See, because if you go Odin back to 4.3 TW, and you still have this issue, then you can confirm it is a hardware issue. But if you Odin back to 4.3 and you don't have those issues, then you know something in your ROM or services was modified or corrupt. My suggestion, go back to stock and test it out.
I did actually... I went full on Knox included restore stock 4.3.. I havent had any issues with phone but then again I don't call too many people during the day.. however I did encounter the same camera issue..so this phone is out of here.. I got the order in today with phone arriving tomorrow.. I hope I get a 4.2.2 JB phone...i

Yeah, definitely a HW issue. Good thing it was under warranty. And in most cases, they update the FW before shipping it out, so here's to hoping.

Yeah, CF-AR (ChainFires Auto Root). Won't trip knox flag but flashing a recovery like CWM/Philz/TWRP will cause your flag to trip.
