Hello Xiaomian!

What's up? I hope you are well by the grace of Allah. Alhamdulillah, I'm also fine.

We know that many of Xiaomi users are using Gcam on their device. Because it offers more benefits than our phone's stock camera. Example: Better low light shots, better portraits, 360 pictures and much more.

But the main problem is, after updating Android 9.0 (Pie) on Redmi Note 5 Ai/Pro Gcam isn't working. So, how we can enable it? It's very simple. Just follow the old method only change BuildProp command line.

Warning: This tutorial is only for Whyred. Use the latest custom recovery and must back up your all data. Do anything at your own risk.

● Unlock Bootloader
● Custom Recovery (For Pie)
● Magisk
● Mi USB Driver
● ADB Driver

● Now boot your device into the fastboot mode. For this power of your device and press Power and Volume Down button (-) at the same time. If your device makes any problem on this then first Power Off your device then hold press Power Button then connect the USB cable, I hope this trick will be work.
