I have 2 Nexus 5 devices. The one my wife owns does not like the latest Google Camera apk from the Play Store. I have re-flashed the stock 4.4.4 ROM from Google as well as verify the checksum of the image. The stock camera apk that comes with the ROM works fine. I have tried booting into safemode and finally got the new camera working. Unfortunately after booting to normal mode the camera crashes again. I have cleared cache and it did not help. Also sometimes when she calls me her voice sounds garbled and jittery a little. The bootloader is unlocked but no root access. My question is could the unlocked bootloader be the issue? Or is there something else I can try? Thank You in advance.

I don't think it's the unlocked bootloader. I'm running LiquidSmooth (with unlocked BL of course) and it works fine

Bootloader status doesn't have any impact on camera or any system files for that matter.. Since you've already flashed factory images and still face this camera issue, it could be a hardware issue.. Do you get these crashes while using other camera apps as well?

I tried a bunch of camera apps from the Play Store and none of them crashed. Is it possible that the camera has bad firmware?
