The same thing will happen if you attempt to access your device camera using a third-party app with camera support (e.g., Instagram, Pixlr Express, etc.). You will still get the same message so the only way for you to bring your camera app back to normal is to reactivate it using the Cameraless application.

To do so, just go back to the app’s main menu and instead of selecting the option “Disable camera”, just tap the option for “Enable camera” and that’s it. You’re done.

Keep in mind that this method will be automatically applied regardless if your device is only equipped with a rear camera or a front camera or both. If your camera is disabled, you also won’t be able to use your device’s “capture screenshot” function.
