I would root if I could, but unfortunately my parents pay the phone bill, and they've prohibited me from rooting (for now...I've rooted and flashed ROMs before so that might be why ). What would happen if I installed the apk file w/o root? Anyone know?

EDIT: I think I answered my own question with a little bit more exploring...I'd still like to hear an official answer if it's not too much to ask for anyway.
Even though you can explore areas of the phone in es file explorer you would not be able to change anything because it will only let you read the files and you won't have write access which is what root does it allows us to read and write the system files

The apk installer does the same thing as the flashable zip and in this case the camera mod is a port of the g pro 2 camera this means it not only changes camera app but it also modifies a couple different files(mainly a bunch of libs for the camera and a few xml files) in the system sections and to modify these you need root access; if you try to run the apk installer without root access nothing will happen everything will remain the exact same way

Default OTG

Is it possible to save video and photo in this mod to USB OTG. I can`t find this option. I have 4.4.2 stock, root. Please help me to solve this problem.
Thank You for help!

at a certain point there was an attempt to add this feature but it would not allow us to save files on the otg and so it was removed
