      it’s replaced with google camera. if you flash the stock gapps package it will replace the old camera with new google camera. or you can download google camera from play store

        Good you’re pointing this out. I wondered why I didn’t have any camare crashes, yet, but now i know it’s because I always flash gapps after upgrading anyway.Is android usable without gapps anyway? 😛
        You can’t even visit google play for installing app without..
