    I hope someone can help out

    So I'm running the US because I downgraded from 8.6 (honeycomb 3.2) in order to root my eee pad with the CWM Blob v5. Why did I do this?

    Well, I had used the Prime 1.6 version and CWM before to root my pad and it was working great until I noticed that my camera app would load up with a black, empty screen when using the front facing camera. The rear camera works great, the front facing just didn't do anything.

    So I dug around the forums and saw that some people were saying "Well, the camera breaks when you root the pad a certain way" so I dug further and saw some hope with the ADB style root using Blob V5. So I downgraded to, rooted with ADB, used Blob V5, no problems.

    However, now my front facing camera does one of two things: Total green screen and that's it. Or it will display what the rear camera shows but upside down and in sections, all choppy and jittery.

    Does anyone have any solutions? Any help? Anything at all???

    I called Asus and they, of course, want me to RMA it but I have a feeling it's software, not hardware, and I'd rather not mail the darn thing in.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    I don't know the answer to your question, but i can tell you that rooting voids your warranty, so you don't want to send it back to Asus for service while rooted.

    I kept getting the camera green screen on my Samsung phone after I rooted it-

    You could go back to stock firmware and see if that fixes it. It probably does- that's the problem with rooting, whoever makes the builds can't take the time to test for every little incompatibility...

    I just got the green screen today and my TF is not rooted. So what's up with that, do you know?

    Not sure, what's the last change you made on the tablet?Might try undoing it, restarting the TF, and see if it's still doing it.
