    This is blocking us from updating to 2022.3 LTS series. Please backport it to LTS as soon as possible.

    It seems the fix was identified back in summer but only fixed in 2023.1 series, not on LTS?

    For us in 2022.3 up to the recent .16, the camera is nonfunctional and showing black textures in all Androids we have tried including modern ones. On some devices, the camera live view works but when we try to capture via GetPixels() it fails. In other devices, it's always black all the time, in both live view and with GetPixels().
