How to Export/Import Settings



Some Google Camera versions support export/import of config files. This feature was introduced by Namok and is used by some, but not all, developers.

Config files are stored in the /GCam/Configs/ directory, with /GCam/ being next to the DCIM, Downloads, etc, folders (see image below).

This folder needs to be created manually using a file manager (no need for root or anything like that) or automatically by exporting your config (use the option in settings menu). Config files use the .xml extension.
