I wonder if it is possible to mod the camera app in the s8(+) like zeroprobe did with s7 camera (https://forum.xda-developers.com/s7-...rates-t3439870) so that we can increase picture image quality and video modes bitrate ? (as most of you know, our brand new-and expensive- s8 already gets beaten by Pixel and Htc u11 in the camera department, but the zeroprobe's Mod on the s7 did wonders: i had the phone and the mod and it was extraordinary). I already asked zeroprobe and he said he will maybe buy the s8 in the future (in a couple of months) because it is too expensive for him (which to me sounds very unsure and definitely too far away). I'm just asking if there are developers here NOW that already have the phone (and also the knowledge how to do it..one could see examine how zeroprobe did it in his mod ).
I could also start a BOUNTY for this Mod (my donation would be 30€ from the start, but if another 50 people donate only 10€/$ it would suffice) and if enough people want this, we could get the interest of some talented (senior) developers here..
So guys, please comment and let me know if you guys are interested in getting the best camera (for a phone that cost a lot and deserves to not be held back by Samsungs software limitations).

I have already modded my S8 camera on the S8 ports. I will post the files shortly, can not guarantee them to work with the S8 though, since im only running on a S7.

Features:
- Increased Bitrates
- JPG Quality to 96%
- HDR, Track-Focus for all resolutions
- Disabled Stickers
- Aqua mode (not sure if it's enabled on S8 by default - basicly locks the screen and allows for underwater recordings)

thanks, flashed and I think it works... but I guess the picture size is still the same as its still 96% like stock? btw, is it possible to add taking pictures when recording 1080p 60fps, I remember the S5 camera mod back in the days it was possible

OK, thanks for the files, I will test it soon.. but what I had in mind was something like an app.. because different people will want different bitrates\jpeg Quality... so we still have to wait for a developer with the s8..
