Trying the camera switch on my PinePhone
#1
Since everything tried so on my PinePhone was working and I had just completed my weekly update to Mobian I thought it might be useful to check out the dip switches and disable the front-facing camera. Clicked down switch 5, which should have disabled the front-facing camera, only. Rebooted the phone and when I brought up the camera app nothing happened except showing the background wallpaper. It appeared as if the camera app was totally disabled. The good news was that when I returned the switch to the off position and rebooted the phone the cameras both worked perfectly. This was contrary to some reports I had read which had described a total reinstall of the OS to make the return settings work. Yaaa.

Am I missing something on setting the dip switches or is there still work in progress? Any comments or assistance is always appreciated. Thanks
