    Yes, had the same problem today as well. Still running Gingeritis 3D VI. Camera has worked fine for some time, but today when I launch the camera app, the screen goes black, then about 5 seconds later, goes back to app menu. Same with camcorder. Barcode scanner reports a problem with camera. Mirror app doesn't access the FFC. Rebooted, battery pulls, but no change. Was coming here to ask the question, but saw someone is having same issue. Hopefully someone knows a solution.

    I'm running the 2.11RUU leak, and came here to look at going back to rooting to see if it fixed the problem, but i now see that rooted roms are having issues. Any chance the Gingeritis 3D VI is running off the 2.11 leak? just wondering if it may be a problem with that base

    I'm running radio 2.0.01.76.0703_2r. As I mentioned, this ROM has worked fine for me for over a month. Only issues I've had was the lack of voicemail notification (fixed using Google Voice), and the occasional bug where you can't answer a call. Since I haven't seen that one fixed, I haven't bothered with the updates to this point. Seems odd that the camera just fails on a ROM that has worked fine with the camera for some time now

    I can't download from mikmik anywhere else I can get this from?

    Nevermind found this over at xda

    FIX:Camera & Google Talk

    This fixed both my Camera and Google Talk that stopped working in Sense ROMS om 08-31-11.

    FIX:
    1. Go to Settings and select Date & Time.
    2. Un check Automatic
    3. Change the time to 08-01-11
    4. Go and open your camera (it should work now)
    5. Now you can go back and check Automatic in the Time & Date Setting

    FIX:Camera & Google Talk

    Give Credit to Mzimand

    Worked like a charm!

    This should be obvious, but it should be "Change the date to 8-01-11."

    oddly enough,
    my brother had this happen to his phone the other day.
    so i flashed Gingeritis 3DB8, still didn't work.
    looked @ the camera apk, was showing "0.0KB" along with a ton of other files showing 0.0kb.
    assumed it was a bad wipe, so re-wiped multiple times, reflashed. still no files.
    gonna try this .zip file fix & hope it works.

    It was reported that this was caused because of a out of date authenticated file and this is why overriding the libOlaEngine.so library file with the updated file worked.. the file must expired on 09-01-2011 and this caused the camera from function or any apps that is using the file..
