    Anybody else having camera troubles? You can launch the camera app once and it works fine, but after closing it, you cannot reopen it unless you reboot? When you try, it gives you an error saying it cannot connect to the camera?

    Trying to delete cache and stuff but I think this is a bug, and if so, it is a deal-breaker kind of bug. I love that they make these ROM's and stuff, and they can do some amazing things, but to drop the ball on such critical things makes it hard to justify using these ROM's. I cannot reboot my phone every time I want to take a picture. sigh...

    Looks like it is a problem with the 11/01 update, something is broken where you can launch the camera app and it works fine. When you close it, you cannot reopen it or else it either FC's, or it says it cannot connect. ROlling back to the 09/26 release works fine.

    So the devs are aware of it in case any of you are experiencing it. That and the battery life issue. My battery is draining fast, even with the screen off, and the battery monitor says that the "Android Keyboard" has used up 72% of my battery usage. Really weird.

    But I guess that this is the downside of ROMs. Yeah, they can be faster and less bloated, but in the end you spend a lot of time fixing them and all that, and a lot of things don't work properly and it seems to be a constantly ongoing process. In the end, I wonder if there is a real benefit. It's nice to have a faster phone, but if the flip-side is that I have to spend 45 minutes troubleshooting why my camera stopped working, and my battery life is suddenly half of what it was last week, any performance benefits might not be worth what you give up...

    Hopefully they can sort this stuff out.

    There is a fix for it but its still in review. There is the same problem on the OG Droid also. I made a build for the OG droid with the fix in it and the camera works fine. You will just have to wait till its approved or someone makes a build with it in it.

    Same camera issue here so back to my backup for now. Anyone know what happened to the custom carrier label in the status bar? Hmmm...

    They have sorted it out and found the files that 'broke' the cam. It should be in the next nightly and everything will be back to working again. For your battery issues, have you calibrated the battery lately? If not I would try that. It really does help. I still have great battery life on Rev's nightlies. Even with Juice Defender off, it's still only about 4-8% drain an hr with moderate use. With JD, it's much better.

    Cool. Only issue now is that ROM Toolboc FC's on my phone. Rebooted, wiped cache, Dalvic, fixed permissions, uninstalled and reinstalled, no good. I can launch the app, but as soon as I go to the ROM Manager portion, it FC's.

    Figures...

    Is there a direct link to Rev's GB nightlies that I can just bookmark and download directly to the phone and then use Recovery to install?

    Haven't a clue yet although I did see a revs nightly in rom manager app yesterday but it was 9-28 build

    To check you have to flash clockwork in app and select Droid x 2nd int'd if I'm not mistaken
