When in doubt, pull the battery out!
I have a theory:
I'd be willing to bet that the reason the phone reboots under the .191 .sfi is because when the .cod file tells the camera to start, it begins to perform an "improper hardware function" and for safety the camera quickly shuts itself down and reboots the phone.
I bet that one time, your phone did not shut itself down quickly enough and the .sfi file allowed the camera hardware to operate improperly too long thus causing a dead camera.
At this point I don't believe it is software related.

kinda sounds like the camera is fried at this point, but thanks for the heads up. Good luck fixing it

forgive me, as I'm sure you thought of this also. I've noticed there are a bunch of new app permissions, something about camera shutter one of them. Is this old news? Or could it fix something?
Hey man, if the camera isn't working due to a factory setting that cannot be changed by the end user, it might be saved when you backed up your phone with DM... if you haven't already, try to just restore your phone with a .ipd from before you started messing with the .cod's and maybe it will restore the setting.
Reading this, it just brings one thing to mind:
Remember, it's VERY rare for software to cause a hardware failure (unless of course we're talking about overclocking software) - it COULD be the case, but this is more likely just an unfortunate coincidence.
