Google Camera Port
by @Arnova8G2

This is a support thread for apks created by Arnova8G2. Here you'll find basic instructions on how to use this port and how to properly report bugs.

Compatibility:
- The camera2 api needs to be enabled;
- Most versions only work on Snapdragon SoCs, but some work on Kirin and Exynos processors;
- 64 bit ROMs are a requirement;
- Doesn't work on phones without RAW support (eg: some Sony devices);
- Newer versions may work only on new Android versions. Old versions might be better for old Android versions;

Known issues:
- FAQs and troubleshooting

- Slow motion is broken on some phones and Android versions;
- Some devices have issues with their front cameras (eg: OnePlus 3/3T, 5/5T). You may have to install a fix (if available for your phone) or disable HDR+ on the front camera (setting only available on some apks);
- Features on new Google Camera versions may take some time to be ported;

How to report bugs:
If possible, post on a thread for your phone (check this list or your phone's forum) or here if you can't find a thread for your phone. Please describe the issue and give details about your setup:

- Phone, ROM, any fixes installed;
- Name of the apk you're using;
- Screenshots or video recordings of the bug if you're able to;
- A logcat if there's a crash (How to save a logcat: video guide, advanced guide);
- Steps to reproduce the bug/crash;
- Mention @Arnova8G2 username;

- Your report will be ignored if no logs or a good explanation is provided.
- Arnova8G2 will do his best to fix bugs, but keep in mind that this is a free port and he also has his personal life.


Example of a report:
@Arnova8G2 Portrait mode crashes on my OnePlus 3 running LineageOS 15.1 (Android 8.1). I'm using "GCam_Pixel3Mod_1.1_build.6.1.013.apk".
To reproduce, open the app, go to portrait mode using the front camera, and take a picture.
Here's the crash log: <google drive link>

Which version should you use:
There's no "universal app" or "universal settings" for all phones.

There are a few apks known to work well on a big number of devices, so you can try them. You can also test apks from other devs. The XDA portal team made a list of apks for each phone and while it's not 100% accurate, it can be useful for new users.

I recommend that you find a thread for your phone (on your device's subforum - see this list of links or use XDA's search). There you'll find other users with the same phone as you, the best versions, settings, etc.

Export/Import Settings/Configs:
Some versions support import/export of configs. This allows users to quickly load good settings for their phones and shared improved configs with other users: How to import/export configs.

ARCore, AR Stickers, and Playground:
Follow these instructions (provided by @starcms) to use ARCore, Arnova's modded Stickers/Playground, and other 3rd party apps:

» Guide: ARCore, AR Stickers, and Playground

tl;dr:
- Android 8+;
- 64 bit only;
- Supported devices can install ARCore from the Play Store, but still need a modified version of Stickers/Playground;
- Unsupported devices need to manually install ARCore, modded Stickers/Playground, and install a fix/way to enable ARCore;

Thank you so much for the new build! Only problem I'm facing is when launching camera from lock screen via double tap power button, camera fails to start every time and says " To function properly, Camera needs your permission. Unlock your device and go to Settings to allow permission for Camera."

perfect work on Oneplus 6 Devices.
now you just need to fix the fact that it uses 12mx and not 16mx and it will be perfect.
because for the night mode is fine, but as regards the day loses resolution against the stock room of oneplus due, in fact, of the resolution.
if you can fix this thing I can officially replace the oneplus camera with your app

    I don't forget the samsung users, I received a lot of messages to fix this version.
    @Tolyan009 I will work on this version because it is faster on a device with a little RAM would add B-S-G setting and miniuser123 setting.
