Default [Q] Camera not working

I rooted my phone about two months ago and didnt have any problems at all. Used HTC's website and loaded cleanrom reborn 1.1 and the kernel that came with it is 2.6.35.13-g277012f

Recently, about a week or two ago, I noticed the camera starting to fail. It occasionally wouldnt load in 2D mode, just give me a black screen. Now, it rarely loads at all. Either the whole screen is black or it brings up the camera app (stock, instagram, fb, all the same) but the part of the screen that would show the picture is black. When I turn it to 3D mode the screen freezes, then flickers, and quickly closes to the home screen and still flickers for about 3 seconds then is fine.

My questions are this, could this be caused due to needing an update, a new ROM or new hardware? Also what do you all recommend as far as the best ROM for taking pictures?

And on an unrelated note, does anyone know a good ROM that supports 4G hotspot instead of it just automatically switching to 3G??

Thanks

That sounds like a software issue.. Might be the rom or the kernel.

My camera just started acting up also, I went ahead and wiped everything and installed bone stock rom (rooted only) and camera is still messed up.

When I use the main camera it works fine, when I switch to front facing camera - it stays on the main camera and just inverts the image

Is this a hardware or software issue? I am guessing it is the hardware

Let me know what you guys think.

Yup. Running an ruu removes root. Just don't run the hboot1.5 ruu if your on hboot1.4. It will save you a headache.
