    I am currently running a Rom and the camera is really grainy for me, I love the rom but the camera issue is big for me. Rather than switching Rom's I am wondering what I need to do to pull a camera apk from another Rom? Say I wanted to pull the camera apk from a stock rom, is it as simple as downloading the stock rom to my comp, unzipping it and finding the apk and putting it in system/app to replace the current one, then fix permissions?? I don't know if that will work or not, can anyone give me a step in the right direction?

    Edit: I tried it the way I though it should work and it worked perfectly!!!

    Do you think you could post that APK? My camera is also grainy so I was wondering if the one you had was better. Think you could post it?

    You may have to rename it Camera.apk depending upon what your current camera is named in system/app.

    Well I replaced the app in the system/app folder and now my camera app has disappeared. Mine was also named CameraGoogle so I just directly replaced it. What happened?

    How did you "replace it" - also does it show after a reboot ?

    when you put it in system/app it should have asked you to replace the current apk, did it do that?
