Camera mod from HTC Amaze now available for HTC EVO 3D

Feeling a little tired of the camera on your HTC EVO 3D? Frustrated at the quality of the photos you're taking? Well, thanks to developer igor.bezkrovny, rooted and nonrooted users alike can install the camera app from the HTC Amaze 4G – the same one from the video above – which many users seem to prefer, and which also seems to produce much higher quality images.

It's worth mentioning that there are a few issues with the port, such as face and blink detection not working in 3D. There are also issues with panorama mode in 2D. And finally, if you experience any force closes while in 3D, the developer has included a separate version for you to try which should solve the problem.

If you're rooted, there are several flashable zips at the link below for you to try out, and if you aren't rooted, simply download and install the apk. If you decide to give this a try, be sure to let us know your results!

[xda-developers] Thanks, Joseph!

    Worked when I switched to the 1920 x1080 apk. Stock unrooted 3D.

  • no burst/zsl support – needs kernel support…
    (and i happen to be working on that for the 3d)

    Use a file manager to go into your downloads folder on your SD card and install from there, this is what worked for me on my Evo 4G.

    I installed this on my Evo 4G and it isntalled fine without any errors but when I open it the shutter button is not available, I can still take photos by tapping and holding but I cannot take any videos this way. Any ideas?

    I tried to use file explorer, it still wouldn’t install. Finally, I downloaded it to my laptop, put it in dropbox. Opened dropbox on my phone, opened it and installed it from there. It works! Only problem I find is it crashes when trying to do panorama. Takes beautiful 3D photos (I’ve got an EVO 3D)after reinstalling the 1920×1080 apk.

    how can I undo if I dont like it??

  • Avatar of stoneworrior

    wow really?
    settings/manage applications/all (the tab up top) select Amaze Camera and click Uninstall

  • GSM bigger sensor works great for me!
    Its cooked into a few GSM ROMs.
    most sprint EVO3Ds seem to be smaller sensor.

  • I’ve been using this for several days now…I like it much better than the stock camera. I’ve always thought that the 2D camera never lived up to its hype. This .apk helps though.

  • Avatar of Patrick

    Are there any comparison photos to really see how much better this is?
