This thread is a starter for the GCAM devs to hopefully provide us a working GCAM for the essential phone based on the new update. As of right now, you need to be on P at a minimum.

YOU NEED TO HAVE LOGCATS FOR HELP How to LOGCAT 101

You can also use a ondevice logcat tool, like matlog. I clear matlog, start it, directly create my problem, go back to matlog, stop it, then sort by "CAM" in this case, so i can see all camera related errors, then save it.

The idea is this.... all of the major gcam devs have the OP6 or something that isn't the essential phone. If we politely tag them, and have a logcat in hand, perhaps we can get support quicker for our device.

OP6 GCAM Thread
THIS IS FOR READING PURPOSES ONLY, DO NOT SPAM THEIR THREAD WITH REQUESTS, THERE WILL BE FM ACTION IN DOING SO

here is the link for @Arnova8G2 first beta
BETA 1

Hopefully, this will help get the ball rolling. Once i get home from work, i will have logcats for slo-mo, and no-hdr later.

If anybody else wants to help, again, please be descriptive with your problem, and provide a good logcat

@Arnova8G2 and @cstark27 (even though I know your moving on)

Here are logs:

1. Slomo crash. Slomo worked on test3, as long as we patch media profile, it works in general

2. No ability to take picture with hdr off

3. Taking a picture with zoom

I know these are already issues by in large. Maybe my logs will help.

Thank you for your help

Luckily for us. We have a pretty versatile phone at this point.

Tolyan009 just released his first build. It works out of the box. Here is the link.

https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/a...yan009/#apk524

al-ro from 4pda has some good stuff too, Where tolyans right now is pretty basic but effective, al-ro has ported some of the bsg mods over.

first release

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1F2C...w?usp=drivesdk

second release

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1nCq...w?usp=drivesdk

third release

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rg1...w?usp=drivesdk

Fourth release

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jlc...w?usp=drivesdk

Latest release

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iog...w?usp=drivesdk

The only things I find right now as "bugs" I guess is there is no lens button in more tab. Might be a us problem, but I'm not quite sure how to figure out if it's there or not.

I'm curious if you have seen/looked at this before - https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-...-lens-t3767531 It's a mod for the Xiomi Mi A1 to be able to use the 2nd rear camera (telephoto) with Google Camera. I haven't tried it yet, kind of afraid to bootloop since it appears specific to the A1 phone. But was curious if what they've done can help get the monochrome camera working on Gcam and other apps in a similar way.

I know you (I think?) had discussed the challenges and limitations of this when asking Essential for support in an AMA in July/August in which Essential basically said "no." But wasn't sure if anything done with the A1 is different than what you've tried.

I've tried sooooooo many things, including what they are doing. It doesn't work or help.

I spoke to cstark about this with the Nokia 8 ages ago and the basic idea was that if the secondary camera doesn't show up in camera identifier in the Camera2test app then there's literally no way to make this work.

Thats what ive come across as well. Im just curious though.... How is it hidden from apps like this. I know in build.prop there is a aux cam white list for apps. but ive tried adding all the package names...nothing. What are we missing, how does klik camera turn it on....
