Hint? Where did that come from?

Well here's a hint for ya, the versions mentioned that seemed to work at first, stopped taking pictures after a while. Is that clear enough?

Why do some ALL mods stop after a while.
It makes no sense

I think it's not an issue with the GCam mods. When one fails, all will fail. I believe the issue is at a lower level, in the Camera2 api or driver level.
Maybe I should take the time to look at logcats between a working and a failing session...

I'm using latest Parrot034 for a few days and everything working ok. Manually set settings!

Same here.

parrot v2 and cstark 4.3 are working cams.
But U should go to settings - as already discussed many times.
For cstark's PX battery optimization should be switched off as well. Parrot's cam looks to be OK with.

Been there, did that. Still failed after a few days. It's not an issue in the GCam ports themselves: when one start failing, they all fail. It's something else, deeper in the OS.

I'm using this Parrot043 version: https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/cfiles/gcm1/MGC_7.3.018_Parrot043-v1.apk and it's working fine ONLY with the Nokia7plus.xml file: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/p/f/2020/02/nokia7plus.xml
Note: This version stores files in*/ConfigsCamera7/*not inside the usual*/GCam/Configs7/*folder.

This folder appears in the folders menu ONLY if you save an .xml file of any draft settings in the advanced settings menu of the camera firstly.

After this saving, copy the Nokia7plus.xml file in the folder and open the GCam app.
Restore it with a double tap on the black bar.
With all these settings it works fine without any problems for the last 5 days & taking many many photos!!

Enjoy![emoji4]

On my Nokia 7 plus with Android 10, I used "PXv4.3_7.2.014" for several months without having any problems. I installed the new version "MGC_7.3.018_Parrot043-v2" and it worked 2 days with some photos and now green photo or no more photos. I uninstall and reinstall the "PX" version.

Just fire 4-5 nightshots in a row , and you kill parrots app.
Deleted DCIM folder , cache and data of the camera app, inserted my config file and restarted the phone, app works again...
Seems to be the HDR+ processing that causes the mess, and its damn slow too...

I'm torn between the official app and the gcam port. Are the features of Gcam that much worth, to not be able to use the Telelense of the official app ?

Compare low light, night photos and see for your self... And tele quality is only good with day light and good weather imo. I used it a few times and forgot it. As said before the Nokia app is a failure

I still use Parrot's old version and it works since some weeks without problems.
PMGC_7.0.009_FinalBuild_V14.apk

After installation clear memory & cache -> reboot phone if a other version was installed before.

    GCam_6.1.021_N7P_test2.2
    Changes vs. test2.1 :
    - Under Advanced -> Port settings | (More advanced settings) :
    ---> Added "Pixel 3 AWB" (thanks to @Tomar777's suggestion and Toylann009's ports): this is turned on by default. I observed that when toggled ON, it produces more accurate and natural colors. Note that this only affects the rear camera. Check the comparison here.
    ---> Changed "Use custom lib" to Eszdman v3: I haven't done any tests here, but anyone might be interested. Stock lib is still my personal preference.
    - Added "Lens Blur" mode: toggle is on the left of Panorama. A bonus addition since I really don't use it, but again someone might be interested.
    - Performance improvements: I hope I'm right about this. So far it's working better in my device. #seemsfaster

    NOTE: fresh re-install or "clear storage" after installation is recommended to clear up isolated cases like crashing Portrait Mode, etc.

    Known issues:
    - Tap-to-focus in video mode breaks autofocus; workaround is switching to other modes and back.
    - Manual white balance in camera mode doesn't work (even in other ports, I believe). But it works in Photobooth; in Portrait Mode, it works after tapping the screen to focus. Suggested workarounds are (1) to use Portrait Mode for taking photos that need manual white balance adjustments, or (2) post-editing the photo.
    - Tap-to-focus doesn't seem to work in Lens Blur mode.
    - There might be instabilities with heavy usage.


    Whew, I can't believe I still managed to make an update with my very tight schedule. Haha. The previous v2.1 was my main driver for the past weeks, and I suppose these minor updates are worth it. Okay, back to work and studying. Again, this port needs no extra config. Cheers!

    GCam_6.1.021_N7P_test1.2
    Changes vs. test1.1 :
    - Fixed tap-to-focus crash bug in video mode
    - Added "Save portraits to DCIM/Camera/" under Advanced (thanks to Toylan009's port)
    - Minor UI tweaks

    I feel like I had to rush and post this one for the video crash fix. I'll be adding "necessary" features one at a time to keep things stable. I'm still learning this coding stuff, though, so it'll take time for me to get things going. At least everything seems okay so far.

