Android 4.2 camera with PhotoSphere leaks for Galaxy Nexus
posted by Michael H. / Oct 31, 2012, 3:01 PM
Unlike the keyboard, which could be installed on any device, this camera app rip is only available for the Galaxy Nexus, and obviously it must be rooted. The update is a ZIP file, which can be flashed via ClockworkMod Recovery. Remember, if you flash the ZIP, it will replace the stock app, so it's a good idea to make backups before flashing.
The backup may be more necessary with this one than the keyboard, because while we had no issues with the keyboard, the camera hasn't worked for us yet and force closes when we try to open it. Others have had success with it, but so far, we're not so lucky. So, if you want to play around with the new PhotoSphere option in the new camera app, proceed with caution.

android just keeps getting more exciting and photosphere is just fantastic by what I've seen of it! And here's a reason why nexus devices will always stay golden...no matter if its old nexus or new!

I am a bit confused - is this new software going to be part of the upcoming LG Nexus 4? Or? What is confusing me is that I thought the Nexus 4 is supposed to ship with JB. But now it seems Google will be releasing v 4.2 soon. Thanks in advance for any insight(s).

fix permissions after the flash? usually fixes things right up

I tried that, but it just keeps on closing. And, of course, I didn't heed my own advice and backup first...

it works on my mom's Nexus running AOKP JB Milestone 1 and it can take PhotoSpheres but it can't view them. force close every time i try to look at what i've captured. everything else is vastly improved though. there may not be a lot of new features with 4.2 but the thing that gets me excited is that Moto is going to take another step closer to stock Android with 4.2 to incorporate these new features. Moto's quick setting pane will be obsolete, they'll need a new lock screen which was good for ICS but for JB it doesn't make sense. i want them to just make it a stock lock screen but with their icons if they have to and of course they have to add this new Camera app. :D
