HOW TO FLASH TWRP FOR THE FIRST TIME

Bootloader should be unlocked before going into these steps


Install minimal adb & fastboot tools on your PC

1. Copy twrp.img file into minimal adb & fastboot folder and also keep camera2api file in your sdcard.

2. Goto fastboot mode by long pressing volumeUp+PowerButton.
Phone boots into fastboot mode. Now Connect your phone to pc.

3. Open cmd/powershell in minimal adb& fastboot folder by holding shift + rightClick on mouse then "click Open cmd here"

4. Now in the cmd type fastboot boot twrp.img

Now your phone boots into TWRP.

5. From booted TWRP, Goto mount->check System.

6. Now goto Install and select your camera2api.zip from your sdcard and flash it.
Download camera2api from here https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_7GMHjb6DB8A2TTxUZpg9Acd9qfLt83U/view?usp=drivesdk

7. Finally Goto Reboot and click system.

8. Finally download and install this gcam.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iqYCvEw7rQyn4w2KB6R9yWV6tby-JyUa/view?usp=drivesdk

Now you have gcam working.

9. To keep twrp forever, Flash disable-force-encryption-treble zip file which also installs magisk So, if you dont want root, flash magisk uninstaller next after flashing above file.

10. Finally reboot into system.

NOTE: DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK
Flash latest fastboot rom of your device if something goes wrong.

Give thanks if this helped you. If you have doubt hit me on telegram @isrikanthd

This G cam is special for our device ?

Slow motion is not working / crashing.

Night sight is unbelieveble awesome. Perfect.

Otherwise everthing on better in gcam.. more sharp..

It is working on xiaomi eu stable MIUI rom

It is working properly! Thank you!
Rom version : MIUI by xiaomi.eu 10.3.4 | Stable. (V10.3.4.0.PDICNXM)
Android version : 9
I followed the steps exactly as it is.

What works :
1080p 30FPS & 60FPS video recording with EIS, 720p 30FPS & 60 FPS with EIS, 4k 30 FPS only without EIS, Panorama, Portrait mode, Normal Camera mode with Night Sight, Photosphere, Google Lens.

What doesnt work :
Slowmotion - App crashes.

Camera 2 Probe results : Went from "Legacy" to "Hardware level 3"

Default MIUI camera did not have 4k30fps mode. But it does have 480p 30fps along with time lapse and Slow motion which works.

I flashed the camera2api and installed the Gcam given in this thread's third post. I already had TWRP so did not have to do everything from first.

The back camera's portrait mode clicks normal "zoomed-in" photos. It's not like the default MIUI camera's portrait mode. So I use the MIUI camera if I need portrait mode

And selfie Portrait mode on GCam doesn't work (It doesn't click a picture but doesn't crash the app either). I just found that out lol.

Apart from that normal modes are working in both back and front cameras for GCam
