Camera 2 API Mod for Redmi 5 and 5 Plus

Download the flash-able .zip file of the Camera 2 API enabler tweak for Xiaomi Redmi 5 (Rosy) and Redmi 5 Plus (Vince). This camera mod is not the camera app itself. Instead, this will enable Android’s built-in camera 2 API that is usually disabled by default. This is required for users who really concern about mobile photography. Once enabled, users can install advanced camera app with manual features like manual focus, raw support, manual white balance, and manual exposure time “shutter speed”.

This mod is basically the first essential part for those who want to use custom camera app. Without enabling Camera 2 API, basically, a user won’t be able to install apps like Google Camera or FV-5.


You can grab the file from the download link below.

How to install?

  1. Flash a custom recovery like TWRP on your phone (the bootloader needs to be unlocked first)
  2. Reboot into recovery (adb reboot recovery) or (shutdown, hold volume up + power))
  3. Select the attached file from your SD card and flash it
  4. Reboot into system
  5. Install a camera app that supports all the DSLR-like manual control features (Google cameras, FV-5, etc)

You can then install Camera 2 Probe app to test and to detect the newly enabled super ability of your phone camera. Enjoy!
