Use Google Camera on Zenfone Max Pro Without Root: Here’s How

Although the Asus Zenfone Max Pro may be among the greatest smartphones in its class, it does have one significant flaw that keeps it from being the segment leader: a disappointing camera. Although the hardware appears to be highly good on paper, it is said that the device’s dual-camera combination falls short of its Redmi Note 5 Pro, its largest opponent in the sector, because of the less-than-impressive software.

The highly powerful Google Camera app may now be installed on the smartphone without rooting it due to an XDA senior member who claims to have discovered a way to enable the Camera2API on the Asus mid-ranger without changing the build.prop in the system partition.

Shakalaca claims that a fastboot command that enables Camera HAL 3 on the Zenfone Max Pro can activate the Camera2API. Since the method has been proved to be effective by numerous senior members of XDA, it probably performs as promised.

How to Enable Camera2API on Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1

  • Enable Developer mode on the phone by tapping the Build Number option seven times in quick succession by going over to Settings > About Phone.
  • Once Developer Options is enabled, toggle on the USB debugging option.
  • Now power off the phone and then enter Fastboot mode by pressing and holding the Power and Volume Down buttons together for a few seconds.
  • On a PC (Windows/Linux/Mac), install the necessary drivers and ADB files for Android.
  • Now connect the phone to the PC and launch a Powershell Window / Command prompt / terminal based on your OS.
  • Make sure that it points to the same directory where the fastboot binary is located, and then enter the following command:
