spirit - activation - camera app + solution
After jailbreaking with the latest spirit release (the fixed photo one), I was surprised that the camera app was not working properly. I took photos but they would never show in the photos library and if i try to record a video it would just hang.
I remembered that when I was activating, I did not wait for the activation, as soon as the message "waiting for activation" popped up and I got springboard access, I just closed itunes and ran spirit. IT seems that it messed up the permissions on the media folder.
so if anyone is having problems with getting the photos displayed after spirit, what needs to be done is:
- install openssh
- login to the iphone (winscp for example if on windows)
- go to the folder var/mobile
- set the permissions on the media folder to 0777 and check "recursive"
- reboot the phone.
everything should be working.
