Download a custom mod (tweak) to enable some hidden features of stock MIUI camera app for Redmi 4X (codename Santoni). This tweak enables advanced camera settings to give users a full manual control over the built-in camera app. This is a really simple and easiest solution to have a DSLR-like camera app without having to install a third-party app like Google Camera, FV-5, and so on. The best part, this mod requires no root access and hence you don’t need either Magisk or SuperSU.
This mod tweak is just a script to unlock the basically-already-there features. It is not an app itself. Basically, some advanced features have already been planted on the stock MIUI camera app but for some unknown reasons, the Xiaomi Developers opted to keep these features hidden.
- HDR (High Dynamic Range).
- A full-size Panorama.
- Camera Torch capture.
- LED Color Notification.
- Quick Snap Mode.
- Age Stamp in Photo (Front Camera).
- Mirror Front Camera.
- Audio Focus Mode in Video Recording.
- Square Mode (Only works on some ROMs).
- Burst Shoot Count One Time = 100.
- Slow Motion Video Recording (Set video quality to SD or HD & need good light conditions).
- Fully Working Manual Mode (Exposure Time, Focus, White Balance, ISO) without losing the Scene mode.

How to install? Simply download the zip file into your phone and flash it through TWRP recovery. Please note that flashing custom recovery requires you to first unlock your phone bootloader. The full guide on how to do this is available here.
Again, please be aware that only Redmi 4X (codename Santoni) is compatible with this mod. Flashing it on a wrong device will get your device bricked.
Furthermore, if for some reasons you could not manage to use and to take the full advantage of this mod and you then decide to remove it, please use the following uninstaller script. Download and flash it through TWRP as well. Once flashed, the stock camera app will reset and will have the default features.
