Any news on this from Asus? From any other user? Any linux guru? 
How can a board focussed on media not have powerful Picamera library type camera support? So many use cases require a great camera. Please anyone, help solve this!

Turns out that this driver seem to be in the 'staging drivers' section of the 4.12 kernel. I'll try to enable it for the rc6 release.

It only currently supports the pi camera v2.1 (with Sony IMX219)
- not the original 1.3 pi cam which uses OV5647

I compiled the Broadcom 2835 camera module, named bcm2835-v4l2 , with the v4.12.0-rc6 release of the mainline kernel patched by myself.
I also added the raspberry-firmware module, which is required by this driver.

I do not possess such hardware, so you might want to read this in order to understand how you could configure it, if everything goes fine :
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Raspberry_Pi#Raspberry_Pi_camera_module


Anyway, you can try my kernels by copying the boot usr and lib folders of the git repository into your system and adapt the bootloader to boot the /boot/zImage file just copied.

Else you can use the main script GetPatchAndCompileKernel.sh , transcribed in the README.md, to recompile a new kernel using the same exact configuration.
Note that you can change the configuration used by this script by doing :

Code:
MAKE_CONFIG=menuconfig sh GetPatchAndCompileKernel.sh


This will invoke menuconfig after applying the patches, but before starting the compilation, allowing you to modify the compiled kernel configuration.

@Myy I installed your kernel and almost got it to work, but no luck yet. What might be the issue?

How can I enable the driver? Does not seem to be running on this hardware? Anyone with luck?
BTW - the TinkerOS 2.03 version does not provide me with any /dev/video0 device.
