camera lag on 4.4.2
i have some ridiculous lag on my samsung S4 (GT-I9505, running 4.4.2). When i boot into the camera the screen changes to showing what the camera sees, but I can't take a picture or focus the camera for around a minute.
I'm wondering if this is the same problem when other people are talking about lag with 4.4.2 (and therefore I should do a factory reset) or is this something else? Other apps don't seem to be showing noticeable lag. If i do perform a factory reset is that pointless if i use an app to backup my data and restore it? as in, is the factory reset only effective if i redownload all my apps, redo all my setting etc etc? If i can backup without making a factory reset pointless, is there a particular backup app that is better than any of the others?
Other possibly relevant info is
- my device is rooted
- i use folder mount to store stuff on my sd card (but the only folders i can image could potentially be related to this issue are cloudagent, dcim, documentsync and pictures)
- I'm running a stock rom (a german one) - build number KOT49H.I9505XXUFNB8
Thanks for any help/advice

Re: camera lag on 4.4.2
1. Change ROMs
2. Change Camera apps
If the ROM doesn't update alot, it sounds like the devolpers of the ROM aren't addressing the camera slowness. Is there a forum where the ROM has Q&A/troubleshooting help?
Factory reset can be done. Clear cache and dalvik cache still. Reflash the ROM from scratch.
Your custom recovery should have an option to backup the entire phone. You may want to backup your apps with Titanium Backup or something similar. Backup your phone in recovery and backup your apps BEFORE you flash the ROM.
