This Adreno GPU update is ONLY designed to work on ALL Qualcomm S3 ARM7 Devices running ICS.
Greetings, I have been on XDA for a long time and I hope that you all can benefit from this patch as we have over at the Amaze Forums. Here is a link to my Original Thread and evidence of this patch's success for our Qualcomm S3 Adreno 220 GPU devices running ICS.
We have proven that this driver Patch has doubled our GPU throughput for 2D and 3D rendering.
I did not get a screenshot of the results before flashing this, however I have seen dramatically improved result on my Quadrant 3D scores with "Force 2D GPU rendering" UNCHECKED in the Setting->Develop Options Menu of this ICS Release. With this option checked I have seen improvements on both 2D and 3D. Although results are slightly degraded for 3D from post update the 2D results have doubled in value.
Quadrant results were obtained immediately after restart to avoid any other processes interfering with the results.
AFTER "Adreno ICS Update" Screenshot 2D Rendering NOT checked.
AFTER "Adreno ICS Update" Screenshot 2D Rendering CHECKED.
If someone would post a screenshot of the before Quadrant result I would gladly add it to this post. Please only post results Immediately after restart for conformity.

Has anyone given this a shot with De-Sensed or Virtuous?
im about to give it a shot
I loaded up Virtuous latest version and gave it a shot
nothing else installed on the phone but the cleanly installed rom and quadrant/antutu
quadrant showed improvement but antutu did not show any improvement
first 2 are without forced 2d rendering
last 2 are with forced 2d rendering
HTC has been quite good about releasing expedient Android system … more
