    So I rooted for the first time today, and tried to install Hydra Kernel's #1 & #3 kernels. The system seems completely stable with each kernel, except when I open the Camera app, the camera view is completely blank. Almost as if something was blocking the lens. Then when I try and take a photo, it locks up. I tried closing all apps, and restarting the camera, but this didn't work. :thinking:

    Once I run a Nandroid restore prior to installing the kernels, the camera works fine. Anyone have any ideas why this would happen?

    Yep, same problem for me. I'm assuming something in the kernel changed with the update, so just wait for Hydra to make a new set of kernels and I'm sure all will be ok.

    I'm having the same issue. A lot of my apps are force closing too.

    I was also having issues after doing a Titanium Backup restore which apparently restored more than it was supposed to. Reinstalled all the apps manually and, with the stock kernel, all is well with my leaked OTA.

    I hope a Hydra Kernel is released that supports the OTA. I really want to have 720p and the ability to overclock / undervolt :)

    It won't happen until HTC coughs up the kernel source and that definitely won't happen until its official.

    Damn.

    Adryn, is there a way to unroot and downgrade the OTA without losing all of your phone data and apps?
