[Development]Edit Htc's Camera app
I've been searching this section for an answer about editing the stock camera-app. Without any success at all (except by briefly sentences about this).
The goal with this is to make the flash to light up right before the application tries to focus. This will make it a alot easier to take photos in more dark places. (And for those with a past of nokia devices) you already experienced this function.
I've attached a .rar-file containing the following:
1. The original .apk file
2. The decomlied .jar file
3. A folder containing everything from inside the .apk (for those of you that haven't a clue at all how to extract files from a .apk file)

Well if you are following this thread, you probably already know what's going on.
But for new visitors: I decided to change my approach to several problems I stumble upon. So I will more likely create a complete new camera app specific for the DHD. And yes, users to this forum will be the first to try it out. But I've haven't decided yet how I will distribute the app, if it will be through google marketplace, or just in here (or what ever it will be).
But if this project take up to much time, I would appreciate some kind of donations
But of course after you folks seen some results
So keep tuned for more news!

I've succeeded to find the class containing all definitions (for an exapmle: how many seconds it will take for the timer to take a photo).
I will try to edit some values and the complie it back to .dex (in other words make it back to .apk).
I hope to update before the end of the day.

I've manage to decomplie classes.dex in HTCCamera.apk to a .jar-file. So if you got a java complier it shouldn't be any problem to open up the file.
The main problem right now is to find which class that handles the actual moment when it tries to focus. So if any one with some sort of knowledge about programming have some time over, feel free to help me find this specific class.
