So I flashed CM11 M8 on my tablet. I've been running CM11 M8 on my phone for a while now. In the display section of the settings on my phone, there is a color calibration option.



My Nexus is very badly in need of color calibration, but the color calibration option is nowhere to be found in the same menu!



I tried to Google this issue but it doesn't seem like anyone is having troubles with a missing color calibration option. Can someone please help? Did I flash a bad ROM?

This problem is affecting nobody else?

It depends on the hardware, my Moto G supports color calibration as well, but the 2012 Nexus 7 doesn't (as of now), so there's no such option available.

It is truly unfortunate that Nvidia has not provided enough documentation for someone to figure this out by now. There should be a hardware level interface provided to do this for accessibility reasons. I imagine that the gamma could be adjusted at a software level before being put to the framebuffer. This would require a well engineered modification to surfaceflinger, but the result would provide color correction regardless of device.
