So here's what has happened so far, flashed over the latest cm9 unofficial. Which what I run. First boot blue screen, second boot camera displays my face but won't take picture, close camera, open camera...cannot connect to camera.

I installed camera ICS, rebooted, waited for the SD card to stop checking for errors(just like with any OS starting you need to give it a breather) and so far the camera takes pictures perfect.

An issue I dealt with:

I had the installed and set to 7x8, and after installing the camera fix, I noticed that my bottom row of icons disappeared. I checked out the launcher homescreen settings, and realized that it was set to 7x7 and I was unable to edit these values.

I simply reinstalled the trebuchet_fix again to get my column and row functionality back. I'm not sure why the camera fix edited these values, possibly due to the sizing of the camera image in the app, but I don't see the correlation.
