RICOH THETA cameras run Android inside the camera. You can use standard development tools such Android Studio and the standard Android SDK from Google. It’s also common to use editors such as VS Code. Both Kotlin and Java are supported. Internal sensors such as accelerometer, gyroscope and compass can be accessed from inside the plug-in.
The free tool Vysor can display a virtual screen from the V or Z1 models. It will also mirror the THETA X screen. This is great to change things like permissions or to kill the built-in CameraService.
THETA X Permissions
Community member Laszlo Vargo pointed out that the app settings for THETA X can be accessed with
adb shell am start -a android.settings.SETTINGS
This is useful to give your plug-in network and storage access.
