On a project fi v35, the GoogleCamera_5.2.025-Final_fu24-18c1.apk was too laggy for me. I ran 01.MGC_6.1.021_G7_test_v1.apk and was able to snap pictures with front and rear, but the 02.MGC_6.1.021_BSG_Arnova_TlnNeun_04.02.19.12.54.apk crashed on launch.

Will post a logcat once i can.

Have you properly applied the XML setting (step 8) after installing MGC_6.1.021_BSG_Arnova_TlnNeun_04.02.19.12.54.apk?
Lag in viewfinder is cause by overloaded buffer in this version which is easily fixable either by applying XML as shown or by enabling the Buffer Fix switch in app Settings.

You are welcome!

N.B.: If you want to have it working you need to follow the guide up to the letter, so whenever you get bored and want to try again just uninstall the current GCAM, restart your phone and start again.
Do not forgot to take again 2 pictures after installing 1st apk and to properly import the XML settings after installing the 2nd apk and starting it for the first time.

I have LG V30+ H930DS, and I use this two Gcams.
One is 90% wokring (maybe panorama doesnt work) but all other is perfect (wide, noraml, portrait front/back, HDR+, SlowMotion) and its fast. (To chagne between lenses, just hold switch button, it will redirect to settings, after you close settings lense will be changed.
The other one I use only for NightSight. This camera has problem with selfies, they have green tint. It also have Wide/Normal switch, ( just chage between selfie and back camera, and each time ju go back to main camera it will be diferent lense)

I'm satisfied with this phone, for me everything is perfect, but i found LG V35 for good price and I would like to konw if there is somebody with V35 who will try this two Gcams, and tell me does they work properly, or if there is some others which works good, because i wouldn't change V30 for v35 if I can't have good working Gcam.

where is step 8 described? I can find no reference on how to apply this xml config.

Step 8 originates from really old installation guide.
Now you need only to install the camera apk and import the xml settings file.
Where/how to extract the xml file and how to import it afterwards you can check here

Thanks. I must have been downloading wrong version, since double clicking didn't work. Tried again this morning and it works now.

After applying the xml fix to v6.1 camera, it works, but I wouldn't call it "good". It's super annoyingly slow to make pictures. 5.2 also lags substantially, and won't load xml settings. So far, lg camera is hands down better

so... MGC_6.2.030_MI9SE_V4_plus2.apk has been the only version for me that has worked without issue...problem is pictures are not clear. although the viewfinder is fixed with the buffer fix toggle, when taking photos its not quick therefore the pictures blur slightly.

do you all encounter the same and if not which version and configuration has given you a fast shutter?

Here is what I posted on arnova's thread with the suggestion of another member.

thanks...i Gcam_6.2.030_Advanced_BF_V2.2.1.190822.1145.apk works for my V35 as it seems BF means it has the buffer fix built in. shame it doesn't allow for zero shutter lag as for phones that don't need a buffer fix. as the OEM camera can take photos super fast.

here are my settings for my LG V35 on Pie on Gcam_6.2.030_Advanced_BF_V2.2.1.190822.1145.apk
back camera: Pixel 3 XL
front camera: Nexus 6P
AWBGains Mod: OFF, was causing GREEN photos with it on
RAW FORMAT: RAW_SENSOR
Image Format: JPEG (if i set YUV_420_488 GCam crashes)
P3 wide-color, Wide Color gamut

playing around with Custom Lib Repo by cstark and with Eszdman v2.6 beta 2

image quality is awesome, and no blur upon shutter snap as with other GCams! Thanks @arnova!

Hey everyone, I'm currently exploring some gcam options and I found that the latest Arnova Gcam works great with no lag (it does take a bit longer to capture a photo than it does on my sd820 device) but sadly it doesn't offer wide camera mode.
Now, there is the cstark camera and wide angle mode actually does work, but using the camera is impossible because the preview (you know, the thing you see on your screen before you take a picture) changes once every 5 seconds or something. I tried importing some xmls and that sped it up just a bit but not by much.

Is there some working version that was tested for v35? My v35 is Korean model

    Well for 5-th branch hands down the best one is GoogleCamera_5.2.025-Final_fu24-18c1.apk and can be found here

    Regarding 6-th latest Gcam_6.1.021_Advanced_V1.7.190716.1800 by Arnova works flawlessly with this XML config.

    Nope, after installing the 02 apk, it crashes on launch so I don't get the chance. Tweaked settings w/ the other one and got it working at least, thanks!
