    I bought my Galaxy S7 Edge about a month ago and I've been loving it, however today I went to use a camera app from the play store (that I've been using fine for almost as long as I've had the phone) and it failed to open.
    No error message.

    I thought that was weird so I opened Snapchat.
    Camera wouldn't load.
    I then opened the default camera app and I got a simple "Camera failed" error.

    I did some reading and couldn't find much, but read some suggestions to wipe the system and dalvik caches from recovery. I would do this if I were capable, but I currently have TWRP recovery, which normally wouldn't be a problem, but TWRP currently can't get permission to write anything unless I wipe my phone, which I'm far from ready to do.

    So I essentially have two questions here:
    Most pressing, how could I go about getting my camera to work?
    If only through recovery, how do I return to stock recovery so that I'm actually capable of doing anything in it?

    I'm OP, I made this and forgot to log in, but I think it's pertinent to add that I just tried uninstalling the camera app and nothing changed. Also my model is the SM-G935W8 if that's relevant to anything.
