Default Hardware Acceleration

We might get Hardware acceleration on ICS yet. Most of you might remember reading a tweet from LG Mexico announcing the ICS update was canceled for the Optimus 2x, which is required to get our hardware drivers to get working video camera, and hardware acceleration on ICS Roms on the G2x. Well apparently this was just region specific, as Lg Singapore just posted on their facebook page that the update is still on for the 2x! Take a look at it here: https://www.facebook.com/LGMobileSin...51098010297707
HTC One
ROM: CleanROM

T-Mobile G2x - (No longer have access to)

The only device similar enough to ours to get the video drivers from is the Optimus 2x, which is basically our phone without T-Mobile Branding andwith LG's UI. The G2x isn't getting official ICS, but if the Optimus 2X, does, the devs have said that it's almost certain we will be able to use the same drivers.

Yes, getting ICS from the P990 to the P999 shouldn't be a big problem.
But we first need a kernel source, which usually drops in a couple days after an official ICS release.

This is a probably a stupid question, but is SU660 to P990/999 the same story?

I believe the SU660 will get is working blobs for HW Acceleration, because the SU660 has the same chipset as the P990/P999. The SU660 though has some different hardware to get things to work though (such as physical home buttons, etc). The SU660 is just a piece of the puzzle, not the whole puzzle completed.

I believe you are right, we will have the binary blobs for the Nvidia drivers, but the kernels are different.
