A working Gcam for our phone, because we deserve it:
(always use this version: org.codeaurora.snapcam)

Compared to the stock camera, the shutter is faster and the colours are somewhat more vibrant. Haven't had a chance to compare night modes yet.

If you have an XML setup to recommend, please do share.

Nice thanks! Do you know how to set it as the default camera app? I tried disabling the op camera app, but now I cannot open my camera from my lock screen.

Is there any gcam mod that allows to record 8k and 4k/120fps? BTW I tried many mods and I did not find any with all functionalities available: all cameras, motion photos, night sight etc. If motion photos available, only single camera can be used, etc.

I also don't understand why they decided to remove all languages other than English from all mods. Original Gcam supports many languages.

Not at the moment, as far as I know but our device's release happend less than a month ago so the development is still in early stages. BSG is quite fast at updates so hopefully it'll eventually happen.

I guess that way is much more simple and if that's the trade-off for faster updates than I'm very happy with it.

What is much more simple? Additional languages strings are original from Google, no need to touch them. Of course, additional custom settings will appear in English only, because they won't be translated.

Additional effort required to remove all translations. So it's opposite to what you are saying

So IOTW, the snapcam is preferred for the 9 Pro then?

I think so, yes. I read Snapcam is recommended for phones from BBK-owned smartphone brands. However keep in mind a brand could "block" the access to auxiliary cameras at any moment. For example Samsung blocked access to the selfie camera, so in GCam ports, the selfie camera just does not work on Samsungs... Not sure if they have fixed it, but I know it's been a problem for Samsung users.

Also, can anybody find a way to track that specific release somehow incase it updates? Thank you!

I don't think there's a way to track it, just gotta visit the celsoazevedo page from time to time. Although most updates are minor, so don't worry about that.

Edit - what is an XML setup btw? 🤔

You can download a XML file, and import it to the GCam app. It will import settings from the file, so if you find a XML file for the 9 Pro BSG Gcam port, just download it and import it via the app. Also you can create XML files yourself, and share them if you want as well. :)

Some manufacturers have even coded things to prevent third-party cameras from using the phone's full camera resolution capabilities. On OnePlus devices they could be locked to 12 MP, even the main camera.

Here is the updated files from the site that does all the gcam mods https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-bsg/
There is no configs anyone has done yet here is my saved one with my settings if you wish to try it, only changed lens device settings and interface settings, nothing modified for actual photo adjustments.
To apply go into setting and look for load xml then pick it from the file picker

What's the difference between the org.codeaurora.snapcam and the com.google.android.GoogleCameraEng apks?

Was wondering the same... Thank you.

Nothing, really. They just have different signatures. If you find that certain additional modules (Magisk flashables that add or enhance a device's camera functions) don't work, try the other. Some devices have a camera version signed specifically for them (ie, Samsung phones) because of this. It just happens that the snapcam signature seems to work best on our device.

I'm having some nasty issues with a strong lilac purple pink RAW files from Gcam recently. It makes it unusable. It worked fine before but suddenly this problem started happening, perhaps it came after a system update. :/

I tried this and the colors were way to bright and inaccurate

    Arcide OP9P v2 XML for LMC 8.4 R9 GCam

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    - Download the APK from the quoted post, if you don't have it already (always use the snapcam version):
    - Load configs by double-tapping the black area around the shutter button (location is Internal Storage\LMC8.4)

    CHANGELOG:
    - Fixed shasta bracketing
    - Increased max ISO from 4000 to 5600
    - Increased large radius sharpness, decreased small radius sharpness
    - Reduced luma denoise for more natural fine grain instead of worm noise and smudged textures
    - Reduced chroma denoise for better colors
    - Disabled AutoWB correction on main lens, increased saturation
    - Increased dehaze and dehaze black (contrast) for better depth in photos
    - Changed tone curve and HDR settings, increased exposition ratio

    NOTES:
    - 4K video doesn't work on OOS 12
    - 60fps works only on ultrawide lens
    Arcide OP9P v3 XML for LMC 8.4 R9 GCam

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    - Download the APK from the quoted post, if you don't have it already (always use the snapcam version)
    - Place the XML in Internal Storage\LMC8.4, load it by double-tapping the black area around the shutter button

    CHANGELOG:
    - Reworked the entire config
    - Used merge 3 method instead of merge 1 for main and ultrawide lens (better for human subjects, much cleaner shadows especially in dynamic lighting, less moire artifacts - but more motion artifacts and a bit less micro-fine details)
    - Added Pro-mode switch in the top right for activating manual focus, ISO and shutter speed

    NOTES:
    - 4K video doesn't work on OOS 12
    - 60fps works only on ultrawide lens

    Just wanted to say THANKS for making this Gcam port. I installed it on my Oneplus 9, and it works great!

    I started with your config for the OP9P, but after a bit of tweaking, ended up just building one from scratch that works very well on this phone. I'm still on OOS12, and am planning on moving to a custom ROM, but wanted to make sure I had a cam that was at least as good as the factory OOS cam.

    After taking like 100 photos today (of the same subject) with both the snapcam and the OOS cam, and then tweaking the settings, I think I have a very good profile for the OP9 that I feel is better than the OOS cam now. The only thing I haven't had a chance to tune is night-shot, so I'll have to get to that one tomorrow.

    this profile should also work on the OP9P, tho the main camera sensor is different on the pro (Sony 789 vs. 689 on the non-pro), so YMMV.

    under OOS 11 I had a Gcam mod from BSG developer. it crashes when starting on oos 12. now I was looking for a current GCAM version that works under oos 12 with both lenses. have not tried your config here because its made for 9 pro. I thought that it didn't work without problems on my non pro OP9.
    Should work fine with OP9 too, just you can't use the 3.3x obviously because there's no tele lens.

    I'm a little confused, as mods shouldn't crash just like that after you've updated. Is it on main lens or maybe aux? Maybe post a screen recording. Try clearing data from the app and see if it works without the xml, to check if that's the issue.

    Thanks, this looks much better on my 9. I usually find GCam to be blurrier than OOS cam but this is great.

    What about OnePlus 9r


    Is this the OnePlus 9R forums?
