Camera [Q] Still no way to change camera exposure setting?

No third party app I've found is able to change the camera exposure -- whether on the stock rom or the others I've tried, it just stays the same, no matter what you set it to. Looking through these forums, it seems this is a pretty well-known problem, but I couldn't find a solution.

Is there still no known way to fix this? Do any alternate roms or kernels help?

i don't think our phones have the hardware capable for this . there may be away to simulate it but true exposure timing adjustment is mechanical

True, but it is definitely capable of adjusting the exposure when it detects brighter or darker light. It's unfortunate that unlike my horrible old HTC phone (Wildfire S), the functionality doesn't seem to be exposed in software...

i believe the iso is adjusted not the exsposure, to assist with light .
