1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    xda-developers - View Single Post - MIUI camera app for CM7 [New Version posted 5-28]

    This MIUI camera works on my D2 running CM7. :)

    You can read through the thread, but this post has the current/best build that works on my D2 running CM7.

    Push APK to /system/app, then set permissions to 644 and owner to root/root (basically match setting of other APKs in /system/app.

    Pretty cool - starts up and shoots and just works! Full-screen option (which I missed from Blur camera) and other nice features.

    Video even recorded (though FC after playback and return to the camera).

    Hmmm...installed MIUI Gallery (same process as above) and it is very fast.

    You may be able to flash this from CW, I just pulled the APK from it, copied to /system/app, set permissions and owner, and restarted Launcher Pro and the icon was there and it worked. YMMV, you might have to restart...

    Camera is great, gallery on the other hand, unfortunately you can't Zoom on the pics, kinda a deal breaker for me, if they get that fixed, it would be awesome..

    Funny, I hadn't noticed that...I don't really use or need zoom in the gallery very much, I guess.

    What do you mean when you say to set permissions to 644? I went to permissions in root explorer and it didn't bring up any numbers at all. Not sure how I would set it to 644.

    In Root Explorer, long press and select permissions from the context menu, then select all the items in the first column, first one in the second column.

    Look at permissions of any other app in the /System/App folder and match that

    Yeah I went ahead and done that because I figured it needed to be the same. The number is what threw me off. Gallery works great too. Thank you.

    Linux permissions are a new, odd thing to understand for us Windows types. :)

    Also, if you use apk installer, you should back up and uninstall the aosp camera first, otherwise out will open that one only after your first use of the new camera.

    How do you push it to system/app? I downloaded it and tried to move it but it said read only file?

    You need to use ADB shell (requires SDK on your PC) or you can use an app like Droid Root Explorer (highly recommended - anyone w/root should have Root Explorer or an app like it).

    W/Root Explorer you copy/paste the file to the /system/app directory (after selecting the button at the top of the Root Explorer screen to set the directory to R/W (read/write).

    After pasting the file, long-press and set permissions as noted previously, and long press and set ownership to root/root.

    Then tap the button to set the directory back to Read Only (R/O) and exit.
