Ok.. I found a temporary solution for the camera fix:

The camera (not camcorder) works if you use "libLCML.so" and "libbridge.so" from the Moto (.596) release instead of building from source. Just push the two files mentioned to the /system/lib folder from your handy backup of the .596 system, reboot, and voila ... working camera (not camcorder, sadly). In case you don't have a backup of those files I've included the 2 files in a zip.

How I did it.

* Extract files from enclosed .zip onto SD card (libLCML.so and libbridge.so)
* navigate to /system/lib and rename those files to libLCML.so.bak and libbridge.so.bak
* Copy/Paste your extracted files to the /system/lib directy.
* Change permissions back to rw-r-r--
* Reboot

Voila!! Working camera! :)

Hope this helps for now. Remember, if you flash a new nightly, though, and camera is not fixed in that nightly, you'll have to re-do this process to get your camera to work.

EDIT: This has been reported to fix Camera, Netflix, and Youtube app :)

I added a CWR flashable zip to the post. (CM4DX-CameraFix.zip)

Can one of our resident gurus make a flashable ZIP to make things easier?

you have to mount it. and you need a file manager with root permissions...i use root explorer so i dont know what else works

Yeah. I still have that same problem. Can only use the touchscreen button. I use Vignette for my camera app, and I can use the (hard) button, but it doesn't pre-focus like it used to. But hey! I can take pictures again!!!

File manager will not work. You have to be able to mount R/W in order to rename system files. Get root explorer, or better yet.. just flash P3's zip in the OP.
