Just by a show of users Id like to know whether or not those who have installed Instagram's newest update on the HTC VIVID still have issues with front cam pics, when taken they come out like how a broken NES cartridge used to look on your TV. Im looking to see if anyone has experienced the same exact probs so I can narrow down whether its my phone or the app.

Not sure exactly what you mean, but my FFC has always been VERY fuzzy.

The FFC is a lower quality cmos camera, so the fuzziness will always be there. however it is known with devices using ICS the FFC fails to preview pics using the default instagram camera. Ive been emailing tech support and I was told the issue will be resolved soon.

If you disable the "advanced instagram camera" and use the phones default camera, all is well.

At present all photos taken with the FFC using the Instagram camera fail to show a preview, if not, garbles NES like designs...too bad there isnt a cartidge slot to blow compressed air into lol

Update, as per the most recent instagram release on google play, all problems are fixed. No need to install optional updated gl drivers, although the app works without them now
