I have a Franken Pre 2 on Sprint. My camera app fails to open. It tries but just spins the circle. It started after I was using the torch flashlight app and the camera at the same time.

Any ideas on how to get this working? I uninstalled the flashlight app, but that did not help.

If I go the DR route, will I loose my Sprint nav app? I had someone person Franken Pre this for me and I want to make sure I do not screw this up and have to redo it.

Thanks for your help.

We can't distribute a camera ipk, because it is copyrighted. You may have a hardware issue, but I would try to doctor the phone first.

If I remember right you'll need to meta- doctor since its a Franken....and this will likely result in sprint nav being removed and you will have to manually install the ipk.

That's what scares me. I do not want to loose my Franken Pre 2 ability. I use Sprint Nav all the time.

I would hate to have to switch to an iphone.. lol

If someone could PM me about the camera.ipk it would be much appreciated!!

This isn't the answer you want, but you can extract the data that you need from the doctor.

Running metadoctor to frankenpre isn't that difficult.

Thanks for the info. I really have no idea on how to extract the camera "stuff" out of the DR. Not sure what's involved, but would appreciate any assistance. I am an original Pre user and a huge WebOs fan.

So if there is anyone out there who can help me, I would be very thankful.

my guess is that reinstalling the camera won't fix your problem and in the end you'll need to metadoctor, so I would start there. Follow the directions at webos internals and it will be a breeze.
