Was amazed the G4 wouldn't record video's at 60fps so decided to alter some files to make it work.

After flashing the mod using TWRP you will have another FullHD resolution mode but this time at 60fps, see screenie:



When selecting this mode the framerate will jump from 30 to 60 (in sufficient light):

I also increased the bitrate and the photo quality is upped to 100% percent as well. Note: both will increase the file sizes by a large amount! Decreased the threshold where you can still take flash shots from 15% to 5% battery.

There's also a version with a much higher bitrate (from 30Mb/sec to 64Mb/sec) when using the UHD camera. Do note, this increases the filesize when making movies by a *large* amount :cool:

When not satisfied with the mod simply flash the stock settings file and all will be reverted :good:

Any 4k and 1080p video samples from this?

The 1080p 60fps results are of very low quality imho. Mega loss of detail, even with a much higher bitrate setting. Almost as if the camera/phone can't keep up with the data, but that can't be the case as the UHD 56Mbps results are razor sharp.

Played a lot with various settings but systematically the 1080p 30fps videos contained much more detail (like for example in foliage). For now the 1080p 60fps is only handy for moving objects but for detailed stuff I would still recommend the 1080p 30fps mode.

Will make some quick videos from out of my window here and upload them to Mega. Will post today when there's time :)

    I was able to get this working on my Sprint G4 with root and a locked bootloader. here's a quick write up.

    1. Download the zip you want in the OP.
    2. Extract the two files in the system/etc folder from the zip file to your phone.
    3. Download a root file Browser, I used Root Explorer.
    4. Backup the camera_config.xml and media_profiles.xml files in the system/etc/ folder.
    5. Paste the new files into the system/etc/ folder.
    6. Change permission of both files to rw-r--r--
    7. Reboot

    Here's an updated version with working front facing camera recording in 3rd party apps. It's based on the T-Mobile 10N Rom. It should work on any newer base. It should be flashable but I created the script and zip while in the car and on my phone. Lol either way the files inside are good to go.

    Lol you're welcome.
    @Rydah805 - Will it be for V10 or V10C?
    Based on T-Mobile's 10N. Shouldwe work on newer roms with slow-Mo moved into the "Mode" tab.

    Anybody have any idea what causes the break of the front camera recording in 3rd party apps? I've ported the mod over to the newer base where slow-mo is in a new tab and all works but no front cam recording in snapchat is starting to bug me... Guess I can 1 by 1 mod the files until it stops working.

    EDIT:
    Off the bat, it's definitely something in media_profiles.xml causing front facing recording to fail in 3rd party apps. I've increased the image quality to 100% so far and it works... Also have 60fps enabled and all works. Now to up the bit rates...

    EDIT 2:
    So from my previous edit, i just modded the 1080p profile to 60 fps and no front cam recording in 3rd party apps... This may be the problem.

    EDIT 3:
    Found the error... I successfully raised the image quality to 100% and raised the bitrates and still have the front cam recording. changing the fps from 30 to 60 in the media_profiles.xml kills it. Now to find a fix...

    EDIT 4:
    Think I got it all sorted out. Got working 60fps and working front facing camera in 3rd party apps. Will post a flashable tonight.
