    I am runing BBV5, but had the same problem when I was running BBV4. My Droid 1 will randomly open the camera app and take a picture roughly every 4 seconds. It doesn't matter if it is laying on a table, in the charging cradle, in my pocket etc. I don't know if is a hardware issue, being caused by another app or what. Anyone else having this issue as it is extremely annoying and filling up memory with random pictures. I don't want to do a factory reset because of having it rooted and customized with apps. Thanks for any help.

    I know there are some security programs that will, among other things, allow you to remotely take pictures in case your phone is ever stolen.

    Well to start out I would make a backup of your phone and do a factory reset and wipe everything. That way you will know if it is a software thing or a hardware thing. Then you can restore your backup.

    It is hard to tell, if it is a set interval I would guess software, if not I would say hardware. Like the camera button is faulty and it is getting false presses, launching the app and then taking a picture.
