Download Camera NX V6 mod for Nexus 2015 Phones, Base on Google Camera v4.4.019 from Android 8.0 DP4

It has been a week after the latest Google Camera 4.4.019 jumped on the stage, and now we have new Camera NX V6 for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, you may ask why for taking so long time to update, well, Google has applied the Proguard to their camera app, which can may the app running 10%-30% faster while making the smali code hard to understand and modify,

for example, I can track those function name and device name in the past time, know what is the code controlling, then unlock the feature which is disabled by default, I can see the API function like isNexus6P(), isNexus5X(), ?->frameRate(), now I just got those Lbnp->bZ, Lbnp->dZ meaningless words, finally I managed this new mod, though it still have a little bug, but most features was present.

You may want to check out What’s new inside the Google Camera 4.4, in the new 4.4.019 build, Google has made some changes and fixed some bugs, like it support the Android 8.0’s new adaptive icon feature, HDR process stuck bug was fixed, I did not dig deep, the string “pixel camera” and “Nexus 2017” showed in the code. Google Camera 4.4.019 contain two configuration for a same Pixel 2017 / Nexus 2017 device, the “Pixel 2017 Zsl Hdr configuration” and “Nexus 2017 Hw Zsl HDR+ configuration”, I think google is planning to release a very powerful Nexus device, which is support the hardware HDR+ feature, might be a enhanced HDR process.

Camera NX is a mod based of Google Camera, it’s made for bringing Pixel phones exclusive features to Nexus 2015 phones, unlocked features:
For Nexus 5X/6P:
– ZSL HDR+ shooting
– Smart Burst (disable Hybrid Burst now, should I enable it again? )
– 60FPS video recording Ready. (you need to unlock the 30FPS limitation set by the system, thanks to defcomg see tips link. )
Higher video Bit Rate Back to default settings.
– New icon. (no need to enable round icon this time)

For Nexus 5X
– ZSL Normal Shooting
– 240 fps Slow-motion video
– Nexus 6P HDR+ profile (No ZSL HDR+ version)

Known issue: if you try to delete the photos which is under HDR process, you will get a FC notice, just a notice, the camera will continue to work as normal.

Requirements
– ARM64 SoC.
– Android 7.1+ (As Android 7.1.x was officially released, I drop the compatible of Android 7.0)
– tested with Android 8.0 and Android 7.1 use Nexus 5X.

Tips:
– If you like the Burst more than ZSL HDR+, choose the No ZSL version, more stable.
– To turn off ZSL HDR+, you need to set HDR+ off.
– Custom roms getting black screen? try Open Gapps Stock version.
60FPS mod for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, some said works fine on Android O.

Notice before start downloading: for old version users, you need to uninstall the Camera NX before install this new version, as I lost the signature files which was used to sign the apk, I create another signature for signing the app, Android will refused to update the app with different signatures.

Update 07/31 V6.0.1:
1. Shortcut access fixed.
2. Quick fix for EIS with 60fps fc issue (N), Android O seems does not have this problem.

    What tool are you using? I get crashes with apktool when rebuilding the app.

    • temp512

      Never mind

  • Chris H

    What about for the plain old nexus 6?

  • Ζουράμπι Μελάτζε

    Nice!

  • Does nothing but FC, previous version works just fine.

    • Mine FC’s but after uninstalling, rebooting, and installing the new one it is just fine. I hope this can help.

  • Csaba Benedek

    Do you think you can make this app run on different phone than the nexus/pixel line?
    For example an earlier version (camera-4-1-mod) could be tricked to run on Moto Z.

  • flipsticks

    Thanks for the work you do Charles, love the CameraNX app!

  • SE

    Yay, thanks Charles for keeping us in stream with Nexus devices.
    Now we commence testing and comparing how HDR+ ver .160 performs as I think the worst its implementation was in GC 4.3
    Just one bug found but as I remember I faced it on usual google camera ver. 4.4.012 from DP3. Bug is the video stucks on some frame but sound continues to play. Cant define what is the reason, maybe its custom ROM related problem, maybe not?

  • I would like to ask you guys, did N6P can record H265 video now?

  • Phil

    Thank you for updating this 🙂
    May I ask why Hybrid Burst is disabled now and Higher Video Bitrate strikethrough?

    • Paul_Werner

      I’d like to know the same. Hybrid burst with zero shutter lag was the best in earlier versions

    • Ah, I just consider Hybrid Burst did not perform well on N5X / 6P.
      Back to default video bitrate, as you can set it up through modify media profile in system, and videos eats too much storage while did not have effective quality improvement.

      • Phil

        Perfectly reasonable explanation, thank you. I believe you know most about this Stuff and so it makes sense 🙂

      • naresh

        Can u please enable the hybrid burst? it was awesome on my nexus 6p. As for the bitrate back to default, i’m on the same page with u. tq 🙂
