Hi, so i found an old, fully working version of GCam for Mi Note 2 [scorpio]
It's like for Android M, but it will work on all Android Versions above 6.


I tested it on MIUI 9 Global, China, miui.am, xiaomi.eu/miuipolska, epicrom, LOS 15.1, PE 8.0 and it's working just fine.
I am not responsible for any issues that might happen in process of installing that mod.

How to Install it?

Step 1: Root your device [I recommend via Magisk flash, through TWRP]

Step 2: Enable Camera2Api, and there i have two options for you:

Method 1: An Magisk module that enables this feature, here is the thread and download *CLICK*

Method 2: By editing build.prop file, but how to do it?
1: Download any root file manager [I recommend MiX]
2: Find the prop.build file in folder "System"
3: Scroll to the last line, and add "persist.camera.HAL3.enabled=1", save and reboot.


Step 3: Install the APK file, which is under the tutorial!


DOWNLOADs

Google Camera App: *CLICK*
MiXplorer App: *CLICK*
Magisk: *CLICK*


BUGS AND ERRORs

1. Selfie Camera bug - Selfie Cam is upside down
FIX:
Search for msm8996_camera.xml file in /system/etc/camera
Then look for:
<Position>FRONT</Position>
<MountAngle>360</MountAngle>

And replace "360" with "270" [U need to do it twice}
Then Save and Reboot.

2. Slow Motion error
POSSIBLE FIX: Download an Magisk module, i don't know if it's working at all.
Download: *CLICK*

3. Stock Camera HDR crash
I can't find any FIX for that, but Camera2Api is not always crashing HDR stock [But in my case it doesn't crash, working just fine.]

I hope u liked it!
If it helped u, just leave me an "Thank" or something like that, i will be grateful!

I'm happy that you discovered this and even happier that you shared it! Thanks!
Now, onwards, we need to make the new gcam work on our phones. Can't live without those AR stickers (Not really)

(Also, I didn't have to the front cam workaround. Using RR 8.1.0 r11)

6.0.1
Hi,
Do I need custom ROM or will this work on my Mi Note 2 with android 6.0.1, MIUI 8.5 Global (8.5.5.0)?
Can you send me any pictures to compare stock images to the ones taken with gcam?

I haven't noticed any problems on AOSP and MIUI based ROMs.
