Mod Xiaomi Mi 5: Camera2 API, EIS and various fixes for AOSP / LOS

Xiaomi Mi 5

You will probably know that Xiaomi has chosen not to fully implement the Camera2 API in most of its models, including its old (but still very valid) flagship Xiaomi Mi 5. Developers have long found a way to remove this limit on Redmi Note 3 Pro, but attempts to use the same mod on Mi 5 have often led to the occurrence of various bugs.

The Camera2 API, we remind you, allow a greater control on the photographic form in manual mode and the use of full camera capabilities by third-party app. These are features that are highly requested by the community, which over time has managed to create one camera mod for Mi 5 free of bugs enabling these APIs and allowing the use of electronic image stabilization (ICE CREAM) during video shooting.
