Download Android 4.2 Camera with Photo Sphere Panorama Feature

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean bits are slowly making its way online. Yesterday, the Android 4.2 Keyboard was leaked and today we have the Camera app with Photo Sphere and Panorama all working perfectly fine. For those who have been living under a rock, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is the latest Android update by Google, which they are calling as the new Jelly Bean flavour.

An APK of the Android 4.2 Camera app has been posted over at XDA Developers which you can install over your existing Camera/Gallery app in your phone. Installation of this app is really simple. If you have ClockworkMod recovery installed, you can simply flash the ZIP file on your phone.

Step 7 – In ClockworkMod recovery, scroll down to “flash zip from SD card” and press the Power button to select it.

Step 9 –Now using your volume keys, navigate to 4.2Camera_t01.zip file and select it using the Power button. Confirm the installation on the next screen and the installation procedure should start now.

Step 10 – After the installation completes, go to “+++++Go Back” and reboot the phone by selecting “reboot system now” from the recovery menu. The phone will boot now and it might take about 5 minutes to boot on your first time. So, please wait.
