Hi all,

Have jumped ship a few times to custom ROMs and have came back each time due to limitations of the cameras.

Yes there is Gcam. However the video isn't right. Slow motion is non existent (at least to the level that you'd call usable)

Third party apps don't seem to cut it either.

The Nokia APK does a great job at stills and video but again no slow motion and you cannot use 48MP.

So my question...

Does anyone know what is required to in normal circumstances, get the OnePlus camera to run?

Libs and framwork, etc? And can we obtain them in some way? To give them a whirl against a custom ROM? Even if it's just partial functionality, it would give us a starting point.

Cheers

My previous OnePlus phones never has successful story about this too.
May be some Devs know why this is not possible.

I'd never say impossible, just think that the ever changing firmware and updates to ROMs may cause too much grief, plus because (I think) that the framework is required it may be a pain in the backside

Hi @dladz .

I saw you mentioned about the Nokia Cam. Is that works on live bokeh? If yes, could you please tell me what is the cam version?
Thanks 👍
Sorry mate I've actually deleted it. But iirc the live bokeh did work.

It was a link on XDA, haven't got the APK no more as I didn't need it anymore.

Have a Google for it won't be hard to find.


Edit: here you go


Slow motion didn't work but if you choose slow motion, it will do a great 60fps video

I don't have an OP device. So can't do anything about it

No worries man, not you're responsibility..

It's definitely needed but without a device I'd imagine it'd be a colossal ballache.

If you were interested in giving it a whirl and needed testers..

I think I and many many others would be more than happy to assist.

PS: I say this with no idea of what's involved, so please don't judge me.

I think even with the volume of people now currently using the device, a bounty might even be a real possibility.

Dunno?

Anyway thanks for reading and reaching out all the same. 👍

This is one of those things that stops me from leaving OOS on my OP8Pro.

OnePlus should release the Camera app on play store, like Google does. The gcam from play store just works on Pixel devices with LOS18.1 without any glitches.

Couldn't agree more..

Strange that a company can go from actually advertising usage of twrp to this in a few short years.

Bounty program can be good i think. Are there any xda moderators to talk about that? If that thing okay, I think we can collect some money with paypal/cryptos to deliver the first dev who figure things out.
Yea could be good.

Usually people pledge money to get it done.. then pay up then it's fulfilled

If 50 people pledge a few quid each then there's a few hundred £££s to get it done.

Only issue I can foresee would be the terms of maintaining it .

I'm not sure if it works for one it'll work for another.

    There is an awesome dev called @AEonAX in Xiaomi devices. S/he managed to port stock Xiaomi camera to custom AOSP based ROMs. Maybe s/he can figure out the things if has a chance/free time to do that.
