    Need help disabling primary camera.

    On my wife's atrix, the primary camera on the back is fried. It literally got extremely hot and left a dead white spot on the screen behind the camera. Now that camera doesn't work. Since there's no more warranty on it, I'll live with the phone for a while. The problem is that all of the camera apps, even 3rd party ones, freeze when they are unable to connect to that camera. I've tried switching the camera to the front one, but since the settings don't want to stick, it just freezes the next time I open the camera. I can only get it to switch to the front camera maybe 1 out of 50 tries, so I need to fix this.

    I've tried a few different OS's. A few variations of CM7 and redpill v4. I've decided to stick with redpill v4 on her phone. Can anyone help me completely disable this camera in the source and make it use the front camera as default. Then I can compile it and flash? I'm really just looking for ideas before I attempt to dig through the source and figure it out.

    Let me see what happens... Maybe I can delete the XML entry that defines the rear camera, making it default to the front. If not the change will have to be compiled in.

    You said you're on V4? Or RedPill-CM7?

    EDIT: I've looked through the Blur version BlurCamera.apk and changing any part of it means FC's. I've found what needs to be changed... I just don't have the source.

    Thanks for the response Dorian! I'll gladly switch to the cm7 hybrid on her phone if I can fix this issue. So if I deleted the XML that defines the camera on the cm7 version, it might fix this? Its worth a try.

    Before you start to flash away from her comfort zone...lol. Let me try this on CM7 and see what happens. I can just recompile the CM7 Camera.apk with changes made, that way it's clean.

    Just let me make sure first.

    Any chance you got to this Dorian? No rush, just curious.

    The globaldirectparts one doesn't appear to work. But the other one does. I'll see if I can make sure its a legit company. Do you know anyone who has ordered from them?

    Unfortunately I don't. So far I've not had to order any replacement parts for mobile phones. I know the global site requires membership to order from them, but I'm not sure why.

    Well thanks for that link. The ecrater link seems to be legit. Parts are also available directly from sinophoneparts.com. Both sites accept paypal. For $17, it's worth the risk. I'm betting that it is not the same camera and is just a cheap low megapixel camera, but I'll report back when it arrives from china.
