Here is a simple workaround fix for the 4K overheating issue. It disables thermal control in the camera app so you may record the video even if the device is hot.


This is a dirty fix and should be used with EXTREME caution. I'm not responsible for any bricks, etc.


Usage:
1. Backup your current ROM.
2. Backup both SemcPowerSaveModule.apk and SemcPowerSaveModule.odex (if exists).
3. Ensure you're on .402 or .314 firmware.
3. Flash my fix in recovery.
4. Enjoy!


Warning: I had good results with the fix after lowering my Z2 CPU clocks. Do not use the Camera if it's really hot outside, this isn't healthy for the device!!

I cannot speak for others, but I was able to record an over ten minutes 4K video after using this. However the file was extremely big and the device was extremely hot. Later I downclocked to 1,7Ghz and tried again with a 6mins video and the heat was bearable.

I basically changed the temp that triggers the camera turn off.

This is a really bad idea. The thermal limit is i place for a reason, with this mod you seriously risk permanently damaging your phone. As op said, use with extreme care.

Nice mod, especially because you didn't tweak it to high... but that's not smart to do often.
One video and let your device cool for a bit...

Overheating FC isn't error or bug, that's added for a purpose.

We all know what could happen if cpu works after critical temperature reach.
Your device could literally explode..

Now we see all glory of using same cpu as on Z1 but overclocked... ;)

Useful as my camera often closes for normal use if the ambient temp is too high. I think it is too sensitive as the phone and battery get much hotter during gaming with no issues

better try to tweak the kernel to produce less heat by undervolting or underclocking.

What is the lowest clock you can record a stable fuild 4K video with?

FC Stock Camera app

To Prevent force closing of camera app just freeze the overheat control service
Be careful because of the temperature it is just reaches 50 degrees it's dangerously for the phone

That's actually a worse idea, because the overheat control service controls more then just preventing the overheating the camera. It has also switches for Wifi overheating control, frequency changes and it also controls the power saving features of the phone.

If you ask politely maybe someone will upload the original SemcPowerSaveModule. Do you always flash first, read instructions later?

    can you make one to limit up for 5C?

    Yes. I also plan to release an Xposed module for changing the limits. I'm just too busy currently with other things in my life.

    What should i do to return it to its original state?

    Restore both SemcPowerSaveModule.apk and SemcPowerSaveModule.odex from backup.
