First off: Very cool idea! Always wanted this for my phone.

However...I'm having some issues. I installed the cab to my HTC HD2 T8585 (tried both Storage Card and Internal), but whenever I launch it, I get:
"Cannot Init camera"

Now, I am running a custom rom, so that may have something to do with it.

Let me know if you have any ideas on fixing it And again, nice idea.
