I have a european stock HTC One SV (no root), which received the OTA update to Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5 when it was released (that was last November or so). Since then, the option to use the front camera disappeared from the Camera app. I can't recall clearly but I'd say that the camera app showed a button with some kind of "rotation" icon, and also I was able to use it with Skype. Now there is no such option.

I've cleaned up the app data... is there anything else I could do? Is it a common problem after the update? (although I didn't find anything by searching the forum...)

@juannm Now you have to swype from left to right or right to left to swap cameras. See if that works for you. However the lack of camera in Skype is odd.. I have the newest Skype version and everything is working fine for me except the group video (even I have premium I can't use it...).

(HTC One SV LTE (k2_ul), debranded (T-MOB009 changed to HTC__032))
