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!

MANUAL INSTALL!

Make sure to have a file explorer installed to do these instructions, such as Root Explorer or (What I use) Root Browser Lite.

Steps :
1. Download the XML file
2. push it into your /system/etc
3. click yes when asked to overwrite
4. set permission -rw-r-r- a.k.a 644
5. reboot
6. PRESS THE THANKS BUTTON
7. ????
8. PROFIT!!!!!

this mod works great I will be looking around for more mods to see what we can use. I did find a 4.0 to 4.2 mod but the camera force closes even after clearing caches and fix permissions. But will keep looking.
