@Zamudek I noticed you mentioned "MGC_8.1.101_A9_GVt_ENG". For Samsung phones you usually need to use one of the Samsung package names:
  • com.samsung.android.ruler
  • com.samsung.android.scan3d
  • com.samsung.android.biometrics.service
And so on. "MGC_8.1.101_A9_GVt_ENG" uses "com.google.android.GoogleCameraEng"... not for Samsung.

So if we look at the latest stable from BSG (MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV1zfix), it would be the 4th or 5th apks:

This is true with any modder, by the way. The version from Greatness was mentioned above, but they are using the "biometrics" package (com.samsung.android.biometrics.service), not the others.

You can use this apk, On mod settings change it to Samsung, on interface, use Pixel 4a and up

On additional module settings, select back lense 1.0, change it to level 3 and shasta factor on default.

P.s. there's already a lot of light pollution in our area
Change what to level 3?
Should I change interface to pixel 4a in back lense settings as well?

Tried "GCam8.2.204_Greatness.210627.2155Release_Snap.apk" with the a52 config file and it won't take pictures at 1x zoom. It'll take pictures on any other zoom. And even video is fine.

yes i want to install g cam on my device Samsung a52 4g
For you and those of you like me who didn't know how to do this, just download the latest one from this list:

When clicking on one of the build, it will take you to a download page with multiple choices, take one that has the samsung name in it (ex.: MGC_8.5.300_A10_V9_ruler.apk (com.samsung.android.ruler))

Download and install the APK.

Almost all the features are working for me except 4K video (it crashes) and slow motion video (it crashes).

But the camera quality is miles better than the AOSP one.

Hope this helps.

    Hello guys

    The BSG versions of the Gcam mod works really stable on our device. But there aren't optimized configs available, so the colors do need to get a little bit tweaked. In the newest versions, it's possible to save and load configs. So it would be nice if we can test some settings out. I also tried it, so you can use it as a base if you want.
    Some notes about the changes:
    1. SlibP Custom lib
    2. some settings in "Additional modules settings" (much more to try out there, that's the main place to play around)
    3. activated instantaneous hdr+ enhanced (hdr+ enhanced but without loading time [ZSL], but viewfinder lags a little bit while rendering the final image because of the phone's performance)
    Location to place config file: \Download\MGC.8.1.101_Configs
    Used Gcam version: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-bsg/f/dl16/

    There is also a thread for the A52 5G. Because both devices use the same cameras, it would be great to have one place to tinker.

    Hey! Those are some really nice shots. Can you please share your apk file and xml here? Or at least upload them somewhere and try to link them here if you can. I've spent 2 days trying to work a config out and I am unable to get astrophotography working.
