Pixel 3 xl may haven't shipped yet.. but software bits like pixel 3 xl launcher, wall paper, etc are out.. and with that came out its amazing camera apk...
So why not run it on pixel 2/ 2 xl.. yey.. it did run.. and most of you have already installed it.. right? Beautiful ui.. ( iphone.. we literally dont want to copy your ui.. but ... ) And then raw + jpg support..
But.. we did miss that extra things .. right? Those software bits.. which google added to the cam .. exclusively for pixel 3..
And lil disappointed.. so i give it a try.. nothing to loose ??
And guess what.. the app showed up with all those "hidden" features..
Dont belive.. take a look at ss from my pixel 2 xl
so all you have to do is...
1. using a root file explorer, edit build.prop form system folder ( not vendor folder)
a) ro . product . model=Pixel 3 XL
b) ro . product . name=crosshatch
c) ro . product . device=crosshatch
use "blueline" and "Pixel 3" .. if you want to keep your device as smaller Pixel 3
2. reboot , now your phone model will be pixel 3 xl / pixel 3
3. install the pixel 3 camera apk mentioned in this link https://www.xda-developers.com/googl...-apk-download/
4. enjoy your new camera
NB:- this is a proof of concept hack, which i managed to get from a 10 min digging on last day's sleepless night.
NB :- to make portrait mode to work, first swich to front camera ( using camera switching icon) and then switch portrait mode from there. quick test gave me result that all ( or most) features are working, except the bug in switching directly to portrait mode fc the camera app( since we dont have two sensors for front camera. ), colour pop and depth adjustments work, h.265 encoding works , if you find something wont work, report. so that we can fix it hopefully.
I didn't check the rest, nor camera quality, nor anything else.. i am not that much into code writing or things.. may be some of you can pull out more..
