I think I’ve found a fairly huge bug in Galaxy S versions with front camera. I’m using i9000 with Froyo. This crash is easily re-creatable. Just want to know whether this occurs in all models.

1. Go to “Camera”
2. Select the main camera (the back camera. Should be already selected)
3. Press the “shooting mode” button. (2nd button down from the top left hand corner – the one with the “rectangle” or “screen” icon)
4. Select the “Add me” mode from the list of available shooting modes (it should be in screen 2/2)
5. “Add me” mode should now be enabled with your screen now divided into 2.
6. Without turning off “Add me” Repeatedly and quickly switch back and forth between the main and front camera by pressing the switch camera button (the top left hand button - the one with the “spinning” camera icon). After a few times (usually under 5 times).  It will crash / hang.


Thanks

Didn't know you're expecting an answer.

Why would you want to "Repeatedly and quickly switch back and forth"? You're purposely making it crash.

Anyway, I've just tried it, for more than 50 times, and it did not crash/hang.

Thanks for the reply.

Actually, I discovered it accidentally while mistakenly switching modes. Later I discovered the recreation steps. Is your Galaxy S on Android 2.2? Also, did you try it with the "Add Me" option mentioned in 4? It only happens when that mode is enabled.

Sorry, just want to find out whether this is a hardware fault in my phone, or just a software bug.

Yes, it is showing on my sig and I'd tried it by following all your steps.

Did you give it a factory reset/wipe after updating to 2.2?

You'd mis-understood, Froyo is 2.2, 2.2 is Froyo.

Why?.........read This.

Please note that doing a Factory Wipe WILL remove all your contacts, data and 3rd-party applications.

Thats it! That did the trick!

I've factory reset it, and now its working fine!

Wow you guys blew samsung support out of the water on that one! They told me to bring the phone over for inspection. I was kinda bummed out coz I bought this phone from abroad.

Double silly of samsung to not mention this factory reset after the update.

Anyhow, while I was backing up my contacts I saw Samsung has a new 2.2.1 update out. Thought I'd give it a try now that I've wiped my phone anyway. Have you guys tried it? is it better than 2.2?


P.S: I actually made a type in my previous post. I meant to say "Kies" where I have said "Froyo". (Honest Wink Wink )
