Improve the Quality of Your Nexus 5 Photos with Simple Mod

The Google Nexus 5 is an undoubtedly great device. That said, its camera’s image quality leaves much to be desired. Google tried to improve the camera by applying some patches in Android 4.4.1, but the camera can still be improved further.

A few weeks ago, we talked about a camera mod for the LG G2 created by XDA Recognized Contributor Jishnu Sur™. This modification fixed a few issues like low video frame rate in low lighting, as well as a few other minor issues. Now, the modified version of the camera app is available for the Nexus 5, and the results are impressive.

Full HD movies can now use 20 Mbit, minimizing compression artifacts. Also, recorded audio has been improved, and according to developer it has no noise cancellation disturbance. This modification can’t be considered stable just yet, as there are a few things not working yet, like the front facing camera. Despite this, the overall improvement thanks to this camera app is significant. Of course, you can always revert to stock if you’d like. All you need to do is to flash a provided update.zip in your favorite recovery. To use this modification, your bootloader must be unlocked and your device must be rooted.

If you wish to improve your Nexus 5’s image quality, you should definitely visit the modification thread and give this mod a try.

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
