I have a camera app from 4.2 that is supposed to be flashable, but have no custom recovery. Is there any way for me to install the app without the custom recovery?!

Open the zip, and get the camera app extracted. Go in root Explorer, and find /system/app/ then delete your camera.apk, and replace it with the one you just extracted (must be named correctly) then hit edit permissions, and change them to match this :
[x] [x] [x]
[x] [x] [x]
[x] [ ] [x]
(rwxrwxr-x)

Then reboot.

Yes it should. I've looked at the init.rc and determined that it should provide unrestricted access to the boot loader and recovery partition.

Well, that'd be awesome. Downloaded the boot.IMG. Maybe I'll be brave and guinea pig it this weekend. No promises though. We really need to get you a cheap Viper, Nigel. Lol

I must've uploaded my SSH private key somewhere by accident because someone hacked my GitHub. Now I have to revoke all my keys. -__-

And just to be on the safe side, if this doesn't work, how do I go about getting the original camera app back? Thank you so much for this!
