In Moto G4 "Photos" by Google totally relpaced Moto Gallery, don't ask for this port then.
Both the apps work only on Marshmallow or newer.

Time Weather aka Command Center on older Motos - Flashable zip or Standalone app
Uninstall any previous version of Command Center to avoid conflicts before installing this.

Camera - Flashable zip (Play Store upgradable)

Tip 1: Add the following line to your build.prop in order to enable professional mode: (thanks @iiWoodstocK)
Code:
ro.product.device=athene
else you can try this package made by @hossman

Tip 2: Enable "Save to SD" feature:
Thanks @tee_pot and @VR.gtmini for the step by step guide.
  • Open (and backup) packages.xml from /data/system folder in QuickEdit app
  • Search with the in-built feature for com.motorola.cameraone
  • Paste <item name="android.permission.WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE" granted="true" flags="0" /> in/after <perms> tag
  • Save by pressing back twice and confirming Yes (Grant Root permission if asks)
  • Reboot
else if you are an Xposed user, Marshmallow SD Fix

Are you on stock rom?
I got the widget working as standalone app (you can install it as a normal app) anyway, try it please.
I'm looking if it is possible doing the same for the camera.

The only thing I can think that could cause this issue is the new touchscreen firmware. Since around a month on CM we use the lollipop touchscreen firmware. If it still doesn't work on latest cm nightlies, sorry I haven't other clues.
all apps are working on cm13.......thanks
can you port g4 bootanimation for cm13 pls..
Don't quote the whole OP please. Take a look here

To remove it simply extract the zip and find the files that you see it the system partition and delete them using any root explorer or es file explorer will do the work.
Press thanks if It helped you.

So here you go...
You need es file explorer make sure you have root grant root access and mount R/W for system partition.
After that head to system/app directory and delete the folder, 'Command-Center'
Next you go to system/etc/permission and delete the file named, "com.motorola.commandcenter.library.xml".
And finally go to system/framework and delete the file named "com.motorola.commandcenter.library.jar".
Now reboot your device you will find that it has been removed. If you are still facing problem then mention it to me. :)

Many thanks Alberto!

I am using the cam on cm13 and it seems everything works great.

However I wish it would store pics to external storage... There looks to be an option but its greyed out, all permissions are granted. Anyone know a possible work around?

Thanks

    Some of you may have noticed that Motorola has published the new camera as new app but when you open it, you'll get "Device not Supported" message.
    This zip (which basically is the one you can find at the first post without the camera apk) will make it working.
    Why making another zip then? Simply in this way you don't have to download the camera app twice.
    This procedure should work on every device but on non-moto ones (or in those custom roms where is not possible installing the old camera from the Play Store), you have to wait for the Play Store refreshing your device permissions (this may take hours or days). If you do a wipe data, you will be able to install the new camera immediatly instead.
    Just another thing about the disabled storage selection. They probably use old/proprietary APIs for storage location, I can't do much about this. This may be a good workaround though.

    EDIT: I forgot to say that on CyanogenMod, starting from 03/06/2016 nightly (on osprey and surnia), you can use the new camera without flashing anything else. Just install the new app from the Play Store.

    You need to set your /system folder as writable. But at this point it's better for you using the above procedure.

    Is there a way to modify the APK of the Moto G4 Camera in order to force enable professional mode?
    Yes, unzip the apk, go to res/values/raw folder and open app_features.json and add your device codename to the following line:
    Code:
    "device": "athene,griffin,addison"
    Zip everything again, sign the apk and it is ready for the installation.
    PS: To enable professional mode without editing the apk you have to add to your build.prop the ro.product.device property, not ro.product.name.
