Since everyone on the huge OnePlus 3 thread gets tetchy if you raise queries about other phones, I decided to start a discussion thread. What have your experiences with these mods been, and which variations work best for you?

Personally, I've opted for the recent Google Camera Pixel Mods by @Arnova8G2 as they seem to give the best all-round functionality on this phone. I can switch between the various mods and configs without a hitch, and portrait mode works a charm. I find that the main Arnova mod (GCMod5) doesn't seem to work well on this phone in Portrait mode, either failing to take a pic without HDR + or giving greenish selfies with HDR+ active; his Pixel Mod, on the other hand, works perfectly.

Google Camera Pixel Mod links: Original version (more options in advanced); v1 (improved video stabilisation).

Recommendation: If you want detailed main and selfie cam pictures, set the model config to "Nexus 5x" instead of "Nexus 6P"; I was dissatisfied with the selfies on the latter config, but after reading this by B-S-G, I switched and all was well. The main camera config, as with the actual Nexus phones, is exactly the same.

UPDATE (11/2/20):


Recommended cams:

Oreo: MGC_5.1.018_tolyan009_v1.4.1-test6.apk

Pie: MGC_6.1.021_MI8_V2e+.apk (no libs)/(w/libs)/(dark menu w/libs)

10: MGC_7.2.014_Parrot043-v3.apk ; MGC_6.1.021_mi6 edition _v7.7a (6.1 interface, plenty of libs, XML compatibility).

Yeah same thing on ZUK Z2 Pro with same gcam mod, all of them ... No matter that Camera2API is there ... Just not working ... Period ...

at least 120 fps 720p with sound is working on latest CosmicOS, also HEVC.
But no 60fps

Has anyone tried to rename in built.prop the line "Z2 Pro" with "Z2121" and checked after restarting if problem still occurs?

I tried and the max recording fps still 30 - I think is something related to the camera driver. The dev of the ROM's need to fix it

Edit:

New Cam Mod Released by @Arnova8G2

2018/01/22 – GoogleCamera-PixelMod

ChangeLog :

Fix green picture in front HDR+ for Moto Z

Add toggle "Improve photos in low light"

Setting of the parameter menu

Add About by respect of the developers

Other code for the HDR+ of the front camera (OP3/OP3T/OP5/OP5T)

I tried on my device with Cosmic OS from 20/01 and everything works except for the portrait mode on front cam where the shots have some greenish effect.

Please @Arnova8G2 can you fix this? Thanks!

This "Pixel2Mod" doesn't work as well for this phone as the "PixelMod". Greenish front HDR+, followed by crashes; plus, all the model/HDR+ configuration options are gone.

@Arnova8G2, if you could add a toggle to fix the greenish/pinkish tint on the back camera's "HDR+ on" mode, and perhaps stick in your "improve photos in low light" toggle, the original "PixelMod" would be the best GCam mod for this phone, hands down.

Everything working except for still greenish effect on front camera portrait mode, and no hdr+ on front camera.
I suggest you guys to do a clear cache/data on every install.

may I ask in which ROMs Google Camera works properly ?
I know that it works on AEX 5.1 but that ROM seems to be buggy for me , I did not like it. I use RR v5.8.3 for a long time since it is very stable and battery life is good but I tried to install Google Camera in that ROM , no luck..

Does any of the Nougat ROMs for Zuk Z2 Pro supports camera2api ? anyone knows?

I don't think any Nougat ROM for this phone supports Camera2API. It was kinda a big deal when it was annouced for AEX 5.1. What version of 5.1 was "buggy" for you? The latest official version has issues, but the New Year's Eve beta works great.

The last version works really slow for me.. for example double tab to wake feature works with 1-2 seconds delay. Same as pressing power button to wake device up works with delay.. Wifi toggle also same.. I mean in general feeling ROM was quite slow compared to RR Nougat ROM. I saw your post about new year's eve version in another topic , I downloaded it and tried to install but somehow same gapps which was working in latest version did not work in new year's eve version.. Can you tell me which gapps (with release date of gapps) did you flash exactly?

Last 2 days I keep switching between ROMs to check which one is most stable.. I should say that definitely Stock ROM with Android 8 is the fastest and most stable one. But it is very frustrating that you can not use Google Camera in that ROM , such an annoyance.. howcome ZUI developers did not include camera2api in Oreo version , i could not understand

    @Arnova8G2 can you plese reinsert possibility to change model in the setting as the first Pixel2mod version? Now we can only change HDR setting, thanks for all! Set Pixel2 as model seems to reduce pinkish effect!

    The final v6 version should fix the pink tint. Wait a few more days.
