Pretty much what the topic title says. An installable zip to add sparkle* to your Gingerbread ROM.
DO NOT install this and go straight at setting the highest speed shown. That would almost certainly do dreadful things and make your mother wonder where she went wrong in raising you. :P
I've personally found 902MHz to be a pretty good top setting, but you may have more or less luck than me. Feel free to fiddle with speeds until you get it right for your hardware, but do it gently.

In case of an upside down front camera (likely if you use a ROM based on P771FV1.0.0B05 such as F'N'C3,) use this instead:

MediaFire: sfii-oc-kernel-060312-flip.zip
RapidShare: sfii-oc-kernel-060312-flip.zip

* OK, no sparkle. It does add overclocking though.

Really? You definitely flashed sfii-oc-kernel-060312.zip?

I ask because until I made a small change this afternoon the front camera was upside down with the 2 phones I tested. Could you run it through again, and if it's still like that I'll have a little think.

I've found 902MHz to be pretty solid on 2 different devices.

You're more than welcome to. Consider it a swap for all the use the girlfriend and myself have had of your ROMs. ;)

Thanks dude :). Just out of interest can you tell me where the code is added so I can have a gander? Its just one of those things I never played with and curiosity is the reason I started to play with Android.

That's *really odd. The changes I made to the camera source today were only in the registers for the 7690 camera on the front. The main camera is unchanged. Which ROM are you using? I've tested it against 2, but I can install the same as you to see if I can replicate the problem.

Sorry dude, yeah the front camera (the one looking at me yeah?) is the upside down one.


Not sure if something went wrong when i restored my titanium after installing F&C rls3.

Still a bit new at all this lol

Yeah, I flashed it again and the front facing camera is upside down but only if you hold the phone in portrait mode, in landscape mode the image is correct, weird.

Just bought the LG Camera App Pro so I'll see how that goes :)


EDIT: Works fine as surfungus said, looks like a nice app

Here's the link if you want to get it :

Looks like something is changed between different base ROMs. I just tested against Fish'N'Chips RLS3 and had the same issue. Quick fix now I know what to change though - I've added a flipped version to the first post which will do you fine.

In the kernel source tree under drivers/media/video/msm
The file holding the built in settings for the front camera is ovm7690_reg_fpc.c and is a little dry to say the least. The relevant chunk of code for the vertical flip is up toward the top.
{0x0c, 0x96, BYTE_LEN, 0},
{0x0c, 0xd6, BYTE_LEN, 0},
{0x0c, 0x46, BYTE_LEN, 0},
{0x0c, 0x06, BYTE_LEN, 0},

To flip the image I swapped lines 1 and 2, and lines 3 and 4.

Nice going, I installed the OC. Installed the LGPro (purchased version) and used the unflipped version to keep the LGCam the right way up or wrongside down. ;-)

EDIT: Thanks to Psycho for details on the LG Cam App....

*** Just remember, any ROM change, Kernel change or any other type of change you do is at your own risk. Someone helping you is not responsible for any risks you decide to take. It works for many but their are situations, events and errors outside of the control of a third party that may cause a bricked phone. Think before you start. I took the chance and thankfully it worked for me. Had it not then only I would have been to blame. ***

The difficulty there is not so much producing one as doing it with the soft keys working properly. I can't test that here, but I did have a bit of a fiddle. If you're feeling brave you can give it a whirl: vivacitytest.zip

Works great Fuzzra. Camera is fine front and back. Currently clocked to 925mhz running fast and cold.
All the capacitive buttons are working as expected. Lights are on in low-ish light... seems more sensitive than previously (not a bad thing - good in fact! :)) but hard to tell.
