    I'm not sure what I did, but when I take a picture all seems fine and starts "saving" but it just becomes a blank image. I seem to remember reading a post about this but I can not find it, any ideas?

    Apex 1.4
    Kernel 2.6.32

    This was happening before I switched to Apex from Liberty

    I had this problem when I had liberty 1.0. The problem followed me from Gummy Jar 2.5 .. If you installed Gummy Jar 2.5 and Liberty on top of it... This could be the problem. I read it was one of the quirks.. I would just restore back to stock + root and give a fresh install for apex 1.4

    any other ideas?

    I'm one of the fools that rooted before I knew anything way back when and never created a stock backup, there has to be a rather easy way to fix this.

    Did you try clearing the data and cache for the camera and gallery apps?

    Open the DCIM folder on your sdcard and delete the "thumbnails" folder, see if that helps at all.

    After I delete the folder it just keeps coming back, seems to be grabbing my launcherpro icons and creating a new thumbnails folder.

    That's fine, it is supposed to come back, rather than deleting everything in the folder it's easier to just delete the folder completely. I've had a few weird camera glitches in the past and deleting the thumbnails folder(or just deleting everything in it) took care of the problem a couple times.
