deleting camera driver on iPad2

  • Posted: 09 January 2012 02:42 PM

    I really like the fact hat the original iPad does not have cameras, but there really isn’t a point in buying one now because soon it will be 2 models old…..

    On Android tabs (or android phones), the device can be rooted and with a file manager app the camera .apk can be removed very easily.

    Our friends at iResq.com can remove (physically) cameras on MacBooks and iPhone 4’s, but I already checked with them and they cannot do this on an iPad 2. 

    So I’m assuming this requires a JB or accessing the iPad 2 from terminal, right?

    How do I go about deleting functionality of the cameras on the iPad ?

    ...yup i realized I will have to re-do this when there is an iOS update. smile

    You could use the iPhone Configuration Utility and disable the camera that way. It will disable the camera and delete the camera icon from the iPad desktop.

    It is under Restriction Settings.

    Hey—I never knew about this. 

    Thanks.

    Is this what you are talking about?

    So this applies to iPad 2 / iPhone 4 / 4s ?

    And also—I can use this utility personally, correct?  I don’t have to be a corporation, right?

    I believe it can be used on all iPhones and iPads. And yes, you can use it personally.
