  1. Hey thanks. used to work but after oneplus 9 pro update to android 12 it only sees 2 lenses and trying to launch “photo sphere” it crashes.

    • Hi Lou,

      You can use the GCam 7.1 port if you want to use the auxiliary camera. Although it is not stable, will add the more compatible GCam version for OxygenOS 12 after testing some other ports.
