    Something went wrong with the Jailbreak. Restore and re-jailbreak is your best bet. Might want to check and make sure it does work after the restore before jailbreaking again.

    I tried this and camera app actually opened this time But when the shutter would open the screen would be black and shutter key was disabled. I restart the phone and when I open camera the phone crashes again. Know any other fix??

    If that is happening before the Jailbreak then take it back to the Apple store and they will replace it. What program are you using to Jailbreak? may just be a problem with the program

    If you bought it used, ask the person go you bought it from if it is still under warranty.

    The phone is still under warranty but I have tmobile and since it has been jailbroken doesn't that void the warranty? I used pwnage 2.2 to jailbreak my phone

    I bought an iPhone that was water damaged and the camera didn't work at first, same description as yours. Check your water sensor in the bottom of your headphone jack with a bright light. If it is Red/pink, then your phone has been water damaged.
    As for replacement, if your phone has not been water damaged, restore in itunes before taking it in to Apple. Restoring the phone erases the Jailbreak so nobody will ever know (except you).:)

    It doesn't sound like a hardware issue to me but it's worth a shot.

    I still think you should take it to an Apple Store. Even if you bought it used, it may still be under warranty and you can still make a Genius appointment.

    I just checked the sensor and it half red half white does that mean water damage?
