Fix for Flashlight, welcome again SpaceApps!

So, when media scanner was not working on our devices, spacecaker, thanks to 3rd party apps, modded a few of them to adapt to CM7 icons, layout and theme. This time, we got media scanner working and encoder and decoder working, SpaceApps wasn't downloaded anymore. One of the most importnat bugs CM7 (for cooperve) has, is the Flash light not working on stock CM7 camera app. This is a weird issue, because we defined a good path on framework, but still CM7 can not found the value of the torch, and always start app with flashmode requested is OFF.


WHat we found is an app, MIUI camera app, that flash works, what we don't really know is that MIUI camera app is based on AOSP camera app, which falsh is not working! So it's pretty weird. Kernel is okey, because torch app can work without any problems.

Preview is not showing on screenshoot, but works


This app is pretty nice, and works without any problems, only bug is flash while recording, but now pictures can be taken with flash working.

All right, to install this patch here are INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Go to Recovery (CWM)
  • Mount system
  • Install zip from SD card
  • Install FIX and rebot
Here is to downland the fix: CLICK HERE

This post will become old on the blog, so if anyone need it, you could found on the XDA thread of CM7 for Cooperve, 3rd post :)

Have a nice shooting ;)

    1. Biel encontré esta solicitud en uno de los últimos comentarios del foro https://www.change.org/petitions/broadcom-release-driver-source-gpu-kernel-etc-for-samsung-galaxy-ace-gt-s5830i yo tengo una cuenta en Change.org por que en ocasiones hay buenas causas y esta es una de ellas y YO FIRME, podrías ayudar a que este enlace sea visible para todos en el foro y ademas en los otros grupos de desarrolladores como AndroidarmV6, es un intento que no podemos dejar pasar ademas sabemos que antes fuimos escuchados por uno de los ingenieros de Broadcom Nick Lambourne and David http://madteam.co/forum/general-77/(dev's)(broadcom)-open-dialogue-with-broadcom/, solo que esa vez el dialogo abierto se lleno de spamers y noobsters preguntando por ETAs.
      Está vez si se puede Biel

  4. Nice temporary app. We still can decompile it and search, but it will be long and hard. Is it possible our driver have different instruction like MIUI? We know how to enable flashlight, why we can't add the same function in source? I don't know much about writing, but who know what is there? Function like camera, cameraf or cflash? All apps use one, camera uses second or third (in theory of course). Anyone who know will try to search.
