Hi. I'm not sure if this is the place to ask, but is anyone else finding that the forum is not displaying the most recent edit on posts? I'm using mobile to access the forums, and even refreshing the pages or opening a page in an incognito tab shows the earlier edits. The edit history shows the current version though, as does editing the posts.
The ability to edit your post will remain available for up to five minutes after you post in the forums, or until another post is made. Click the Edit button below your post to make any desired changes. After the edit period has expired, you still have the option to remove your own post: Click Report inappropriate content under your post.
I've been trying to get the camera to work on a bootloader locked and unrooted device, but haven't had much luck.
So far, I've noticed by running getprop that the key "vendor.camera.sensor.name.front" has the name of the configs in the vendor partition but there isn't any entry for the back camera ("vendor.camera.sensor.name.back"). The vendor partition's /etc/permissions folder also has an XML file called android.hardware.camera.front.xml but not android.hardware.camera.back.xml.
I'm trying to rule out as many software problems as possible before either sending the phone in for service or opening it up myself to check if the camera is connected physically. There is a mention of the phone's camera connector coming undone on the Sony forum, but I'm hoping that's not the case.
