Supposedly the new firmware released last week added some new EYE features to the Camera like the ability to use both cameras at once to take a photo of yourself overlayed against whatever the main camera can see. I've had a look through the Camera app but can't see any of the new options in there. Where are they hidden?
That's because it is firmware. It isn't the camera apk.
The camera app isn't a part of firmware. Two totally separate things.
The 4.4.4 ROM update contains the camera apk. The firmware does not.
If you need further assistance understanding the difference, please use google.
Part of the problem with the terminology, is that on any other platform, that which is called a "ROM" on Android would be considered either "Firmware" (e.g. iPhone IPSW "Firmware") or a combination of that and just "Software".
I'm quite aware of the difference of the various partitions etc. When HTC themselves refer to a complete OTA (which includes bootloaders, radio's etc and all the other "firmware" components, as well as updated apps for the System partition), merely as a "Software update", the naming conventions get very blurry.
For the sake of argument in this case, yes, the new Camera.APK is provided in the updated "ROM". As it turns out, apparently the functionality is in the update, but another separate update to the new Camera and/or Gallery apk's is required from HTC to make all the new features available, some of them are in there now.
I fail to see how my comment could be considered rude, but if I've somehow offended you, then I apologise.
