Camera Unlocker for the OnePlus 8 Series and OnePlus 9R
A Magisk module for the OnePlus 8 series (8, Pro, T) and the OnePlus 9R. It fixes/enables/improves the following:
- Removes the 1/30s shutter speed cap for third party camera apps, allowing GCam to use up to 1/8s in ZSL mode.
- Enables 48MP RAW10 capture support on GCam, both on Main (8/8T/9R) and Ultra Wide (8 Pro).
- Adds Multi Frame Noise Reduction support for the Macro/Monochrome (8/8T) and Ultra Wide (8 Pro).
- Adds support for Long Exposure capture in Open Camera (up to 5s).
- Allows access to the auxiliary cameras indepedently of the OOS version or GCam package used.
- Magisk (tested with v25).
- OxygenOS 11 or 12, or custom ROMs based on OOS 11 or 12’s firmware.
Magisk modules are available for OxygenOS and custom ROMs based on:
- OxygenOS 12 Firmware: OnePlus_8_Series_9R_Camera_Unlocker_OOS12.zip
- OxygenOS 11 Firmware: OnePlus_8_Series_9R_Camera_Unlocker_OOS11.zip
For all phones:
- Install the module in the Magisk app and restart the phone.
If you want to use 48MP, you also need to:
- Install the following GCam app and load the provided config.
Download and install Arnova’s 8.1 GCam (any of the packages/apks are fine):
Also download the config file and the noise model used by this config (you need to download the 2 files):
- Config for 8, 8T, 9R: JeusXML-8-8T-9R-Arnova-48MP-V8.xml
- Config for 8 Pro: JeusXML-8-Pro-Arnova-48MP-V8.xml
- Noise modeller (all devices): AVG_IMX586_noise.c
⚠️ Both the config and noise modeller need to be moved to the configs folder at
/GCam/Configs8/. If the noise modeller file isn’t in the folder, GCam will display a dark display after loading the config.
ℹ️ To load the config, allow GCam to manage all files and then double click the black area around the shutter button, select the config, and load it.
- Currently, 48MP only seems to work on Arnova’s GCam 8.1.
- If you don’t want to use this version as your main GCam app, you can keep both installed and only Arnova’s GCam for 48MP. If you want to only use 1 app for both 12/48MP, you can switch between both modes by using config files (the one linked above for 48MP and another for 12MP).
- 48MP works better in well lit areas (eg: outdoors during the day). The binned resolution (12MP in this case) performs better in low light/hasher conditions.
- Processing high resolution frames is resource intensive. You may experience some lag, heat, and higher battery drain. Very long exposures (eg: astrophotography) may fail.
- If you want to create a config from scratch or try with other mods, you need to select the 48MP stream config for the supported cameras (or manually input the steam id: 40980). You also need to enable “super res” and toggle
camera.pck_force_jpegin the dev settings.
