    Hi Alex,

    My guess is that you'd need to root the device in order to replace the original camera app. Otherwise the original app is still in the system area, and I expect that's why it reverts on a reboot.

    (I've replaced camera.apk on my - rooted - device, but often found it a bit of a fiddle. The most reliable way I found was to uninstall, clean up the dalvik cache, then install the new one, but you should always take a nand backup before messing with system apps).
