Hi guys!.Managed to add OpenGL 2.0 driver support to our Heroes.Don't expect any miracles,our GPU can't support everything,that requires 2.0 graphics.The mod increases display performance,gives a high boost to Android 4.0 ROMs(turns on hardware accelerating) and maybe helps in some games.For those,who want to try it,flash attach from CWM Recovery(zip is not signed).In case if something goes wrong or you want to turn it off just delete file data/local.prop

Nice, I want to try this, especially on ICS. Have you tried it on ICS yourself?

Here's a signed one for Amon_RA users

Or something like that.On our local forum almost all testers on ICS reported,that their phones become much more fast and responsive.I tried it myself on ZeroHero,it increased scrolling speed a bit

I tried it on ICS now, and I got to say, it's a HUGE improvement! Really! Of course, it's not like VE, but for example pulling down the pulldownbar is about as smooth as it's possible. With this mod I think I can use ICS as a daily!

Thanks
