Default Camera failed warning on 4.4.2

Hi I hope you can help me with this,

I was on a custom 4.3 rom running on old bootloader. I then
updated to 4.4.2 rom but my camera is not working only a black screen and giving
me a warning message " Camera failed" and once that happens
the whole system lags. I've read around that it could be a hardware
problem but when I switched back to the 4.3 rom the camera is working
smoothly again. I have tried 3 different 4.4.2 custom roms but same issue persists.


My question is could this have anything to do with my bootloader? I am planning
on flashing a stock 4.4.2 firmware with the new bootloader to see if that helps but what
worries me is if this doesn't help then I have no way anymore to go back to
a 4.3 firmware where my camera still works. Can you help me point to a solution
to this problem? Or which stock firmware I should flash to test if my camera
will work on that firmware.

What custom rom did you flash? Do you use the correct modem for the old bootloader?

I am using the right modem though I just flashed the file suggested on this page.

I'm on the Phoenix rom and it's running stable for me. I am also running on the old bootloader.

I had troubles at first after upgrading to 4.4.2, but after I wiped /system in recovery, everything worked.

You could try it. Make sure to backup /efs to your external sd or pc. Backup your entire internal sdcard, because it will be wiped. I didn't know that, so I lost everything on my sd :P

Perform a full wipe. Then wipe /system from the recovery (i used clockwork recovery). After that just flash and don't install any tweaks in aroma.
