A friend of mine gave me a Nexus 4 with a camera problem. He said that, after ota upgrade to the last version of kitkat, camera stopped to work ("camera not connected" error). Both front and back camera don't work, and led flash too. I've tried every version of android stock, cyanogenmod 10 and 11, and franco kernel too. I've open the phone and unmounted every piece: nothing looks wrong. Maybe logical board? Or a defective back camera? But led flash and front camera don't work too. Maybe a software problem? Thank you

Try reverting back to 4.2.2; see if that fixes it. If not you might have to open it to make sure the wires for the camera is connected.

But, as I already wrote, i've tried to flash every N4 android version (with unified toolkit, of course), and I've unmounted every piece and everything looks ok. I don't think the back camera is broken, as front camera and led flash don't work too.

Do u think that if back camera doesn't work, the front camera and flash led are off? I tried now without back camera, now without front, and i've the same error.

try also to delete your app data off the camera (gallery) in app settings or try another camera app in the playstore and check it again. if nothing helps i think something inside your device is broken
