It seems I've lost root, and also have no recovery. Any quick guides on how to install a recovery or reroot without having to reinstall rom again?

Start with doing (1), see if it works, if not try (2), see if it works then try (3)

Only if all 3 of these options do not work should you try a full reinstall.
Those will likely do nothing, the error comes from mm-qcamera, which is part of low level libs, clearing dalvik cache is almost always useless. A factory reset won't affect this issue either.

I'm guessing some FTFs carry different versions of camera libs.

yes flashing the commercial-journalist version fixed the issue for me but I lost root and recovery. However, I used fastboot to flash Z1_DooMLoRD_AdvStkKernel_FW-681_v02.img and then flashed the latest Super Su from the new DooMLoRD recovery to re-root the device.

Hi,
after update to 4.4.2, my camera freezes after a few shots.
I made the step 1, rebooted the phone, and now it seems to be ok.
Thanks a lot.
