Qualcomm have finally released a full version of their Adreno 200/300 drivers.

Quote:

This release contains the user-mode driver binaries for Qualcomm's Adreno 3xx and 2xx GPU on Google Android 4.2 Jelly Bean MR1. It has been tested with the CAF release A8064AAAAANLGD133402.1 and M8960AAAAANLGD230306.1. Supports any Adreno 2xx and 3xx GPU on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean MR1.

These drivers are provided direct from Qualcomm's Adreno Development website found here: https://developer.qualcomm.com/mobil...-and-resources

I unfortunately cannot test them as I do not have a JB ROM installed currently, can someone please test and let me know if they work.

Note: Don't forget to do a Nandroid backup first!


Download (Standard Package from Qualcomm)
See attached.

2XX Series Only - (Extra files removed from previous ZIP)

Testing
Confirmed NOT working on GB - Android boots but framerate is extremely low. (Tested just in case)
Seems to not be working on JB - CosmicDan may be able to explain as to why. (Also, see http://forum.xda-developers.com/report.php?p=35427866 - Thanks nickholtus)
ICS is currently Untested.

Unknown.

The JB drivers released for the Adreno 2XX series last year were only 'Beta' drivers and came with the following disclaimer from Qualcomm:
Quote:

This release contains an early sample of the user-mode driver binaries for Qualcomm's Adreno 2xx GPU on Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It has been tested with the CAF release M8960AAAAANLGD105210.1 and supports any Adreno 2xx GPU on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This release is intended only for developers that work on Jelly Bean bring-up work. It is an early release sample which will be replaced by a new driver binary in the future.

Since then (Yesterday), they have released their full version of the drivers which have been tested on two versions of JB as explained above and worked perfectly.

I, nor anyone else yet, has done any testing with these drivers on JB. We don't even know if they work for us yet, so I cant really say what the benefits are.

As the OP states, these require testing.

I think what's preventing booting is extra files in the zip.

Why opening a new thread for untested work?? That even doesn't work. Dan already said we can't replace the libs for Andreno in jellybean

They're official libs from Qualcomm, why would they not be tested?

The last driver update found here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1828902

Wasn't initially tested, until people tried it.

Without opening a thread, how else would I have pointed out to people that Qualcomm had released new libs? I can hardly PM everyone who owns a Play. I can test it myself but I'd rather not reflash a Kernel and a ROM, just to test something that I'm not going to use.

So instead, I've told people there's a new release. And created an update.zip for people to test the drivers themselves.

I must have missed this - Why would we be unable to update the Adreno libs for JB?

Looks like it doesn't work anyway... But for those who want to try it, I'll remove the extra files from the update.zip and repost.

Edit: Link to ZIP with files removed. Again, test at your own risk.
