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.

Vulkan driver is installed via TWRP Recovery.

Last Updated:
2017-03-22. Driver update to ver.26.24.512 api 1.0.20 (N2G47H/OPP1.170223.012).
2017-02-13. Removed the driver, leading to artifacts (post).
2017-02-06. The first version of the driver 41.436.2416 (N4F26J).

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

@felipeacydc, for firmware need unlocked bootloader and TWRP Recovery. With the help of flashtool can't install the driver.
