Default camera flash not working.....

hey everyone...i was messing around with my camera and i noticed that my flash does not work when set to "on" or "auto". i have a app called power toggles and the flash works when i turn it on through the power toggles widget. so i know it does work. i am rooted and have rom toolbox. i have only deleted the bloatware that we know is safe to do. yesterday i tried to install google now through the steps posted by diego1593 but could not complete the process bcause of me deleting bloatware. i merged the files i needed to with /system/, but after realizing i couldnt go any further, i deleted ONLY the new files i had merged into "system", basically reversing the process like it never happened. i didnt mess with anything else. i wonder what the problem is? should i uninstall the app "power toggles"? or did rom toolbox disable it somehow? any help would be greatly appreciated..thanks in advance!

That happened to me and google now doesnt messes with your flash and it the power toggels flash does mess it up because i used to have a flashflight app and everytime i used it my camera flash wouldnt function till i delete the app so you can delete power toggles and re do google now if you want (:

The unbrick guide looks like the only option left if you dont wanna return it

If your phone is rooted, why not use the pimp my ROM app and see if the flash tweaks will help?

I have the same issue. LG motion, non rooted.
Suddenly, my cameras, flash and flashlight apps won't work,and any application that uses these will force close, as will any hardware diagnostic apps as soon as I select the camera or the flash led. I've run virus scans, gone through all my apps and uninstalled all the one that the permissions say take pictures, & videos and control flash, (downloaded apps, not system ). I just can't figure this one out.
