Hello Polaris users,

Here's what you've all been waiting for: The driver in .cab form!

Released on www.htcclassaction.org. (Thanks guys!)

Download here: P3D driver for Polaris

You can test the driver with Lights.exe. If that works, you're good.

As most of you know, some chefs have made roms which already hold these drivers.

Some chefs are:

Epimazzo
Swtos
UDK
Itje
Bepe
M-Amine

You can give any feedback on the workings of the driver in their roms and thus, keeping the development thread clean for development feedback only.

Best Regards

Polaris 3D Driver Project Development Team

General Requirements for the driver cabfile:

Here are some samples made by Team P3D of 3D drivers working on a Polaris:

Before it worked good:

Exclamation General FAQ + News
I've seen a few questions about this driver that come back each and everytime. So here's a small FAQ for you to read:

Q: What do these 3D drivers do?
A: These drivers enable you to display 3D graphics on your MSM7200 device.

Q: Are these solely for MSM7200 devices?
A: Yes, since the files used only work with the MSM7200 chipset. And not even ALL MSM7200 chipsets.

Q: So, which devices are supported?
A: Currently only 3 devices: the Kaiser, Polaris and Nike. There MAY be more in the future though.

Q: Does this driver improve performance in TomTom, IGO, Video's, Camera, etc?
A: Currently, all this driver does is 3D. TomTom, IGO, videos and such don't use the 3D engine. Most applications on your device are 2D currently, otherwise it wouldn't have worked before.

Q: So, will it improve 2D in the future?
A: Probably yes, see this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=435190

Q: Can i use this driver on my Asus/Gigabyte/Samsung/LG/Etc.?
A: No. These drivers are for the earlier mentioned devices from HTC only. you can, of course try how far you can go. (but remember that we are NOT in any way responsible for any damage to your device!!)

I will add more Q&A later. Hope this sums most questions up.

NEWS:
Once the driver gets a public release, all questions regarding the Team Polaris 3D drivers should be asked in this thread.
Team Polaris 3D wants to keep the original thread clean for development.

secondly, DO NOT PM US INDIVIDUALLY! We are happy to answer your questions here.

10-06-08: Added M-Amine's 2.0 RTM rom & itje's Touch-IT Lite v1.0 WWE

10-07-08: Project Touchflo3D got a breakthrough in porting it to Polaris. Read here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=430718

Maybe an idea to give more specific information about the rom you are using so the p3d team can see on which roms it works or not.
