Tested this on AOSiP ROM.Most of the things works well,but there are some bugs
1.slow mo doesn't work
2.very slow(3-5 s). Time to change between portrait and photo mode and also from back to front camera

Overall it's the best miui camera port that I have come across. I jumped to Aosp ROM as soon as this camera is ported

I don't know!

Tested it out in AOSiP. Camera quality is good, portrait mode works great, same as stock camera.
Bugs I could find so far:-
1. As stated above by @Subhashis Switching from portrait to normal mode and front to back camera or vice versa lags like hell, takes 3 - 4 seconds.
2. FP Shutter doesn't work.
3. No auto HDR is available.
4. AI Mode is not working (I don't think it is gonna work anyway).
5. Even 1080p video doesn't have any stabilization.
6. Clicking on slow-motion crashes the camera app.
7. I don't know what magic mirror does but enabling group selfies does nothing (I know its a MI series features and I don't expect it to work on this phone either).

The lag is main problem in this camera. Otherwise its great. Having FP Shutter and Auto HDR would be convenient though. Thank you so much for your hard work man!

Edit:- Another problem I found after some time that flashing this camera stops Google camera from working, it crashes at launch. After disabling or uninstalling A2 camera form magisk Google camera works fine.

Edit 2:- Well, after disabling the module and making google camera work, re-enableing the module both camera works fine. Its wired or I might be doing something wrong.

Photos taken using portrait mode in both the front and back camera takes years to process (10-15 seconds). :p While processing the camera is unusable and if you press too many buttons while its stuck, it will force stop.

Only portrait mode working here, anything elks results in phone crashing to black screen and have to reboot.
Edit: I did something and now everything working well
Edit: ok have found the culprit. HDR must be enabled along with AI. If HDR is disabled when AI is active, phone will crash

For camera related apps and mods, I think its a good idea to also state your device model -- Indian RN5pro or Global RN5 when reporting, because there might be some camera module/sensor related problems
Sorry, edited my post, the problem was HDR had to be active when AI is active. Once I realised this I've had no problem. This is so good. Thanks

Doesn't seem to work on Resurrection Remix. App appears as '60' and refuses to open. Still, I'll keep an eye, this port is promising

Can you try this? change line in /common/system.prop ro.product.device=tissot_sprout to ro.product.device=whyred. and replace /system/etc/device_features/tissot_sprout.xml to whyred.xml found in miui rom and see if it helps.

    No credits to my Mi A1 Stock Camera module? Really? No wonder it's not a proper working port.
    Please check date modified and file sizes. You guys obviously took the files from my github module which is why you can't get it properly working.

    At least give proper credits next time.
    My module is properly licensed with GNU GPL 3.0 btw. Don't want to get yourselves in trouble.

    That's not how it works - your repo mostly contains BLOBs, with the exception of some shell scripts - but the files you highlighted are clearly binaries. By the way, I'd recommend comparing by checksum (not by date or size) the next time.

    Doesn't matter if I'm Xiaomi. At least try to find out the source first if you're re-using files. :)
    That's wrong - you can't just claim these proprietary blobs (coming from various sources including Xiaomi, Qualcomm, and others) as your own work. In this case, nobody needs to give credits or ask you before using these files - they can be found in some Xiaomi stock firmware/dump anyway.

    However, one could credit you for the idea behind the project of yours.

    I didn't want to PM since it's an open thread anyways.
    While this thread is in fact open and public, you shouldn't be doing this - always try to handle issues in a PM first. Otherwise, you can still report posts/users and move along - moderators will do the needful.

    There's really no need for drama.
