Hi

Is it possible to replace Play's camera module for a NEO's 8Mp one or from another xperia 2011 phone, like Ray or Arc?

I've seen some disassembly videos and the connector seems to be the same in all of them.

Regards

I don't know but I'd imagine that it would require kernel modifications and would be an overly complex solution...

Well i know if we have a Neo V and get the 8mp camera module of Neo and flash the Neo camera files we get a full Neo.

Since the conectors are the same the module should work i think and with that the camera files should work on Play.

I'm sure megapixel is hardware related. I doubt flashing a different camera would work
Kinda like asking "If I flash my NES could I make it into an Xbox360?"

I think he's talking about swapping out the physical module

that's why I said and ezadsyafiq99 said that it would certainly require software modifications (somehow I can't think of a wording that comes off less angry sounding; I'm just trying to explain

Well, like University answered, i was talking about switching the hardware camnera module from another phone (Neo,Arc) since in the Neo V you can use the 8mp module of Neo.

Well i will assume that isnīt just switch the module, also some libs and etc.., but i would like to know is if any one knows if there is a module that is plug and play (aside from the software mod).

If you switch the camera of the play for the neo, doesn't that mean you'll need to.switch the camera.apk because the one the play has the mp option up to 5mp

Well, if a camera module of Neo is hardware compatible, i will assume that i will need to change the camera.apk and libs and some more software related.
