    My camera app started to freeze on open. This issue started to happen all of a sudden.
    Thinking it to be software issue , I installed Cm10.(got rid of the stock)

    It did not fix the issue. It does work sometimes but very rarely.
    I keep getting "Can't connect to camera". Sometimes I get "gallery isnt responding".

    I found the following stack trace

    V/CameraHolder( 9656): open camera 0
    W/CameraService( 139): CameraService::connect X (pid 9656) rejected (existing client).
    E/CameraHolder( 9656): fail to connect Camera

    Do any one have any idea what could be going on ?

    I'd try clearing the camera app cache. If that doesn't work then rebooting to recovery and clearing cache/dalvik.

    And if clearing the cache doesn't work, do a dirty flash (flash the Rom over itself without wiping). This will overwrite any corrupted or missing files with the correct ones.

    I did flash the rom again. Did not help.

    Do you have any themes in use? I just had the same issue and when I have my blackout theme active my camera doesn't work. Without the theme it works just fine. Try it.
