KitKat (AND NOT LOLLIPOP):
These are based on the hammerhead/deb/flo/mako developer drivers from HERE.

Version: OpenGL ES 3.0 [email protected] [email protected] JHICKS_AU_LINUX_ANDROID_KK_3.5.04.04.02.003.389+PA TCH[ES]_msm8974_KK_3.5__release_ENGG ([email protected])

What I did:
I copied the deb-flo-mako firmware folder ingredients into the hammerhead ones to have all firmwares updated which are included in the stock system folder, too and moved the firmware folder from /vendor to /etc. I modified the updater script, too to be sure it finds the right system drive and mounts it nicely.

Download: HERE
CHANGELOG

Lollipop (AND NOT KITKAT):

EDIT: Link taken down for now due to HW+ problems @ video playback!

New Lollipop driver v95 from Moto G extracted by SeannyM: OFFLINE for now!

Version: OpenGL ES 3.0 [email protected] [email protected] ([email protected])
AnTuTu before: ~41200ish and after ~42600ish

HOWTO:
Flash via Mobile Odin or TWRP/CWM.

WARNING:
NO GUARANTEE THAT IT WON'T KILL YOUR PHONE!!! Mine still works and that better than ever, but if it does, your fault! ^^
MAKE A BACKUP IF YOU FEAR A DEAD PHONE!
KNOX 0x1!!!!

My intention is/was to fix several bugs in their drivers to get Dolphin Emulator run nicely.
It became way better already, but is still badly distorted on KitKat.
The added Lollipop driver fixes most hiccups. Looks really nice now.

I can try it, but still have my thoughts about it, because of the port-ism of it. Will try when the green light for this has been lit. Still why don't we massively contact the dolphin developer?

sonicadvance1 from the Dolphin dev team recommended to always update the Adreno drivers, because they are buggy as hell in OpenGL ES 3 matters. He filed a dozen bug reports over at Qualcomm's and some even were fixed by now. Some bigger ones causing the bad distortion are still there, but it starts to progress well. These are NO Dolphin bugs, these are evil misbehaviors in the drivers against the OpenGL ES 3 standards causing flipped framebuffers and way more funny things. The drivers work and are 100% compatible to the Adreno we use.

Video from sonicadvance1 explaining the steps to do.

So how do we install it? By manually move the files over to the system file or is it a flashable zip file? O.o

Flashable ZIP file. Use Mobile Odin OTA/ZIP File mode or a custom recovery.

gonna test some stuff now

ok so some quick testing done and... no difference in game performance in fpse, espxe and reicast. same games, same speed issues and glitches.
example. silent hill 1 on fpse or espxe, bar in the beginning of the game, especially fight with a bat. same framedrops.
so not sure if there is any benefit.
thanks anyway.
