Today on 2nd birthday of RPi, Broadcomm have released full documentation & complete source release of graphics stack for BCM21533 under 3-clause BSD License.
Here's link : www(dot)raspberrypi(dot)org/archives/6299

BCM21533 GPU Documentation : www(dot)broadcom(dot)com/docs/support/videocore/VideoCoreIV-AG100-R(dot)pdf
BCM21533 GPU GFX Stack : www(dot)broadcom(dot)com/docs/support/videocore/Brcm_Android_ICS_Graphics_Stack(dot)tar(dot)gz

Can we expect support from CMTeam for our little device now ?
