    My camera flash and flashlight not working. Last thing I did to the system was install the anthrax kernel. Not sure if that's the cause. If so then no flash for me. Any ideas? Says the batterry is low or something is using the processes like hotspot.

    The sense 3.0 roms have a bug that wont let the led work when 4g is on. Turn off 4 g and it will work

    I'm on mik3d and not running 4g. It has always worked before. Guessing its the kernel but hope not. As its the last change I've done.

    Tried that. Still nothing. Maybe ill just reflash my ROM and kernel today. If that doesnt work, o well no big lose as i like the anthrax kernel and i know the flashlight and camera flash worked on other kernels. I assume its the kernel at least.

    Before I wiped my phone and starting from scratch, I decided to flash a different kernel to see if the flashlight and camera flash wasn't working do to the anthrax kernel (test version) or not. After flashing chop suey back on, everything works fine now. I really liked how the phone ran with the anthrax kernel and mik3d rom. It was snappy and ran smooth. Battery life was ok but it was a sacrifice I was willing to deal with. I didn't flash anthrax after a fresh rom install, so not sure if that was part of the issue or not.

    If you've still got your source try to download it again. Could have been a bad download.

    Also if you could check and see if it works with the 4G on I never could get the flash or flashlight to work with 4G on any 3.0 roms It would say something about batt to low.

    I never got my phone to connect to 4g. Before and after root. It turned on but never found towers since there aren't many here in phoenix. With the anthrax kernel, 4g wouldn't even turn on.
