As everyone was asking for some guides and fixes of the Google Camera on our Mi Note 3 device, I decided to help you out with a guide and all necessary resources to get it working.

First of all, for people new to Google Camera, follow @dimi89 's guide as an introduction to all processes needed to achieve a working camera port.

To make it simple, you need to:
  • Unlock bootloader
  • Flash TWRP or boot it through fastboot (there are plenty of guides here)
  • Install Magisk systemless root through TWRP recovery
  • Flash my fixes module below to enable Camera 2 API and make front camera working as desired
  • Install the best APK for you from https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/
  • Be happy :)

Until now, we had it working but some features like Portrait mode, front camera HDR+ and portrait, plus front camera flash were missing.
With the help of @defcomg I managed to make a Magisk Module as a bundle that does both enabling Camera2API and adds necessary libs to fix the camera. You can download it below.

As per the apk of the GCam on your device, I recommend latest Arnova8G2 version. You can also find it at the bottom of this post. It is great and does not require any other settings after you apply the fix in Magisk.

Downloads here:
-Camera2API, Portrait mode + HDR on front camera fix (MAGISK MODULE) - https://mega.nz/#!M5gjSQxJ!K5Q4XmdRimI_x2xpOWexHR52qUi5sklOV7SVhWWo9RE
-Stable and autoconfig GCam - https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/...eCamera-Pixel2Mod-Arnova8G2-V7beta-test-9.apk

For any other questions, feel free to ask me.

IMPORTANT!! The fix for front cam may not work with all ROMs. It was tested on the following:
  • XIAOMI.EU Stable 9.5.4.0
  • XIAOMI.EU Stable 9.2.x.x
  • XIAOMI.EU Developer 8.3.22
  • Lineage OS
  • AOSP Extended

You can test it on your device on your own risk. If it does not work you can delete module from magisk.

Credits to @defcomg for the help with the library, @WebDingo for the magisk module and @Arnova8G2 for the amazing work with all GCam ports. Also crediting other developers for their great additions to this community.

Enjoy!

Thanksss. With arnova v6 (and this beta) works fine. So I've a problem but...you have 60 FPS video? For me is ever 30 FPS and I search in every part of the web the way to have got 60 FPS in full hd. For me is very important. If you know a way, please tell me (also use another new custom ROM). Thanks

    MIUI 10 for Jason is not even in public beta. Xiaomi has blocked camera 2 api in these releases so GCam not possible.

    If they ever fix the api, then it will work for sure.

    Hi, thank you for your contribution to jason's gcam.

    Recently, It is tested that MIUI 10 China Stable 10.0.5.0 and MIUI 10 China Developer 8.9.13 can enable Camera2Api and use gcam by the following way:

    - Delete "persist.camera.dxo=1"
    - Add "persist.camera.HAL3.enabled=1"
    Reboot.

    However, your module seems to no longer work on MIUI 10 for front HDR+/portrait fix.

    Could you please make a new module for MIUI 10? Thank you very much!

    Guys, join the petition on the official MIUI forum. Here's the link, we want our Camera2 API back on our Mi Note 3!!

    Great job Gcam now works very well, the only thing I noticed is that is laggy at times in portrait mode. Is it normal?

    Did you use the GCam version I recommended?

    will it work on my mi5s?

    No, MI 5S uses a different front camera sensor.
