The camera in a Samsung Galaxy SII GT-I9100 shows a black screen. Photos cannot be taken either. However, pressing the shutter does seem to activate the flash sometimes. Even the front cam fails!

I've tried flashing a few custom ROMs (4.3 based Carbon ROM) over recovery. The ROM works, but the camera gives the same result. I even tried to flash an official JellyBean stock ROM for S2 via Odin. Camera still fails.

Logcat (filter level: 'error') shows:-

E/SecCameraHardware( 1839): nativeGetPreview: warning, ESD reset the camera device (6)
E/SecCameraHardware( 1839): FimcV4l2 poll: error 0

The worst I could fear is the camera sensor being busted, but is there any other software level stuff I could possibly try out?
