    This will be a dedicated thread for the different Google Camera ports working for the Xiaomi Mi A1 since other threads are not being updated by their OPs and I will try to maintain this one like the OnePlus 6 Google Camera Port thread. These are the most stable GCam ports for our device and I'll be updating this thread each time a new port is available.

    Here some sample for comparison,
    App: MGC_6.1.013_MiMAX2_V1b_A8.1+
    Rom: Stock 8.1

    Darker ones are shot with HDR+ enhanced mode and Brighter ones are with Night Mode

    The arnova pixel3 version works a bit slow/laggy for me, also no live picture in night mode, although it works/produces the image. BSG version works better, except for the annoying "hexagon" popup.

    Side question - which is the best/most stable gcam version with ZSL/motion stills/slomo? I used a pretty old one, I wonder if there was any progress to this day - will try the ones in 1st post tomorrow.

    p.s is there any way of having several camera apps installed? Usually it wants to overwrite the current one, although id like to test a few ones parallel.

    cheers,
    j.

    Appreciate the feedback guys! Keep them coming! :)

    Did not test this with the BSG mod I installed, but the front camera is green. And it says "hexagon failed" when taking a portrait or night photo but it still seems to work. Could you edit the post and add this? Thanks

    The 625 is weak and zsl and other features would be too much for it.
    Some launchers can rename apps. App cloners should also be able do it.

    Telecam doesn't work in that version right?

      It took me full week to test Gcam mods and my conclusion is that bsg-test-8.1 is the most stable on Pie, with no green tint on front camera (except on portrait mode) and auto focus works as it should (except on night mode, sometimes become unstable). Although, HDR isn't working at all.

      https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/gcamera/bsg-test-8.1.apk

      Other mods that have stable auto focus:

      https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/gcamera/GCam5.1.018-Arnova8G2-V1.7.apk
      https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/MGC_5.2.022.apk
      https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/gcamera/MGC_6.1.021_MI8_V1d_fu24-01g.apk

      I hope it works out for you.

      Dear Developers, I implore you to resolve the Gcam autofocus problem in Mi A1 that's been bugging many owners of the device ever since mi A1 upgraded to pie 9.
      Please rescue our devices from the atrocious clutches of pie 9 and revive Gcam.

      Regards

      Please help me understand the difference between 2 versions.

      One is v6.1 and the other is v5.2. And as we know the v5.2 camera version doesn't have the night sight feature. Is there any other feature missing in it?

      Yep... That's why I use both versions together.

      In 6.1 you get night sight, and a better HDR quality overall, but only useable in 9MPX (otherwise autofocus doesn't work in pie). And you lack slow motion, HDR on front camera, full resolution pics.

      With v5 you have full 12,6 MPx with autofocus and HDR (using portrait mode and setting HDR enhanced on/disable zom/disable smartburst), also slow motion camera works with sound (Not even the stock cam app has sound in slowmo), and selfie/front camera works with HDR (if you use selfie cam you'll notice v6 takes either blurry or greenish pics in front cam). This version has a scoll manual focus also, so you can take HDR enhanced/macro/etc setting focus depth manually.

      Its up to you, if you are ok with a 9MPx cam with great HDR/low light quality and you dont use selfie/slow motion, v6 is enough. In my case, I just use the v5 to take bigger pics in good light / exterior conditions, and playing with slow mo, but my main choice is v6.

      On a side note, there is a version of v6 with scroll focus partially working (last san1ty one for poco), but its too much work for me having to set the focus manually for each pic. There is also a v6 with slow motion cam working, if you feel you really need that... back_rider for nokia 7+. But as I said HDR and Night pics quality is worst.

      If you guys wanna use Gcam Pixel 3 without green selfie tint, use this: https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/gcamera/GCam_6.1.021_N7P_test1.3.apk
      Just disable HDR when taking selfies.

      Also, I've adapted the Camera Patch module for Pie and 4.9 kernel-based custom ROMs. Look for it in the Magisk repo.
