How to use .xml files
  • .xml files must be stored in [Internal Storage]/GCam/Configs7 (create the folder if it doesn't exists)
  • To load an .xml double tap the area between the capture button and gallery, select the .xml and click Restore or Update (depending on GCam used)
  • If there are no .xml files, make sure the folder is created and the name is correct.

How to enable auxiliary cameras [magisk required] [updated for 7.3 Arnova]
  • Download the following magisk module and install it: [Download link]
  • Reboot your phone. If the app still crashes when you select an auxiliary camera do another reboot.
  • Auxiliary cameras are supported only by Urnyx05 GCam at this time.
  • Auxiliary cameras are not supported in cloned .apks.

Cloned .apks
  • Cloned .apks are needed in order to use two different versions of the same app
  • You can also use cloned .apks to have the same app version with different settings (.xmls). One for day and one for night.
  • Auxiliary cameras are not supported in cloned .apks.

Just installed the Urnyx05 with Nameless.xml, and it seems to be working pretty well. Some features don't work, but that's to be expected haha.

Neither Arnova8G2 7.3 nor Urnyx05 7.2 is working for me.
I get a crash with Arnova8G2 7.3 as soon as I open up the camera app.
With Urnyx05 7.2, I get a crash after I press the shutter button for both XML files.

can someone educate on auxiliary cameras? if enabled, do they improve quality? are they enabled by default in the stock cam app? Thanks!

If you install the magisk module it will allow you to use ultrawide and telephoto cameras in google camera. Read the first post for more info.

Does anyone else have the same zoom crash problem I'm having when locked focused on an object? This is only for the Urnyx05 version, not the Arnova8G2 version. I detail the problem in the post linked below:
Problem: GCam crashes when the focused point/circle moves outside of the screen during the process of zooming.

If you can't repeat the problem on your phone, can you please look at my signature and tell me how your phone is different? Thank you.

Did you try it on stock rom as well? OmniRom might cause it to crash.

    These are the best ones at the moment. Still recommend Urnyx with Nameless or Pixel4 xml. Arnova 7.3 is still a beta and lots of bugs with missing options (aux cam, astro toggle etc)

    Having a bit of trouble getting the ability to use the different lenses in my 7T.

    Rooted with Magisk, OOS 10.0.9.HD65AA

    Installed Magisk modules:
    • App Systemizer
    • Busybox
    • Energized Protection
    • GCam Enable Aux All Device
    • liboemcrypto disabler
    • Systemless Hosts

    I installed GCam 7.3.018 by Urnyx05. I applied the Pixel4_v.5 Urnyx7.3.xml file a bunch of times. GCam restarts, but the camera switch button remain white and only flips between back and front.

    Any ideas what I'm missing to enable the other two back lenses?

    Update: After installing the Telegram app, there are additional instructions to enable the addition lenses within GCam. Settings / Advanced / Auxiliary camera. Within there, enable the other cameras. That information was no where to be found on the GCam for OnePlus 7 Family page.

    Using OP7T, Urnyx and the nameless v7 XML, only feature I've found not working is the slow Mo, everything else seems fantastic, and much better than stock

    What is the difference between the xmls for the latest arnova?

    Each .xml is created by members of the community following their taste or trying to emulate other devices (Pixel 4 for example).
    You should test them and pick the one you like best.

    For example, I consider the nameless .xml (which I just added) to be top notch.

    Just switched from urnyx 7.2/nameless to the current recommended arnova/sap, and seem to have lost the other cameras (magisk module installed). Any ideas here? Tried clearing storage/reinstalling arnova. Still works in urnyx

    That said, didn't realize motion photos is listed as not working. It switched to auto when disabling hdr, and seems to work here though

    I replaced the magisk module with another one compatible with Arnova 7.3. The new one should work just fine.
    Btw, you should use HDR+ Enhanced. That's like the best feature gcam has.
