@Mr.Buster some do show it, others don't, depends on the manufacturer.

@Dan your answer is incorrect, the offending app seems to cause problems!

comment dexopt produces a segmentation fault preventing boot-up
dexopt is not at fault here - ip7.bathuniapp what is this app? That is inducing the fault.

I have taken the liberty in editing this question (you should have enclosed a linky to the website of the device if its not well known!). The Wifi MAC address will only show, when the Wifi is activated.

comment Does 3G has to start and stop with every transmission? (energy overhead)
what head or tail are you referring to? Does not make sense. As @chakh stated, care to pin-point specifically what is the problem at hand?

comment using cam in gotomeeting
Judging by the reviews and comments - it could well explain why there's no camera facility, perhaps write a 1-star review on the playstore explaining why and ask for ETA for a camera integration?

comment What should I try to bring a rear camera back to life?
Google will not deliver automatically via their updater found in Settings > About Phone > Update - that only applies to Nexus series only.

comment What should I try to bring a rear camera back to life?
Try it, but what makes me question it, is there actually a official updater for the MTK6589T chipset? You may have to google-fu around a small bit, probably end up hitting some site somewhere in China, just be careful! :)

Interesting spec, just spoke to someone about it - a HTC One clone! Uhmmm... might be best to get an RMA on the device and return it back to get that camera fixed?

are you running an app that is chewing up the battery - use BetterBatteryStats to find the culprit?

comment What should I try to bring a rear camera back to life?
Can you enclose a picture of the device in question or a linky? Its hard to tell from the question above? If its faulty and is a no-name chinese phone, there is a very good chance that there is no known update either, or that your friend got ripped off?

And quite possibly all those ROMs are using the same or derivative of that kernel that has the issue.
