HOW TO FIX Chainfire3d SOFTBRICK AND KEEP EVERYTHING

(I know this isn't a question, but it's a popular issue and many people seem to have it)

If you're like me, you installed Chainfire 3d, You ran the thing inside the app, it restarted your phone,
and you are just stuck at the boot screen. Don't worry, you can fix this without having to lose any of your files.
I would have killed to have a guide like this when my phone bricked instead of having to search the internet for
hours and hours trying to find a solution which was really cryptic.


1.www(DOT)youtube(DOT)com/watch?v=MVXX-YdhRU0
Follow this tutorial to install and open a program which you will use to delete the driver Chainfire installed.

2. Start your phone into recovery mode (home+volup+press+power)

3. Plug in your phone via USB cord to your computer.

4. Once you have adb opened in command prompt, type "su" (without quotes) to gain superuser acess

5. After that, you type "cd /system/lib" (Without quotes)

6. Then you type "cf3d_uninstall.sh" (without quotes)

Your phone should reboot back to exactly like it was before. All your files, apps, etc. will all be there. Now it is
time for you to uninstall that dreaded chainfire 3d app so you never have to worry about it.

Excuse me, I thought that it was required for all forums to be questions so I believed I had to specify that, so ignore it please.

Hi, I, too, bricked my android phone. However, your solution did not work for me. Typing "su" in the adb folder in cmd did not give me super user access. It just told me that su is not an internal or external command. Is there another way to get super user access? Thanks in advance

If You have CWM Recovery, then You need to go: "Mounts & storages" and mount /system
Then command: cd /system/lib will be working.

installed chainfire 3d/cant find the driver in lib
i installed chainfire 3d on my ceros motion (mtk6589,ct7008-w) it got stuck in a boot loop ,went through hell getting adb shell to come up but i got it ....my problem is that when i checked the "cd system /lib" directory there is no such file as "cfd3d_uninstall" no file name in that dir is even close so does chainfire 3d install the gpu driver under a different name?all /99% of all the file names start with "lib"

i have the same problem. when i type in "su" it says it is not recognized as an internal or external command. i'm using TWRP recovery, does that make any difference?

ok, i solved the problem. if you have TWRP, do the following (credit: pancit):

Under TWRP, click Mount, click System, then go back to Home page.
Click Advance, click File Manager, browse to /system/lib
Look for libGLESv1_CM.so and rename it to libGLESv1_CMcf.so
Then, look for libGLESv1_CM_ORG_CF3D.so and rename it to libGLESv1_CM.so
Then, click chmod and change it to 644.
Look for libGLESv2.so and rename it to libGLESv2cf.so
Then, look for libGLESv2_ORG_CF3D.so and rename it to libGLESv2.so
Then, click chmod and change it to 644.
Reboot and wait. Phone is fixed.
