I have a BlackBerry 8900 with OS 184.108.40.2060 and try to take a photo from my J2ME MIDlet
(build on Linux/eclipse MTJ with current proguard and cod/alx created from jad/jar
with JDE 4.7.0 rapc net_rim_api.jar)
Item item = (Item) videoControl.initDisplayMode(VideoControl.USE_GUI_
byte photo = videoControl.getSnapshot("encoding=jpeg&width=480&
The 'photo' returned is always null.
The viewer (inside 'item') is a white screen, I can't see the building I want to take a photo of.
The media capture security popup comes as expected and is granted.
The same code runs fine on Sony Ericsson and Nokia devices.
Then I decieded to use the WTK original code from
but this MIDlet doesn't work either on my 8900.
What can I do next?

Applications built in the version 4.7.0 BlackBerry JDE are not compatible with BlackBerry device software version 4.6.1. Please refer to the following:
What Is - Appropriate version of the BlackBerry JDE

Thank you for this hint.
I have now downloaded the .jad and .jar OTA directly,
and my BlackBerry device itself does any cod translations
to avoid such influence.
Unfortunately it is exactly the same behaviour.
Was anybody ever successfull to take a photo with a standard MIDlet
with OS 4.6?
If yes: I need to investigate what is wrong with my code
If no: Is this a bug in the firmware?

I'm still stuck and can't deliver the App to my customers!
Can please a BlackBerry developer comment on this issue?
Note that the same code works fine on Nokia/Sony and that
even the original WTK example does not work on BlackBerry v4.6.1
