Will on removal of camera module stop at boot?
Or will the phone still function normally (except obviously the Camera Function).
This is my workplace requirement to have a phone either with no camera or Camera physically removed.
I do work in embedded domain, so I don't think removal of camera will be a issue.
good luck convincing them you removed the camera module?
anyways, arent the modules insmodded by init.rc at boot?
taken from the arch linux wiki, not sure if this applies to embedded android "Loading. Extra kernel modules to be loaded during boot are configured as a static list in files under /etc/modules-load.d/ ."
have you simply tried removing the module and then restoring a recovery backup if it doesnt work?
