Changelog:
-forced 50 frames for hdr+ enhanced capture.

For clear picture in low light, use a tripod and set to min iso for auto-exposure compensation.

Arthur's latest 5.1.20 also worked with S9+ so I decided to do a minor mod to it: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1JC...lpWRQ2xdzjoZdm . This way it will give people a choice on the s9+ snapdragon only! I found that due to lack of exposure settings, arthur's version is more noisy than my version, but it does capture quicker. Note: 48 frames do not work, it will FC. However, I found that 46 frames worked fine.

So after tinkering around with multiple new Gcam ports to establish a good base, we decided to stick with the previous BSG 5.1 as base since it has RAW mode! A minor but very important change has been made to the Gcam port since release dealing with RAW capture. Portrait mode live preview lag is still a zero progress since of the snap845 change. Will need pixel 3 or 3 xl dump to figure out.

Changelog:
-force 30 frame bursts for all condition for RAW capture.

After multiple MULTIPLE trial and error we finally got hdr+ enhanced to work! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iW...OkA3KX6_y9Vx37 . Portrait mode is still wonky, live preview lags like crazy, and sometimes it takes a picture sometimes it does not and we are having very difficulty to figuring out why it's doing that. If anyone have an idea, please chime in. Enjoy, same config as previous version should work.

Here is the apk for people to start enjoying shooting. I was going to hold out until more fixes but I rather let people enjoy taking photos accurately: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cVd...w?usp=drivesdk. Note: This is strictly for Snapdragon 845 S9/S9+ only. Please do not ask why it does not work on Exynos. If it does then you're golden.

Settings to use: Model - Pixel 2 XL. JPEG quality - 100%. Enable toggle for 2016 pixel zsl. Close app from memory and reopen it.

Bugs:
HDR+ enhanced do not work.
Front HDR+ shows perfect live preview but when you snap pic it force closed.
Portrait front does nothing.
Portrait rear live preview slower than molasses but it work.

If any dev wants to work on this, they are more than welcome to but give credits to defcomg and myself please. Without defcomg, none of this could happen!


HUGE UPDATE: A stable semi-working version of GCam has now work for the Snap 845 S9 and S9+!! Thanks to defcomg ofcourse, so please PLEASE donate to him for his countless hours. I will also accept donation as of now so I can purchase new devices to test versions of Gcam!

Link will be provided once bugs are sorted through.

Sorry for the exynos users, but miniuser made it specifically for his exynos s7 edge though. Maybe the cpu is so different?

Very buggy. Very little works and pictures don't get saved. Hopefully we'll get a working version soon

I have updated the original post, this should work because I tested it multiple time on my unlocked Snapdragon version.

The current updated settings work nicely without any crash (s9+ tmobile) . But when I try to even make the smallest changes like turn off shutter sound it will crash the app every time, forcing me to clear data and cache.

Also, can we get an option to save to SD?
