[EOL] HWC Patch for LineageOS 14.1 for T0LTE [EXPERIMENTAL]



Code:
#include "std_disclaimer.h"
/*
 * Your warranty is void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */
What is this about?

This patch fixes hardware composer. It is a library that allows Android to use display hardware to render multiple 'layers' on screen, such as the status bar, the wallpaper, and the home screen. By default, Android uses the GPU to manage this rendering, which is considerably less efficient than using the dedicated display hardware.
Simply said - this should your phone smoother and with a little better battery life/

This is work by @forkbomb444 and you can find more information in the original thread for i9300. I've just adapted the work to t0lte and released it in the form of a patch.

Update: Maintaining this has become a slouch. One last build up. Support dropped for now.




Important!
1. Will work only for the official LineageOS rom for T0LTE. No other roms. No other devices.
2. If you flashed this patch do NOT report bugs in the official thread. It's an experimental patch so bugs are to be expected!
3. Will overwrite a lot so you'll be dependent on me for the updates
4. It will overwrite boot.img as well. You'll need to reflash magisk/xposed.
5. To remove the patch just dirty flash official build and it'll be gone.
6. When you update rom you'll need to flash this again.


Known bugs?
Certain users (not all) are reporting bootloop.

Sounds interesting. Is it intended/hoped that this will eventually make it into the official lineage release?
Do you have any gut feeling on what sort of battery life improvement it gives?

I tried Lineage in March this year but found a few things that seemed a bit flaky so went back to stock firmware.
However I installed the latest Lineage build last night and it seems very solid now - but does seem to be using battery a lot faster than stock - which I noted last time. Could be a rogue app of course.

Hey, thanks for leaving a reply.
We can't include this into official before we make sure all the major bugs get squashed. It's just not ready yet. But yeah, you could say it's planned.

About battery life, this should improve it, but I doubt it'll be anything significant. Worse battery life than stock could be due to fact that Android 7 is more demanding, could be tradeoff for performance. I don't know, use the rom as is if it suits you I guess. ¯\_ (ツ) _/¯
Cheers

I was referring to this HWC patch as I'm getting a bootloop when applying this patch.
