Very glad to hear it. Now Google just has to kill off the absolute horrid camera app it has and build a new one from scratch. Read the Anandtech review released today of the Nexus 5 and you realize how terrible the camera app is.

Camera I think is good. App can agree with you. Curious to see what this new app will bring.

So I wonder if I'm rooted with a custom ROM, if I'll have to go back to stock to get the fixes or if custom Roms will be able to update their source. I come from the Sprint Galaxy S4 so I'm used to these updates being very tedious if you're rooted and on a custom rom.

Default New Version of Android and Camera Fix coming soon! WooHOO

Once the OTA is spotted a zip ( odexed/deodexed) will pop up in the dev threads shortly after. You should be good.

Any idea if one would be able to sideload the nexus camera app without root to the moto x? Similar to how you can sideload the GEL.

I'm happy about the camera improvements but what about the email exchange bug? I sure hope that is fixed in this build. I don't want to use a third party app anymore.

Umm before spamming your blog at least mention that these are from The Verge and post that link instead?
