This is kinda work in progress port of Gcam with hdr+ for arm devices. it's based on google camera version 4.2.035.141213305-arm.

it needs camera api 2 enabled. you can enable it via flashing the zip I've attached or add below line into build.prop.

Code:
persist.camera.HAL3.enabled=1

Stock rom is preferred, but it should work on all roms as long as above requirement is met.


Google camera apk

Please let me know if auto/touch focus works or not. happy testing :good:

Requires TWRP for flashing zip. or root for manually editing build.prop

Activating "Slow Motion" mode crashing the camera app.

slowmotion video won't work, nor i will fix it. moto cam have that option already. this is only for hdr+


Again, i don't have this phone to test, does HDR+ with touch/auto focus works or not on this phone ? seriously guys you are getting free lunch here, all i'm asking how it tastes and you can't even tell me that ?

Not working, have installed apk n also flashed zip. No option in build.prop so added my own (no idea if it's right) camera just stops on opening.
Any further testing feel free to give me a shout :)

I've included my about phone so you can see what I'm running :) need to get around to sorting my signature out on here :)

Can you try it on stock rom ? custom roms have their own set of problems some times.

Hello

First of all thank you the thing is working great on aicp (13).
There seems to be no problem with touch to focus our HDR+. In fact I even tried it on copy is (android 8.0.0) and it kinda cured it of the camera bug.
Thanks again.
Post more.
Thanks again...

Working in LOS 15! Seems that it doesn't fall victim to the problem of freezing when trying to take more than one consecutive photo which is very nice! It has a few quirks such as only going up to about 9MP max resolution (due to being ported from a 9MP device?), a few of the features such as slow motion and panorama etc. are not working, and trying to use HDR+ with the front-facing camera crashes the app, but it seems that the point of this was just to get HDR+ working so I'd say it's working nicely! :) The image quality is great despite the loss of resolution, especially in low light and autofocus / touch to focus seems to be working fine! Thanks! :)

I was testing with Ressurection Remix 7.1.1 and the camera doesn't work.
Tried without editing the build.prop and crashed, flashed the .zip and not only the google camera didn't work, it also broke the other cameras (LO Camera and Moto Camera). Putting the value back to 0 restored functionality in both cameras but Google Camera is still not working.

Hope my feedback helps

Nice port. Everything working fine on STOCK OPTIMIZED rom, except:
- HDR+ in Frontal Camera crashes the app
- Slow Motion crashes the app
- Sometimes the video recorder don't saves the video, don'ts show any message or error.

And for some uses that can't start app because it's crashing on start:

Reinstall system
Don't flash HAL3 zip
Start the rom, boot, insert your Google Credentials
after setting up the rom, restart your phone and flash the zip
after flashing the zip, install gcam apk as normal apk
that's all

And yes, touch to focus and auto-focus is working too. In video recorder the touch to focus works too.

    Since it requires flashing this file, I think root is required. Not sure if can be done without.
