I came here looking for the same thing, ha! I had Google Camera (Gcam) working perfectly on my S21 and would often switch over to use that to take Portraits etc.

If anyone is able to point out a version that works would be so helpful. Cheers!

So far the closest I've gotten is BSG 8.1 but it still isn't great, ids 0,1,2,52 and I had to force the hardware levels from Level 3 to Full or Level 3 + for the main and front cam. HDR+ crashes main and front but with the level change it at least works without HDR+. Tele and UW seem to work fine though. Maybe someone else can play around with it to see why HDR+ crashes.

Do you have the Base S22 Snapdragon or Ultra?

Can I please ask which config xml did you use for BSG 8.1?
Also there are about 6 apks for GSB 8.1 - which one did you download? - https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-bsg/f/dl75/

I installed the _ruler. APK

Was trying to take a video but when it zoom, the telephoto zoom lens don't seem to work- I wonder if it's to do with mine is S22 base and Ultra maybe has different cameras?

When trying UW or portrait or night sight etc it seems like taking the picture but force closes it with notification "Photo saving finished" but there are no photos in gallery..

So far only able to take regular photos with the primary lens even though all 3 lens options are showing up in the camera app

Here's my working config for all 3 rear lenses using LMC8.4R8.


Create an LMC8.4 folder in root storage and copy the xml there. After installing the Samsung specific port from the link above, open and accept permissions and immediately toggle to video mode and load the config. Good to go.

Hi, may I ask where is the "load config" function? I can only see the following:
1. Remove config name
2. Save config
3. Import ready-made config

If I choose (3) the app will just restart itself. There is no config selection.

After you open the app and switch over to video mode, double tap the space between the record and gallery buttons and it will pop up the config loader. As long as you've already copied the xml to the new LMC8.4 folder in root storage before opening the app, it'll appear there.

I am using US (Tmobile) Snapdragon S22 base. Got the ruler apk and the first one at top of list on link. Both crash immediately upon opening repeatedly. Cannot get to stay open long enough to get into settings. Any ideas?

I have S901E also with Snapdragon, and the version that worked for me was "LMC8.4_R8_samsung.apk"

    You need to immediately switch to video mode to stop it from crashing out. Then you can load the xml settings and it should work afterwards.

    I can't seem to install "LMC8.4_R8_samsung.apk"

    After tapping on the .apk, rather than the usual "do you want to install" instead I get "do you want to update"
    If I press OK, it says "App not installed as package appears to be invalid"

    Strange as I can't find LMC or Gcam installed elsewhere.

    Out of curiosity, I tried installing "LMC8.4_R8_snapcam.apk" which installed fine.
    Camera mode will crash, can quickly get into video mode.
    Tried loading the config file but then it will start crashing as soon as it loads.

    Any ideas of how I can get "LMC8.4_R8_samsung.apk" installed?
    Guessing you may have Samsung's Quick Measure app installed, since LMC uses its package name to access the aux lenses. If so, uninstall that app first and then try installing the LMC version for Samsungs again.

    Hey guys, I don't have this particular phone but did play around with my cousin's to generate the following config. As the previous people have noted, the S22 base model's freezing issue is resolved by using the RAW16 setting, merge method 0, API setting to Full, and viewfinder to YUV.

    Here is the config I came up with for AGC v8 GCam 8.4.

    Steps to setup:
    - Download and install the APK and give it the requested permissions (may need to uninstall previous GCam builds if using same Scan3D package name)
    - Download the zipped config and extract the zip file
    - Open the app and load the config (swipe down > load configs)
    - Import lib (go to settings > libraries > copy third party lib to app)
    - Load lib (settings > libraries > load custom library)

    Tried installing few mod ones for S22 Ultra but kept on crashing.
    If anyone have a gcam working for S22 or s22+ Snapdragon, please share!
