Default Video taken is blank

After flashing the ROM (L26 WM 6.1 Professional WWE V6a with
R 1.58.26.20) everything works fine, but videos taken with the camera show only as a green screen. The sound is there, just the picture is missing. When I transfer the .MP4 file to the PC and play it - the result is the same. The PC has the K-Lite codeck pack, so it is not a codec issue.

I searched this forum and couldn't find anything about this problem. Any ideas?

You gotta take the lens cap off!

Ha ha! couldn't resist.
I've had a similar problem with taking pictures a few times and never figured out what it was. It was in a high light situation, with the resolution set to highest and superfine and the pictures taken were just solid black, while pictures taken immediately in a different lighting situation were fine. I dropped the resolution down a notch and it worked fine.
Weird.

Actually it's been a fairly recent discovery I think. Probably related to the release of the new CPUs (MSM7201) that are suppose to circumvent some patent infringement or something. Anyway, you can follow the progress of this issue here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=387057

and if you want, you can test out the Hyperdragon ROM, but then updating it with the original file posted in that thread. (I'm too lazy to do this and I already have my rom set up the way I want it haha).

Hyperdragon ROM here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=386519

Then load the original CIF dll (CIF_314.zip) from page 5 of the thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=387057

And post your results there to let us know if this fixed the camera :) Thanks

Yes, you were right. It was the new CPU on my Tilt. The funny thing is I tried several ROMS and all of them were recognizing it as 7200. I finally installed the NoThrills ROM and it recognized it as QUALCOMM(R) 7201 and the camera started taking videos. This ROM also runs everytning faster... at least until I started installing things.
