The Pixel 2 uses most of a same hardware as a Pixel 2 XL, however, a smaller of a dual 2017 flagships has had issues with a scenery images. The becloud emanate has been around given a device was initial launched, though we started to see an escalated series of complaints about it behind in April of this year. The Pixel 2 XL doesn’t have this emanate and Google has nonetheless to pull out a repair for a community. However, a village developer has stepped adult and offering a resolution to a problem as prolonged as we have base entrance to a Pixel 2.
One of a initial reports of this emanate was submitted to Google’s Issue Tracker way behind in Nov of 2017 and given afterwards there have been over 100 comments done to a thread. The bug has been concurred by Google and has been reserved to an engineer. However, there has nonetheless to be any fixes combined to a firmware for a Pixel 2. Interestingly enough, someone famous by “av…@gmail.com” on a emanate tracker has usually offering adult a resolution to a emanate and it can be bound if we have base entrance to a device.
The submitted repair is formed off a firmware version walleye-opm4.171019.021.q1-factory-a4b25146, so you’ll expected wish to be on that chronicle if we wish to try this fix. The developer does contend that while a repair might work on other firmware versions, it might finish adult totally violation a camera. Along with an unbarred bootloader, you’ll wish to have Magisk commissioned so we can make certain it disables dm_verity/AVB2.0. The developer provides a following stairs to pull a patch to a Pixel 2.
- adb pull PATH_TO_DOWNLOADED_SO_FILE /data/local/tmp
- adb bombard mountain -o remount,rw /vendor
- adb bombard cp /data/local/tmp/camera.msm8998.patch3.so /vendor/lib/hw
- adb bombard mv /vendor/lib/hw/camera.msm8998.so /vendor/lib/hw/camera.msm8998.old.so
- adb bombard mv /vendor/lib/hw/camera.msm8998.patch3.so /vendor/lib/hw/camera.msm8998.so
- Either reboot your phone, or (p)kill /firstname.lastname@example.org
To uncover a patch worked on this person’s device, they also supposing a before and after picture so we can see how it looks.
Alternatively, if we don’t wish to enter a garland of commands, XDA Recognized Developer frap129 has combined a Magisk Module formed on a fix. It’s a lot easier to implement and we usually need Magisk to use a above method. Search for “Pixel 2 Blurry Panorama Fix” in Magisk Manager to download and implement a fix.
