HP TouchPad CM9 with Working Camera (Sort of)
It seems that someone has finally been able to get the HP TouchPad camera working and it’s about time! Although it has its bugs and glitches, a camera is a camera and I’m sure we can all be happy about that. It’s the first step towards a fully functional TouchPad and I’m sure the nightly builds will incorporate it soon enough.
The video above is of user ReverendKJR testing it and showing us what sort of issues you’ll come across.
What is working:
– taking pictures
– video recording
– the preview is rotated but after taking picture switches to proper orientation
– sometimes the device boots with blue screen – press and hold vol up and home button to reset
first release, taking pictures work, skype does not work, reboot required after closing the camera app to be able to take pictures again, blue screen
skype works, no reboot required after closing camera app, blue screen, regression stock camera app may not take pictures
fixed stock camera app in preview2
stock camera app controls fixed, broken skype
