The rules of communication in the subject, if you have something does not work
1) indicate what kind of firmware you have
2) what patches are installed
3) did you install custom kernels or were there any other interventions in the system
4) which camera mod was installed (preferably with a link) and how it was done

I sit in peace on miui eu 9.9.3, flashed through tvrp patchhttps://yadi.sk/d/5htN-bQIplvJXg
The cameras are working properly. On Android 10 is not in a hurry, probably 2-3 months later, if all the debug
And miui 11 while also not alter, as if the patch has not fallen off to gkama

TWRP installed, make a backup (and all), and immediately restarted the phone, the phone began to hang out after 10-15 seconds, tried to shut down - the words of eternal reboot. All through the same twrp restored through the backup system. So far, everything works fine. Actually the question - whether to completely throw off all the phone's settings to the factory, to avoid future glitches (and whether they all?), Or you can specifically do not bathe?

Good day colleagues!
Finally, and I "flew" update MIUI Android 9. 11 not yet had time to realize all the advantages and disadvantages, in addition to the smooth interface.
I came here is the question! Heard somewhere that the new green robot will be the "enclosing" API2 camera and to install G.C. will just install apk file and it will work. So it is - the truth or conjectures "experts"?

Every day the same questions. 2api switchedonlymanually.

Sorry for flooding. It is very interesting that may be in the Seabury such that no other firmware)
Already even the core set is identical to the Havoc, and still cameras are not working. Can someone answer in fact, what else can be done?

Rep: (182)
* Tony.l And 2api checked accurately included? The first thing that comes to mind

Rep: (45)
* vitasnsk , That is turned on, the camera is launched) well and checked by manual camera. All jackdaw green.
The bottom line is that if you put Seabury everything works fine without patches. I put Havoc 9 troubles
I put crdroid - troubles. And a patch of Happy tried and changed the core, cleaning caches, tried different cameras. Can libraries deal or that there may be more ..

all the more so under miui11 no ready-made solutions to run 2api all necessary benchmarks from 10 non-working version cluttered system revisions.

Not certainly in that way. I read a few days the branch since mid-August. About twice a week every new post regularly someone appears that it is impossible to activate cam2api guglkamera and does not work. And a million of the same answers, advising that the only thing to do - to fix a 0 to 1 in a single build.prop line. Three quarters of the patches, which provide links, just the same, and do, though, with a script.
Council is absolutely correct, but not complete, and therefore do not get many. Advisers on the second part of the necessary steps are silent, meaning that if they do so, then all should be well. What exactly? What must be installed magisk! )) Or, the firmware must be properly patched kernel. Here are just a lot of know how to edit build.prop without installing root or magiska. Or handles by using fastboot \ adb, or a patch of TWRP. And Ruth even as magiska, some applications did not and put it not all.
Therefore, I specify,to successfully activate cam2api to drain insertions, including MIUI 11, or need any convenient way you can fulfill two conditions. The first - in System / build.prop file in linepersist.vendor.camera.HAL3.enabled = 0replacing zero to unity, i.e., should be -
persist.vendor.camera.HAL3.enabled = 1And second, be sure to install magisk one version - 18.1 or 19.3.
Magisk 20.1 does not help everyone, like, but some works.
On custom firmware can sometimes operate without Magiska depends on the particular EEPROM core.
P.S. Sorry if wrong, rusty, that there is a rule, the core or bottles. But two of the steps are not affected. So it was from the time of Mi5, when Magisk just appeared, and for cam2api asked to put a patch or Root)
