Can't install separate camera app (cm 11 m6)

I have cm 11 m6 installed and I really don't like the stock camera. I was trying to install a ported version on the original G2 camera which I found to be a lot better, but every time I download the apk and install it, it just says "not installed" or something like that. I tried another camera too (MIUI) and it did the same thing.

Am I missing something here? Do I have to do something with the permissions (I don't know how to change them) ?

Thanks

Do you have "Unknown source" checked in settings>general>security?

Yes, I have that checked. I have installed other apps this way. It just seems to be the camera apps that don't work.

I didn't think a stock cam would work with cm or aosp since that's what keeps a lot of people sticking with a stock rom. I would read and ask in these threads.

That's what I was thinking that too but there was someone here that ported the stock G2 camera app for AOSP Roms. But its not just that app, its other camera apps too that are supposed to work with AOSP.

I will look into those threads.

Thanks

No problem but I would try Jishnu's. I didn't realize he made a version for cm/aosp. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2471900

This also looks promising.
