basically whilst fixing my iphone (smashed screen..again!), i accidentally ripped a cable. it appears to be the one that links to the front facing camera!

i am planning on getting the iphone 5 when it comes out in summer, so im not that fussed about the FFC. but if i still reconnected everything up, minus the camera cable. would it still work?!

I did the same thing and phone was okay
I could even take a picture and save it
but i also (**** curiosity) hit the button to flip to face-side camera and now I have not camera. How can I make phone go back to regular camera?
I took battery out and this did not help.

Also, if I want to fix it, anyone know where I can buy the part?

do a hard reset and that should cause it to go back to the back camera if not then restore it and dont select the front camera. I did the same thing last summer.
