    Hi, you have two options, set your phone up as new, jailbreak and add tweaks a few at a time to see if your camera app crashes or uninstall stuff a few at a time, again testing to see if the camera app works. I prefer the second method. So long as you backup with PkgBackup first, it is then a simple task to reinstall your tweaks. I think it is time to be brave, make an iTunes backup too and start removing stuff. You might have a non ios5 compatible theme, so to test, remove Winterboard and test the camera. Then start removing say 6 tweaks at a time (making a note of what you have just removed) and then retest the camera app. When you find the camera app is working ok, you have then narrowed it down to a few possible suspects. To get all your stuff back on. Just do a restore with PkgBackup, unselecting the last bunch which fixed the issue. Now you have narrowed it down to 6 or so suspects you can install them one at a time. If this doesn't work, uninstall MobileSubstrate and retest. If that doesn't work, restore your phone as new and rejailbreak. There is no quick fix unless someone else has had the same problem on this forum.

    Hmmm interesting...
    I'll delete it and use OmniStat again I guess.

    Is there another settings tweak out that is as good if better?

    Thanks

    Thanks

    Yeah I am uninstalling tweaks as described.
    The only problem that I have is the camera crash is intermediate so this will take a long long time to identify.

    Oh well I know that either I do this or un-jb which is not an option I want to accept at this time until the new iPh5 is released.

    Guess I have a month to find the problem.

    Thanks

    Hi, I don't think that you need to look for alternative tweaks to the ones you are removing until you have proved it is the one causing the problem. During this process don't install new stuff, just remove stuff to see if your camera starts working correctly. If removing a tweak didn't fix it, then by all means reinstall it and carry on using it. Removing a bunch of tweaks at a time just speeds up the process.

    Sorry, I thought it was happening more often than not while zooming
