Fix camera functionality on Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

Camera app included with Lollipop build does not work correctly on my device (Sony Xperia Z1 Compact). I can take one picture, but zoom does not work and taking more than one picture seems to be a problem.

 

To find out if it is a problem of included camera app, I installed the app "Open Camera" from Google Play. Unfortunately it works only on official Lollipop ROM from Sony, but does not work on my AOSP Lollipop build. Does anybody know, if some drivers or libraries are needed for camera function? Do I need to build kernel by myself?

Re: Fix camera functionality on Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

Original idea was to learn to understand more about software on my old device and to be able to upgrage to newer kernels and newer Android version and write own applications.

 

After I recompiled the kernel and flashed my new boot.img there is no fastboot anymore and I can't put original software back. If there is no possibility to put software back, I give up und postpone my plan until my next device is old.
