Dear community,


We are using the Adeneo's Gingerbread BSP 4.2 (latest release) which has support for USB UVC cameras.

In our application we are going to have two cameras devices: ADV7180 for analog video decoding and an USB UVC camera.

Adeneo's BSP does not support ADV7180 in Camera HAL by default, but there are some patches for r10.4 release which should work:

We would like to apply these patches to Adeneo's BSP and would like to understand the steps needed to enable a second camera (front_facing and back_facing) in Android Camera HAL. We have seen that newest IMX6 BSPs (ICS and JB) supports two cameras. Can anyone provide us some patches to Gingerbread in order to enable the second camera (and switch cam feature) or, at least, some steps on what should be done?


Any thoughts would be much appreciated.


Thank you,
