The last change log, and the last time the OP was updated was November of 2014. So it seems obvious to me it's for a much older Android version... Good job @kevinrocksman, I appreciate the work you put into this.

Hi all,
I am looking for the note 4 N910G camera mod zip file for 4.4.4 kitkat.
I searched entire thread but either some files are for other models and did not find the mod zip file.
Link on OP and the URL given is showing 404 error. Sent PM to kevin, but seems he is away.
Will anyone who has the mod zip file for N910G 4.4.4 share it with me or a download link.
It will be highly appreciated.
THX

Is it possible to remove the time limit all together? I have a 2TB OTG stick, I want to film a documentary in a national park, I'd rather not stitch 50 videos together to complete my project.

    O.k. where is the download link at for the snapdragon v9.3 at? Thanks In advance!!!

    Sent from my SM-N910T using XDA Free mobile app

    many thanks for your work my friend :eek: I for one is sad to hear yet another dev walking away from xda, and yes this site is slowly going in the wrong direction :(

    I'm not walking away, Im just taking a break and focusing more on what I like instead of being under pressure by people always wanting more and people wanting to accuse me of stealing work. Been doing this for a long time and spending alot of my free time on this and I need to focus more on myself than everyone else. I care to much for everyone else more than myself and that is why I do what I do but after the bulls*t I have had to endure by a single user over the last couple days I see some people like to accuse even when they don't know the whole story and that really makes me not care as much about making others happy. But I will still be around to help out

    Hey guys, this serious need for help is directed at tmobile (n910T and n910T# !) note4 users who successfully were able to utilize these files (OR WHO KNOW HOW TO REVERT TO STOCK CAMERA)

    I went through the abovementined steps directed at Slash, since he mentioned the attempt is with with a tmobile note 4 (sm-n910t) and was unsuccessful, i appear to be able to install any version (i tried this with 9.3, then 9, then 3, then back with version 9.3) but when the camera app appears (showing the various icon types) it will always try to open then say "Unfortunately Camera Has Stopped". It was upon this result I would repeat the steps mentioned but with a different "Version" file for the mod, to no avail. I tried the Flashable versions ( I have teamwin recovery installed) but they would always Fail upon the "Flash to Intstall Zip" zip, which resulted in the lack of any camera app at all.

    .


    There have been so many updates to the system since I have put this out that I haven't had time to look at this nor change the instructions. All apks used to be under system/apps but now with the newer android versions they are under system/apps/xxxxxx, this still works for some but not for others. If I had some free time I could probably update this to make it work for everyone but dealing with school and some other things I cant atm but I thought that someone used this mod and did some work on it in another forum one time (because i remember them mentioning me) but if I get some free time I will update this, I just need to know if there is really a interest in it anymore.

    I am no longer working on this mod for the time being, I am not going to be called out and ridiculed when in all reality 4.4.4 is not the same as 4.4.2 or ICS. What someone found out 3 years ago does not in its entirety apply to the present day and I even had a admin tell me that. I was accused for taking someone's "idea" on a completely different device back in the day for the spen sounds when in all reality I was the one that built the aroma and the install script for installing multiple things at once instead of copying over the files. I have been a entity of xda since 2008 and being that I am a combat vet being called out and ridiculed continuous times has driven my anxiety level above its threshold. There is 1 person you can thank for this, if you are interested in finding out who just search in my threads. Once I find out how to make slow mo efficiently 1080p without breaking anything I will be back. For now enjoy what I have put out there and god bless. I will still be around for help though and will still help accordingly.
