FP4 Stock Camera app on /e/ or Iodé

tried it again on iodè. Before I tried it on /e/
The app starts, asks for permissions and then crashed.

On both systems the same

Do you have any logs? It would be interesting to see why exactly it fails!

no. how?

This is the FPCamera.apk for anyone who wants to test it


Using logcat for example.

Like this (just substitute Magisk for FPCamera :slightly_smiling_face: )

We discussed this a few weeks ago, IIRC correctly it also depends on Google Photos, otherwise it just crashes if you try to open the preview.

Edit: Too slow…
If you are on Linux you can also just use adb exec-out 'logcat -c && logcat' > logcat.txt

Hi rar(),
are you sure this is the apk for FP4?
I see that it can´t use the the wide Angle Cam. Only the "normal cam and selfi cam are used.

Yes, I extracted it from my FP4 like Error described in her first reply. Maybe it’s not the latest version, I think I pulled it right after I got my phone.

yes, it is the right app

You can try the one I uploaded, should be the newest one. Haven’t checked the hashes, might be identical :man_shrugging:

It’s the same file, same hash.

This is the logcat when I tried to open FPCamera the first time on iodéOS: https://pastebin.com/raw/Pkw2HbMa


thanks everybody for your effort!
Yes these both apks seems to be the same.
Funfact: If I klick the apps Icon it crashes. When i klick and hold the Icon I can see three different Options. If I klick one of the Options (pro,video,selfie) the app don´t crash and I can use it. But the app looks very different as in FPOS and I can´t see the Button for the wide angle Cam.


You’re right, seems like only photo mode of back camera doesn’t work and I don’t have Google Photos or com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox installed.

Google Search just seems to be a soft dependency, haven’t managed to get it to crash with that removed. Google Photos however will have to be patched out for this to become widely usable.

Strange that the main activity crashes but the other ones don’t :thinking:

Vince From iodéOs Team give a magisk module of the FP stock rom photo app and a permissiver on XDA Link


On 18th Feb another user on XDA remarked:

Thank you for this Magisk module. However, the ultrawide camera does not work as intended: I can see the picture from this lens, but the camera does not take or save pictures. After I press the shutter button, nothing happens.

and Vince replied:

There are some problems indeed. I removed the module, not usable yet.

So we’ll probably have to be patient for a little while longer.

The feature list at iodè is very long and the stock camera is not one of the first positions on the Prio list.
So, I think you have to be patient for a very long time. :wink:

After some time passed and nothing new happened, I would like to ask.

Are there some plans to port or modify the native camera app so it can be used in other ROMs? The only way to use wide lens on /e/OS ROM in this moment is openCamera, which gives me disgusting results almost all the time. GCam ports aren’t solution as well as they lack any support of wide lens and same as openCamera, they got no support for focusing sensor. No 48Mp support neither in both apps.

I hope I’m not stuck with google-bloated stock rom for life, If I ever wanted to use my hardware freely. But so far it seems so.


I was thinking that as well. Would probably the best if someone could create a flashable ZIP so that it could just be added to any custom ROMs.

Or did someone try if it’s enough to just pull the apk from the official rom and side load it?

Sadly, there were some efforts to make Magisk package work so it can be used on rooted devices at least, but with no success. :frowning:

App didn’t work properly and some features caused it to crash. It seems it is linked into something system-level because instaling all dependecies didn’t help neither.

I can’t remember guy’s name to give him credits for at least trying, think his name was Frank from IodéOS team.

Nope, Vince was the name. All credits to him. Magisk package with broken camera app has been removed since, I still have it, if you want it.
