Why my dragonboard use AndroidOS no camera APP


#1

I fastboot the AndroidOS img(From Official website) in my dragonboard but no camera app in the system


#2

There is an application note on operating with a USB camera (although it is not properly integrated with the HAL so it requires a custom app):

Beyond that I don’t think any camera is supported out of the box; it is not mentioned in the release notes:

This is a ‘feature’ of Android…

When you boot Android for the very first time, it looks for a camera, if no camera is found, then Android, trying to save space, decides that a camera app is not needed and helpfully deletes the camera app. Make sure the camera is connected and working when you reload Android and try booting again.
