My first attempt at installing customs ROMS went ok but with a few exceptions. The latest BAMF left me with a malfunctioning camera and Wireless Tether would not give out an IP. Synergy has a good tether but again, no camera. What could I have messed up? I tried both at least twice...

Not reading the thread on RootzWiki or XDA Forum. You need to research (read) all you can about any ROM, including what bugs before you install a ROM. Camera issues, Browser flash not working, GPS not working, Weather bug showing you on the other side of the world, etc, etc, etc... are just some of the bugs I've seen on some ROMs... but most all are known issues or issues you can read about before flashing the ROM.

OK that worked. Thanks. As far as reading about bugs, I researched Synergy and everyone on WIKI said the camera worked. I guess they meant after doing the date change trick...

All you have to do is go to settings-date&time-unchecked automatic update then go back one month and back out then open the camera app and then make sure it opens then go back and check it and if your phone powers off you have to do it again hope this helps

I threw on BAMF 2.4.1 and the camera is indeed fixed. I still can't get a MHS or WIFI Tether program to work on it though...

didn't have any problem (yet) with synergy (tweaked version) except for the wifi not giving correct IP, therefore no web access. Can anyone shed some lite into this problem. thanks.

Tethering is going to be an issue since verizon added the "tetherblock.apk" thing or whatever it is called to GB.
