    So I just got the Dev edition today and it is awesome. However I am having an issue with the camera twist. After about an hour or so the twist gesture no longer works. After a reboot, it works no problem. Then repeat. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, did you find a fix to this issue? Thanks

    Sounds like you might've gotten a dud. I would exchange it.

    It takes getting use to the twist gesture .You might want to practise a few times it can be kinda picky.Be kinda snappy when you twist the phone using the gesture,to gentle of a twist it doesnt seem to work as well.

    Gentle works fine for me, but I did notice that I need to make sure to twist all the way back to the original position on the second twist. My general tendency was to not fully twist all the way back, and once I realized this it works every time.

    After someone else explained it like turning a doorknob I get it right about 95+ % of the time.

    Thanks guys, I know I've been doing it right. It just seemed like the camera app was stopping after a while, causing the gesture to not register. So i found that if I ended the app, it would start working again.

    Mine has been less finicky after creating this thread. I just messed around with the camera app for a bit. Turned off the gesture for an hour then exited the app completely. turned it back on and haven't had too many hiccups. I didn't pay attention on if the issue was happening when the battery saving toggle was on, that could be something to look at...

    Didn't know where else to post this:

    Found something strange today. Kinda funny. Dropped my phone (otterbox defender). Guess the way it twist and turned when it fell was similar and turned the camera on.
