Thumbs up Request for App: Toggle Switch for All GPU Rendering

Some report display is much sharper with better contrast like official stock reader in a modded ROM posted here forcing all rendering to be done on the GPU. However I'm happy with my set up and some report other unrelated problems with that ROM and in any case I want to keep my ROM. I asked in that thread if a little app just forcing all rendering to GPU could be made but there was no reply.

Many of us would love it if anyone could make an apk that will only do one function:
Force all rendering to be done on the GPU
.

Maybe also with a toggle switch for on/off preferably?

Or even a CWM install file if a switch toggle app is too difficult and has to be a permanent fix.

Forcing all rendering will free up CPU more too for a faster system.

Any one interested in taking up the challenge?

In file /system/lib/egl/egl.cfg
Delete the line
0 0 android

You can do it via ADB.
Remember to mount /system with R/W.

You can also use any terminal emulator app or any file explorer with root support (rhytm software) + any text editor.

You really need an app for that?

Thanks osowiecki for your reply..

I use Total Commander which is like the old NC file manager. Easy dual pane transfer with Windows ftp etc. and easy atts management, editing etc. too:

I deleted the line: 0 0 android, from egl.cfg, seems a bit clearer but not sure. Wanted an app for quick reboots to compare.

In the thread you linked jam_dev says:

(I suspect doing this forces h/w rendering, needs more testing)
h/w can mean CPU as well as GPU but lets assume he means GPU rendering as opposed to s/w rendering using CPU.

But the issue remains that he's not sure that line deletion forces all rendering to h/w? Any ideas?

Thanks again.
