3. After the installation, open the file manager and locate the XML file. Now, move the XML file and paste it into the gcam -> configs folder on your internal storage.

Note: If you are unable to find the gcam folder, create one and rename it as “gcam” and then create a configs folder inside.


4. Now, open Google Camera and double-tap anywhere on the black bar around the shutter button. A dialog box will appear. Here, select the XML config file that you just moved into the internal storage from the drop-down menu. It should read “wyroczen_rn8pro_3.xml”. Finally, tap on the “Restore” button.
