I'm not sure if I'm the only one experiencing this but every time I try to flash a custom kernel on CM11 and PA4 with cwm 6...4.8 camera app freezes like usual but then freezes again after 5 secs which is not usual.

Not only does this happen on custom kernals but stock CM11 and PA as well e.g. when I was in the science museum using PA taking pics everything was working well, then phone froze so I did a reboot in fact 5 reboots and camera displayed same symptoms as explained above. Also on CM11 stock kernal I did a regular reboot to apply full theme and bam camera stopped working all AF a sudden.

To fix I had to reflash ROM. I even did a full wipe( including format system) and still had same symptoms.

Pimped kernal just breaks camera straight from reboot no matter how many times I reboot it doesn't fix the problem. Only fix seems to reflash ROM (no need to wipe). Restoring stock/original ROM kernel fixes it but WiFi does not work.

Any way to get custom kernels to work without breaking camera?

..just an advice, do not use CWM, is recommended to flash with TWRP because is more efficient. I had many problems with CWM.
