How To Get A Front Facing Camera On Your Vibrant

There are a lot of mods at XDA, and this one is for the Samsung Vibrant, courtesy of XDA forum member siirial.

If you fancy a front facing camera for your Vibrant, take a look at this mod – you’ll need a specifically compatible ROM for the front facing camera, the right kernel, a front facing camera (of course!) and be up for part dismantling your device.

For full instructions including compatible ROMS, kernels and where to source a front facing camera, head on over to the modification thread.
