Whenever a device gets a new leak, some brave soul has to flash it and figure out what works and what doesn’t. In many cases, there isn’t much wrong but often, the software is incomplete and there’s the occasional force close or signal issue. However, on some leaks—especially ones that aren’t really intended for your device—there are more numerous issues.
Those carrying the HTC EVO 3D may have noticed that the previously leaked ICS firmware was actually intended for the Virgin Mobile version of the device and that the camera doesn’t exactly work. While camera functionality is commonly lacking in ICS leaks, you don’t have to suffer from for long. XDA Recognized Developer JoelZ9614 has provided a fix that will get the shutterbugs out there back in action.
The fix, which comes packaged in a recovery-flashable update.zip, fixes some (but not all) of the camera problems. Specifically, users can expect their 2D camera and 2D camcorder to work again, but 3D functionality is still down for the time being. Additionally, you get some classic ICS transition animations. However, half a fix is better than having it broken, so users can expect this fix to be incorporated into various ROMs in the near future.
