Why bother with flashing and moddings and stuff if you can just install this.
https://labs.xda-developers.com/store/app/download/com.google.android.GoogleCameraMOD

It does not replace the original camera, google photos works, and you can simply uninstall it.
Already answered ! Because you dont get the same version ! With my mod it bring you a another one as playstore give update... that cameramod wont have ! (And new function like burstshoot) ... So what ? [emoji16] ...

I know the mod is sometimes not easy to get but hey ! That' s a port of 7.1 ! Users know it when flashing and take their responsability ...
Dont want to play ? Stay stock and wait ....

Well, then it's not working very well, does it? I've seen various problems in this thread.
As a port ...as we not use same configuration, rom, settings it's never easy to make a perfect mod for all ..ever more when we use ported app from next year system ... I use it since 1 week without any bug but perhaps i'm magician ... [emoji12] [emoji16]

It's silly that ab app won't work because of what version it "thinks" the SDK version is.
If having time tomorrow i'll try to fix some apk for this problem and try to make them work properly using sdk 25 ... My google agenda crash when i try to make a new record ...i will see the problem of google photos also as many users use it ..

I' ve also sent the latest camera grabed under sdk 25 to the xda team but without answer for the moment ... Stay tune [emoji12]

    !!!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.

    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

    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?
