Dear All,
Greetings !!!!!
I have green lense defy in which i had accidently flashed defy plus rom. now my defy is on sbf of defy plus as it is non down (BL7)
For almost 1 month My camera was dead but after flashing quarks 2nd boot rom ( which includes custom kernels) my camera starts working.
Now if i flash other roms for eq. rapidroid / miui / wajkUI then kernels changes ( it shows kernel name like hudson ) & again my camera wont work.
Should I flash custom kernel of quarks on the above mentioned roms?? Will Camera work ???

Please guide me ...Thanks in Advnce...

Latest Qarx ROM's have kernel embedded so you do not need to flash nothing more but gapps. Do cash and dalvic wipe and flash newest 18/10 ROM then gapps.
The ROM is unified and suits any kind of Defy

Dear Friend Thanks for reply.. But If I flash other roms like rapidroid or any other then kernels changed and my camera becomes dead again!!:confused: Hence what i want to do is flash other rom and then flash quarks custom kernel to start my camera as well!!

Oops! Quarx kernel is for JB, which contains jb ramdisk internally. It won't boot for other than jb builds. You can install any jb rom, like, aokp, cna, slimbean all work with Quarx kernel, but not with any other cm9 and less builds.

U want to say that these roms aokp , cna , slimbean are based on quarks custom kernel?? or after flashing these roms do I need to flash quarks custom kernel??:confused:

Premaca,

Does this mean that there is no way to downgrade to other roms like MIUI (gingerbread based) or the stock defy Froyo rom using a nandroid backup?

You can go back from the custom kernel to your stock rom. The custom kernel doesn't change your bootloader version. So no need to worry.

Dear Uman, Ur reply will definately help thousands of defy user (mb525 ) who have accidently flashed full sbf of defy plus (mb 526) and who are on BL 7. Before quarks custom kernels i.e. second boot roms camera of all those defy users was dead. Only after flashing quarks second boot rom camera becomes on!!! But I have gone through full XDA Forum & according to my RnD, at present there is no way to downgrade BL7. For ur information I had tried 2.2 nandroid backup but it was giving me bootloader error, further more I had switched to other GB Roms but then kernels changes and phone was working fine without camera..:( Kindly confirm ur reply so that I will once again try to do so......:good:
