    Hey all.

    My boss man shattered his iphone screen, so i replaced it with a fancy new green one. While getting the battery out, i accidentally broke that dang front camera ribbon cable.

    After i finished, i booted the mojo up and everything works! however, i opened the camera, and while the rear camera worked, i foolishly tried to switch cameras. The front doesnt work, like i expected.

    However, because its stuck at the screen with the shutter closed (?) I am unable to change it back to the rear camera.

    Without fixing it right now (no parts, they are one the way) is there an alternate way to change from the front camera to the rear without hitting the little switch button?

    You guys rock. Thanks!

    I just tried this on my phone and it worked.

    Do a hard reset holding down the power and home button until the apple logo appears and it reset the camera orientation back to the rear camera.
