This Adreno GPU update is ONLY designed to work on 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.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1631223

I have only tested this on my T-Mobile HTC Amaze (Qualcomm S3 Adreno 220 GPU) and have not experienced any issues.

I have created this Recovery Flashable Patch to Install the Qualcomm Updated Adreno Drivers on the "Official Ruby ICS" release.

Qualcomm Developers Website

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.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Required
Root Required
  1. Pre Requisites fulfilled (Root) (ICS)
  2. Install "Adreno ICS Update" to the root of your SD Card
  3. Toggle Signature Verification in Recovery
  4. Install zip via Recovery
  5. Fix Permissions
  6. Reboot
  7. ENJOI!!!

Thank you dhkr234 for the flashable zip framework.

Please post any other tested configurations and I will add them for other community members reference.

The usual warning goes here. I'm not responsible for what you do, or how you execute, use this at your own risk!

Anyone tried it yet?
coindroid changelog yesterday for 1.5.0 states:

'Updated Adreno GPU binaries.'

so i'm thinking they may be already included.

I am not sure if coindroid added these binaries to his ROM. Ask him.

This is for all who have ICS without the binaries pre-baked and would like to add these for performance results.

Thank you,

Ehi guys this new update worked flawlessly for me.

Before the upgrade I had 2697 (2D 490, 3D 2195) with quadrant, after the update 3608 (2D 495, 3D 2220).

As you can see the improvement is not so incredible in graphics, but CPU has increased from 3231 to 6549 that's incredible! Also MEM increased around 600 points.

I'm running ARHD 6.6.3 XE with Sebastian FM 1.4.1 kernel.

Anyone experienced the same?
