You guy see this... @xdadevelopers: Google Camera v4.2 from the Pixel is now available for Nexus (7.0+) devices! https://t.co/NKcB5AzRRb https://t.co/HhuHl50GUC

Works for me

Thanks man, this works great. Glad to have manual exposure back. Burst mode doesn't work for me either. Tried the flashable zip method, Photos kept crashing, so I'll live without burst mode for now. This camera does seem faster

The camera app has some pretty good additions, burst mode doesn't work here either... I don't find it being much different speed or quality wise than the official camera app though.

So is there a restore zip for this yet? Cuz other Google apps now updated like clocks photos etc and are having issues, how do I go back to how it was before?

You mean I have to reflash my stock rom and all that all over again?
So flash sdk24 and use camera posted few post ago as it can be installed as data app.

This first rules when u play with flashable zip is always make a backup... Twrp or titanium as minimum.... I can make a restore zip but not tonight .. my wife and daughter need me ??... I'll do it tomorrow or in few hours if having time ... Sorry for this situation

Reread op !
Camera posted few post ago work as data app , and this corresponding to the one i give you in flashable, but with my method and sdk edit you got a updated version with real new feature ^^

Am i clear ?


But if it works without an sdk edit then why bother? Download, install and profit. Just saying there's a way to get it and have photos working

    !!!Beware of flashing without proper backup !!!!
    ************************************************************************************************************
    Please please please !!! Make a backup before flashing anything and read complete OP instructions
    Back via TWRP is the best way to save your phone in case of problem !
    I wont take any responsability if you break your camera software and having no backup !
    ************************************************************************************************************
    Actually this mod is incompatible with : (Working on it to solve problem)
    Google PHOTOS => if you use it take your responsability if having bug
    ************************************************************************************************************
    If you scared about flashing camera you can bring a modified version of camera (4.2.010.131250824) here (Credits to XDA Team)
    This wont break your camera as it's renamed CameraMOD.
    There is no support here for this version as here you get 4.2.022.135443920

    Yesterday i was playing with system dump from Pixel XL and seeing how can i manage to use latest Google Camera , and i found a funny tips to make it work :)

    Explain :

    First i' ve extracted the Google camera from system dump , it' s was uninstalable as it because it need SDK 25 and so Nougat 7.1 .

    So i made for my own a flashable zip with the camera (the version of pixel cam is 4.2.010.131250824) and flashed on my actual rom (WETA 9.2)
    after reboot camera disappeard from my drawer (normal^^) .
    Unable to decompil /recompil properly the apk as Apktool doesnt not support Android N for the moment ....

    So i decided to make a small mod in my build.prop :

    Changing SDK version (see line => ro.build.version.sdk)
    On 7.0 we use 24 , 7.1 will be 25 !!! Lets simply edit this and see what happen ?

    Boom !!!! It works as it , new camera appears in drawer and was usable without bugs :)))

    After this i had an update in afternoon from the playstore that give me version 4.2.022.135443920 :)

    Since yesterday i made this change i didnt find any bug on my phone so changing SDK info in build.prop looks ok.

    For those how want to test i made flashable zip to make it easy.

    Step 1 flash camera from 7.1

    LINK REMOVED

    Step 2 use my flashable zip to mod your buildprop to get SDK 25

    LINK REMOVED

    Reboot and profit :) (after reboot you will have an update to do on the playstore for camera :)

    Please report bug if you find some

    I'll make restore of stock camera if need see below

    I just went ahead and tested the stock camera app and the one ported from the Pixel... There are very minor differences - images tend to be slightly cooler with the pixel camera and with a higher iso.

    No This one was directly extracted from Pixel XL system dump :)

    Is this the apk that was found to have malware in it earlier today?
