Default [MOD] Nexus 7 720p Video Recording

So I just got 720p video recording working on my Nexus 7 and felt you guys should know about this too. It's a simple fix as it's not a limitation of hardware or a kernel function or anything, rather it's just Google didn't add the media profile for 720p to tell it how to use 720p.

What firmware does this need?

It doesn't matter. If you're on the original N7 firmware or the latest builds from Google, it still works just fine. I'm now on JOP40C and it works just fine. One update.zip fits all. I do suggest keeping your original file as a backup though as it plays up with OTA updates if you have this mod installed.

You don't need to install this if you are running a CM based firmware (CM10, etc) as I have pushed the patch to the CM repositories and it will be preloaded on your Nexus 7. And no, it's not them stealing credit, I pushed the patch to them.

I know I'm not that far in to deving to make a flashable zip that can be universal for most of these roms. All I have done was port a rom to the EVO 4G. So... I guess if you upload the apk and associated edited files someone can do something or I will give it a shot.

I use the camera app from Modaco and sound works great when shooting videos. Its strange why yours isn't working. Anyway it would be great if someone made a flashable zip or an apk out of this. Great work there buddy!

I found 5 different media_profiles im cm10 source folder:
1. /development/tools/emulator/system/camera
2. /out/target/product/grouper/obj/PACKAGING/target_files_intermediates/cm_grouper-target_files_eng.<your user name>/SYSTEM/etc
3. /out/target/product/grouper/system/etc
4./out/target/product/grouper/
5. /device/panda
is it likely the file that you mentioned in number 3, right?
(sorry for my english)

Thanks in advance.
