    Default Iphone 3g camera is stuck at shutter when I open the camera app
    Hi there,

    I just updated my iPhone 3g to 3.0 via iTunes. When it finished updating, I went to my camera app and the camera never really opened, it just hung on the shutter screen (photo posted below). The phone is still completely responsive as I can press the home button and go back to the home screen. It just doesn't want to open the camera

    I restored 2 more times (once as new phone and once from backup) to see if that would help the situation but no luck.

    Anyone experience this or hear about this before?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Did you try a hard reset?

    something simple... tap the screen? mine used to hang there and it seemed like if i tapped the screen it would open... maybe coincidence..

    if not i'd restore it.

    I had this issue a lot too, one time it actually crashed the phone (this was before I jailbroke it, btw) and it reset and... It never happened again! Strange.

    Just a thought, people having this problem, can you view your camera roll OK?

    Have you guys checked your permissions on the Camera.app?

    Uh, the camera application when you SSH in...?

    I believe that's the name of it; the permissions on it should be 0755 I think.

    U can look for the M68AP.plist and find a copy of it and then replace your old one and you should have it fully working again that way you dont have to do a full restore

    I just upgrade to 3.0.1. No changes! Camera still NOT working!
    I guess no body care about you in Apple .

    I'll go back to my HTC Tilt and the windows mobile 6.5, there is a whole developers site working for you just to make you happy with your phone.

    F**K Apple!!!

    Camera was working on 2.2.1. How do I downgrade to 2.2.1?
