The title should be quite self explanatory. When swiping up from the lock screen or when holding the camera button i rather want advanced camera to start up instead of the stock app, for obvious reasons. Now i have used Mimer to change the standard browser to firefox, but for the camera app i have no clue where to start. I searched on google, here and in various comments for an answer to no avail.

Guess there might be also others out there eho might find a solution useful. Thanks in advance for any hints how to do that, even if it includes the terminal or changing system files.

PS: It would be a nice build in feature for sfos if the user would be able to change those standard apps, instead of relying on external apps like mimer. Anyhow i am very happy with sfos, it's a great and neat mobile os!

Thanks a lot! It seems that i have thought to complicated while searching, using search phrases like "how to change standard camera app" etc; while "advanced camera" would have sufficed.
