OnePlus 8T
Installed the latest release. It is supposed to support OnePlus 8T

However unfortunately many features aren't working at present.

I have tried to import the suggested XML file too but same issue.

1. Wide angle Camera switching isn't happening.
2. Video recording has multiple problems, like switching to slow motion freezes the app.
3. 2x zoom option no present but one can pinch to zoom.
4. Random App crash while switching between options (modes)

Thanks.

do you know how to find the correct GID values for my phone? It is a galaxy s20 fe 5g, and when I take a photo with the telephoto lens with the hdr++ activated, the app closes. without hdr or hdr+ that does not happen. in the other lenses I can take photos normally.

This was the problem with every OnePlus phone but thanks to arnova8G2 he has provided the configs that solve the problem. You can download the relevant config file by clicking here.

If Slowmo freezes on 8T then you haven't imported the config. OnePlus Slowmo on Main needs OpMode in Stream Config. Enable All Files Storage Permission, clear app data then try with one of my new updated configs (2021-04-01): https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/app-arnova8g2s-google-camera-port.3862448/page-144#post-84737829

Remember to double-tap beside the shutter button to import the config.

Wide actually does work! You just need to zoom out, since there's a bug that it's zoomed in initially after switching. Took me forever to realize it as well. 😅

If I open the gcam from lockscreen and make the photo clicking on the viewfinder tries to open the Google photos but then crashes.
If I open the gcam with unlocked screen then no problem.
Also previous gcam version works fine
The error I get is the following
Code:
04-01 19:18:07.136 W/ActivityManager(1405): Background start not allowed: service Intent { cmp=com.google.android.apps.photos/com.google.android.libraries.social.mediamonitor.BackgroundThreadNotifierIntentService (has extras) } to com.google.android.apps.photos/com.google.android.libraries.social.mediamonitor.BackgroundThreadNotifierIntentService from pid=9602 uid=10285 pkg=com.google.android.apps.photos startFg?=false

Is it something can be fixed?

OnePlus Nord
Hi @Arnova8G2,
Thanks for your great work. I don't know if you "officially" support it but your latest release does not work at all on my OnePlus Nord with LineageOS 17.1

App shows a black screen at startup (the one with the tiny camera). I tried all 3 apks without success.

Logcat shows this :
Code:
Not starting debugger since process cannot load the jdwp agent.
java.io.FileNotFoundException: /storage/emulated/0/Gcam/log/logcatSTDOUT1617300889534.txt: open failed: EACCES (Permission denied)

It seems that I have managed to solve it. I have made a copy of my configuration in xml, in the change in "pref_list_camera_key" the value 21 for 52 and restored the xml and takes the photos with the telephoto lens with hdr ++ without forcing close the app.

*Oneplus 7 pro AOSP Custom Rom*

Hello everyone,
I've been playing with latest 8.1 GCam port today and found some bugs and resolutions to them as well. First off, I will start with one I wasn't able to fix.

1. Unable to restore XLM.
When I double tap black bar at the bottom it says "device out of storage"

2. 4k60 can't be selected
Solution: Go to developer options and search camcorder..4k60 and select this. You can also add 4k24 if you want to by cinematic 😎

3. Viewfinder is in low resolution
Solution: Once again go to developer options and search glpreview and turt of 3 values you will see. Boom! You are good to go.

For #1. The app fails to request the correct permissions. You have to manually go into "Settings/Apps/Camera/permissions/storage" and set "allow management of all files"
After that restart the app, and try again.

A detailed and professional version that suits Arnova as always. I cannot record video with the front camera on my Mi 9 device, this causes the application to lock for a few seconds and all other cameras to be black. But that's not a problem, I don't even remember the last time I used my front camera.

Xiaomi Mi 9 Main

Xiaomi Mi 9 Wide Angle

https://flic.kr/p/2kQKcx9
If you are experiencing video issues with front camera, it is usually a video stream problem. Some ROMs do not support video streams for back camera and/or front camera due to missing proper libs/blobs. So make sure to set Video Stream Config to ‹OFF› from Advanced » Stream Config menu. To give an example, if you set IMX586 QBC HDR stream for video, it will enable EIS on main camera, but it may break video on front camera.

    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:

    - 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>
