Camera FIX cab from LEO

As probably most of you know, the LEO or HTC HD2 had an issue with the images taken by the camera. HTC has released a fix today. This fix means an enhancement in the quality of the photos. Some guy, have made a cab, the orginal exe file provided by HTC was not able to be installed on our HTC HD, but the cab made by this guy yes...

So I have installed the cab in my device -after a back up of course-, then I have made a soft reset and once the device has rebooted I have started to use my camera. For me, but maybe is just a placebo effect, the photos taken after the installation seems to be much better, a great quality improvement has been noted by me, and also the video seems to have a faster response.

But as this fix was intended to the LEO maybe is just a placebo effect and not a real effect. I have to comment that I am using one of the new roms based on LEO. So I do not know how this fix will work on an stock rom. Just make a back up. Just in case.

My current manila version is 2.5.19.202525.0

Has anyone tested it on WM6.1 Roms? or will it work on Roms based on Leo's Rom only??

I have official rom from htc and camera fix works great. Images are better and it has additional options.

But first time I started camera picture was out of screen but it fixed it self by it self after couple of seconds.

you might be right

Just tried this on my 6.5 cooked leo ROM, there is a definate difference, the camera does seem a little quicker and the image is more crisp with more Gamma and contrast.

images

Here are the images, it occurred to me though as a different focus area was chosen in each image the white balance could have caused this changed, perhpas someone else could have a go.

Working on my T8282 with Maryone WM6.5 (details in sig)

-Noticed slightly faster performance... maybe...

-All extra camera options were already there for me thanks to HDTweak

-Am about 95% sure the quality of photos has increased

But maybe I just want to believe...

I think this has improved my camera slightly....i think!

However I have no audio while video recording? Any one else have this??

Don't know if you care

Works beautifully on imagio. Seriously, words can't describe the increased level of functionality of the camera on this device. I wouldn't bring my phone out to take pictures before because of the 10 seconds it takes for the autofocus to work, but this thread has shown me light. Under two seconds autofocus and shutter now. Fantastico.

Does anyone know what registry values this cab installs or writes? I would like to try it on an HD Clone. Ideally, it would be nice to know what changes are made to the registry.

Open the cab with winrar or something similar then just read the xml with a text reader, it's all there for you.

Thanks. I extracted that file and renamed it as a DOC file. I can see only one Registry change:

type="Registry"><characteristic type="HKCU\Software\HTC\Customize"><parm name="Ver" value="1.0" datatype="string" /></characteristic></characteristic></wap-provisioningdoc>

Everything else seems to be installs of DLL files and some data run statements. I kind of hoped to see or know more about any other Reg changes as some of the keys are different on Clones.

using it on duttys leo 6.5 rom and its definately speeded up the camera shot, there is still motion blur but I guess its improved and now I can take photos quicker before my son moves.

Well, I am back after installing this camera fix on my Blackstone, and I can say that there is a slight improvement in camera's performance... Especially on daylight.
Thanks again

Best regards
