In which I find a solution to an iPhone camera bug

iPhone Camera Bug

iPhoneThe restore I did yesterday on my iPhone failed to fix the problem I was having with the camera. Even after completely wiping the phone and resetting multiple times, the camera simply refused to save photos to its internal file system. I was ready to just complain at a Genius Bar in an Apple store this weekend (when I will no doubt be getting the new iPhone anyway), when I decided to do one last Google search for an answer. And, of course, Google provided. I followed the advice of olemono posted on April 22 and now the camera works again!
