This is kinda work in progress port of Gcam with hdr+ for arm devices. it's based on google camera version 4.2.035.141213305-arm.

it needs camera api 2 enabled. you can enable it via flashing the zip I've attached or add below line into build.prop.

Code:
persist.camera.HAL3.enabled=1
Stock rom is preferred, but it should work on all roms as long as above requirement is met.


Google camera apk

Please let me know if auto/touch focus works or not. happy testing

Requires TWRP for flashing zip. or root for manually editing build.prop

Nice to see another thread on this..

Is root needed??

Also please try new Google camera APK.

Appreciate your work.
I see many devices having their own port of Google camera with more or less features, did you tried some of them on g5s? GCam ports for other devices on g5s?

Newer gcam apks are 64bit only so they won't work on phones with 32bit os like g5/g5s/g5+/g5s+ etc. this also needs root or custom recovery like TWRP to flash attached zip. i don't have this phone that's why i posted it here so others can see if it works.

slowmotion video won't work, nor i will fix it. since stock cam have that option already. this is only for hdr+.

Slow motion video works for me on XT 1806, also AEX 5.0 has the option already enabled, so you might not have to root if on a custom rom.

i don't have this phone to test, does HDR+ with touch/auto focus works or not on this phone ?


everyone talks about something different than i asked. feels like why i even bother. this community seriously sucks.

I also tried this port. Work quite fine, on screen in live capturing there's some light/colours distortions, but in the shot in the gallery is perfect. The app sometimes crashes, but it's still usable.
Shots with her+ shows a good quality in low light with good noise reduction and details compared to stock camera app. When I'll got some free time I'll post samples.

I tried this camera, my phone is not rooted and wouldn't know about api2 able... Wouldn't mess up with system files... Anyway, I installed this camera and works... Photos have good detail on them, only problem is a bit too much noise and it creates a raw file that I never asked... Anyway, hope the developer manages to reduce noise and stop that raw file... Thanks

kraatus90- Is this different from the version on the G5+ forums in this thread:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/g5-...-port-t3684264

I've been playing with that one all day on my G5+ (non S variant, single camera), but the focus issue is driving me bonkers. Even the posted "workaround" which requires going to video and focusing, then going back and trying to lock focus... sometimes the focus will drift when the camera reinits upon photo mode.

I too have an unrooted phone and no, this doesn't work.
How did you get it to work without rooting and without enabling Camera2 API?
