Front Camera on CM6 / CM7

Recommended Posts

i was thinking that thx to your and others works, the possibility to port visio/video call on cm7.2 should be soon there :) this is my feeling .but i might be wrong...would it be better to try with um840 rom?

so i don't know about other videocall app that might be tested.

fring does work ok. it even has a contact to call and test the videocall.

Could you give me some clues why I don't have msm_camera1 device? I use the Styx CM6.1 rom in which this solution is supposed be working - but as I mentioned I don't have both camera devices, only the back one...

1. Do you have both cameras working when you use an official 2.1 rom?

no -> your phone is broken -> nothing can be done

yes -> continue with 2

2. Only if you can say 'yes' to 1: Do you have working front cam with .29 kernel based CM + camswitch (e.g. styx .29)?

no -> no idea what's wrong (because kernel is almost like stock, cam should work there if it did in 1.)

yes -> you possibly use a cam sensor that is not supported by kernel .32 **

** if you end up here you might need to ask pier11 for further help. I've sold my pulse yesterday so there's not much I can experiment any longer...

Glad to see you are moving on. This is taking too much time. But please, please, please. before you leave us for good could you recompile libhardware_legacy of cm7 mod so we can use softmac solution. I will test it.. I hope that this didn't sound ungrateful :( Just desperate..

P.S. Thank you for all the great work. I really mean it...
