FP4 Stock Camera app on /e/ or Iodé

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.

I moved your discussion to an already existing one, mainly covering the same.

Linking this thread as it might provide some Details why other Apps cant use wide angle etc


Thank you for doing so, I just noticed the post you have linked as well. As far as I understand, the problem is on Camera2API side and there’s nothing we can do in the moment.

Could be fair IMHO (pun intended) to let me freely access my hardware I did pay €649 for.


Just found out OnePlus does. Only 48Mp option is locked in API in case of Nord 5G. Which is over €200 cheaper. And they sell lot more parts incl. outer frame. So the phone doesn’t have to be sent to you if aluminium frame of case gets damage like my did.

IDK, seem pretty much more >>>fair<<< to me.

Can you upload that Magisk package somwhere? I’d like to see what the dependencies of the APK are and try to install it on LineageOS.

I think camera vendor blobs were updated with the last 2 official releases and I’m not sure if this has been tested recently.

Hi can you provide a link to this cheaper phonethat has more ‘parts’ available, and by the way

‘sent to you’

?? this is just a user forum not the Fairphone company or support :slight_smile:

I’v uploaded the Magisk module here.
So far I haven’t been able to get it to work on Android 12 even with a frankensteined on Google Photos app, but I also haven’t had the time to thoroughly look through the logs for some hints :thinking:

The fair in Fairphone stands for fairtrade, you are paying more so others are treated fairly.
That’s one of the main reasons this company exists. OnePlus might be cheaper but somebody else is paying the price for that.


Okay, that’s what I misunderstood. I though it also stands for being fair to your customers and letting them use their hardware freely. Not just their employes.

There’s honestly no reason for me to pay for something fairtrade if the product doesn’t do it’s job and it’s features are restricted.

PS: Don’t get me wrong. Fairtrade was the main reason for me to get FairPhone in the first place. But HW restrictions and their customer support are no-go for me.
