Camera [MOD][31May.] ★ Lite Camera-MOD ★ <><> for 4.1.2 / 4.2.1 / 4.2.2 / 4.3



As requested, I decided to make a thread for this.

This is a MINIMAL, LITE and STOCK WAY camera mod.

My goal is to offer a slight modification of our Samsung camera's, with faster and regular firmware updates.

I'am joining jobnik's philosophy, but included only the minimal needed by many users (check features part).

It must be only flashed over an official Samsung ROM and not AOSP/AOKP !


Be sure to read the entire thread (+ NOTE section) before posting any question, everything you need to know is here !


Feel free to include my mod to your themes/mods/roms but please don't forget to inform/ask first via PM and credit me in your original thread.




★ FEATURES ★ :
  • Camera 'volume up' and 'down' buttons as shutter.
  • "Low battery" warning and blocking removed.
  • "Can't use flash on low battery" warning and blocking removed.
  • HQ video recording (*) :
    - 1080p: Normal - 17MBit / Fine - 24MBit / Superfine - 30MBit.
    - 720p: Normal - 9MBit / Fine - 13MBit / Superfine - 17MBit.
  • HQ sound recording (*) :
    - 192 kbit/s (instead of 128kbit/s).

    (*) = download "HQR" versions ("High Quality Recording") to get this feature.
.. and no other !

★ NOTE ★ :

 
  1. I'am using WanamLite rom, so each versions will be initially based on latest release of wanam deodexed rom's.
  2. My flashable zip directly includes a dalvik-cache wiping (may broke your battery stats after flashing), and automatically backing up your old camera (in case you want to revert back), so you an flash this mod safely.
  3. Shutter keys will work only in camera mode, and not camcorder one.
  4. I won't add any futher feature into camera.
  5. This camera will stay with pure stock dpi, so not compatible with 240dpi (or any other value).
  6. You won't be able to use zoom as hard keys anymore as they will act as shutter, but you can always use pinch-to-zoom instead.
  7. It's fully compatible with JKay Deluxe v14.9 (and above) theme.
  8. It will replace your SamsungCamera.apk, so if you use any other theme which theme it, you will lose your previously themed camera.
  9. You do not need to exactly flash the same based firmware that match with yours (android 4.1.2 will not work on a 4.2.1 firmware for example).


★ WHAT IS MODDED ★ :

 
  • SamsungCamera.apk


★ PREREQUISITE ★ :

 
Any odexed or deodexed international I9300 Samsung official 4.1.2 or 4.2.1 Jelly Bean ROM.
This mod is not recommanded to be flashed over AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint/Verizon I9300 roms, it can work but meet various bugs, so please do not expect any fix from me.


★ INSTALLATION PROCEDURE ★ :

  1. Always nandroid backup ! (just in case)
  2. Download your firmware version ZIP file
  3. Download "Restore.zip" (in TOOLS section).
  4. Put both files in your sdcard folder
  5. Reboot to CWM Recovery
  6. Flash Camera-MOD file
  7. Reboot your device
  8. Done !

"HELP !! I LOST MY CAMERA APP AFTER FLASHING YOUR MOD !!"
No panic, follow this :
  • Check SamsungCamera.apk permission and set it (if not already done) to 644 (with RootExplorer for example).
  • Reboot to CWM Recovery
  • Wipe manually your cache and dalvik-cache
  • Reboot your device

★ HOW TO UNINSTALL ★ :

 
  • Reboot to CWM Recovery
  • Flash "Restore.zip" file
  • Reboot your device


★ HOW TO REMOVE CAMERA SOUNDS ★ :

 
  • Download "ADD-ON_Camera_Sounds_OFF.zip" (in ADD-ONS section).
  • Put this file in your sdcard folder
  • Reboot to CWM Recovery
  • Flash "ADD-ON_Camera_Sounds_OFF.zip" file
  • Reboot your device
Note : This will remove most of camera sounds possible, but some of them will still remain, as they are located in the APK itself. You can always remove them manually in it, but I absolutely don't recommand it ! (it will probably not work and maybe cause FCs). In case you want to get back camera sounds : just flash "ADD-ON_Camera_Sounds_ON.zip" file.


★ KNOWN ISSUES ★ :

 
  • None.








AS ALWAYS, FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK !

Yes, the warnings are very important to have removed. I also use jkay power shutter, but it doesn't seem to hold to focus, release to shoot properly, so i also like to have the volume buttons as shutter as a backup.

My favorite would be to focus with volume up (hold to focus, release to shoot) and burst shoot with volume down (no focus, just quickly shoot)

Perhaps something to consider?

Then you will have both Volume and power buttons as shutter. But you will lose zoom benefit if you flash my mod.

Yeah I see what you mean, sometimes it don't focus correctly or continue to focus even when shutter is pressed, you will have to wait the focus and then press the touch you want, but I don't think I can do anything about both this and what you said, sorry
I really want to keep it simple as I will have to do ot for a lot of future firmwares to come and I don't want to spend 1 hour for each apk's
