Now the time has come after 3 years of fighting with the camera on the note 2, note 3 and note 4 trying to make it have unlimited recording limits (until space is full) is now POSSIBLE!

I have spent the last couple hours digging through and pinpointing the 1 thing that cuts off the 4k recording at 5 minutes and you are now able to record up to 1 hour in 4K. I may try to push it more later but this is a good start.

Instructions:
THIS IS NOT A FLASHABLE ZIP SO DO NOT FLASH THRU RECOVERY
1. Download the zip and extract the apk SamsungCamera4.apk
2. Download es file explorer and browse to system/apps/SamsungCamera4/
3. Make a backup of everything in that folder then delete everything in the folder
4. Copy over the SamsungCamera4.apk that you downloaded to system/apps/
4a. (In V2) copy the media_profiles.xml to /system/etc and overwrite
5. set permissions to rw-r-r on the file
6. Reboot your phone
7. Once rebooted check to see if your camera works, once up look for KRM in the Camera icon to the top of the record button
8. If you see KRM then you have installed the mod successfully

If you have any questions please ask. I have recorded up to 35 minutes so far but ran out of space so please let me know if you can fully record to 1 hour. While this mod does unlock the full recording limits of 4k samsung has generously unlocked it already for 1920x1080 and below. That being said please do not use this mod for any illegal activity,

Also it will split each 4GB file into separate pieces- usually around 8 minutes-9 minutes

DOWNLOADS:

V3
V2

so this is the note5 camera (from note5 rom)?
if yes, can you tell me if HDR mode works? if the picture taken with hdr mode is really hdr, not normal picture (like on note4 & s6 ports)?

It is not working on SM-N9005. The Camera App force closes. And instructions on how to install are not clear. There is no SamsungCamera4 folder, only SamsungCamera2 folder. And In /system there is no folder called "apps" only "app"

Thank you for your work!

Questions:

1. Is this cam .apk from Note 5 ROM (if so, which ROM/version)?
2. Does the HDR mode work (tested!) (does it take normal and HDR exposure and not just a normal photo. All previous Note 3 cam ports to Note 3 don't have HDR working)?
4. Does it have high fps modes (120 fps)?
5. Does it have 100% JPEG quality save option or default setting?

THanks!

It Does not Work on my NOTE 4 SM-N910C

Hey! I am excited about this MOD for my camera app, but I am not getting any good results. I have rooted my Note 4 (SM-N910C) and have tried every single version of our files: v1, v2, v3, v3.2, etc... What could it be wrong? Did it have work at any time on any phone?

Thanks a lot Bro!

    This mod splits the file every 8 to 9 mins? Then how can we record the continuous 4k video till one hour..?

    u cant, there is a 4gb file limitation, it cuts the file every 4gb but now u dont have to stop recording then have to click record again

    Im gonna say all of them, not 100% sure but the worst itll do is just not work which then u just need to copy your old camera back. I modified a exynos version but it seems to work with snapdragon and exynos also
