Camera [MOD] Increase Camera Audio/Video/Image Quality (Updated - 5/1/2013)

Before you do anything, DO A NANDROID BACKUP!!!!! I am not responsible for any mistakes that you make or if anything happens to your phone.

I have seen many people on here complaining about the camera/video recording and audio. So I decided to do a little research and well this is what I got. Many thanks go to mohit1234 as he actually compiled this for the Nexus 4 and I reached out and asked him if it would work for our device since they are so similar and I gave him our copy of media_profiles and this is what he suggested. I will continue to test out more values and try to make the camera the best it can be!

FLASHABLE INSTALL!

INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Download file and put it on the root of your memory
  • Reboot into recovery
  • Clear Cache/Dalvik Cache (Just to be safe...)
  • Install Camera Mod
  • Clear Cache/Dalvik Cache (Just to be safe...)
  • Reboot!
  • ????
  • PROFIT!!!

DOWNLOAD:
Download Here!

CHANGELOG:

12/25/2012
1) Increased 1080p bitrate to 20mbps
2) Increase audio bitrate to 320kbps for both 720p and 1080p
3) Changed audio channels to 2 for 1080p

12/29/12
1) Doubled the image decoding memory cap to 40mb
2) Increased all image encoding quality values to 100

1/12/2013
Small tweaks, nothing really to list, just getting it polished up!

5/1/2013
1) Camera Focus tweaks, should help with blurry pictures
2) Now works with all Stock LG ROM's and all CM/AOKP/AOSP ROM's!
3) Also, added a manual install for some people to plug it in themselves below!


WARNING: Make sure you make a backup (TWRP is the only recovery that it will work on) because I messed with a few other values and got bootloops and had to restore a backup!

DEVELOPERS: You can use this to incorporate in your ROM, just please make sure you give credit. That is all I ask for.

THANKS TO: AdriVelazquez/Beezy420 for creating this ZIP to easier install the mod!

I figured why not. I've had it on mine for a few days but figured I'll just upload it on Christmas. Let me know how it goes over the next few days.

Awesome thanks!

I'll be flashing soon. But out of curiosity, how does this make image quality in pictures better? Less compression?

To my knowledge, yes. I am new to all this so don't quite know everything but just increasing some of the values will make the image size bigger and less compression.

I made some small tweaks to image, nothing to drastic yet. Wanted to see how this worked with everyone.
