    Hello! How is this for a first post. ;)

    Pressing the camera button or tapping the camera app icon causes the phone to restart.

    When this problem started my pfone was still an unrooted RC19.

    While trying to fix this I have done the following:

    Several Hard Resets - camera not working
    Data Wipe - not working
    update to RC29 - not working
    Root, HardSPL and update to CyanoGen 4.0.4 (v1.5) - not working, camcorder also restarts phone
    JF v1.5 - Not working
    Data Wipe - WORKING CAMERA!!!:D
    the next morning I try to use barcode scanner app and the phone restarts!:mad: - Cam is not working again:(
    This point on I wipe before every ROM update
    Reflash original SPL and go back to RC29 - not working
    Root, HardSPL, and update to JF v1.5 - not Working
    Update to JF 1.5.1 - not working
    Reflash original SPL and go back to RC29 - not working
    Offical TMo 1.5 ROM - not working
    Offical Tmo 1.6 update ROm -not working BUT now instead of restarting the phone the phone throws up a Force Close error "The application Camera (process com.android.camera) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again"

    I'm staying at 1.6 for the time being as the error message is more graceful than having the phone reboot if I accidentally press the cam button.

    Anyone have any ideas what I can do? I am not eligible for warranty service as I am not in the USA.
