Kernel Panic even after second restore

Block Image

Please can someone tell me what this is supposed to mean and how i can solve it?

I restored the phone 2 times already and it keeps doing the restart and loop thing.

I don't have varranty anymore ad i doubt anyone could repair it in a normal store anyway, we don't have apple service in my town.

In addition, my phone never had any issues before and it just started doing this 2 days ago..

all help is welcome

thank you

Hm, actually now that you ask i had a drop where the screen popped out a little.

As you can see on the image.

I don't know about any liquid damage.

Are you sure it's the front cam and not the back one?

Unfortunately i haven't had the time yet to go and let someone fix the screen pop.[image|1050253]

Hi,

Have you had any recent drops or liquid damage?

Try unplugging the front camera, as this can usually cause it, if so, replace front camera. :-)

The back camera wouldn't usually cause a kernel panic like that, and it usually is the front camera.

Your screen is in pretty bad shape though, but again, screens don't cause kernel panics either

by

With it being dropped, it may have damaged the proximity sensor, which is attached to front cam and causing the panic.

Hm hm hm, is there any other way of figuring this out without going to a smartphone repair place, asking them to replace the front camera, put back the screen where it's supposed to be and wait and see?

I mean, is there a way of figuring out it out for sure without guessing?

In any case, i appreciate your help more than you could imagine!

I thought i could already throw the phone to the trash.

by

Only way to find out, is to open the phone up, unplug the front camera, and then start the phone up and see if it starts up correctly or not, if it does, then front camera needs replacing as mentioned, if it doesn't, it's something else.
