i had 4.3 stock pre rooted from djembey bexause my wifi didnt work. the rom worked perfectly but after a while all of thw sudden my camera stopped working. i cleared the apps cache and forced closed it. it worked. but after rebooting andd trying the front camera it didnt work again.

It is the official camera application. Flashing this will rule out the possibility of software issues.

If it doesn't work, then it probably is a hardware problem and you will need to go to a service center in that case.

Flash the package from recovery.

Make a backup first.
