Good news for LG G3 users, xdabbeb’s camera MOD is now available as normal app (root access required) in xda-developers’ forum.

I’ve tested it and low-light performance is much better than stock camera. Take a look, hope you find it useful.

Note: This is only for stock or stock-based firmware (the version of Android that LG provides).

How to Install XCam LG on G3:

  1. Make sure you have turned on the option for "Unknown Source" under Settings > General > Security.
  2. Download the latest version of XCam while using your phone. When the download has finished, pull down your notification tray and select the XCamLG.apk file. If you can’t find it, go to "Downloads" listed in your app drawer and select the XCamLG.apk file from there. This will start the install process.
  3. If you wish to support development and gain additional functionality, please consider purchasing the XCam LG Settings app from the play store.
  4. Due to changes Google made in Android 4.4.x (KitKat), if you want to save photos to your external SD Card you will need to install and run NextApp’s SDFix (requires root access). After you restart your phone the external option should work without issue.
