[8.0+] ROG Phone Apps Ports - Live Wallpaper + Camera

With the help of @MishaalRahman, I've been working on porting a few interesting apps from the (still upcoming) ROG Phone. These include, the Game Mode Live Wallpaper (for which I've also made a companion app, used to toggle the states of the live wallpaper), and the Asus PixelMaster Camera.

Things I'm very aware of:
- Camera needs polishing and a clear bug bashing.

Usage of the Game Mode Live Wallpaper and it's Companion Controller:
The live wallpaper by default launcher in the 'Off' state. To change it to 'On', you need to download an install an app I've made for the occasion, the ROG Companion Controller.
As soon as you open the app, it'll ask for Root permissions. This is to grant itself the WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS permission. If you don't have Root in your device, the app will greet you with a screen explaining how to proceed and grant the permission in order to work.

Once done, touching on the app icon will toggle the Game Mode Live Wallpaper between it's 2 states, 'Off' and 'On'.

Tried the camera APK on Poco F1 . It did not work. When the app launches it freezes on the image that is infront of it. It does not give a black screen but freezes. Hope it can be made to work. Since there is lot of difference in gcam app and stock app, this app could also show some improvement in image captured.

Camera is unfortunately crashing on the Pixel XL (1st gen), let me know if there's anything I can do to help out with that. Looks great though! Great work for porting it so fast!

Camera working with LG V30, even the wide angle camera work.
Would be cool if the wallpaper can change automatically depend on day or night

The ROGPhone Camera port works on ASUS Z010D (Zenfone Max), but it's super resolution, GIF, and time lapse features crashed with error message saying "camera is being used by another application, please close that application first". But it's ok for me. Thanks for your works.

The camera port is working on my Moto G5S Plus running stock android 7.1 (32-Bit). Only automatic and pro modes working (without HDR). Video recording, super resolution mode, GIFs, slowmo and time lapse are not working. Great job, hope to see more features working!

Camera works on my Redmi 2 on Lineage 8.1 Treble.
However max resolution is limited to 1mp (full resolution is 8mp) and all manual controls except exposure do not work.

Video recording also broken.

Rogcontroller app doesn't open at all in poco f1 (miui 10. 8.9.20)it just displays white screen

The app's functionality is extremely basic - It should display the set up text when no root nor permissions are detected.
What I'm getting the feel of, it detects you have Root yet you denied it, causing the app to try over and over.

Nevertheless, if you grant the application the WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS permission through adb in a PC, that will work.
The command is:

Code:
adb shell pm grant com.linuxct.rogcontroller android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS

---

As for the rest of people here sending out feedback of the camera app, thanks. As some asked, yes, it does require Camera2 API.
If you encounter crashes, please provide logs to help debugging it!
