Question [SOLVED] Installing the stock camera on a custom ROM - Help

Hi all. I honestly can't find an answer or any solution that has worked for me for this. I am trying to install the Samsung stock camera application onto my CyanogenMod ROM (4.2.2) but so far attempts to install manually or restore via Titanium Backup have not worked. I tried the modded Camera apks however they do not install and moving the apks manually to the system app folder still doesn't work. Has anyone got a solution to this? I really don't like the Cyanogen/AOSP camera app as it's quality is worse than the stock one.

Samsung "stock" apps require the touchwiz framework in order to function......this is something that is NOT and NEVER WILL BE included in CM ROMs.......
What you're asking just ain't ever gonna happen/work.......

Ah okay that explains it. Looks like I'm going back to Chameleon ROM then.

I think that's your only option....that or one of the other hybrid ROMs.....
The only downside to that being that as they are Sammy based, you're never going to get a KitKat hybrid.......

Yeah, but it's a downside I'm willing to put up with - just so my camera is the stock one (I like it since the images come out better). If I could find another hybrid ROM like Chameleon, except on Android 4.2.2 (like the last stock ROM) that would be great.
