Does someone know the name of the camera in the Emax? Maybe there is a working driver for it in the source code of another phone or the mainline kernel.

The source code of the TCL M2M lollipop kernel is also needed, only the camera drivers are not enough.

Has anyone not tried swapping blobs for the camera from the kitkat modules to the lollipop? Or a boot.img switch?

The lollipop version can't boot up with the kitkat boot.img, the lollipop ramdisk cannot be compiled with the kikat kernel into a new boot.img. Rplaceing the camera resources in the system partition has no effect.

Any chance to load a self compiled kernel module for the emax camera?

No source code for it.

Are you sure about that? The Emax probably ain't the only phone with this camera and the driver for its camera might be made for more than one camera model. Maybe there's already a working driver in a recent version of the linux kernel. But to find something like this, we would need the correct designation of the camera.

The source code of the emax kernel is that, what is not available.

I know. What I mean is that there could be a working driver in the source code of another phone or the vanilla Linux kernel, that we could compile for the emax as a module or whatever and load with insmod or something like that on Android.

I did abit of digging in the Projectconfig.mk in the rom download.. And here is what i found:  (there may be some errors from my typing as I couldn't copy and paste.. I'd recommend looking through the file as well.)

  1. CUSTOM_HAL_CAM_CAL = imx214otp
  2. CUSTOM_HAL_IMGSENSOR = imx214_mipi_raw ov8858qt_mipi_raw ov8858ss_mipi_raw
  3. CUSTOM_HAL_LENS = bu6429af dummy lense
  4. CUSTOM_HAL_MAIN_IMGSENSOR = imx214_mipi_raw
  5. CUSTOM_HAL_MAIN_LENSE = bu6429af
  6. CUSTOM_HAL_MSENSORLIB = mmc328x akm8975 ami304 yamaha530 mag3110 akmd8963 bmm050 mc6420 mmc3416x s62xd lsm303md hscdtd006 qmc5983 akmd09911 mc64xx bmm056 mc41xx
  7. CUSTOM_HAL_SUB_BACKUP_IMGSENSOR =ov8858ss_mipi_raw
  8. CUSTOM_HAL_SUB_IMGSENSOR = ov8858qt_mipi_raw

  9. CUSTOM_KERNEL_CAM_CAL = imx214otp
  10. CUSTOM_KERNEL_IMGSENSOR = imx214_mipi_raw ov8858qt_mipi_raw ov8858ss_mipi_raw
Copy the Code
So.. I have a feeling the sensor is either "imx214otp" or "bu6429af"

Hope this helps.
