    I've noticed, since installing LM, that my pictures are being distorted.. It's not ALWAYS a problem, but I would say at least 75% percent of the time.

    Sometimes it's just little black dots, and others half of the image will be all messed up.. .. .. Here are a couple of shots.. one of just the dots... and the other of a more damaged image.

    I did a search and did not see anything on the forum... any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Ive never had the dots, but Ive definitely experienced the half-of-the-picture-missing thing (usually happens at night/in the dark)

    besides that anything past about 1.5 feet away makes me think my droid's camera needs glasses (I.E. blurry)... soo lemme know if you find anything

    NOT trying to be an smart-arse, but is the lens spotless? with such small camera lesses and being uncovered(no cap) this means a little bit on pocket fuzz or finger oil can "add" imagery. :-/

    Are their any dust particles under the lens you can see?

    RoyR80-no, i use my lens cloth (for my glasses) to clean the lens of the camera constantly...

    ilikemonkeygreen-no i don't believe there is any.. the phone is fairly new.. and what i know from photography.. dust wouldn't cause weird black "digital/pixel" spots.. you would just see fuzzy smudgy spots...

    -my terminology is amazing btw... lol

    So i've google searched for hours on end....

    only thing i'm coming up with is some autofocus fix that was issued back in nov.-dec 2009... wonder if my phone came preinstalled with this ota update/fix since i just bought it in june (or july.. don't remember now)....... BUT if that's the case in rooting my phone wouldn't i LOSE that update??

    One other thing i'm noticing is.. It's not when the image is captured that there is distortion.. it's more after it is saved..

    when the image is captured and "flashes" for a few seconds on the screen everything appears fine.. BUT once the image is saved and shows in the top right corner (gallery shortcut i guess) that's when i notice the image is distorted...

    I've never had this problem. Is this with the stock camera? I only ask, viz I never use the stock camera. I use camera zoom fx because I Luke the 6x zoom and the many filters.

    Well, now that you're having this problem, sound like it's not what I was going to suggest. Was wondering if maybe it had been caused by the gallery app. But now it sound like your camera might definitely be there culprit. Huh...

    Lets say it was the Gallery app... what could i do to fix that??? rebooted phone and FC stopped happening when i tried to launch camera so...

    the phone itself is acting pretty weird though in general.. i haven't changed anything in at least a week or more... and it was running fine then BAM just started acting weird.

    Hmmm, I would suggest deleting the camera app and the gallery app and then reinstall them both, but seeing that you said the whole thing is acting up lately, if back up my sd card and any apps on your phone, then I'd do a complete format of the sd card, a factory reset of the phone, and start over from scratch. I'm no expert, but if that were happening to me, that's what I'd do.

    Unrooting wouldn't be a bad idea either, but I don't know if that will isolate the issue? Won't that just put a new camera app on the phone?

    Idk what it would do honestly.. worst case scenario there is that problem IS NOT resolved and i replace the phone..

    i know there are some "easy" ways to get back to non rooted phone.. BUT seems like anyone i try to use involves downloading a file from a link that is broken..

    can anyone help me there??

    I use THIS thread to unroot/unbrick my phone. It'll get you back to 2.0.1 stock, but the OTA will download and get you back up to 2.2. It'll require you to reactivate your phone, but it does a good job and I've never had any problems with broken links.

    **EDIT***

    I should also mention that you'll have to use RSD Lite to flash the SBK file to your phone, but all the instructions are on there, so I don't even know why I'm adding this edit to it! lol, just a little brain fried right now, I guess.
