How to install Google Camera mod for Motorola devices?
The above Google Camera app can be easily installed as a normal APK. However, as we know, the Moto G5 series devices do not have much RAM (memory) and the Gcam features are heavy on memory. So you may find difficulties or lag running some of the features such a Night Sight. Here, we will show you some recommended setting and how to lower memory usage and use the Night Sight features using Kernel Adiutor (for rooted users).
Bug fixes and general settings:
Go to settings – > BSG Mod Settings -> FIX -> Black Level Front Camera = 16 (enable it, and restart camera app)
Front camera green tint fix: Settings -> BSG MOD Settings and Green Tint Fix -> TINT FIX -> Green Tint on Front Camera Fix (Turn it on and restart camera app fully)
Night Sight Fix for Moto G5 Plus (with 2 GB RAM): (needs root)
- Download and install the Gcam Mod from above.
- Install Kernel Adiutor from Play Store.
- Open it and go to low memory killer.
- Change the values according to the following pics. Also the Kernel Adiutor settings.
