I have a Nexus 5 running on Android 4.4.4 Kitkat, and the mm-qcamera-daemon problem appeared today for the first time (I don't have the usual culprits like Snapchat or Skype).

Does Android L Developer Preview fix this issue?

  • Since this is a developer preview not intended for full-time, normal use, you may find the cure is worse than the disease: even if this problem is fixed, there might be new problems that are harder to live with. – Dan Hulme Jul 14 '14 at 14:27
  • @DanHulme Well, yeah maybe, but I can't think of a worse problem than the battery being discharged extremely quickly. – Rick Sanchez Jul 14 '14 at 14:32
  • The battery being discharged extremely quickly such that the CPU melts. That's not likely on a dev preview, though. But deleting all your data, not being able to access the cellular network, or being unable to use a particular app are all more likely outcomes which would be problems for everyday use. – Dan Hulme Jul 14 '14 at 15:21
  • @DanHulme Thanks, I'm gonna stick to KitKat at least until the official release. Also I thing I found the culprit in my case, because I remember that earlier in the day this app play.google.com/store/apps/… malfunctioned, and must have caused the problem. – Rick Sanchez Jul 15 '14 at 11:29

Unfortunately I was still getting this issue (seems to come and go) under android L, so to answer your question, no, it's not fixed.

See https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=70755 for others who are reporting the issue still exists.

  • Fast forward to October 2014 and December 2014, Google's Android devs claimed that it has been fixed and added a few layers of protection on Android 5.0 Lollipop, though your mileage may vary. – Andrew T. Dec 9 '19 at 4:33
