Hello !

2 years later I´m proud to present you my very first MOD for the GALAXY S5.
Still remember the old HX-days ;)

HX-Camera-Mod.jpg


STOCK CAMERA is based on XXU1ANG1

Features:

HX_Camera_MOD_1.1

  • 1080P = 27 Mbit
  • 720P =17 Mbit
  • 1080P60FPS = 42 Mbit (Works as expected)
  • UHD = UNTOUCHED !
  • UHD Limitation removed ! (60 min. confirmed working !)
  • All modes have 256 kbit Audio.
New in 1.1:

  • Added Outdoor-visibility Option (need confirmation if this works)
  • Added Photo and Video Quality options (unfortunately there is an icon-bug, but we don´t care...)
  • Superfine = 100 % Photo Quality MOD, Photos will mostly be over 10 MB size.
    Fine = Untouched
    Normal = max. compression = min. file size
  • Slowmotion 2X will be REPLACED for 720P -> 60FPS
  • Slowmotion for ALL Resolutions Added (only 4X and 8 X)
  • FastMotion for ALL resolutions
  • 1080P Superfine = 30 Mbit
    Fine = 23 Mbit
    Normal = 17 Mbit
  • UHD Superfine = 62 Mbit
    Fine = 48 Mbit
    Normal = 38 Mbit
  • 1080P60fps Superfine = 62 Mbit
    Fine = 46 Mbit
    Normal = 22 Mbit


New in 1.2:


  • fixed missing BURST Photo feature
  • fixed red-dot-icon
  • Slow-Motion 4X_720P is replaced for REAL 720P @ 120 FPS, still 8 X is beeing used for slow-Mo.
- Can´t go over ~ 56 Mbit on UHD Video for some reasons.
- Still 1080P Slow-Motion works only on "Normal" Video Quality.

- UHD slow-Motion causes Camera to CRASH

New in 1.21:


  • Burst Mode (camera-crashes) fixed
  • Camera-APP from DXU1ANG1 is exactly the same, so no change here.
New in 1.22:

  • New icon for Video/Photo Quality settings (made by "EarthQuaker")

New in 1.3:


  • Taking Photos during 1080P60FPS and UHD by pressing VOL UP / VOL DOWN (needed to be set in the settings)




I need confirmation for exFAT, so UHD Videos size can be more then 4 GB.
Please test this Setting.


If the Camera app is not beeing replaced, Just extract the zip file and Copy SamsungCamera3.apk to System\app\



  1. Download Zip-File
  2. Flash with CWM recovery
  3. Reboot

Okay Thanks. Can i Edit ne MediaProfiles for more Quality with 4K Res.?


My MediaProfiles.xml:

<EncoderProfile quality="high" fileFormat="mp4" duration="30">
<Video codec="h264"
bitRate="85000000"
width="3840"
height="2160"
frameRate="30" />

<Audio codec="aac"
bitRate="256000"
sampleRate="48000"
channels="2" />
</EncoderProfile>

But this doesn't work with your HX-Mod. But your mod is Cool :)

No. This file will have no effect.
In my opinion. 48 mbit is the best quality to file size for uhd res. Same goes to 1080 @60 fps.

It should show 60 mins. Maybe because you have the 900s?

Welcome back man !
Already flashed and 60min 4K is ok
EDIT: Not working on edgar's rom :/ (Odexed rom)
@hyperx add an line to your installation script to remove the SamsungCamera3.odex file, and this mod should work also on odexed roms then!
It means u're gonna add it to your rom ? Am I wrong ? :3

Maybe, as an option... And if I get permission from @hyperX- of course!

Edit: read above posts, if you're running an odexed ROM (like mine), then you need to delete the SamsungCamera3.odex file in your /system/app folder.

    Wish this mod actually worked....Had high hopes for this, but every build/update just gets worse and worse. NEED my camera working 100% and all this does is bork things up. IMHO


    I really don´t know what you are trying to say ?

    All i have done is, to extend the Original Camera-APP from Samsung to have More Options/Quality Settings depending on the HARDWARE.

    that means:


    • It will be never Possible to have Slow-Motion + UHD working
    • It will be never Possible to have to have smooth motion UHD
    • It will be never Possible to have 1080P Slowmotion like 720P (just because 720P Slow-motion is recorded in 120 FPS)
    The list can be much more and more... but i´m sure you know what i am trying to say !?


    The Basic Functions of the Original Samsung Camera is working as expected, except:

    • Slow-motion (720P) 1/2 - > is replaced for 720P 60FPS
    • Slow-motion (720P) 1/4 - > is replaced for 720P 120FPS
    Okay, Maybe i have to revise my changelog, but you have to notice we are still in DEVELOPING section !

    Good News

    Can't wait for another badass update!

    Sent from my SM-G900F using XDA Free mobile app

    Update to 1.3.

    This sounds interessting.
    Since moving on to a newer build again is a lot of work i need more confirmation on ANG2 build... are there noticeable changes ?
    Also can someone give me the ANG2/ANG3 build of the camera ?

    I'm hesitant to update as of now since I lose root. And there are no easy methods where I stay rooted and the Knox counter doesn't trip. I'll ask around in the forums if someone can provide us with the SamsungCamera3.apk. Do you need anything else with that? system/etc/media_profiles.xml?

    (Camera Firmware Menu: *#34971539#)

    The new camera FW Ver is F16QLHF01GB (Phone/Load) (ANG2 Build)
    I have F16QLHC04GB (Phone/Load) (ANE2 Build)
    Phone is SM-G900F (Snapdragon 801)


    @lucky_sidhu can you check your camera FW Version?
