    downgraded not only to GDR2, but 1 and 3 as well, hard resets, soft resets, different roms and now even different csc as many countries have started receiving official updates except ATO, tried only official updates and also tried official updates alongside with Dev preview, tried with different roms only with Dev preview and then installing official on top of it, nothing works, as soon as i not on gdr 1,2 or 3 camera does not load, it worked for few months with Dev preview but not no way to use it on 8.1. even changed language / region combinations many times just in case, no luck so far
    Ok, here is what you gonna try:
    - Remove preview for developers (you can always get that later if you want)
    - Hard reset your phone
    - Downgrade to GDR3 (or GDR2, depends on which one your camera worked better)
    - From the post in the last 2-3 pages see which CSC's got the update 8.1.1 (for i can remember they were: ATO, NEE, DBT, BTU, PHN and TGY). Maybe there are other CSC's that are getting the 8.1.1 update but we haven't heard of it nor we have confirmation. For these 6 i mention we do have that.
    - So, In case you have NEE on your CSC List, choose that, and hit Check for Updates button and you'll get the newest 8.1.1 update. Here is a link from my post how i got it with NEE, read it, remember it and go for it. If you don't have NEE you already have ATO so choose that. http://forums.windowscentral.com/sam...tm#post2838261
    - Do not install or activate Preview for Developers once you downgrade to GDR3.
    - If you manage to install the 8.1.1 update, please notify me or us so we can know your problem is solved. :)
    Here are my first impressions or findings about the new 8.1.1 update, you might wanna read that:

    sorry
    but sounds like you (insert any kind Word) ******* up your phone. Why did you use different roms? You should use only 1... 1 with ATO thats in the topic with the title "Revert back...."

    maybe the hardware was damaged due to inappropriate manipulation

    Well, you better explain in details what have you done, every step by step so we can manage to figure it out what you screw up with your phone. Cuz, Pappale might be right in his post, you might screw up something flashing too many ROMs. You DO NOT flash a new ROM over the other one, that's a golden rule :)
    Ok, we are waiting for you detailed explanation what exactly you have done, starting from the very beginning. :)

    That was the first thing i was searching in the 8.1 Store and didn't find it, so it's pulled off for time being i guess, but to be honest, the stock camera in the new 8.1.1 firmware works perfect. Just few hours ago we celebrate my sisters' bday, i was snapping pictures, then turn it to video and record it, then back to picture, took some more.etc And i was doing that continuously, without getting out from the stock camera for about 30 minutes. Cam didn't crash at me, it worked like a champion. :)

    Agreed, I checked on the store page for ATIV Camera on my PC just now and it's no longer a test submission so it should be released soon.

    Anyone tried to flash back to GDR 2 or 3 from official 8.1? I feel like I was a bit premature to flash a rom just to get the ATO CSC. Tried to go back and get back to my proper CSC, but can't flash it. The phone never shows up in the WP8 download tool and device manager shows it wrong.

    What other CSC's you have in your current CSC List?
    Or you can try to explain better (in details) what is happening to you and your device, cuz from what i have read (your post) i can't really understand you. :)

    well the reason I am sure (maybe I am wrong) camera issue has nothing to do with flashing different roms is because it started before I flashed first time any rom and since then nothing changed.
    few months ago I've been running gdr3 that i received via ota and i enrolled into d.preview and upgraded to 8.1, all was fine during 3 months, except few issues that almost everyone faced like flash, switching between photo and video in camera, ringtone reset and etc, but more or less camera was ok.
    beginning of october after updating to 8.10.14176.243 my camera did not load anymore ( http://forums.windowscentral.com/sam...ml#post2789057 ) ( http://forums.windowscentral.com/sam...tm#post2826461 ) nor hard nor soft resets could solve it, so that's when i flashed my rom first time reverting back to gdr3 according to this guide http://forums.windowscentral.com/sam...-wp8-1-dp.html

    Cheers for that Boris, sorry for confusing you. It finally worked. Not sure why it wouldn't work before. I have flashed back to GDR3 and my original CSC from official 8.1 and ATO using the 3.47 SMD binary downloader.
    I tried to do this last night and it wouldn't work, the download tool wouldn't register that my phone was plugged in. Today it did and now I am back on official GDR3 with my correct and original CSC.

    ATO and official 8.1 were 99% good, but just had a couple of niggly issues for me so hopefully if I get the official update for the NZ region, I won't have those issues and everything will work perfectly.

    hardware failure is still a valid explanation

    you can do only 1 thing: revert back and start again. Revert back to GDR 2 with CSC ATO and after that update your phone via official updates. If the camera wont work than you can do nothing

    if its hardware failure then why does camera work if i am on gdr1,2 or 3? it just refuses to load under 8.1, looks like more software related to me
    i have reverted back to gdr2 with csc ato and then updated my phone via official source at least 10 times already :(

    looks like you have 3 choices:
    1) use ativ with 8.0 and camera
    2) use ativ with 8.1.1 without camera
    3) put 8.0 on ativ and sell it

    I dont know, If I would know I would tell you :)
    but I am 90% sure that you did something wrong. Flashing a phone 10 or more times again and again and again isnt a good idea

    Updates are rolled out based on CSC and IMEI Number so you just need to wait, your phone will get it eventually.

    I would also say to those people who are using the PfD, when you get the new firmware make sure you do a factory reset as, for me at least, battery life has improved and several bugs from the PfD are now gone.
