    I'm looking to flash the chevy ss camera ( the original style that has the focus points in the corners instead of in the center) but I'm not sure how to package the zip file. I've tried pulling the apk from his 4.9 ROM and zipping that to flash but got no change. I'm assuming from that, that there is more to it than this. Any help appreciated!

    Bump it, no one? I really hate the UD camera's. They either don't work or are very laggy.

    Woot! My 1,000th post!

    Anyways, yes there's more to it than just zipping the .apk. It has to be packaged into an update.zip. If you go to my sig to the "Droid Files" and then download the "update_template_for_SPR.zip" file you can then put the plain Camera.apk file from SS4.9 in that zip file under /system/app/. Then you can install it using your favorite custom recovery image with the usual method.

    However, make sure you make a backup as even still chevy's camera app may still not play nice with your rom. From best to worse; it'll just work, it'll be buggy, it'll bork something else on your rom, your phone will not boot at all.

    good luck and merry christmas

    Thanks for the help, I'll have to wait until I'm at a computer because sigs don't show on the app.
