Below solution works so far after five days's trial. No functions and apps need to be disabled.

You should remember your google account and password before going.

(1) go to Settings - Apps - App Google, press Disable, this will unstall App Google from your phone, and no need to install factory version.
(2) go to Settings - Account & sync, press Google and click right-top corner to open menu, press Remove account.
(3) Restart your phone.
(4) Enter Google play store, you will be requested to login your Google account. Do it.
(5) Search App Google in Google play and install up-to-date version of this App, then open/enable App Google. Done.

Guys,

I am going to test the telephone after the "ianchen 1967's procedure" above reported.

Will let you know if it is working on my Xperia as well.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Sorry por my bad English!

I found something related to the error, the proximity sensor was always on before the problem was given and now had gone with what I had to restart to function accelerometer. leave one day with error then restart today and now the proximity sensor is lit as before and has not given me the problem. (A red light that looking at where are the light and proximity sensors)

Re: Accelerometer stops working

I tried to uninstall the last update of memory app and disable the AR effect app and reboot, then the rotate function seems to be stable now.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Is there a known fix for this besides reboot? It's a serious problem, as it affects the camera too. My screen rotation fails after just a few minutes. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Now more than 2 days after uninstalling the memory app 1.1.A.0.1 (latest system update) without any problems in my Accelerometer and gyro.
I didn't touched the what's new, AR effects, Google services/app, nor disabling any other system app.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Sony, when will you release the update to us/ give us the solution? It would be disappointed for all of us without the target fixing schedule...

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Another solution is to delete the memory update in apps and all apps scroll down to memory app open it, press the three small dots on top right corner and delete the update and restart phone. Done
