Others on Google say they're not getting an image or poor quality but my problem seems even further. My operating system doesn't seem to even recognize the front camera. None of the apps have a button (anymore) to switch to the front camera including the official camera app. I have Android 4.4.2.
I'm running Dev's 3/20 version of CM9 which does not support front facing camera, and then accidentally switched to the front facing camera. Now I cannot switch back to back camera because the camera app has a black screen and then crashes whenever I open it. Clearing the Cache doesn't help. I really don't want to have to wipe everything and reinstall the ROM.
