Post [Q] Color profiling with CyanogenMod

It's not a secret that AMOLED screens like the one installed in S4 mini have wider color range than IPS what often results in over-saturated images which were prepared for standard sRGB range.
Stock S4 mini ROM has means to change color profiles. So the question is - if this functionality also included/planned to be included in S4 mini's CM and kernel CM uses for this model? Could profiles be anyhow adjusted?

Really glad to hear it, Arco! Thanks!

Could you please share a bit about mechanism behind that? Is it really some driver/kernel-space functionality or it is being implemented on higher levels?

Haven't really looked at it yet, but I think both kernel and user space changes are needed.

Hi arco68,
I'm also interested in a solution for the over-saturation problem of the amoled of my S4 mini. Before that I'll keep my stock rom that has the profiles included.

In the meanwhile any progress on that?

Default S4 Mini oversatured display - solution!

Finally I found something that really works: S4minisettings.apk

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...558702&page=11

look for F4k's post


This build is for cm 11 (4.4 kitkat). The only thing is you have to manually put it to system/apps/ folder and then correct the permissions to

rw,r,r (644)

otherwise it doesn't work.


To get really natural colors instead of the oversatured ones you have to set mode to "natural" and temperature to "normal". Sometimes you have to switch the display off and on to get the settings applied.



Great thanks to F4k!
