    I upgraded from 7.1.1 to 7.1.2 two days ago and yesterday the back camera wont work and sometimes the front camera still works.. and the flash works all the time with special light app! some strange software bug i guess?!?

    the camera app just wont respond at all most of the time just cant flip back to the front camera if i press the button a few times 5-7 times..

    Ive gone from 7.1.2 back to 7.1.1 but still the same problem (and i configured is as a new phone), so my question is there a way to dont know.. a special software reset? some magic to make me cameras work again!?

    Personally I'd take it to Apple and see what they say.

    What phone are you talking about?
    If it's still under warranty, have Apple have a look at it. If you reinstalled the OS and set up as new, there would be strong possibilities of hardware damage. Have you dropped it recently?

    If you restored as new that's about as much of a software reset as you can do.

    However just to try it since it will only cost a minute of your time, hold the home + power button until you see the Apple logo. Doubt it will do much but you never know.
