    Device: 32GB Black iPhone 5 Verizon 6.1.2 Jailbroken (via Evasion)

    Problem: Front facing camera won't work in any app. When you try to switch to front facing camera the phone tries to switch but ends up going back to rear facing camera


    Any idea on how to fix this? My first guess would be to restore it but I heard you can't restore back to 6.1.2 and then I'd lose my jailbreak.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Seems like a restore will be the only fix
    for this sorry

    You can try to put phone in safe mode and see if it works then. If it does its a tweak ya got conflicting

    Unfortunately I don't know because I bought it as a 6.1.2 2-3 weeks ago and I didn't test out the front facing camera and then a few days later I jailbroke it so for all I know it could even be a hardware problem

    Very possible bring it in to apple. They will give ya another phone I would think. Firmware may be on 6.1.3 or later. So hard choice to do.
