    I've a Iphone 4s that the rear camera wont open the shutter after replacing the screen.
    Also the flash doesnt work either (have tried with the torch app), I've tried to replace it with another one but that didnt solve it.
    The front camera works.

    I've read this Guide: http://www.ifixit.com/Wiki/iPhone_Troubleshooting_Guide_101

    But it applies to Iphone 4 and the logicboards aint the same.

    I've also tried to reset it etc, no luck.

    So is there anybody who is sitting on a solution for this?

    When doing screen replacements you have to disconnect the rear facing camera and can easily get damaged if the person replacing it isn't careful. It could also just be disconnected because you have to disconnect it too when you are replacing it. I would contact the person who replaced it.
