I just bought a i9250 Nexus, and the system proposed to upgrade to newer version 4.2.1 (it is not a rooted phone. It is an unblocked UK phone)

I played with the new phone and after a couple of days I did upgrade it.

Now the camera is not working. When I try to use the camera, it calls the application and before I can see any image from camera, it says "Unfortunately the GALLERY has stopped"

How can I downgrade to previous version? (The phone is not rooted)

Or, does anybody knows how to fix it? or anything that I can try to bring the camera back to action?

Have you tried clearing the data of the camera or gallery apps? – Al E. Apr 10 '13 at 13:41

An update to 4.2.2 should fix the bugs. My Galaxy Nexus has been running a lot more stable since the update. You should be able to find the update in Settings>>About Phone>>System Updates.
