Hey I am newbie here on XDA and wanna try out new roms on my phone (OP Nord), Is there any way of installing stock OOS camera on custom roms? the preinstalled camera on Lineage Os is just ok, tried Gcam also but i prefer the results from stock camera app. This the only thing which is stopping me from using custom rom and i reinstalled oxygen os back again using MSM tools and i miss the overall stock android feel and customizability of custom roms.

In what way was it bad? Im seconds away from flashing lineageos on my oneplus nord :)
Was the quality bad, didn't all cameras work or was it purely GUI-wise?
In my opinion is bad the lineage one because I cannot use all the secondary cameras of the phone. I tried also with Google camera but I have the same problem

Oh okey, that sucks. But the regular camera, and 16:9/10 (what ever it is) provides the same quality pictures?

Sorry if I'm stupid now, but couldn't you just download the apk from like apkmirror and sideload it?

The pics taken from lineage os stock camera are no way comparable to the stock cam pics, its like taking photos using whatsapp's camera remember how bad that look. Also there are a lot of features missing its not actually meant to be used for specifically in nord it was made as a generic app to be used in any lineage os build. It gets the work done but quality is very low. Gcam over saturates the image I don't know how people are using it in my experience gcam never gave a better results than Oxygen Os cam. Just for this reason I reverted back to Oxygen Os using MSM tools. As far as I remember OnePlus 7 series also had this problem where custom rom's camera weren't able to produce high quality images. So custom rom maker started putting original Oxygen Os cam in the rom itself I don't know how they did it, but I hope some does the same for the nord untill then custom rom for Nord can not be used as daily driver.

I'm interested too.... Anyway you know how to turn back to oxygen?
I used MSM tool guide can be found here
It wipes all the data and restore phone back to how it was originally.
You may also use this Guide https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...-stock-fastboot-roms-for-oneplus-nord.4142153
It does the same but using fastboot method it'll also wipe your data.
