I have created a Magisk based DIY GCAM port for our 10's. Basically, it installs everything you need for it to work, and you try/select whatever GCAM you think works the best. All this will do is enable the extra features for GCAM

***SLOMO NOT WORKING ON OREO FOR ME***

Prerequisites:
2.xx.xxx.xx Nougat Stock sense, not sure about LOS or others (you can try, no guarantees).
3.xx.xxx.xx Oreo Stock sense, not sure about LOS or others (you can try, no guarantees).
Magisk 15.0 or newer (Uses 1500 template)
No Other GCAM installed (remove any prior to flashing magisk module)


REMEMBER TO SET ALL SETTINGS AND FC ONCE BEFORE USE!!!!!


What it does:

It replaces media_profiles.xml in system/etc : this allows for HEVC and 60fps

Oreo Version

It adds ARCore and ARStickers to system/app
It sets ro.config.calibration_cad=/system/etc/calibration_cad.xml
It adds res_ctrl.conf to system/etc
it updates all the various .xml files that have media settings within them


This is a free-for-all zip, meaning i dont care if you modify it, pass it off to other groups, help anybody else, etc.
I am not responsible if you get your phone messed up, it works for me, and for others. I will help as much as i can. Its a work in process, hopefully, it will make life easier for everybody. This is really close to being a DD, i will try other GCams as i find time. Im really waiting for Oreo on VZW, then ill really get into it. (AR Stickers, etc.)


Also, this is a HTC 10 thread, and while i dont mind helping people (I want everybody to have a working GCAM) this magisk module, especially the media_profiles.xml is very very very 10 specific. You can however, do the legwork, use this zip as a template, and make one for your threads/personal use as well. And i dont mind. Just dont come in here without a logcat with some phone that's not a 10 and say its broke. I will at least look at a logcat and help if its not a 10, but my demands have been expressed.

Also, for those with a 10.. Dont come in here and tell me its broke, not tell me anything relevant, have no logcat, and expect a fix...you will be meme flamed for my amusement...You have been warned. You should know better at this point!!!

Thanks

@Arnova8G2 Porting Gcam over to us, and listening to our needs

Changelog/Bugs:

DIY GCAM MODS: Everything but GCAM, Pick the one you like the best and use this mod to get the extras to work.

V31: Version back to 2 revs. 1: Skulshady V3.0, portrait works (6p or pixel 2017 zsl hdr +, that one has low light bug still), Tolyan009 v1.3.5, portrait doesnt work, more options (needs alot of configuration, pixel 2, 2017 pixel zsl hdr+ new, black level 64, hdr+ control on, turn off use google photos in debug settings)

V30: Oreo and Nougat: Added HEVC Back in, Removed Lens (Built into photos now), some people say slomo works in oreo now, you tell me Uses Arnova V7B6 Camera...too bad it's junk......

V28: Cleaned up media_profiles_vendor.xml and added HEVC support. (Slo-Mo at least loads the viewfinder now, getting warmer )

V24: Low Light/Flash Bugs fixed, increase sharpness might be better, still no slo-mo

V23: Same oreo bugs

v8 Nougat: Updated to arnova pixel2mod v6b14, probably the last good one
v8 Oreo: Initial release, has b14, and AR stickers, need someone to test it on oreo.

v7: 99.98% works, only "little" bug is if you take a low light/room is completely dark photo (front and rear), very rarely, but sometimes the camera app crashes.

v1: Initial release

Bugs: No front HDR, Slo-mo crashes went set to 240fps (120 is fine), can only take picture with hdr+ enhanced on for rear, view finder is a little slow for portrait mode rear.

V28: To ease confusion, 6P works with everything it appears, 2017 Pixel HDR ZSL has some issues in low/no light still (wanna help, PM @tsalta )

V24: Either works i believe

V23: I use nexus6P, you can use pixel 2 as well

v8: Use nexus 6P, it all works, you can use 2017 pixel zsl HDR+, but it will FC in dark/no light using flash.

How to modify the zip for your a new gcam:

1. uninstall gcam mod
2. reboot
3. Install gcam of your choosing
4. using root browser, copy directory from data/app containing google camera directory.
5. take the contents of that folder, copy the contents to the zip file, in system/app/GCAM, replace the contents in there.
6. reflash zip with new gcam

Also: Since for right now, there is really only 1 good working configuration, you will need to look at 3rd post for settings. Please fiddle as you like, post settings that are better than mine.

Hello dude i see you are starting like you sayd befor im just wondering what version you used like a base?

Arnova 1.6 or maybe 1.2 ?

Just wondering

Thanks for the Share will test it now!

Edit: Yes 1.6 i guess or perhaps 1.7 but the feel is like more 1.6

Yes this is the most stable build with all the options that we can have the only one thing we gona miss is the Pixel 2017 HDR+ ZSL the ZSL works only with this presets and since the new versions it doesnt work anymore the last time was worked fine on V 1.2

well i can take pictures with HDR+ and HDR+ Enhchanced from the Back camera so it is working fine not bug.
Also the Front HDR+ is working what i mean is it is made to work only In portrait MOD so when you shoot Portrait with the Front and you have HDR+ portrait camera enabled will get the effect this is how the build is mean to work so you can remove this from the Bugs it is not actually a bug.

Arnova 1.7 beta 1

It will only take pics on hdr+ if it decides hdr should be used. If you turn hdr off, it won't work.

Yea, I'm aware of the work around for front hdr+. But you can't just have hdr+ on the front camera in normal mode. So it's a bug still until we find a better alternative camera that works.

You can be the tester @tsalta if you like. I explained how to put different GCAMS in the magisk zip, so you can find the perfect version.

Yes im planing to make one version same with 1.6 because 1.6 is more stable than 1.7 beta ad 1.7 in 1.6 will take pictures always with HDR+ or Enchanged whatever you want from the back camera.

and i think 1.6 is one idea faster no freeze slownes on the viewfinder

@aer0zer0 i was planing to make another version but after alot of test the most stable build that work is 1.7 Beta 1 so thanks for the share.

I mean compared to the Other builds that have Portraid mode if not 1.2 is the most stable

Like ive sayd many times every build have some advantage and dissadvantages for example 1.2 is super fast and stable also has working Pixel config with ZSL in other hand do not have POrtrait

Well above 1.6 they have everything but the pixel config is not working and no ZSL at all.

Also i have some other builds that are Not Arnova diferent from different russian sites and i had the best Front + HDR+ mod and take amazing HQ selfies but only this is the advantage of the mod.

if we have somehow to make a mix like frankenstain from the mods we know who is best and work perfect to make One build that include all the things.

Thanks for the Magisk Module.
