    The app opens but shows only black screen. If I press or go to the options screen (where we can choose between night site or panorama) the camera works and I am able to see the picture.

    • Hi Saiyed,

      Delete the app and install it again, then Go to Settings > BSG Mod > Input Model > Pixel XL for Rear & Front.
      Now close the app and open again, Again open the Settings > BSG Mod > Saturation > Back Camera > set Highlight sat to 2.2 and Shadow sat to 2.6 (for best results). In the case of front camera set Highlight set to 2.0.
