As many people already know, Sony has been releasing a lot of ICS Xperia Source Code recently. Coupled with Qualcomm’s release of Adreno 2xx GPU drivers for ICS, developers of the Xperia line up have been up to their elbows in new code to play with.
Not all code is perfect, however, and for some devices, namely the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray, the GPU libraries proved problematic, causing a few bugs with the video driver with camera preview and video playback. XDA Forum Member arcatarc has taken the video driver and, well, fixed it.
The modified driver has had positive reviews from the testers so far and seems to fix all the problems with the video driver from Qualcomm. Says arcatarc:
hi all,as you know Qualcomm released a new updated driver for ICS
But the problem is that the original package causes a problem with camera preview.
I managed to resolve(?)this by using the original eglsubAndroid.so.
So..here you are,the NewAdrenoICS.zip is the originalupdate(camera bug),NewAdrenoICSSony.zip is the modded one,use OriginalAdrenoICSSony.zip to revert back to original.
The method of installing the modded driver is as easy as it gets. Simply make a backup, because you know should always make a backup before flashing anything, and flash the .zip in recovery then reboot. For those who want to check it out, you can find the download links and user feedback in arcatarc’s thread. Don’t forget to leave some feedback if you try it so others know how it will work._________
