camera app missing after update?

2012-11-11, 3:50 AM
Hello all.

Well I just updated my tablet twice and went to use the camera, but when I click on the icon, it says app not installed. The Lenovo app shop is empty as if it doesn't exist anymore. Where can I get this app fixed? Thanks.

Did you update from HC (android v3) to ICS (android v4)?

 

If so, ICS has a different camera app so the old icon (link) won't exist anymore.

 

On the homescreen, press the icon in the top right hand corner that looks like 6 little boxes. Then within this App "window" find the camera app. Press and hold it until the device vibrates and now you should be able to drag it onto the homescreen. Press on the icon and it should (at least in theory) open the camera.

 

If this doesn't work, it might be the app is corrupt. Let me know and I'll upload a backup for you to install.
