I can confirm it is working. Are you using the correct version of GCam? It has to be Arnova's Gcam_6.1.021_Advanced_V1.6.190614.0200.apk and you must have an Exynos Note 8 and that you are on Pie update. Some other people have confirmed it is working for them. Make sure you copy the config on internal memory under GCam/Configs. But the most important part is making sure you have an Exynos Note 8 with the Pie update. I may have forgot to mention that these versions are meant for Pie software.

Im at exynos android pie and made sure that the files I've downloaded are correct but still getting a white image

and you will always get a white image unless you deactivate hdr+, which of course completely defies the purpose of using the gcam port. there is no fully working config for this version! the most feature complete and stable experience you get with idans port v. 4.6 (donation).
 
I think there is indeed a problem with HDR on all GCam version 6. I had received a message from someone on Reddit and I made some tests. I still think GCam take better photos overall, even without HDR enabled. The problem with iDan's version is that no longer installs on Pie. I doubt that even the paid version will install on Pie. The developer is not supporting it anymore.

@Makonator: that is definitely not a common version. I have searched a little bit and it seems to actually be named GCam.Exynos.Mod.5.1.018.177624777.apk and it is coming from iDan. I am uploading it here so anybody can use it. Just go into Settings - "Portrait, Lens Blur and other settings" (at the end of the photo settings) and choose 12.6 MP at Lens Blur mode megapixels, then go to Fast config. toogles and enable everything. This way you will get 3 toggles (Day, Night and Dark) that you can use to take photos in low light conditions. File is too large to be attached here, so I uploaded it on my Drive. It will show up as GCam Exynos in the apps drawer.

Be careful not to enable 60 FPS because video will be broken and you will have to reset the app.

Edit: It looks like the original name of the apk is mod8.3b_idan_v4.7_test. It can be found HERE and the md5sum is identical to the one I found elsewhere and I uploaded to my Drive.

Edge detection is perfect. Only thing for me it looks too much of hdr so every pore on face is visible...like too much details :) maybe some things in settings
In my case, my face is darker than in the previous version, and the background is brighter. Seems not natural. I am comparing with the previous Idan version I was using without the night mode settings. The rear camera is fine and I liked the results.

Anyway, I will wait for a more mature version. Thanks for share anyway :)

Does the AR Stickers function work for people? I can hear sounds but no toons are visible, and the camera view has artifacts.

    I found the settings of google camera that give the best HDR+, portraits on Nougat/Oreo Exynos devices. Compared to stock camera, GCam gives better saturation levels and detailed images. HDR+ parameters don’t hugely matter what you choose, and is all personal preference. A higher amount (very high in my case) will take a longer time to process.

    New settings attached below. Clean Install is always recommended.



    Mod8.3b_IDan_v3.2.9_Exynos.apk


    3.2.9 Features
    -Fixed black level back camera for Samsung Galaxy A8/A8+
    -Attempt to fix OIS
    3.2.7 Features
    - Fixed black level front
    - Enabled OIS by default
    - Added saturation options in Advanced HDR+ settings
    3.2 Features
    - Dark Theme for settings.
    - Now you can select the path where to save the photos (doesn't work on sd card but probably can work with some xposed mod).
    - Removed all the snapdragon toggles. The app will know when apply that settings.
    - Removed custom denoise param and other settings
    - Now the app will restart every time you go back from settings to the viewfinder. This means that you don't need anymore to restart the app to apply settings

    - Now there are three gestures in the viewfinder:
    1. double tap on the black area it will pop the exposure menu directly
    2. long-press on gallery and it will open samsung gallery instead of google photos
    3. long press on the switch camera and after the restart the viewfinder brightness will be set to maximum
    - some minor changes

    Gcam Tool v2..32
    -Prevent flipping of front camera photos
    -Choose which photos you want to move
    -Select custom source and destination folders
    -Batch move multiple files
    -Option to delete the sub folder created by Google Camera

    Download

    Hey guys, I took Google Camera on Note8 vs Canon 6D Mark I comparison, and the results are kinda awesome.

    I did an iPhone X vs Google Camera on Note 8 test sometime ago as well: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=75040247&postcount=668 (not very in depth, mind you, just a few snaps)

    So I had my Canon 6D mark I handheld with 24-105mm L f/4.0 IS kit lens in aperture priority mode, set to f/4.0 with automatic ISO and shutter speed, no exposure bias, in jpg. I first took two shots with HDR, and two without HDR. Also, Canon 6D mark I is notorious for producing a soft jpg out of the box, which is visible. Also, I might have had a case of shaky hands, but both cameras were handheld. Keep in mind that sharpness is usually much better when shooting in raw and throwing it in Lightroom. Obviously, if I shoot in raw and dedicate the time I will get better image quality out of 6D, even without bracketing, but that takes effort.

    The whole idea was to see if it's really worth taking something like Canon 6D hiking (where weight matters), if I am not trying to do something specific (like long exposure, or proper 50mm bokeh portraits, or if real zoom for wildlife).
    My question is this: do entry-level DSLRs (like Canon Rebel) in automatic mode actually get significantly better image quality than leading cellphones? Opinions?

    Note8 was set to HDR+ enhanced, using cstark v3.1 apk.
    Original 6D shots here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1C2LYsMXwEyGcMvDhY9-2ZXoriqwN6pPs?usp=sharing
    Original Note8 shots: https://photos.app.goo.gl/W0NlxSTZlY20F8Is2

    Note8 is always on the left, 6D is always on the right. I used OSX Preview on my mac, zooming both images to about the same size. Keep in mind that Note8 image is only 12MP, whereas 6D picture is 20MP from a full-frame sensor.

    There is a new apk from Arnova available HERE. Changelog is HERE. It seems to have new stuff from the latest apk, like timelapse and stuff. It cannot load configs anymore.

    I have also uploaded a new config I found HERE, named note_8_night_mode_portrait_everything.xml. Configs are still available on my Drive folder. These configs should work with Gcam_6.1.021_Advanced_V1.6.190614.0200 (just double tap the black area below the buttons in the interface).
