Default [HELP] BADLY Screwed up Camera and Gallery

Hi guys. My issue is that I was trying out an alternate camera for my rooted A116 and I accidentally ended up downloading and flashing the wrong version (which isn't compatible with this device) and the camera fc'd on launch.
But I had taken precautions and made a Titanium Backup of my old Gallery.
.
Since I couldn't restore the old gallery directly due to the apk having a different name (it was a 4.3 apk) I had to manually go and delete it using root explorer. But I accidentally ended up deleting other files similar to gallery, which I suspect are related to the camera. That's it I screwed up.
Even after restoring the old gallery all I get is a very laggy gallery and no camera application (will not launch from gallery or lockscreen either) same result with trying to flash stock gallery downloaded from this forum.

I even tried flashing the 4.1 gallery but same result. Every time I get a laggy and a buggy gallery and no camera app.

Also tried installing 3rd party camera and gallery apps from the play store. All of them showed error and failed to launch camera and the gallery was the same... Slow and buggy


So can anyone please help me get back CAMERA+4.2 gallery?

I'm on Android version 4.2.2 which should be the latest available on the device.

Thanks! :'(


DEVICE: LG P350

Overclocked to 806 MHz

will suggest you to take a backup of your application & sms ( app backup & restore , sms backup & restore) and contacts and reflash the ROM as no one will be able to blindly guess which all apks you deleted.
Press Thanks if I have helped you in any way. You can donate to me as well if you like my work.

I deleted the files in system/app which had a gallery icon and had similar names (like you could tell they are related to gallery/camera)
If anyone with stock camera can give a screenshot of their system/app root browser I can point out the missing apks.

EDIT: In the worst case scenario does anyone have a flashable zip that will allow me to go back to stock easily and maintain root? Of not what I'd the safest and the easiest way?
