    Welcome to Android Central! Please tell us which phone you're using. What do you mean when you say, "Now it just goes to the home screen when I get on"? Does the rear-facing camera still work? When you open the Camera app, do you still see the toggle to switch between the rear- and front-facing cameras?

    I have the same issue.
    Android Mini
    Toggle disappeared that allowed forward facing camera. I have forced close on camera, tried third party app, did a factory reset. All to no avail. I did get a whole bunch of pictures of me looking at my phone with a very confused and frustrated look on my face. Not pretty.

    Further observation includes:
    Clear cache data = no change
    Clear all app data and force close = when camera is restarted the icon to return to forward facing camera is there but when I touch it I get another horrible self portrait and it disappears again.

    Sorry, but which Mini do you have? There are a number of phones out there that have a Mini added to the model name. Any recent updates, either to the system or the camera app?

    I have a Droid Ultra and have been having the same exact issue which seems to happen upon installing the KitKat update. When I did a system reset I had the weird experience of having the forward facing camera work sporadically. Usually, if the battery would die out completely the function would return. Now that I allowed the reinstallation of the update...same issue. I have been searching for some fix.
