hi,
impossible unless you have broken your front camera, try using another 3rd party software that can access your front camera, if using another 3rd party software camera you can use your front camera than try to factory reset maybe default camera software got error.

as long as it not system applications, just do factory reset or hard rest. it will remove all your installed applications include auto install applications

are you using china version ? or international firmware version. as you know china version firmware have many unwanted china applications and it cannot be remove unless you install international version firmware. or root your phone and remove from system directory

follow this http://bit.ly/1Dvexbs, it will bring you to update S175 international version. all root app is not safer because using root apps you can delete system apps that make brick your device
