For me I notice the image texture of two apks on 1st March is not at all as sharp as the old one on 30 Dec no matter what seetings applied, I guess that's due to denoise algorithm changes? Noise is significantly reduced in 1st March versions though, especially for darker area of the image. I would go with both versions for now in different scenes and wait for future versions test. Cheers again for Arnova8G2 for what possibilities he brought!

Mine is not laggy at all. When I remove the previous versions I force close app, clear cache, clear data then uninstall. I also clear data cache in app installer in system app, for the close camera. I also clear memory from device manager. shut the device off and enter in boot mode to wipe cache partition. Once all that is done then I re-install clean version and set my settings.

I have done the big mistake of uninstalling multiple versions of gcam without clearing cache prior to the uninstall.

What should I do now?

I cannot install a new version I want to...

That's odd, as it shouldn't matter as long as you've uninstalled all Gcams. Are you sure you uninstalled ALL your gcam clones?

Help changing the package name

Hello devs,
Thank you so much for your work on Gcam.
I know probably this is not something to ask about here, but I don't know a better thread for that matter.

I just wanted to ask you what method do you use to change the package name of Google Camera, if possible maybe post a guide about it

I own Nexus 6P running stock android 8.1 and I'm not able modify the ROM/unlock the bootloader as I currently have important data that I will not be able to restore after the inevitable unlocking wipe

As Camera NX is probably dead I'm trying to find an alternative gcam usable on my 6P,
I tried many versions but obviously it's not working properly for Nexus or conflicts with existing Google Camera,
I've been trying to modify Arnova's gcam package name to not conflict with the stock Google Camera, I tried Apk editor, App cloner, and even tried a bit with apk tool using an outdated guide on XDA but didn't generate a package that's installable/working.
My best results so far crash on start.

So I was hoping you can help me with that issue

TL;DR
I was wondering if you can tell me what steps are used to successfully change the gcam's package name without messing up the app.

That might be your problem. Though I don't know for sure as I don't have the Pixel.

You can take the new apk, use appcloner (https://appcloner.app/) to clone it, and install that clone.

I will try this and report, thanks.

It works!
Thanks a lot.
The modded camera app I used completed install. It force closed a time or two but I think I solved ghetto issue by accepting location access for the app.

Edit 2: granting location access didn't solve the force close issue.
It seems that the app closes when I am too much shaking the phone while opening the app. Don't know.

Note 9 - Thanks for another big update

@Arnova8G2
Thank you so much for another big update and the app works with most new features on my Snapdragon Note 9. I have been testing all the apps as soon as they are out and this is the only app that is working perfectly after beta 6. Using the app from a week now and here is my report:
1. Slow motion - this is the only feature that is still not working (same with beta 6)
2. The app performance overall is around 0.5 seconds slower than beta 6 app.
3. Aperture control works perfectly (exif verified). I wish there is an option to add the toggle button. With smaller aperture, more details are visible (1/3 slower shutter)
4. New libs are worth experimenting. I noticed some other apps have more lib options and hope to try in the future.
5. All the Samsung Camera APIs I tested worked fine. Some API settings are advanced and some are under Samsung Camera API. I wish all those were under Samsung Camera API.
6. The new menu for version is very nice
7. Thanks for the OIS function toggle
8. Using Sabre toggle - Is this to use sabre camera trigger?
9. Pixel 3 color transform is very helpful toggle

    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>
