    Good evening people after lots and lots of hard-work sleepless nights and ofcourse my idiotic selfless effort about which you people would hardly care about i have finally managed to fix camera hal fully :D another good news is that *Its arch independent* that means we can again switch to arm if needed nvm devs who wanna pick the camera hal fixes they are here Camera Fixes the biggest advantage of this is that we can skip camera HAL1 hacks which was one of the greatest security concern of all time and we are 2nd device to skip hal 1 hacks with kitkat camera blobs ;) after legendary sultanXDA and oneplus one yes and fixes were ported from sultan's camera hal only which were up there open-source for me. Seems all my hard-work worked and i am happy to share this news with you guys :)
