    Where can I download the xml for Poco x3nfc

  2. Andri says:

    What is the latest and maximum xml for poco x3 surya

  3. 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.

  5. Tim says:

    Hi, where exactly is the xml file for GCAM 8.1? I can’t find the link to it..
    Also the slowmotion in this version is super blurry on my poco x3 :/.

  6. Sanjeev says:

    Why doesn’t the face smoother work?

  7. John Russell Barrientos says:

    No ultrawide(0.6x) option here like the stock camera?

  8. Don says:

    It seems that when I opened the slow motion the gcam keeps crashing

  9. Reynaldo says:

    Saludos cómo se activa los 64MP del Poco X3 NFC ya que en los detalles de la foto dice 16MP solamente y no encuentro una forma de cambiarlo a 64MP. Del resto excelente. Gracias por el aporte

  10. André says:

    Muito obrigado por toda disponibilidade em nos ajudar hoje e sempre!

  11. punkara says:

    config file, arnova7. 4.104_pocoX3_v.2.xml,compatible with the version of 8.1?

  12. 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?

  13. Jonas says:

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

  14. 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”.

  15. Jean-Pierre says:

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