The app that fails probably uses the same package name as the one that ships with the ROM.

This version is old and could be not compatible with A11 - I suppose you're running A11.
Yes, it is A11, thanks for that. It's just I saw his version of 7.3 gcam has config file for Poco X3 NFC (my device) and 8.1 doesn't. That's why I wanted to try 7.3, thanks for the answer anyway.

I just tested Wichaya's GCam 7 and I was able to install it on my Poco X3 NFC (running ArrowOS/Android 11).

GCam 7 itself should run fine on Android 11, that's why I think it's a package thing/the fact your ROM ships with a GCam, not incompatibility between GCam 7 and Android.

Yes, I think too it's a package thing (but for me, only with his version of 7.3, any other developer, no problems at all ), but I found 8.1 gcam with poco x3 xml config file anyway, so I uninstalled 7.3. Thanks for your feedback man.

Arnova8G2's new version (Gcam-8.1.101.build-V6.2.211013) supports .gca config files. All config files so far used the .xml file format.

What's the difference?

The main difference to a normal .xml config is that .gca may contain more than just settings. For example, a .gca may also contain things like custom libraries ("libs") that change the level of detail, colours, etc, of the photos we take.

.gca files are similar to .zip. They're being used because it only requires users to download and load one file vs two or more.

What changes?

When being saved - at least on Arnova's version - GCam uses a different folder:
  • .XML files: /GCam/Configs8/
  • .GCA files: /GCam/GcaFiles/
To load .GCA files:
  • Settings » Advanced » XML Config » Load » Select config
Other than this? Not much. For users it's just a new file format. I'm only sharing this here to inform you that configs now may be a .xml or a .gca.

Is the .XML format dead?

No. Not all modders will adopt this and users may still create and share .XML files. Both files are supported.

Hello,
Gcam-8.1.101.build-V6.2.211013.2305_Snap.apk (org.codeaurora.snapcam) #
Gcam-8.1.101.build-V6.2.211013.2159_ruler.apk (com.samsung.android.ruler) #

Both versions don't work with the front camera (I installed the Magisk module).
There was a while that I didn't update the app. I probably missed something...

OnePlus 3T Android 11

EDIT: all good after switching to a stable version.

Tested on Oneplus 7 Pro with xml and gca provided by SixArmedPriest and when I load the xml file it hangs.
I'm on a rooted phone with DOT Os 5.2. I tested it with and without the cam enhance module for magisk.

Im on the S20 Ultra and using Gcam-8.1.101.build-V6.2.211013.2159_ruler.apk and I am having some issues with reds turning purple when using the telescopic camera and HDR activated. I see some whites becoming blueish as well.

Is anyone else having this issue? And how have you resolved it

I don't know why, but I got black spots in the most bright spots like the image. I use a S10+ exynos (yes I know). But the rest works. Does anyone faced this issue?

Thanks - build Gcam-8.1.101.build-V6.2.211013.2159_ruler.apk is the one I have working. But when I go to the link you provided and click on the configs link there is only two phones available.

Which is why I was wondering if there was another source for a working config for Galaxy S10+?

I'm experiencing the same thing on my S21 Ultra Exynos. Happens on BSG versions as well. The spots are either black or greenish/yellowish. I'm frustrated because nothing seems to fix this problem.

@Arnova8G2 Hi, for some reason last version with working "Google Lens Suggestions" was GCam_5beta8.200125.0050build-7.2.018.
Starting from GCam_5beta9.200130.0245build-7.3.018 and to the latest stable version this feature is not working anymore even though "Google Lens Suggestions" option is checked in settings.
Was it removed on purpose? It was quite useful to copy email addresses and read qr codes.
Thanks

OnePlus 7 Pro, Android 10

    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:

    - 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>

    Stable version

    Update from the latest version of BSG and TlnNeun
    - Add a toggle to choose Portrait Mode or Lens Blur
