Default [Q] No flash while hotspot is on?

Why can't I use my camera flash while my mobile hotspot is active? What is the training behind this and can I re enable it in any way?

Interesting find. It also blocks flash while tethering on non htc camera apps. Obviously a battery saving move but they should give us the option...

Actually it is likely the phone cant produce the burst of power required for flash while providing tethering. Im sure there are other phones that can and maybe this one can be set up to do it with a non stock kernel (which we wont get until kernel source comes out or someone builds).
