THE DEVICE HAS BEEN MODIFIED SO THAT IT CAN NOW SHOOT BOTH RED(NEW) AND GREEN(OLD) CAMERAS.

I've been unable to make green lense kernel modules work well with new kernel. GB kernel is dicks!

So i performed a fusion of 2.3 firmware onto 2.2 kernel via 2nd-init.

Pros:
  • Stable kernel
  • No ultra-bright buttons ;)

Cons:
  • Somewhat slower than official 2.3
  • Live Wallpapers don't work

Contents:
  • 2.2 (3.4.2-177) kernel
  • 4.5.134 ramdisk
  • EGL drivers from Froyo
  • Camera libraries from Froyo
  • Sensors library from CM7
  • libsurfaceflinger/libserver_init from Droid2 GB OTA
  • libcamera wrapper by me, based on CM7 wrapper by maniac103
  • BlurCamera ported from Froyo (GB one is not stable)

Installation:
  • Install official GingerBread via nandroid + fixed sbf
  • Install 2nd-init recovery 0.6.1 or later
  • Install zip from recovery

Download:

Disclaimer:
  • This is tested on latest (134) leak but may work on older or newer releases. I'm interested in results on those.
  • This is beta mod of beta firmware with frankenstein-esque methods
  • This may or may not work on red lenses
  • I'm not responsible for your damages
  • Please don't spam this thread with bugs, don't start flamewars and don't whine
  • Thanks to everyone in CyanogenDefy team!
  • Mention me if you're using my work.

I'm really happy this has finally been done. I've sold my Defy few days ago and I regret that I could give the official 2.3 ROM a try. Good work !

works like a charm in my green lens defy. by the way, its the first time im running official 2.3.4, 4.5.1-134. i found it a bit laggy in comparison with nordic froyo and miui. maybe i need some reboots. im runinng shadow´s rooted version by walter (nandroid + fixed sbf).

EDIT: in the OP theres an advice that says live wallpapers dont work, im at wpclock 1.5.3 working as well.

Help?

I have a stock gingerbread unrooted and I wanna try this. I've been searching, and it seems that the only way to get the phone rooted is having froyo first and flashing a nandroid. I am really lazy to go back to froyo. Is there any way to root GingerBlur?

    It should be possible to use WVGA recording on green lens:
    http://tihiy.net/files/rusdefy/blurcam.rar
    • Install/replace blurcamera.apk
    • Merge buildmot.prop with /system/build.prop with text editor
    • Wipe camera data
    • Enjoy WVGA recording
    It worked on CM7 and 2.2 so should work here...

    I dont understand its for kernel 2.2.2 but we want for Gingervread kernel :D

    But thanks

    How many times does it needs to repeated there is no such thing as gingerbread kernel. Kernel is one thing android version is another! Gingerbread can work with 29 32 35 kernels. Moto uses 32 to GB and froyo too.
