Cannot Find Camera Front-to-Back Switch Option
Hello, follow Android fans. I am having an issue with my Nexus 7 2013 (and yes, it's definitely a 2013 and not a 2012) running rooted with KitKat. I cannot for the life of me find the option to switch from the front to the back camera. I have read Google's instructions for the Camera app, but the switch option does not appear where the instructions say it should, nor is it in any menu in the app. Non-stock camera apps are similarly missing an option to switch, so could it be a driver issue? Is the OS not recognizing the back camera for some reason? I have searched high and wide for reports of a similar issue, but to no avail.
Again, there is definitely a camera back there. I like my face and all, but since the 2013 was nice enough to come with a back camera, I'd like to use it. Thanks!

Re: Cannot Find Camera Front-to-Back Switch Option
You are missing the switch between front/back camera. I took a screenshot of my camera's options. You can see the switch you tap to toggle back/front camera as the option to the right of the settings selection. I wonder if you lost that when you rooted your phone?
