    I think people would have an easier time understanding what is going on here if it weren't for the misconception that the SFI file is the "radio" file.

    What the SFI file truly is, is the main kernel of the OS. It contains all of the hardware "drivers" to make the components of the phone work with the OS and the apps. Yes, the "radio" is one of the components controlled by the SFI, but so is everything else (bluetooth, audio, graphics, memory allocation, file I/O, etc. - including the camera)

    The problem with .191 lies somewhere in the "driver" for the camera. It would seem that the "driver" is somehow incompatible with the camera app from prior builds, and also incompatible with the camera app that it itself contains. Perhaps the "driver" in .191 has already been updated to support "HD" recording and the application itself isn't ready yet. What appears to be happening is the camera app launches, and tries to access the driver. At that point, something akin to a UNIX kernel panic results, causing a reboot.

    I honestly think what we're seeing is a case of the Applications not being caught up with the platform. Same thing that causes problems with other apps, just this time, it's affecting one of the core apps of the device. This isn't too surprising though, as I understand it .191 isn't a release that's actually destined for carrier testing, so it's most likely purpose is something RIM is testing internally. And for what they're testing, it probably made no difference that the camera doesn't work.

    I think there are other flaky things going on hardware-wise in this OS, as USB operation seems VERY sketchy (especially multi-megabyte file transfers to the media card) and also apploader reporting 131MB of free app memory during the install. I am getting the feeling that RIM is playing around with memory partitioning or something, and perhaps at some point we will suddenly have 256MB of App memory instead of the 128MB we have now.
