Google Camera Portrait Mode (Front & Rear Work) for Miui 9/7.0 Devices[ROOT]

Google Camera Portrait Mode Ported to some Non-Google Devices running Android Nougat

There are a few contenders for best smartphone camera of 2017, and many would argue that the Google Pixel 2 & 2 XL were the best mobile shooters. That’s thanks in large part to the phone’s exceptional combination of camera hardware with Google’s prowess in image processing software as seen by their famous HDR+ technology. Ports of Google Camera with the HDR+ technology have been shown to dramatically improve the picture quality of budget phones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and flagship phones like the Essential Phone. The Pixel 2 camera experience is largely an iterative improvement over the first generation Pixel, though it adds some polish with features such as Motion Photos, Face Retouching, and lastly Portrait Mode.
The Pixel 2’s Portrait Mode is perhaps its best new feature due to how the algorithm can produce beautiful photos that focus on one or more persons. While Pixel 2 camera features such as Motion Photos, Face Retouching, and even the new AR Stickers have been ported, it was thought that Portrait Mode would remain a Pixel 2 exclusive for quite some time. Fortunately, XDA Senior Member Charles_l proved that Portrait Mode could be forced to work on other devices, starting with the first generation Google Pixel & Pixel XLNexus 6P, and Nexus 5X. Thanks to this preliminary work, other developers have joined in to port the Portrait Mode feature over to some non-Google devices running Android Nougat

Google Camera  Portrait Mode on Non-Google Devices

XDA Senior Member Arnova8G2, best known for his work on porting a Snapdragon-optimized version of Google Camera app, has modified Charles_l’s Camera NX 7.3 app to work on non-Google devices. 

It seems like many 64-bit devices running Android Nougat are compatible with Arnova8G2’s port of the Pixel 2 Portrait Mode feature. The best part of this mod is that it doesn’t require root to function! The only caveat for now is that it only works with the device’s rear camera & Front Camera

Recently developer Scrubber (4pda) released most stable version of GCam till date. But unfortunately it requires Android 7.1+ to work with.
Which means it can't be used with any of MIUI ROM.

So here I come, I modified the APK uploaded by Scrubber to minimum api level 24(earlier 25)
Now Everything is working perfectly without any fc (except slow motion)
