How does one simply lose their front camera I'm pretty sure that it's built into the phone and it can't be removed easily

No offense, but if you really want some help, you need to provide some more information!!!

"bc Google have problems". <-- What problem are you referring to? The guy who doesn't clean up after his dog takes a crap in the park next to Google's headquarters? Or the legal issues they have because of the EU? Something else?

Are you rooted? If so, what ROM? Any mods? When did the problem start? Have you rebooted? Etc..
What are the symptoms? How do you know that your front camera is not working? Which app?

After reading through that google forum, it seems to be hardware (maybe one exception). Have you attempted to contact google? There was a camera update this past week, but as posters in that forum said, it didn't solve the problem.

Well you are fresh out of luck bud so since you don't have a computer I'm going to assume you are not rooted which could pose a problem you can try and downloading Google Camrea and see if you are able to access your front camrea from there

Flashing the factory image requires a computer.

If you don't have one I'd suggest contacting Google for a return.

I second that recommendation.

Given that you don't have access to a computer to try to reflash the factory images, you can try a factory reset. Note that it will wipe all your data out, so backup anything you need from that device (pictures/videos/whatever).

Also, (without a computer) I assume you are unrooted, on a stock ROM. If not, a factory reset may not help (if it is a problem with the ROM/mod that you flashed). I ask this because your thread title references a "Flash.zip"

Did you have this problem from the day you got the phone? or did it start after you installed a specific app?

Are you tapping the three dots as seen in the first pic here?



After you tap those dots, you should then be presented with this. As you can see, there is an option for the front facing cam.

Ok, everyone here is assuming that your phone is nexus 5. I think not as this phone has arm 7 cpu.
Also what I suspected before with the other two screen shots that the camera app has to be modified as it has lens blur option in the old app gui. Now we can see that it has custom rom, custom kernel, older version of radio.
Let me guess did you buy this phone off someone for a good price? If this phone is a nexus 5 someone flashed a rom meant for a different phone.
The guys here may help you only if you let them know what kind of phone it is.

i stumbled onto your thread in xda. by comparing these two threads, i have not heard of all those roms that you flashed in your phone!! that being said there is nothing wrong with playing with a nexus but you have to have a computer so you can fastboot your way out of a jam! like now. the easiest thing for you to do is flash stock.
the two people helping you on that thread simms22 and rootsu are both very knowledgeable and gave you good advice. you did not understand what they said and downloaded the wrong gApps file. what simms22 meant by "take whatever you need" is the "pa_gapps-stock-4.4.2-20140421-signed.zip" file.
you downloaded and flashed the 4.3.3 file.
give it a try. if it does not work then simms22's suspicion could be correct and you having cyanogen mod is the culprit. get a computer and go back to stock.

As far as I'm aware, unlocking the bootloader requires a computer. (There are exceptions, but they require you're already rooted)

Honestly, I would try a different ROM if the solution above doesn't work. I hadn't heard of that ROM until I went digging after you mentioned it. I'm sure its a great ROM, but its really easy to determine if it was a ROM issue by flashing something else. If you reboot after flashing the ROM and try the camera before flashing gapps, that will let you know if its your gapps that is the problem as well.

Just flash a different ROM and the gapps that go with it you can use Helium to back up games and such I also recommended doing a clean install when flashing a "New" ROM and gapps (clean install means factory reset in recovery then flashing)

TeamWin recovery (touch friendly) or CWRM (swipe or volume-rocker navi) whichever is your preference. Both are in IMG files so your gonna need to update it on your phone through fastboot, which you'll need your friend's laptop again for that.

Whatever recovery you currently have (that you used to flash your ROM the first time) should work just fine.

Well since he established he already flashed a ROM and is already rooted all this person would need to do is download a preferred ROM and gapps and flash simple really

Edit: basically every rom for the nexus 5 is stable just picking one is the hard part

I'd really recommend one based on stock or AOSp, and not CM for the purposes of troubleshooting.

Try something like cataclysm
Hook and jlede like this.

I've never heard of mandi but I've used Mahdi for a while before switching to resurrection remix 5.0.9 (which RR 5.0.9 is cm based I wouldn't recommended it for you just stick with what you have now)