    GCam_6.1.021_N7P_test2.1
    Changes vs. test2 :
    - Under Advanced -> Port settings | (More advanced settings) :
    ---> Added "Saturation adjustments" (thanks to [MENTION]Toylann009[/MENTION]'s and BSG's ports): I included a toggle to apply custom saturation adjustments; if disabled, the default Google settings are used.
    ---> Changed "Use custom lib" to Eszdman v2: in my tests, it does a good job with high contrast scenarios in good light, but tends to produce more noise in low light.
    ---> Added "Maximum brightness" (also thanks to [MENTION]Toylann009[/MENTION]'s port): sets max brightness in viewfinder mode. May consume battery, especially since our device doesn't have OLED display for the black areas of the screen.
    ---> Edited "HDR+ Enhanced frames": Default is now set to =7 (which is Google default).
    - Default JPEG quality is set to 97%: I find this the sweet spot for both quality and image file size.
    - Minor UI edits: a few re-wordings here and there. I've also added a note for the Disable zoom in Portrait mode for added information (read this for more info)

    NOTE: fresh re-install or "clear storage" after installation is recommended to clear up isolated cases like crashing Portrait Mode, etc.

    Known issues:
    - Tap-to-focus in video mode breaks autofocus; workaround is switching to other modes and back.

    P.S. Just to give you guys a heads-up, I may or may not return to this project since I have to begin prioritizing time for work and studies. Looks like these optimizations and additions are enough for the regular user; in most cases, this port needs no extra config. Cheers!

    I will go over these things once, and once only.
    Firstly, let's keep things on-topic and productive here, the topic being the Nokia 7 Plus users who use this mod.
    Talk of which phone is better than which is for other forum areas.
    Secondly this is, again, the Nokia 7 Plus forums. If you want to have the mod on another device, you're welcome to do as other devs have done here and port it to said device, or make a request for it in that devices Q/A forum. You may also try posting in the Google Camera Mods sub-forum.
    Alternatively, you can PM someone you think might be capable of making it happen, but they are under no obligation to you to do it or even respond to your PM. You should also not harass someone via PM under any circumstances.
    Remember, Developers do this work out of their spare time. You are not their boss and this is not their day job.
    Thirdly, I'll remind everyone of the XDA Rules, these ones especially:
    2.1 Language: XDA is a worldwide community. As a result, what may be OK to say in your part of the world, may not be OK elsewhere. Conversely, while reading posts from other members, remember that the word you find offensive may not be offensive to the writer. Tolerance is a two-way street.
    2.3 Flaming / Lack of respect: Never post in a demanding, argumentative, disrespectful or self-righteous manner.
    15. Keep threads / posts on-topic: Whilst a minor amount of off-topic posting may be overlooked, the general rule is that your posts / threads must be relevant to the Forum / thread in which you are posting.
    Future posts of this nature are welcomed to be brought to the attention of the moderation team.
    Thanks.

    GCam_6.1.021_test1.apk
    First attempt to make all "essential" features work. Looks like everything's working nicely, including:
    - All photo things (HDR+, Portrait mode, Panorama, Photo Sphere)
    - Video (I still recommend stock Nokia Camera especially for the OZO audio)
    - Zoom (not sure if Super Res Zoom works, though)
    - Burst shot
    - Night sight
    - Tracking autofocus
    - Motion photos
    - Photobooth
    - Slow motion
    - Auto lens distortion correction (for front camera)
    - Playground (AR stickers) (download here)
    - Launching from lockscreen

    Stock settings only, no additional config. However, under Advanced, I added the following toggles:
    - Use Classic Photo Viewer (default uses Google Photos; however, Google Photos has this bug that closes the photo if HDR+ is not yet finished processing)
    - HDR+ Enhanced for Portrait (for those who want increased dynamic range for portrait mode; force close app to apply changes)

    This is based on @Arnova8G2's Dec-9 port (original port here). NOTE that this works on my Nokia 7 Plus (TA-1046) on Android 9.0 Pie.

    One known issue is with Night Sight where you cannot take a photo after 2 consecutive shots; you need to wait until the first photo is finished processing before you can take another shot. There might be lags and crashes, but it's working fine for me so far.

    GCam_6.1.021_test1.apk

    Special thanks to: @Arnova8G2 for all the base ports and all the help in troubleshooting; B-S-G for the base ports too, source of learnings, and; @cstark27 for all things learned from your Pixel 1/2/3 port page and the source of the Advanced toggles.
