  10. giveusdiretide says:

    Parrot043 GCam 8.2 works well with my Poco X3, the only problem is I am unable to load the config, I did everything correct in regards of the folders, I was also able to download the PocoX3NFCConfigfromQChannel.xml file, when I double tap near the shutter nothing is happening and I am not getting any prompts.

    I know it also did not load the config because everything is still set to default. Any thoughts on how to fix this please?

    • siba says:

      Parrot043 8.2 might not be supporting xml config files yet.
      If I am not wrong, the config guide that is added in the post is only for supported GCam mods like the NIkita GCam 7.4.

    Where can I download the xml for Poco x3nfc

  12. Andri says:

    What is the latest and maximum xml for poco x3 surya

  13. Arvind Tomar says:

    There is a problem with Video stabilization mode with “Active” and “Cinematic Pan” mode, when I switch to them from “standard” the screen goes black. The black screen goes away if you change the zoom levels but the zoom levels is not accurate “1x zoom” and “2x zoom” seems to get inversed. The app also crashes sometimes in these mode and stabilization does not seem to be working.

    I am using GCam 8.1.101 V1 by Nikita with PocoX3NFCConfigfromQChannel.xml with miui 12.0.8 Stable

    • Rajat says:

      Hello Arvind, I have tested other builds too but currently, no other build offers these modes so I guess you have to wait for the more stable release.

  17. John Russell Barrientos says:

  22. fires says:

    So whats with xml instalation in newest version GCam_5.2beta3??? “double tap near the blank space” isnt working now or what? How do i know config is active?

  23. Jonas says:

    Gcam 8.1 for poco x3 nfc have problems with time lapse and slow motion

  24. Nikoi says:

    “First create a directory in the name of Gcam (G capital letter) under the ROOT directory.”

    This line is incredibly misleading. It made me assume that the folder had to be created in the root directory of the phone (the read-only thing that contains system, etc) and sent me on a quest to find a way to do it, taking me a good half a day until I realized that it meant internal storage (even though it literally says it in the line above this one).
    So, to avoid similar confusion, I’d suggest removing the capital “ROOT”.

  25. Jean-Pierre says:

    Hi. There is no download link for (NGcam-1.7-Poco-X3-v6-asus-library.xml) .

    Please can you provide a link for that please.

    Thank you and God Bless you.

    • siba says:

      Hello @Jean-Pierre

      Okay you might not have pressed the dropdown box on the download page.
      In the list you will find the file.

      I have attached the a screenshot in the instructions field of the post.
      Please look at that to understand better.

      • Likhith Gowda says:
