Graphics Driver API Vulkan for Adreno 430
People, I ported the driver Vulkan API of Nexus 6P. Vulkan API works, played to test the game VG: Vulkan Beta.

The driver will work on all smartphones with Snapdragon 810.

Hi @freaky2xd
The driver is installed via TWRP Recovery and nothing more needs to be done.
If you want to install only the driver Vulkan, select vulkan.msm8994.
If you want to install only the driver Vulkan and update the OpenGL ES driver, select opengles.vulkan.msm8994

Please see You have these files:
system\lib\libvulkan.so
system\lib64\libvulkan.so
system\vendor\lib\libllvm-qgl.so
system\vendor\lib64\libllvm-qgl.so
system\vendor\lib\hw\vulkan.msm8994.so
system\vendor\lib64\hw\vulkan.msm8994.so

Ok so I got every files where you said they woud be. There's only one thing which concerns me: when I flashed the file in twrp, it said:

Code:
Warning: No file_context

And I'm not sure whether or not my graphics have been enhanced.
