Add 4K and 120 FPS to the Stock LG Camera App
When it comes to cell phone photography, LG certainly manages to set itself apart from other OEMs. Although their cameras lack 20+ megapixel sensors, LG’s camera application offers lots of unique functionality. One such feature allows you to record a video at 120 FPS, in order to make slow motion video capture easy.
If you own a LG phone running KitKat, you may want to take a look at the guide presented by XDA Recognized Contributor Jishnu Sur™. This guide adds 4K resolution and 120 FPS video modes to the stock LG camera application. To successfully add those functions, some basic reverse engineering skill might be required.
The process is explained clearly and images are provided, so everything should work as intended without too much effort. And put your time management fears aside, as this mod will require only 5 minutes of your precious time. If you want to side-load the modified application back to your phone, Jishnu Sur™ added a zip file with a binary and required updater-script.
To get the most experience from your LG camera application, you should visit the guide thread and start modding some APKs.
