Hi everyone,
Coming from a rooted and modded G2 , It was weird for me not to have 60fps video recordings as I mainly used 60fps before.
This weekend I took it upon myself to find a solution for it.

The good news:
It works, we have FHD 60fps video recording.

The bad news:
It comes with a tiny limitation - I couldn't make the wide angle camera to work with 60fps.
What does it mean?
1. Even if FHD60fps mode is chosen, wide angle will only record in 30fps.
2. If you will start recording a video using the main 16MP camera on 60fps, and during this recording you will change to the wide angle lens, from the moment you change to the wide angle the recording will use 30fps (even if you go back to the main lens after).

Note:
-I own an H850 European variant. As far as I know, it should't make any difference as long as you are rooted.
Update: Tested also on H830 (Thanks lordodin912).
I've tested the "60fps camera mod + 64Mbit UHD" and the "Restore original" zip files. "60fps camera mod" should be identical but I haven't tested it yet.
-If you encounter pink screen when HDR is on, xbenjiiman updated us that 10d fixed the issue for him. Thanks.
Important:
-If you encounter hiccuping in the video (and you probably will), turn off "steady" in the camera settings. You should see "OIS" icon instead. The hiccuping should be gone and you can enjoy smooth 60fps.

Warning:
As always, backup your device before. Just in case.
I am not responsible for any damage to your phone from using this mod.

That's it, enjoy 60fps! :)

Instructions:
-Make a backup //recommended, not a must.
-Flash the zip file in TWRP.
*No need to delete cache \ dalvik etc..
If for some reason you're having any issues with the camera, first try to delete the camera app data in the phone's settings.

*Thanks for @Pfeffernuss for pointing me to the right direction :good:

this mod have a quality jpeg set to 100% and many optimization settings or have only fhd 60 fps?

Not sure about "many" optimizations but it includes all the optimizations I know: 100% photo quality , higher bitrate, 60fps.

Keep in mind, disable "steady" (so the icon will show "OIS") setting when recording 60fps to avoid glitches.

Yup, cant use wide lens, but use this mainly cuz 60fps fhd
It seems that the wide lens hardware is not capable of 60 fps recording. I tried put the 60 fps profile in video_sub_rear_supported in camera_config.xml, it let et me choose the FHD60 in camera setting, but it just record at 30 fps

    Hi all,
    So I created new flashable zips especially for Nougat. It's late so I'll just test it tomorrow.
    1. Just image quality tweak (set all to 99%).
    2. Image quality and bitrate from 17 to 30 on 1080p and from 48 to 64 on 4k.
    3.Image quality and bitrate from 17 to 30 on 1080p and from 48 to 100 on 4k.
    *The 100 bitrate on 4k seems to drain battery faster and make phone warm..so.. it's on you if you want to try. Personally I don't need the higher bitrate but people are asking for it so why not. I'll test it tomorrow and then upload the zip files.

    No there isn't. I think I did try it before but it wouldn't work. Never tried on Nougat. I think there is no need for it anymore as the main reason for creating ot for to enable 60fps (MM didnt have 60fps at all, not even in 1080p). I can just make another one based on Nougat files to change to higher bitrate though. Some people wanted 200Mbits.

    OK then now you don't need a second app for that. In addition, you get better photo quality for photos and higher bitrate for video. Your choice of course.
