CyanogenMod 12 Beta 7 For Sony Xperia L Brings New Camera HAL, Enhanced Security And Bunch Of Other Fixes

Camera problems on the Sony Xperia L for Android L have existed since Beta 3 proving to be a potential barrier to get the official nightlies started. The reason was the old camera HAL which crashes due to the vast changes in bionic with 5.0. There was a need to compile a new camera HAL with new code to be able to run on Android 5.0. This beta brings the new Camera HAL to Sony Xperia L. [adblockingdetector id=”2″] Device specific changelog:
– New Camera HAL from latest Lollipop CAF sources – Camera Optimizations included: *. Instant Noise Reduction, Low Power Mode, Automatic Scene Detection, Automatic Anti-Banding config. *. Image Quality raised to 95%, Support for Face Detection (Experimental) (Compatible app needed) – SELinux Enforced! – Hello Secured Android! – Bluetooth Audio Fixed – Finally – Bluetooth Tethering Fixed – Video Recording using AAC codec fixed
Known bugs: Native HDR is broken with the new HAL atm. You can use third party apps for that. Super-Note: SELinux is now enforced, this tightens the security layer and due to which some apps may stop working because they need to be updated for Lollipop. If some app you feel is broken and was working previously, mention me on that post so I can confirm after which you can report to the concerned developer. [adblockingdetector id=”2″] I’m not writing CM specific changelog, although there are no major updates there are many changes like Settings have been reorganized and as such which you will discover on your own. We have almost reached to a point where we can enable the official nightlies but I prefer waiting some more time till I can verify that everything is in it’s place.

    May be that’s why the terminal emulator app didn’t came after the flashing
