Version 1/2/3 for FROYO DEODEXED (Hack is based on JS5 2.2.1)

G versions for GINGERBREAD STOCK & DEODEXED


FROYO STOCK ROMs: Try deleting original 'Camera.apk' and 'Camera.odex' from your system folder and then place my 'Camera.apk' there. How to do that? Easy Guide Here (you need root access) (You will find my 'Camera.apk' of any version just unzipping the files below)

AUDIO HACK USERS (all versions): There might be loss of sync between audio and video. In that case can be corrected later with Avidemux.
Avidemux MiniTutorial: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=12067865&postcount=76


Version 1: 'Low Battery' Hack
We can still use the camera (both still images and videos) with battery below 15%

http://www.multiupload.com/C10P3QI0LK


Version 2: 'Low Battery' Hack + 'Shutter' Hack
In addition to using the camera on low battery, the power button can be used to take pictures (without autofocus yet) and to record videos (first click STARTs, next click STOPs)

http://www.multiupload.com/JXUQ0TBMHK

Version 2b: 'Low Battery' Hack + 'Shutter' Hack Plus
Just with one click, camera focuses and then shoots!

http://www.multiupload.com/OXTIHJUKNQ

Version 3: 'Low Battery' Hack + 'Shutter' Hack + *Audio Hack
This version adds to the previous hacks a higher quality audio in both frequency and bitrate
[1280x720: 44100Hz/192Kbps # 720x480: 44100Hz/128Kbps # 640x480: 32000Hz/default # 320x240: default/default # 176x177: 8000Hz/default]


http://www.multiupload.com/IL2VA3Y5QT

Version 3b: 'Low Battery' Hack + 'Shutter' Hack Plus + *Audio Hack
Version 3 plus autofocus. Just with one click, camera focuses and then shoots!

http://www.multiupload.com/IE0EAJH4V8

* There might be loss of sync between audio and video. In that case can be corrected later with Avidemux.
Avidemux MiniTutorial: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=12067865&postcount=76

As 'android.policy.jar' and 'framework-res.apk' are linked and share common power menu options,
I decided to offer 2 versions for this hack: First for stock power menu, second for extended power menu

Last addition:

As most of you may know, Samsung had the marvellous idea of make dissapear the GPS option from our camera settings on Froyo
Camera-LowShutter-NoGeoTag.apk will totally disable GeoTag info in our photos :)

How to install it? Easy Guide Here

Note: Since Froyo Samsung removed from settings Geotag and 2 seconds review. you know why? Me neither

Awesome!

Even without auto focus having a physical button to take the picture is a definite win as I always move the phone to press the screen...

Has it been tested with gingerbread? I'm going to make a back up and try it and report back...

Edit. Thats a negatory on ginger compatibility just to save anyone from trying (it will launch the camera but the application loops causing the media scanner to go on a rampage and slow the phone down lol)


Great mod none the less!

Let me see if I can apply the hack on Gingerbread JV1 as well
Please post here your 'camera.apk' when you have time
I will also try to find it by my own ;)

Sorry but should be something really related to your custom rom
Other people has at least market problems with that final release and no camera hacks at all. Try to ask in the own rom thread
Hope you did a camera backup before as my notes say

Thanks, maybe you can make us happy removing battery limitations from music and video players too! :D Or, at least, tell us how to do it, please!

nice hack.

it would be amazing to see continuous focusing while recording video, or manual focus by taping on screen (also while recording).

Continous autofocus on video if you have applied patch before stays regardless of firmwares after. Got it on froyo and it's still here on ginger. QUOTE=NODO-GT;11879563]nice hack.

As Idan73 says, that's firmware related, not to the camera.apk itself. I have it on mine by the way. Try (at your own risk as usual). For me working like a charm:
