Well, after moving from roms on the Captivate with all their camera mods I began to miss having an actual shutter button on the Charge. I thought this would be a good point for me to dive into android dev/hacking and so I whipped up a modded camera.apk with the power shutter mod. I would like to thank GizmoDroid on the Samsung Fascinate forum for writing an awesome tutorial on how he did this mod.

v0.2
Removed low battery check (by nitroglycerine33) Install via CWM.

v0.1
Initial Test Release. Shutter/AF function for Power button.


Future updates
Other buttons for shutter (search, menu)

Old Installation instructions (using root explorer)
1. Copy my Camera.apk to your sdcard
2. Using Root explorer (or any file browser) navigate to /system/app and copy your current Camera.apk to somewhere safe as a backup, or rename it to camera.apk.bak (root explorer only)
3. Using root explorer (or adb) copy my Camera.apk to /system/app and overwrite the existing file

If anything goes wrong, simply copy your backed up Camera.apk back to /system/app, or remove the new Camera.apk and restore your Camera.apk.bak

Works for me. Thanks! I changed the owner to root, and set permissions a la swapping out swype themes before testing tho, so it was rw-r--r-- again. unnecessary? Altered beast as well

Is it possible to eliminate the power button / move it to another button?

One of the biggest (pretty much only) complaint is the power button on the side of the Charge.

I am use to having the power button on top of the phone.

I am always hitting the power button by mistake. What a pain.

It would be nice to move it to the search button.


Thx for your input

Worked great on plain old rooted ee4, in fact it fixed the problem I had where the pic would not show up for review after installing rooted ee4. Thanks!

Cannot download
When I try and download from android browser I get:
Cannot download. The conten is not supported on the phone.
I know there are an infinite number of other ways to get this file but does anyone know why the browser refuses to download it?

Agreed, I'd love for it to work on the search button.
