As we all know, camera quality on non-MIUI custom ROMs is unfortunately subpar. But the Google Camera app ported by developers help alleviate this issue by improving image quality. You can learn more about it here.

Android 9, 10, and 11 ROMs. Might work with <9.0 ROMs but I can't confirm.

1. Check if camera2api is already enabled (Most 9/10+ ROMs already have this feature enabled by default so you probably don't have to do this). You can use the Manual Camera Compatibility app (link). If all are green, you can skip step 2. If it's red, contine to the next step.
2. Enable camera2api. There are two ways to do this: manually adding a line in build.prop or by flashing a Magisk module. (link)

3. Install the app. GCam versions from these devs I can confirm working on the 4a (If you do find other versions that work, please do reply below):


Older GCam versions: (less features but more stable)
- scrubber (might not work on newer Android versions)
- arthur


Newer GCam versions: (more features but less stable for the phone)
- Nikita

Google Camera Go: (basically GCam lite)
- Wichaya

Other recommended versions (not all works)

• Features that don't work or buggy:
- Slow Motion (use Nokia Camera or others instead)
- Dark video recording (may depend on ROM/use Camera Go)

Yup, Auto HDR+ works.
The dev has taken down the download link and I believe he no longer maintains the ROM. You can try other ROMs or this newer build of LOS14.1 by muralivijay: Link

AospExtended ROM V5.6 (17/06)
LineageOS 14.1 (11/10/17) by Carlos Arriaga (link)

1. Check if camera2api is already enabled. You can use the Manual Camera Compatibility app (link). If all are green, you can skip step 2. If it's red, contine to the next step.
2. Enable camera2api. There are two ways to do this: manually adding a line in build.prop or by flashing a Magisk module. (link)
3. Download GCam5.1.018-Arnova8G2-V1.2.apk, from here. It's the latest one I could find that has video recording working. (If there are other versions that work, let me know :)

• Recommended settings:
1. Tap the ☰ icon then go to Settings.
2. Select these settings to make HDR+ work:
- Config camera HDR+: Nexus 6 Auto
- Model: Pixel 2XL
- HDR+ parameters: Medium
- Advanced>HDR+ control enabled
3. Close then open the app to apply settings.

• Features that don't work/missing:
- Slow Motion
- 60FPS video recording
- Portrait Mode

I've updated the thread to show the GCam versions that work for the Redmi 4A running Android Pie ROMs. If you know helpful fixes or find versions from other developers that works, feel free to post it here (as well as the ROM you're running it on) so that I could add it in the thread. Thanks.

Sorry to revive this thread, but none of the posted versions is working for me on rolex, with RR Oreo (6.2.0) and enabled camera2api?
Any idea what might be wrong?
All GCams crash on app start. Camera2API is working, showing all green in manual camera compatibility test, and working fine in OpenCamera.
