Hello Brothers,

First of All a big Thanks to all of the Dev Brothers who are investing their precious time and effort for the community. We all must respect all the developers so that we can encourage them for everything they do in the development of aftermarket OS, MODs, etc.

A Big Thanks to @apascual89 for the wonderful RR Official ROM & @Sultanxda for the wonderful commits for Kernel and Device Audio + The Camera App. It made the beast get loaded with ammunition. To XDA Forum. It has always been my school to learn anything for Android.

Introduction:-

I have seen many of us praising the Manual Camera Controls specifically if the ROM has HAL3 enable completely and correctly.

Now I have seen many of us also praising the Snap Camera App built by @Sultanxda in his LineageOS 14.1 unofficial thread. He has build great kernels and great ROMs for so many devices and for our OP3/3T as well.

I tried the SnapCamera app made by him and I can say the picture quality is something that's great even in low light. So I tried porting it for all ROM with HAL3 enabled.

So, Let's end the intro and drama here -

Hereby, with all due respect, credits & thanks to @Sultanxda for the app and permission to share the same, I am presenting the -

Sultan's Snap Camera MOD

Features:-

1) Manual Shutter, ISO, Exposure Controls
2) Uncompressed Picture Size (around 7 mb, in manual mode)
3) Option to Refocus After Capture
4) HDR Working (Special Thanks to @Sultanxda. It doesn't work normally in HAL3).
5) All other default LAOS Snap Cam options.

CAUTION:-

Be Warned, this will delete your ROM's default "Snap Camera App" & "system/etc/media_profiles.xml". So please do backup before you move ahead with flashing anything.

"THIS IS NOT MEANT FOR OXYGEN OR HYDROGEN OR ANY-GEN....:p. It's specifically made and will work only on AOSP or LAOS based ROMs only. No OOS or H2O."

-: Standard Disclaimer :-
If anything happens to your device because of flashing this zip file then neither Sultan nor me or any other Dev on XDA is responsible for the same and so it completely you who decide to move ahead with it and you are the only responsible person for the damage, Tsunami, Hurricane, or any earthquakes coming to your phone. Kindly read this twice before putting the question on any dev.


Flashing Process:-

1) Download the SultanSnapCam Mod zip from the link below.
2) Copy it in your phone's root directory.
3) Reboot to TWRP Recovery.
4) Backup your ROM, System, Data, Boot, etc.
5) Install the "SultanSnapCam Mod zip" copied earlier.
6) Do read the Text Messages displayed in TWRP Screen during Flashing.
7) Wipe Dalvik/ART Cache.
8) Reboot to System, Enjoy.


"Do not forget to hit Thanks button for @Sultanxda's threads and posts. It's really a great camera involving lot's of efforts.":laugh::laugh::laugh:

SultanSnapCam MOD by SuperDroid-BOND

Kindly do let us know on which other ROMs you have used and found it working so that the same can be added to the list above.

Once again Thank You to all of you for using this MOD.

Hope you all enjoy the MOD.

Best Regards
Bond

Big thanks ?

Thank you brother.

Can you please let us know on which ROM have you tried and how's it working ?

I flashed it on Phoenix AOSP rom and it worked. :fingers-crossed:
Loved it working fine on "Cypher" OS loving thanks for bringing the mod
really wished for OOs based rom but i know it won't happen :p
but loved the work @SuperDroid-BOND

Thank you @Dhairya & @Scorpion70, for reporting the working status and for the kind words.

Still there are lot more users who have tried the MOD but not yet reported, if it's working for them or not-working, on different Custom ROMs.

So, I taking this for granted as it's working on all Custom ROMs and that's why users might not have replied yet....:victory:

Thank You @Dhairya brother. You know me from MMX A110 times.....:cowboy:

Thank you for reporting brother. Credit added in 2nd Post.

Can you please check by clearing the data of the default camera app and ask your ROM owner about HAL3, if implemented or not ?

I guess it will be solved by clearing the data and also please disable any other camera app from "system/priv-app or system/app" folders. You can install them as normal apk.

On Varun, works well with the camera back but the front crash after some photo and I find that since the installation my phone is warmer and there is a bigger memory consumption.

Mod working fine with slim rom. @SuperDroid-BOND . No issues

---------- Post added at 12:45 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:41 PM ----------

Ahh, i see :)
Is there any chance to running snapcam correctly for rom based on OxygenOS?

Nope it would never work if you want to harm your device you can try it out OP Stated that it won't work for oos base rom etc libraries are different and it will brick your device

EDIT MOD WONT WORK WITH LATEST DU BUILD THAT IS 2ND JUNE
Cheers!

Brother you're lucky, that your "Oxygen has not Changed in Poisonous Nitrogen", just kidding:laugh:.
But please don't use it on OOS as they some different modules and algorithm running for Camera.

In case, you wanna try, then please use HAL3 Enabler Zip from here - HAL3 Enabler, then flash the zip reboot to system and then try flashing the MOD, it will work.

@Dhairya,

Brother, I would request you to backup your ROM and try flashing HAL3 Enabler and please try flashing the Camera Mod on the same on DU or AOSPA. I am pretty much sure that it will work for sure but still I would request you to check n report.

Would be awaiting your feedback. Thanks for trying it on almost every ROM. Getting a supporter like you is always worth a thousand MOD.

On Varun, works well with the camera back but the front crash after some photo and I find that since the installation my phone is warmer and there is a bigger memory consumption.

The front camera FC is something we face on all LAOS ROM and it has something to be done by the team. Sorry, but can't help in that.

Phone heats up in almost all phones when you use Camera for more than 1 minutes even in Pixel or S8+ because it uses software rendering and GPU a lot more than any other app. Do not worry it will not harm.

Regards
Bond
