all versions in this topic not working and gives me a crash when starting the app .. any help?

GoogleCamera-Pixel2Mod-Arnova8G2-V7beta-test-9
OP6_N6_GoogleCamera-Pixel2Mod-Arnova8G2-V8.2
GCam-5.1.018-Pixel2Mod-Arnova8G2-V8.3b1

all of these are not working

OP6_N6_GoogleCamera-Pixel2Mod-Arnova8G2-V8.2 works on miui9/10 without portrait mode, but not custom ROMs, I wonder why ...
it would be excellent to have a port of Xiaomi's official pocophone cam for custom ROMs but I don't know how to port it.

Is the Gcam working for GSI roms. Is this thread related to that or just for stock ROM. ?


Because Gcam Does not work at all in most GSI roms. I am on pixel experience. Could not get a single one to start. Tried 10-15 different apks.

Did you tried the app given here?

Im thinking about buying this device but I really want that google camera but so far im having no hopes on its camera that it will soon work completely.

Hi, I've also been testing many different versions, but strangely most apk's that other users reported were working for them didn't for me. However, as I was testing apk's, I found this one that worked for me (w/o portrait mode or slow motion) but HDR, HDR+, 360°, etc working, (also both front & back cameras work)

I can't find the exact link right now if I find it I'll add it, but the name of the file is :

GS9_GCamera_Mod_v.5.1.20_R4X.apk

PS : If the app says that the front camera is 5Mpx, that's normal. Xiaomi is implementing "pixel binning" that essentially uses 4 physical pixels to produce one pixel for the image. They must be doing this at a low level and not just in the camera app, wich is why all apps see the front sensor as 5mpx)

Just installation and opening the app does not count as working.
In the APK you mentioned, I can't enable important functionality such as
- quality jpg 100%
- HDR super high

This is issue with mostapk. Without fine tuning these, gcam won't yield good results

    I'm not promising anything, but I got my Poco yesterday.
    Waiting for it to be unlocked.

    *If* I get a chance, I'll look into this, but I've not played with Google camera decompiling so would have to start from scratch. Anyone know any decent walkthroughs or info to get a head start?

    There's a few other things I'd like to look at working on instead. Gsi/aosp seems a much higher priority as I'm already hating miui.

    Time is a bit of premium lately, so going to have to do what I can when I can..
    If I can assist others with more time it might work out better

    Arnova released a new version that seems to work with my poco running nos+8.11.15 firmware. Can anybody else confirm? Video focus seems to be better too.https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/GCam_Pixel3Mod_1.3beta_build.6.1.0210.apk
    So far what's not working:
    Slow mo
    Motion photo
    Photobooth
    Sometimes if you manually focus and no activity for 5 seconds in the viewfinder you can't take any photos anymore and you need to force close the app
