Announcement from TeraJL: infrared and secondary camera for Mi8 (photo and video)
I've made a modded version of the great "Simple Camera" by SimpleMobileTools ( simplemobiletools.github.io ) to work with the secondary pocophone and MI8 cameras including the front facing infrared camera, you can record videos and take pictures, it's free, no ads, no analytics, and open source.

Working:
- Camera and using back secondary camera or infrared camera on LineageOS/AOSP roms
Let me know if you have problems on any other rom

Not yet working:
it seems it is NOT WORKING on MIUI roms - it seems that MIUI has disabled the camera access on newer versions, maybe with root there is a way to reconfigure miui to allow the two new cameras to work, still investigating, if someone has an idea i would love to know


If someone knows some rom/kernel/root/magisk module developer that may be able to help me let me know and i'll be more than happy to try and make it work on MIUI!

Hope it's useful, thank you!

Thank you. It works.

Out of curiosity, any use beyond "trying"?

The MIUI Hidden Settings app is able to get access to the IR camera (Hidden Settings > QMMI > 34. Camera Front). Maybe something that you can pursue to gain access to the IR camera on MIUI in your app?

This photo attached I've shot in a 99% dark room.
The background is dark because it's pointing to my face. But if you point to the background ambient it all gets insanely brighter and visible (second attachment)

Of course the quality sucks. But we can clearly see what's in the path.

Good find!

Did you manage to find the pictures taken ? Don't think they're actually saved..

No, I haven't found the saved pictures. I'm not a 100% sure, but I think that the Hidden Settings app uses the factory/feature testing methods because of the Pass/Fail buttons that appear while using the Front Camera IR in it. I also get a green check mark next to the front camera entry in the QMMI list after I have tapped the 'take picture' button.
