I just replaced a customer’s iPhone 7 Plus screen because it had cracked during a fall. After the repair the phone randomly reboots just like described above. If I disconnect the front camera cable everything is working as intended.

Already tried reconnecting the front camera cable, reinserting it into place, reconnecting all flat cables and shields. I even tried with the original screen (which still works despite the cracks) but same results. Device reboots and fails whenever the front camera cable is inserted.

Guess I’ll try ordering a new flatcable assembly to see if that gives any improvements :/
