I don't believe the chip they are using is genuine. The purpose of line 105 is to check for a genuine MPU6050 device and it is failing. I'd comment it out and see if you get plausible results but there are no guarantees with Chinese clone chips.

I think you misunderstand me. I don't intend to remove that line from the GitHub archive: its purpose is to detect fake chips. I'm suggesting that you comment it out in your local copy of imu.py to see if your hardware works in other respects.
