    Tour .191 camera on stock .40 OS?

    Hey all, quick question. Is there a way to take the camera COD files from .191 and use them with the base .40 OS? I'm not ready to make the full jump to .191 yet, because alot of the apps I use daily wont work with it. But after spending a day with somebody who had a Tour running .191, I noticed that the camera was amazingly fast.


    No matter where you go, there you are

    you and stiefler taking pics of each other lol... the only way to know if it works is just to copy out the cods and use crackutil or paste them over the .40 os and then run apploader again

    thats not even right!!! mule i do have to warn you that if its anything like the storm os, this will not work with prior os's ie 5.0.0.191 is not compatible with .140. doesnt seem fair that the camera works for the tour and not the storm lol

    Guys, sorry but I must correct this. The speed of the camera is controlled by the SFI file not the COD's. Therefore, changing the COD files will not increase the speed of the camera.

    Remember the camera does not work on the 191. people tried all sorts of different combos with COD files and got nowhere. This is because the SFI controls this. Just want to clear this up so no one is mistaken.

    It does work, but switching the COD files won't make it snappy like it is with 191.

    Actually, it's not so much that it's "not fair" as is makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. The Storm and Tour SHOULD be using the same code for the camera app and the camera driver inside of the SFI. The only thing I can think of is that RIM forgot to "sign" the actual camera driver in the .SFI file and thus the hardware is disabled. When the camera app tries to access the camera device, something akin to a "Stop Error" or a "Kernel Panic" occurs and the device reboots.

    This may or may not be what's happening, but if it is; at least it makes sense.

    Very good point Dave and I believe as you stated before, this being a development internal to RIM, they may have been testing something else, and disabled the camera on purpose (for all we know). These are why these are leaks and not official releases.
