Re: [londroid] Trouble with cameras on some phones

From: Carl /.
Sent on: Sunday, February 12, 2012 11:09 AM
There are a couple of issues with the camera. Remember that newer
phones have 2 cameras and sometimes you have to force the camera
selection before using any camera api call. I have the 4g running ICS
thought and the camera is not working (ICS branch on xda).
