Nah.. I'm happy with my 3.2.. maybe you need to install GApps over Pure Nexus to make sure you've got the right libraries otherwise, and you should only have one camera app installed to system at a time.
I have GApps on Pure Nexus and I always uninstall the app before trying a new one.

Hi all,

I installed the latest release of Pure Nexus ROM (january edition) and pure nexus GApps, now the 3.2 Google Camera attached seems to be working fine. With December edition this was an issue.
Hope this helps

@osm0sis Would you mind if I re-build my zip to use the deflating process you mentioned now? (Sorry about the disappearance; I may or may not have accidentally wiped my hard drive...)

Welcome back!

It's the libs in the APK that needed deflating, and I've already got the updated zip uploaded here: https://basketbuild.com/devs/osm0sis/osmods

:)

Video seems fine here with 3.2, which is also the last version the Play Store served to the N5.

Since the OP seems MIA, here's my deflated libs version of gcam3 re-signed to not update, at least until Open GApps and I figure out if there's a better way to limit this and build it in. :good:

The link to basketbuild seems to be down. Any other mirrors?

Working fine now.

If the OP @refi64 wants to rehost my updated zip in the OP attachments with the others, he can go ahead and add to the changelog with credit to @gobonja for the re-signed gcam3 APK, and myself for deflating/storing and zipaligning the libs for proper Nougat system partition installation/execution of the APK. :)

With the latest build of Pure Nexus Rom, the play store installed the new version of camera and now i can't install your package. How can i fix this? Thanks

Is there any latest fix on this or should I just flash this? LOS with GApps installed 4.2 on my N5, now I can't install 3.2 off APKMirror. What should I do?

    Hi. Google Camera 3.2 HDR is working, but the video is shaking. 4.2 doesn't even support HDR on Nexus 5. GC 2.7.008 (or 2.7.010, but cannot install it for some reason) is the best option to go with.
    So if anybody can re-sign to not update, or fix 2.7.010, that would be nice.
    Thanks!

    Edit: BasketBuild seems to have died again, and it's too large for xda because of the deflated libs.. :rolleyes:

    I am not responsible for exploding devices!! Nothing should go wrong, as this doesn't touch anything super-sensitive, but just in case...

    Tested on Pure Nexus w/ Pure Nexus dynamic gapps. This should also work with Open GApps. (And I guess Fake Nexus, though I think the camera works well out-of-the-box on that one...?)

    On (most?) current Nexus 5 Nougat ROMs, attempting to take a photo via Google Camera with HDR+ will just take a regular photo. (The included stock camera doesn't even have an HDR+ option!) The "fix" is to downgrade to an older version (2.8) of Google Camera.

    Problem is, that's kind of annoying. In addition, the Play Store will keep trying to update it to the newest version unless you re-sign. Not good!

    So I made a flashable zip! Just pop it onto your SD card, flash in TWRP, and the proper Google Camera will be installed, signed with a custom key to prevent the Play Store from updating it.

    Enjoy! ;)

    NOTE: This does not fix the video recording issues, only the HDR+ not working. You still need to use stock camera for videos.

    Changelog
    • 11/30/2016 - Fix an extraction failure when the path to the zip has spaces, and fix the progress bar.
    • 11/29/2016 - Fix stupid zip signing mistake.
    • 11/28/2016 - Initial version.

    I resigned 3.2.045 apk so it's not showing in play store.
    It can be installed without flashing in twrp.
