I'm using a G925I purchased from 2degrees and I've been getting the dreaded "Camera Failed" and "EVT or Cal error. Please change your test device" errors.


Previously I fixed the error by updating/changing my kernel and a mix of clearing the cache. However, I'm believing that it might've been pure luck that it worked.So far I've re-flashed every possible thing (BL, Kernel, ROM, Modem) and my camera is still spitting out the error.


At this point I'm a little unsure if it's a hardware error or not. I'm hoping it isn't, as any repairs that happen with 2degrees go through an authorized Samsung repair center iirc, and I don't think they'd take too kindle to a phone with tripped knox. 


I've also taken a look at my camera firmware versions and the rear camera firmware displays NULL where as the front camera (which works fine) displays its correct firmware versions and details.

Hi HappilyInsane,


I feel for you really sad, um if it were me I think I would return the device back to factory so to sammobile and get the appropriate ROM. If nothing else youy reestablishing a baseline of a known good release for that device. If everything works you can smile then look to mod again if not there maybe an issue that is not software but a least being on the factory ROM even if you have tripped KNOX I would think should put you in a better position to talk to Samsung.
