Question SDKs or any examples to run with Chainfire's drivers
Hi Guys,

does anyone of you develop OpenGL ES applications for HD2? I just cannot get them to run with Chainfire's drivers. I've tried linking my demo app to QualComm's libraries (libEGL.lib/libGLESv2.lib) as well as Imaginative's - with no success, eglInitialise still fails.

If you can help me with that, I owe you a beer!

Well, I am working on a new version that should solve a few issues and bugs, and I hope will fix the issue. Running into a bit of snag though, so I might not be able to release fully what I want. I'll have more details later.

I will however need links to apps that don't run, so I can personally test them.

mykhailo.saienko, try private messaging me the links to those PowerVR demos, and the compiled (if possible with source) versions of what you built yourself.

I am assuming here the PowerVR demos DO run if you are using the standard HD2 drivers

Also let me know which ROM + version you are running.

Lightbulb New 2.60 BETA version - call for testers !
Update 21.07.10: Updated to version 2.60. Restart your testing! See post #3 for a changelog. A collection of test apps is now also linked from post #1.


! For this beta version, please do not redistribute or cook !

! Do NOT try this version on a ROM that has an older version of the driver cooked in !


What, why, how ?!
The driver didn't work well on some Snapdragon devices (the LG Expo, for example), and on some ROMs also didn't work very well, according to some. There were also a few other minor bugs fixed.

Some of the causes of the problems would require me to create a seperate patch for all those different instances (for example for the LG Expo). Obviously I want to have only a single patch that works on all devices! This BETA version is an attempt to make that a reality.

It works on the programs, games, and devices I have tested it on so far, namely OGLCubes, Electopia, GLBenchmark, Manila/TF3D/Sense(/whatever), on a stock (NLD) HD2.

This BETA is meant for people who know what they are doing, and use a few GL apps/games. Also specifically for LG Expo, TG-01 and S200/F1 users, and those who have problems with the older version on non-stock ROMs.

What to test
- First of all, test if all your apps and games still work. If an app/game does not start at all anymore, go into CF3DConf and set the application's driver to "Original". That should let it start again. If not, let me know.

- See if you notice any performance improvements (or the opposite) on your GL apps/games.

- This is an intermediate version. If this works properly, there will be a "final". For those who are not happy "playing" with their devices, wait for that "final" (which will probably be called 3.0).

- Be aware that your device may not boot if you install this patch. Be warned! If this is the case, please do let me know

- This is the very first release of this BETA and nobody has tested it but me, so there's a fair chance it will be updated in a few days after the first massive problems are reported

- Manually uninstall all previous versions of the patch
- Install the beta version INSTALL ON DEVICE, NOT ON STORAGE CARD !!
- Reboot the device
- Report what I stated above and any information/test-reports you think may be useful !

v2.50: 1474

2.GLBenchmark HD ES 1.1

Before the beta patch @998Mhz
1. 3.7fps
2. 9.6fps

After applying the beta patch @ 998Mhz
1. 10.0 fps
2. 54.4fps
