your defence, it probably did take you longer than that to type out all those letters knowing your one-finger typing skills!
For those of you who have had trouble with Adaway since 4.3, (Adaway v2.2 seems to work best for me by the way) then take a look at this thread
This downloads its own version of the hosts file that directs its known ads etc. to localhost (which is all that Adaway does)
The hosts file here is around 12Mb, wheras my current Adaway-hosts file is approx 800kb, so its blocking way more stuff.
Just make sure you remove the following 2 lines from its host file, as these appear to host some Google Play images:
Just remember if you manually copy /system/etc/hosts ensure permissions is rw-r--r-- (644)
I've frozen Adaway (as even with 2.2 its still not perfect....downloads seem to take ages) and using this hosts file instead.
So if hinge and bracket can stop their bickering.....can one of you clarify, does that mean xda thread is not shutting down
I'll tell you as long as you promise I can be Hinge!
I Leave a rom for a few days and look what happens lol
I came back to have a look at what new delights friedrich had for us and this is what I find
Echoe v8 is now up which is MJ9 based
Now what to do? MJ9 will probably mean waiting for 3Minit even longer.
How does this come with MJ9 modem? As far as I'm aware, modems still don't flash with zips, unless this is an Odin download.
Edit:No modem as I suspected. Friedrich has now corrected the post.
You will have to flash MJ9 modem separately

@ironass How`s the talexop kernel working for you?
When I was on Echoe ROM I immediately flashed the faux123 kernel which gave me very good results on the default settings for my usage. However, I did experience a couple of freezes and switched to talexop which proved to be even better. I now use this on my DjeMBeY Slim MK8 ROM and couldn't be happier. See, here.
Echoe Rom v10 "On the Run" (Stock and Themed, Full and SLIM versions) are up!
Based on stock MKF release, (which has the same changelist as MK8 & MKE)
For changelog, see Source, below.
gonna give this a whirl after the latest Djembey was bugsville for me. fingers crossed
