Hello, did anybody found a working version of GCam for Nokia 8 Sirocco after the recent update to Android 10? I tried many apps suggested in the Nokia 7 Plus thread, as it's supposed to have the same internals but no success. I disabled battery optimization. The app starts once, I allow it everything and afterwards it just crashes. The only port, which was semi-successful was KillerCam_V1-Final_SA10.apk based on GCam 6.1 (I can't post a link, sorry) I'm able to capture a movie but not a photo. I can make panoramas and use the lens blur but not normal photos or portraits. The version based on GCam 7.2 crashes like all other ports. Did anybody else had more luck?
EDIT: I also set it like recommended in this post:
Quote:

Killer Mod mandatory settings
1."Fix tap on focus" should be Enabled
2."Buffer Fix" should be Enabled
3."Using Sabre" should be Never
4."Max allowed memory" its upto you allow as maximum as you can. In my case 1680
Restart Your Device

The app is still not able to take photos.

It's not working because hmd disabled Raw Capture with the update, gcam needs raw for HDR+ and...well everything computational.

Can Raw Capture be enabled somehow on rooted devices?

there's a way to prevent gcam from crashing described on the Nokia Community board (can't post a link because I just registered):

1. Install KillerCam_V1.5_Revolution_6.1.021.apk
2. Go to app details and force stop Killer Cam
3. Clear all app data from Killer Cam
4. Start Killer Cam and confirm access to location etc.
5. Close Killer Cam
6. Install Gcam_6.1.021_Advanced_V1.6-Fu24_5Lens-02b6.5-A10.apk

this does result in a working, usable app at least, but still without RAW support of course.

Thank you for the answer, but what is the point of installing GCam Go? To me it behaves the same way as the broken GCam.

GCam Go is pretty decent for me. Not as good as GCam on Pie, but certainly better than the potato quality of Nokia's Camera app.
