    When launching my camera app the icon shows up with the camera then the screen goes black and then comes back on and does this every few seconds. It looks as if it is stuck in a loop Back of phone gets real hot. Only mod was the volume control mod to click photos. Removed that and restarted and same issue. Hate to do a web dr. if i do not need to. Done the restart/battery/slider and nothing fixes it. just started today.

    That is the exact same symptom as improper use of the wifi tethering app.

    My camera would take forever to open, if at all. I had to slide the phone closed and back open to get the camera to work. So eventually I took it to a Sprint store and they gave me a new Pre.

    What did you install since the last time you used the camera app?

    Did you happen to install either of the CPU patches? If so I'd uninstall and try that first, don't forget to restart afterward.

    i updated preware and mytether and thats was it, i am going to remove all patches which are not many and restart and see if that fixes it.


    Figured it out by going out to the mytether website.

    The MyTether pubs are quite clear.
    1. It uses a patch to make it work which disables the camera.
    2. It requires a restart after you patch or unpatch.
    3. If you want to use the camera, you must must remove patch.

    There is a virtual switch in the options of MyTether to turn the patch on/off

    This did the same exact thing for me, but when I moved the patch option to off and accepted it to un patch, the phone rebooted and the camera app still does not work.

    Make sure the it's unpatched, sometimes this happens to me, and it turns out that i have to unpatch it again.
