    I am running QuantumMod 2.7, and was wondering if anyone knew how to disable the location tagging feature of the camera?
    Even with GPS turned off, it tags location based on cell tower.

    Thanks!

    Ah, but won't that affect apps that need location, like WeatherBug?

    Not in the leaked 2.2 roms, there is no option at all in the camera settings.

    That is interesting. I have the 2.2.1 leak installed, and I don't have the option on my camera either. I seem to recall having the setting off when I was on stock 2.1. I don't see any tags on my pics, but how would I check?

    You may be able to go back to 2.1, turn it off, then re-install your current ROM.
