Lightbulb AR Effect (camera) isn't working properly.

AR Effect not working after .101 update. Only circles show up and the effect just rotates then vanishes.

Does anyone have the same issues.

What is DID! cleared data, uninstall, reinstalled no solution. same problem.

Same here. But I never saw it working so I just thought it was too hard to use or it was buggy.

Edit: Spoke too soon. After rebooting my phone hours later the camera no longer starts. May or may not be related to what I did below.
Edi2: Well I tried clearing data, removing this new AR Effect, restoring the old one, rebooting dozens of times, did a factory reset. Camera just refused to work. I just spend my morning doing a complete firmware restore and re rooting again. Now this issue could have been unrelated to the steps below, reader beware. In case it matters, I was running a D5503 with 14.2.A.1.144 firmware, rooted, locked bootloader.
------------------------------------------------

I had this issue, where AR effect would only show the light flashes but nothing ever appeared. I resolved this on my device by following these steps.

Follow the instructions
1. Delete (your) old AR Effect in system\app - or save in sdcard.
2. Use CleanMaster https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...r.mguard&hl=ru from delete odex@ (remnants of applications)
3. Maybe not to do, but I advise you to do. Use SD Maid https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rken.sdm&hl=ru
Delete lost lib AR effect. Section system or debris.
Basically I uninstalled AR Effect then used a root file browser to delete AR effect from the /system/app folder.

I then got AR Effect from here.

Unzipped it, moved to device, installed the apks. Then used Titanium Backup to move AR Effect to system folder. Rebooted and AR effect is working great.
