Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra

Is it possible to rename the cameral modules and give them custom names?

Got V11 working on S23U by adapting some of Acride's settings from S22U on 8.6. Getting beautiful true to life color reproduction with all standard settings , loving it very much so far. However the camera modules are showing with the IDs auto assigned to them, and in the order in which the app discovers them. So on the S23U my modules are 0.6, 1.0, 10.3, and 3.0. Would love to be able to rename them 0.6x, 1x, 3x, 10x and get them to display in this order. Other gcam ports seem to have this ability but I can't figure out how to do it on BCG.

I have been trying to get the app working for weeks but I haven't been able to find a solution for fixing the problem of Samsung S21 FE snapdragon version.

I checked with camera2api and my device has level 3 and RAW support so it should work (log attached) but it doesn't.

I tried testing with the latest apk for Samsung MGC_8.7.250_A11_V13_scan3d

after installation the cameras 0.5 1.0 and 2.9 show up on viewfinder, first two work for about 2 seconds then freeze, choosing 2.9 crashes the app.

I then tried changing several session IDs from the spreadsheet available on the Telegram channel (I used ones on the generic list as IDs for my samsung device wasn't there)

here are the results:

ID 262144, 61504, 61444, 61448 = viewfinder works for 3 seconds then freezes

ID 61456, 61442, 32772, 32770, 33041, 40962 = viewfinder black, then app crashes after a second

can you please tell me what else can I try? or how to find the proper ID?
I appreciate your help🙏

Small additions to previous versions... (by request in private group).

8.7.250 V15a:

expanded range of input values(from 65 to 255) of "Advanced settings" menu items: "Lower range HDR+", "Upper range HDR+", "Brightness intensity"

8.6.263 V14a:

expanded the range of input value(from 65 to 255) of the "Advanced Settings" menu items: "Range HDR+" - (Lower, Upper), "Downsample factor" - (Volume 1), "Texture" - (Noise scale term, Noise scale divider, Range RG factors)

you can use all of these values, both positive and negative, and 0.
TextEdit automatically rounds the entered value to the nearest value from the table.

I dont know if anyone else gets the camera crashing when you select selfie or camera, in a zte nubia z50 ultra, is it because is not supported? huh ```
[ 05-07 12:39:15.579 20147:20147 E/WARNING!!! ]
Cannot start the Google Camera on an unsupported device``` that's probably the reason? I had downloaded the snapdragon version

    Mod Google Camera
    The latest version by B-S-G

    This post is about the mods created by @B-S-G. Here you will find instructions on how to use this port and how to configure it properly for yourself.
    Telegram public group BSG.

    - The Camera 2 API must be activated on your device.
    - Most versions run only on Snapdragon SoC, but some run on MKT processors (will be added soon), Kirin and Exynos (we will also work on this processor;
    - 64-bit ROM is a must;
    - Doesn't work on phones without RAW support (for example, some Sony, Samsung and Huawei devices);
    - Newer versions (8.x) can only work on newer versions of Android. Version 8.x will run on Android 9+.

    Additional Information:
    - Now Moding is my full time job, so I will try to make support for all devices;
    - I will try to make a unique mod with many innovations;
    - I want to return the built-in gallery and drawing with light from GCam 7.2;
    - I want to add the ability to use Saber for all modules, including Samsung modules;
    - I want to automate the choice of configurations depending on the conditions;

    What version should you use:
    We are trying to make an all-purpose application for many devices, so it is recommended to install the latest version. Google table of supported devices. P.S. This table is based on the information from members of the private group. If there is no your device it DOES NOT MEAN that it will not work on your device.

    F.A.Q. - Frequently asked Questions said:
    FAQs and troubleshooting by Celsoazevedo
    0. If your camera starts, but the video finder freezes or black, then you need to change the Preview Format to YUV (for Level 3).

    1. If your front camera is blurry, change the HDR model to Pixel 3XL.

    2. If your front camera doesn't work, change the Preview format to YUV.

    p.s. will be replenished with the development of the mod ...
    - Added additional lenses, they are still in development, but we decided to share with you an intermediate version. We are now working on dividing the libpatcher into additional modules.
    - Added autodetection of modules that support Raw format.
    - Added an item to enable zoom instead of additional modules if you do not need them.

    Known Issues:
    - All the problems of Sony smartphones, it is recommended that they skip this update and wait for fixes for them.
    - Departure of additional modules for Redmi Note 9, we will also fix it soon.

    P.S. We made many versions with different signatures. If additional modules do not work for you, then you need to install the version signed org.codeaurora.snapcam or com.google.android.GoogleCameraEng. If you have Samsung, it is recommended to install the version with Samsung signatures.

    P.S.S. There is no need to report problems with add-on modules on some devices, we know about them and almost all problems have already been fixed in future updates.
    - Added new items to the RAM patcher.
    - Improved the resolution of the GL preview video finder, by default 1280 (you can also increase it even further in the developer settings - camera.cuttle.glpreview_max_res, but it will use the closest one available to you)
    - Added new Merge method (3 - Spatial RGB)
    - Fixed the problem of the video finder freezing in the dark, turn on the GL preview (the problem is known on LG smartphones and OnePlus Nord n10).
    - Disabled RAW image compression.
    - Added a test version of the libpatcher (Eszdman), at the moment there are not all the settings that we wanted to add in it (please do not ask us about the libpatcher settings, we will make a complete instruction when it is added completely).
    - Added selection of Merge Saber (I advise you to choose the value for your device).
    - Added reboots for applying settings and reduced their number during the porting of libpatcher.
    - Added selection of profiles for Slow motion.
    - The application has become more automated and optimized.
    - Fully optimized mod, the application should work faster.
    - Added tracking focus to video mode (needs a lot of resources, can slow down).
    - Finally all the problems of the Google Pixel have been fixed (all models, everything works without restrictions. Select "Pixel" in the settings and your model).
    - Fixed crash of frontal video for some devices that do not support 1080p (can be changed in the settings).
    - Temporarily added an item to activate astro as in Pixel devices.
    - Added support for Redmi Note 8 Pro (MTK) smartphone.
    - Fixed interface freezing issue for Xioami Mi Note 10 (when the interface was slow to respond).
    - Fixed problems with the Xiaomi Mi 9se interface freezing (when many additional functions were connected: Auto NS, focus tracking).
    - Fixed video crash on some devices.
    - Added some fixes for Sony smartphones, purple circles should disappear in night mode.
    - Fixed problems with Auto NS and night mode for Realme XT (when the snapshot was not saved and the processing was frozen).

    - Improved color and noise quality.

    New public version
    ⚠️ Development disruption:

    BSG lives in the eastern part of Ukraine and is affected by the Russian invasion. He lives close to frontline and the area was without electricity for a few days. This update contains work made before the war started.

    If you see a slow down in development and less updates, this is why. The outages makes it hard to work on GCam and connect to the internet, and with the war there are probably more important things to focus on.

    📋 List of changes:

    🇺🇸 BSG public version changelog (8.4.400 from 03/04/2022):

    - Added number of frames in night mode
    - Added visualization of the process of saving photos in the top curtain
    - Fixed bugs in the work of the modification on some devices.

    🇷🇺 Ченджлог публичной версии от BSG (8.4.400 от 4.03.2022):
    - добавлено кол-во кадров в ночной режим
    - добавлена визуализация процесса сохранения фото в верхней шторки
    - исправлены ошибки в работе модификации на некоторых девайсах.

    Hello everyone please help me. I'm in the download page of the latest BSG apk but there seems to be many choices ending with snap, eng, mgc, ruler, scan3d and there's no description about their differences. What are the names all about?
