Guys this is basically me taking this AT&T GS3 thread and converting it to T-Mobile. I flashed and followed the OP of the thread and had FCs. If you already did your own homework on this please don't feel like I am trying to be a know-it-all - just wanted to save some people a little time here using the GS3 T-Mobile.

You need to be rooted obviously

You can download the GNote II camera, gallery, and best group pose HERE but after flashing and installing the group pose, i still had issues. I am running Stock JB

-------------------------------------

Here is what I did:

1. Use a root browser and go into /system/app and rename SecGallery2.apk to SecGallery2.apk.bak and rename SecGallery2.odex to SecGallery2.odex.bak (so you can revert if you want)

2. Flash Camera and Gallery zip from CWM

3. Reboot
[Note] some people have had to flash twice before the GNote II camera installs.

4. Put BestGroupPose.apk in /system/app and change permissions to rw-r--r--
(These permissions ) Attachment 1578546

5. Reboot (at this point everything worked except Best Group Pose, it force closed on me.)

6. In /system/app, click on the BestGroupPose.apk and select install

7. Navigate to /sdcard/DCIM and delete the .thumnails folder, and clear Gallery / Camera data

8. Reboot

-------------------------------------

Done. I know these steps seems superfluous but this is what i did and I am not a developer so don't feel like attempting to shorten the steps. Everything now works for me including video Slow Motion and Best Group Pose

I don't know if it will work on a non-touchwiz ROM. Do a CWM backup and give it a shot? From my experience, the Samsung camera is too integrated into the framework to function properly without Touchwiz

You should add that you should also backup the existing SamsungCamera.apk as a bak file. It was the only way to have the Note Camera install successfully for me. It couldn't install/overwrite otherwise.

Also clear your Gallery data if after performing the steps the Picasa part of the gallery doesn't load.

Excellent tutorial, and worked like a charm

imilleson, great find and thought ...Well everything worked and is working !! step by step.. even Best group pose..But for me there something wrong ?? Temperature is HOT .. screening is hot , battery getting hot.. I am not sure why but something is wrong, I am going to restore back.. ( Yes always do a CWM backup before changing up things.).
I will play with it and see what up.. anyone having this issue?

The SamsungCamera.apk is the GNote II's camera , the SecGallery2.apk is both gallery and camera for stock GS3 I believe. Thanks for the tip about clearing cache on gallery
