Hello everyone, I am creating this thread to provide the stable and beta builds of gcam, to avoid confusion and to keep the forums clean.

Thank you @S4turno(Celso) for hosting, mirroring, translating and sharing all a to z Gcam -

Special Thanks to @Arnova8G2 for all his support and hardwork !!!!

FAQ GOOGLE CAM-

I CAN'T INSTALL X VERSION, WHY?
Make sure you uninstall every other GCam Port on your phone. You can't have two 6.1 gcam versions installed.

HOW DO YOU SWITCH BETWEEN CAMERAS?
(6.1) Single Click - Camera Switch Button to switch between Regular and Front Camera
Long Press - Camera Switch Button to switch to Ultrawide Lens
Long Press - Photo Preview Button to switch to Telephoto Lens

HOW DO YOU USE NIGHTSIGHT WITH THE DIFFERENT LENS?
Select the lens in main mode, switch to Night Mode, then double tap the Camera Switch Button.

WHY THE FRONT CAMERA IS 4MP AND BACK CAMERA 12MP ?
Selfie camera uses pixel binning, same as for the main sensor. Since camera2api implementation only delivers a 4MP raw stream (16MP/4 = 4MP because of pixel binning)
GCam can only work with what raw stream the API delivers.
Same goes for back cam.

WHICH GCAM IS THE BEST ?
There is no best gcam. There are stable and beta builds which work fine for daily usage, but not the best. There may be some crashes here and there.

WHICH XML IS THE BEST ?
The xmls provided in the folder whose link is given below are the best at the moment.

HOW TO USE XML ?
A link to Celso Azevedo site is given below which clearly explains how to import and export xmls.
https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/a.../f/settings09/

WHY COLOURS ARE DULL ??
Sometimes the settings may not be applied by the xmls, and in 6.2 gcam, you need to manually set saturation levels.
Also changing awb can help.
Use the xml.
Use the settings from the given screenshots for 6.2 gcam.

WHY CAMERA CRASHES ?
Changes in libs may cause crashes, in such a case clear app data.

WHY AUX CAMERAS ARE NOT WORKING ?
You need ROOTED DEVICE for now to use aux cameras.

METHODS TO USE AUX CAMERAS- There are 2 methods:-
1) Setting selinux to permissive by-
1a) Using nfs injector magisk module or renovate ice magisk rom.
1b) Using custom kernels like Kirisakura or Smurf
2) Installing gcam as a system app-
1) Install any of the 6.1 gcam app as a standard user app by installing the apk as you would normally.
2)Open the camera app and enable the usual set of permissions (local storage, camera, etc.)
3)a)Using a root file manager like ex file manager or solid explorer, move the gcam 6.1 apk to sytem/priv-app directory and reboot.
3)b)Use the magisk module given below.

Here are the builds working for our 7 Pro-
Google camera 6.1
XTREME Xcam6_beta7 (STABLE)-

https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/cfil...ta7a.apk<br />

Arnova 1.7 (STABLE)
https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/cfil...90716.1800.apk

*These are the stable gcam, everything works perfectly except slow motion, stable for daily usage, also they support auxiliary cameras.

If you want to use aux cameras in
night sight and video mode, use xcam.


Xmls link-
https://drive.google.com/folderview?...TpEdilJuZ1fPl8
There are four xmls.

A quick guide on how to use xmls-
https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/a.../f/settings09/
Thanks to @S4turno

Google camera 6.2.030
Arnova 6.2 (STABLE)-https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/cfil...1800-Final.apk

Urnyx 6.2 (STABLE)-
https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/cfil...nyx05-v2.0.apk


Google camera 6.3
Arnova 3.0 (BETA)-

https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/cfil...90716.1800.apk


*For gcam 6.2-
Firstly, after installing apk, go to settings, go to about and enable "Enable Advanced Mode"
*For 6.2 Urnyx gcam-
It is a simplistic mod, not much to edit.
Guide:
- How to use manual controls?
- First of all, you must use HDR+ Enhanced. Then, enable the options in settings to show the sliders (only the 1st time). When you are in viewfinder to take a photo, click on "Pro" button to join the pro mode, where you can see all the sliders. Now, you can set any values you want. At the end, tap on the screen to apply changes (otherwise it won't work)
WARNING:
To leave Night Sight, use "X" button located on top left.

*Settings for 6.2 gcam here-
https://drive.google.com/folderview?...lrmxl0pTUlQR9O

NOTE-
1) Aux cameras work only in 6.1 gcam.
2) 6.2.030 and 6.3 doesn't support xmls.
3) Slow motion doesn't work for now.
4) Lens distortion in wide lens.

Do your versions support 4k video @ 60fps in normal and also in ultra wide mode?

The version of the other thread can switch to 60fps but actually the video is still recorded at 30

Hey, yes the 4k 60fps works but only with main cam, 4k works with aux cameras but only on 30fps.
