Non of these no. What I'm saying is that the crasher you are getting
happens during initialization of ahcsrc, which is a plugin that calls
the Camera API on the Java side. That API has been deprecated for a
while, in favour of Camera2 API.

>From the look of it (because I'm not so up-to-date with Android stack),
Android 10+ removes the deprecated API, so it crash because the API no
longer exist. Of course, Android is all about backward compat, if you
build for 9+, it will work again, and will even work on Android 10.

If for specific reason you must build for Android 10 (because you need
to use new API), then the WIP patches I have posted will be needed to
support camera. If you don't care about camera, you may just out-
compile that plugin and move on.
