A new update for this fix is available here.
About the fix:
- It modifies the front camera library to enable portrait mode, hdr+, raw, etc, and reduces the "dot pattern" issue.
- Work and research was done by people like defcomg/savitar, Arnova8G2, txx1219, and others.
- Android versions: Android 8 (use v3 or higher for Android 9).
- Requirements: TWRP recovery or a rooted phone.
- The front camera resolution is reduced to 4MP (OnePlus bug).
- Breaks the front unlock feature (use Tasker to avoid this issue).
- Suggestion: Perform a TWRP backup before applying the fix in case something goes wrong.
- All versions: v1, 2, 2.2, 2.3, 2.3u, 2.4, 2.5, 3, 4, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.41, 5.0.
