Default [MOD] MIUI Camera (No FFC option yet)

All credit goes to Nitroglycerine33, so if you like this, throw him a couple bones. He modified some files to make it work with the X2. I just extracted it from his Eclipse v7 ROM for the X2 and brought it here.

This will greatly increase your shutter speed and make your camera experience much better overall. I found the stock Bionic camera app to be garbage and was sick of waiting 15 seconds for it to focus.

I recommend using this with Gallery 3D. You can still view pics using the Blur gallery, but you won't have any options to share.

DIRECTIONS:

1) Using Root Explorer (or similar program) go to system/app and find blurcamera.apk. Mount system as R/W and rename app. I just added a .bak to the end so I could revert back if I wanted to.

***UPDATE--This is optional. Both cameras get separate icons (my reason for writing the original post as so) and now you can use stock for the FFC. Either way, Nitro said he'll get an update out soon. Maybe if you like this, you can find the thread here about getting him a Bionic. The man makes some stellar ROMs.

2) Download the attached .apk and move to system/app. Change permissions to:

XXO
XOO
XOO

3) Download Gallery 3D (if you wish) - Market link: Gallery 3D

4) Reboot and enjoy!

***You will lose your front facing camera option. I'm going to work on getting that fixed. Until then there is no known workaround.



Again, this is all Nitroglycerine33, so give him credit.

And of course, thank the MIUI team.

Stupid question: Does this include the camcorder as well?

That's what I'm using, and I have it working fine. Did you change the correct permissions?

As far as the camcorder - it's there, just doesn't have a dedicated shortcut. It's accessible from within the camera itself.

Default Miui camera

Works great. The only problem I see is you loose the front facing camera. Not a big problem

Eh. Didn't even think of that. Lol.

I guess I'm not used to having a FFC. Editing OP now. Good find.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but it won't allow me to install the app. I tried installing before moving to system/app and after. Permissions good, blur camera renamed, but no luck. Any tips or am I the only one with this issue? Thanks!

Did you reboot after you made all of the changes?
