    Hi yesterday randomly my front camera stopped working. It says it won't initialize. If I reboot in safe mode, the camera works.. but I don't know what this means! Help please :(

    So a normal reboot doesn't fix it? Have you tried going in and cleaing data / cache in the camera app?

    Sounds like an app issue. Do you have any photo apps or camera apps you just installed or just updated?

    When I had an M, the camera did that to me once (not the front, the back) - I was trying to take a few pictures quickly and it just stopped and wouldn't initialize. I can't remember if it was the reboot or the data/cache clear that did it, but it worked after that.

    Rebooting the phone doesn't work, and the cashe is cleared already. I just deleted all the apps I downloaded that are in any shape way or form connected to the camera, but it still won't initialize!


    But now I rebooted it safe mode, and the camera isn't initializing anymore- but it was earlier. URGH!

    Did you clear the camera's data, as well as the cache? or just the cache?
