    Is anyone else having a problem with the camera not working? I'm running rubix focused 1.9.5. And the stock camera does not work and anyone I download from the market does not work either

    can you elaborate on what "not working" means?
    does it just not load the app?
    does it not take pics?

    Camera Not Working

    I'm having the same problem, no camera & no hd recording. It takes the picture but does not go into the gallery, just a black frame where the picture should be.

    thanks J

    This happened to me when I wasn't on the right version before installing the ROM. The stock video player also didn't work and Quadrant failed on the H.264 test. I'm guessing you weren't on the .340 OTA before installing 1.9.5.

    Did you do the .340 OTA or did you patch your way up to .340? Your bootloader should show version 30.04

    Restore your backup from before you installed rubiX and see if the camera works then. If not, it's just your phone. If it does, try wiping and re-installing the ROM.

    The smart alec in me wants to say "did you check the lens cap"
    I know, not helpful but it was the first thing I thought of. (to many years of video)

    Dodongo. I ran my backup and the camera worked. Then I wiped and reinstalled rubix and the camera did not work also tried gummyjar and the camera doesn't work on that either

    I had the same issue also. I had 1.9.0 Rubix, then applied the patch to go to .340 from this thread:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/drod2169-x/104626-patch-focused-1-9-0-update-2-3-340-a.html

    In the end, I guess I didn't read something important, or it just didn't take, but it didn't appear to update my kernel to 2.6.32.9-g55626e1. I'm assuming the ROM is built around this, but I could be wrong; hopefully someone can correct me if I am. I tried loading in a couple of the newest ROMs out there to test things out, like Fission, but they all had the broken camera too, which got me focusing on the path below.

    In the end, I just loaded up the SBF, which was quick and easy, then took the OTA .340 update from Verizon (through settings). After that, I loaded up 1.9.5 and everything was smooth as could be.

    I looked around for a while and didn't really find anything helpful to fix this. Hopefully this post can get you a resolution you're happy with. Good luck.

    The same thing happened to me. While installing the ROM, I wiped data, installed zip, then wiped cache.

    Camera didn't work.


    Then I did it again, but this time I wiped data, wiped cache, installed zip, then wiped cache again. Then Camera works fine.

    No idea why. Or if it was another thing that fixed it.

    That patch ONLY updated Focused to work with the 2.3.340 kernel, it was NEVER meant to update your phone to 2.3.340 (Focused, nor that patch will touch your kernel/bootloader/baseband/etc.)

    The way to verify you are properly on 2.3.340, is by checking kernel version.
    If you go to about phone, and it says you have any kernel other than
    2.6.32.9-g55626e1

    Then you are NOT on 2.3.340.....

    Sephtin the kernel I'm on is the one you suggested... Should I try deleting wiping cache and data again to let you know what happens

    Ya, I would wipe cache/data, and then try reloading the ROM again... (in case mod/theme/??? something is causing it)...
