Xposed Makes Customizing Your Sony Xperia Camera Easy

Not too long ago, we featured a great tutorial written by XDA Themer, Developer, and Contributor Rizal Lovins that teaches Sony Xperia device owners how to tweak numerous settings of the camera app such as the audio and video bitrate, color format, and output resolution. It’s a nifty set of customization options for anyone looking for some more flexibility regarding their camera usage.

With this said, Rizal Lovins has come out with a new Xposed module to make customization of your camera app significantly easier. Known simply as the Cyber-Shot Camera Xposed Module, the module allows you to change the default resolution of the Superior Auto mode without having to decompile and recompile any APKs, as well as toggle a couple of other functions. These include:

  • Disabling burst capture mode when holding down the physical camera button
  • Disabling the sound played upon camera launch
  • Enabling the zoom function with the volume buttons

This Xposed module is only compatible with Xperia devices running the official Android 4.2.2 firmware or newer. However, it is not only restricted to the default camera app on Xperia devices, as it is also compatible with Google Camera (although not all settings are customizable).

Paired with the tutorial, the Cyber-Shot Camera Xposed Module serves as a handy tool for customizing your Xperia device’s camera. If you would like to check it out, head over to the original thread for more information.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
