Under the great efforts of developers like B-S-G, Arnova8G2, cstark27, xtrme and so on, our device xiaomi mi8 is able to acquire excellent pictures as what pixel 3 & 3XL can do. Let me make some conclusions on this thread.

The most flawless versions are from B-S-G, which are named like "MGC_6.1.021_MI8_V2b.apk", many developers use B-S-G versions as a base and add more features or compabilities. B-S-G versions can accessed in a telegram channel.

GC(Mi8) by B-S-G
Here you can find port GCam specially for Xiaomi Mi 8.

Download telegram and join the channel above, you can find latest version and instructions.

The other versions are not intended to work on mi8, but you can also try it by yourself. In my experience, some of them DO NOT WORK on MIUI roms.
You can download them by the link: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/a...google-camera/

For the fresh users of google camera, here are some settings recommended by B-S-G. They are just an basic instructions, if you have higher demands it is better to change the settings by yourself.

OP6 don't use the same IMX363 Exmor RS lens. So tweaks are probably needed for sure.

I'm sorry to tell you that recently I've been following developers' work in oneplus 6. Here's the link: https://forum.xda-developers.com/one...3797544/page39 . And I didn't receive any new about mi 8.

I got my Mi 8 Global version from Hong Kong and unlocking my bootloader. I have to wait 15 days to complete the bootloader unlock. I will try to install latest Arnova Gcam when it is ready.

But mix 2s users reported lots of bugs, they are using the mod modified for OnePlus6, which used sdm845 as CPU.

I tried many versions, the only one available is OP6v0.1_MGC_5.1.018_FINAL_3.4A.apk, but severe bug still occured.
The black level of hdr+ image look like purple, i can't change tint using Manual fixed black level offset.
Hoping developers can fix that for us, thanks a lot.

What method did you use to enable the camera2api ?

I don't know how to do it. Extract it from my phone?
I think I need to have my bootloader unlocked to do so?
