MSM720X Chipset Project Manager Wanted

Many, many members here at XDA are users of the Qualcomm MSM720X chipset (proc), as it’s one of the most prolific single chips HTC has ever used in its phones. The series was used in a number of different HTC models, spanning several years. Examples of these include the Touch Diamond, Touch Pro, Touch HD, Touch Pro 2, Touch Diamond 2, and the Sony Ericsson X1.

One of the benefits of having a single chipset across several devices is that often common drivers can be developed that will work across all similarly-equipped models. One of the best examples of this is the 2D/3D Driver Pack developed by NeoS2007 and his team, which makes a significant improvement in the OpenGL performance of any of the devices listed above.

The project has been going on for quite a while, and includes contributions from other devs such as Heliosdev, babijoee, Chainfire, NuShrike, Fallen Spartan, Da_G, and many others. While Neo himself still intends to participate in the continued refinement of these drivers, he’s now finding himself needing to have someone else step in and take the reigns of the project, as it continues to help improve the user experience for many of our members. Also, the upcoming release of WP7 presents the possbility of some new developmental needs. In Neo’s own words:

I would like to have someone to do some of the stuff I used to do on the project, since I don’t have the time anymore to do all that. I used to search the forum for devs and users that could help find newer files to test on the driver, as well as read up and provide info on the MSM720X chipset used in our devices. I also managed a small social group (invite only) where these people could test files internally, without getting noobs to ruin their devices with any of our files before there was an official driverpack released.


So, if you feel like you might be able to help keep this very valuable project going into the future, as it will be quite sometime before these devices disappear completely, please contact NeoS2007 directly via PM.

Neo would also like to publicly thank every developer and member that has helped contribute in some way to this project so far…it’s come a very long way and he’s very grateful for all the support you’ve given!

If you would like more information on the drivers and the project and developers behind it, visit either this thread or this one.
