I saw this problem somewhere. If I remember well, clearing cache/data fixes it. Not 100% sure, but it would not hurt. Let me know if it works.

Default Ffc

My front facing camera doesn't work at all . I don't get the "switch camera" option in the camera app. It worked this morning before I installed MANUALLY the supposed "OTA Gingerbread leak". I can't even restore to the original ROM because the bootloader is locked.

Any suggestions?

It works......there is a little camera ICON in the upper left corner that switches. I like it better than the old way!

Is the FFC working in Google Talk for anyone? I cannot be the only one having this problem. What is the point of having video chatting on your phone if you can't use your FFC? I'm praying it's something they can fix with an update to GTalk.

I'm also having this issue and everyone else I know who has a Thunderbolt running new OTA to GB.

My Google talk icon is a speaker instead of a video-camera
When I attempt to make a call w/ Google Talk, it attempts to connect the call with the rear camera and even that doesn't work.

Skype works but Google talk does not... I want Google Talk video!!!!!! Not Skype

Help Please!

I'm having the same issue on my EVO 4G. My FFC used to work with GTalk 1.3. I don't know what I did (I didn't touch GTalk) but it stopped working. It only works with the main camera and I lost the button that used to let me switch between the 2 cameras.
