    Question Camera Error, Can't connect to the camera

    Hello, I'm currently having this issue with my Nexus 4 (Carbon-ROM, Kitkat Nightly 20140410-0900) that when I go into my camera app or anything that uses the camera service such as torch light it doesn't work and shows an error message

    Camera error
    Can't connect to the camera

    This happened after I was trying out the new Google Camera app, I uninstalled the app but it now gives me the error every time I use the normal camera app. Not sure what I should do now, any ideas? Thanks

    Reflash your Gapps... if that doesn't work, dirty flash the ROM ZIP and Gapps and clear cache and dalvik.
