Sony fixed camera broke error but it's not for older firmware.
So if you unlocked bootloader on 4.2.2 you have permanently damaged camera.
Are you sure about that? Permanently? I remember people saying that they have back the camera functionality after Update to .290 or .136.

I hope he Backup TA but sound like he do not even know about Bootlader, so guess not.

BTW, I got that App and working Awesome but is for PS3 Controller, he asking for Xbox Controller, It will working too?

I'm not 100% sure, Google should know that (for sixaxis controller).

And for bootloader - yeap, I'm sure.
If doesn't have TA backup - there's no help.

Only if someone found some way to fix it and I haven't heard for that - but I doubt...

I was under the impression I needed a rooted device to use backup TA?
Can somebody explain to me what part of process I went through where I unlocked my bootloader?
All I was trying to do is root my phone NOT unlock the bootloader.
I do appreciate the help.

Downgraded to NUT's 14.1.G.1.534 with flash tool rooted it with Bin4ry, installed dualrecovery then updated to 14.1.G.2.257 and finally 14.2.A.1.136.
What went wrong?

I followed the steps very closely and there was no mention of unlocking.
What program out of the three would have done it?

You downgraded to .534 FW provided bu NUT, Rooted with Bin4ry, Installed DualRecovery then "updated to .257", this updeate wan not necessary and instead of doing that you should update to .136 directly with the instructions from the thread, BUT this should not cause any issues what so ever.

Then you never did this steps from HERE?

Type on keyboard *#*#7378423*#* and check what Bootoader Unlock Saying, Yes, No or Unlocked?

Bootloader unlock allowed: Yes

I did see that page but I ignored it because I was not interested in unlocking my bootloader.

Then your bootloader is Locked. You still have problem with the camera? Do a Factry Reset.
