    Hi everyone - updated my summary post. :) Changes include:
    Note: The camera libraries in the latest Open Beta (OB21/OB19) as well as the last Open Beta (OB20/OB18) are the same as the ones that are there in Open Beta OB19/OB17, hence the DotFix/CameraLibFix doesn't need to be updated and will work just fine on the latest OOS (beta and stable) as well as custom ROMs. :)

    Changelog is pointing to the old one.

    @Urnyx05 , I've done some more testing and noticed the flash does work properly portrait mode before taking a picture. If you just open the app and take a picture in a dark room its like the flash goes off too soon and the image is captured after the flash is off. ( All you get is a mostly black image)

    I am using a 5T if that makes a difference. If there is anything else I can do / try let me know.

    That shouldn't be happening. Try clearing data of the app and rebooting before launching it. Also, make sure you have the DotFix/CameraLibFix Magisk module installed (either from my summary post or Magisk Repo).

    Additionally, if you're using an audio mod, then some of them conflict with DotFix/CameraLibFix (also mentioned as a bug in my summary post). Try uninstalling any audio mod you might have before trying again.

    Same here. Would it be possible @shadowstep, for you to provide the old twrp fix(not with magisk). Somehow magisk_fix+Dolby causes camera to crash

    Known issue, also mentioned as a bug in my summary post. You will need switch SELinux to permissive if you want to use Dolby in addition to the DotFix/CameraLibFix.

    The fix that you had provided earlier which was just twrp and not the magisk-twrp worked fine along with dolby. I recently flashed the ROM again and lost the previous twrp fix, and now when I downloaded the magisk-twrp fix it no longer works.

    So then don't use the Magisk module and use the TWRP zip instead with the fix. It's also there in my summary post.

    I did that. The twrp zip is also installing a magisk module when flashed from recovery now.

    Then you definitely downloaded the wrong zip. I suggest you go through the status summary post again (point 1, sub-point c) and download the correct zip (it says Flashable Zip in that sub-point clearly) as per your device and Treble compatibility of the ROM you're running.

    Thanks for your quick reply. Really appreciate it.

    I may have downloaded the in correct zip. I then downloaded the zip from https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/op5fix/ and flashed it in recovery. It worked

      Google Camera Mod for OnePlus 5 (cheeseburger) and 5T (dumpling)

      1. Camera HAL Confusion
      a. Camera HAL Basics
      • First, let's understand what a camera HAL is. A camera HAL is what allows a ROM to "talk to" the camera hardware; without it, the camera would be non-functional. Think of the camera HAL as the steering wheel and pedals of a car. The steering wheel/pedals allow for control of the internal components of the vehicle by providing an external interface for the driver (the ROM) to make use of the internal components.
      • At present, the source code of the camera HAL included in OxygenOS has not been released by OnePlus. Instead, OnePlus has compiled that source code and shipped it on the OnePlus 5/5T as a BLOB (Binary Large OBject). This has been a major setback for custom ROM developers because having access to the camera HAL source would make porting the stock OnePlus Camera to a custom ROM a much easier endeavour.
      b. Camera HAL, Google Camera Mod and Root Requirements
      • The latest releases of the mod require you to be rooted (as you mandatorily need to install DotFix, which contains a modified camera HAL compatible with the latest releases) or the pictures that you click will come out with pink/purple/green tint on them, or will have a dotted pattern on them, or the camera might not work at all. So if you're rooted, then you're good to go. However, if you're unrooted (and prefer staying that way), then you can still use an specific version of the mod which works fine (with a few issues/restrictions, of course). All the downloads for rooted as well as non-rooted users are in the next post in the thread (post # 2).
      2. Known Bugs and Workarounds
      [Unrooted Only] Dotted Pattern Overlay
      • Issue - A dotted pattern overlay is visible in the HDR+ pictures (when completely zoomed in)
      • Resolution - You have to root, install DotFix as well as the recommended version for rooted users from point 3
      [Unrooted Only] Front Camera HDR+/Portrait Mode Non Operational/Captures Distorted Pink/Purple/Green Lines
      • Issue - Front camera captures distorted pink/purple/green lines while using HDR+ or Portrait Mode
      • Resolution - You have to root, install DotFix as well as the recommended version for rooted users from point 3
      [Rooted Only] HDR+ Front Camera Pictures Restricted to 4.0 Megapixels
      • Issue - HDR+ pictures that are clicked with the front camera are restricted to 4.0 megapixels, even though the maximum resolution of 15.9 megapixels is selected for the front camera under settings
      • Resolution - None available yet; details of why this is the case are mentioned in this post
      [Both] Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL) Non Operational
      • Issue - Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL) doesn't work
      • Resolution - None available yet
      [Both] DotFix Magisk Module Incompatible with Audio Mods
      • Issue - Some audio mods interfere with the DotFix Magisk module due to which they don't work as intended
      • Resolution - Uninstall the audio mods or try setting SELinux to permissive using SELinux Switch from this post of mine.
      More troubleshooting tips and tricks are present here and here. You can also read the Telegram channel's FAQ here.
      3. Important Notes and Links
      a. Important Notes
      • Everytime you change a settings, make sure you force-close and swipe it away from recents, and then restart the app so that the new settings are applied correctly. A sure shot way to make sure the settings have applied is to restart your phone.

      I realized this was never posted in this thread, so for those of you who might be wondering why Arnova8G2 has been missing in action for sometime now, it's because he met with a motorcycle accident and he's in the hospital, where smartphones and other portable electronic devices are forbidden. The accident was a major one and he's started to use the wheelchair now and hopefully with rehabilitation/physiotherapy, he'll be able to walk soon. Let's keep him in our thoughts and pray for his speedy recovery.
