With Ice Cream Sandwich quickly spreading across Android devices like wildfire right now, new drivers for the Adreno 220 GPU found in the Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 have surfaced. These drivers can potentially lead to improved 2D UI rendering performance in ICS and, of course, increased benchmark scores.

XDA Senior Member gjcamp has produced recovery-flashable update.zip files that work across multiple devices with this hardware. Every phone running the Adreno 220 from the HTC Evo 3D to a couple variants of the Samsung Galaxy S2 may be able to benefit from these drivers, and there are currently seven different devices for which gjcamp has created threads. In his words:

…I have seen dramatically improved result on my Quadrant 3D scores with “Force 2D GPU rendering” UNCHECKED in the Setting->Develop Options Menu of this ICS Release. With this option checked I have seen improvements on both 2D and 3D. Although results are slightly degraded for 3D from post update the 2D results have doubled in value.

I can confirm this myself on my own Evo 3D that Quadrant scores were improved with these new drivers. Similarly, the 2D UI rendering does seem to be smoother, but this is always hard to measure objectively. As anyone who flashes bleeding edge tech to their phone knows, there could be side effects.

You can get started by visiting the threads in their respective sections listed below:

Even if your device isn’t explicitly, the drivers may potentially work on your device, provided that you’re running an Adreno 220 GPU and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. However, if your phone’s not on the list, be extra careful and be sure to have a working backup to revert to.

Nothing beats the smell of development early in the morning. The reason I say this is because it looks like as devices keep popping up on xda, they follow the same path as everything that finds a home here: show up, get rooted, get modded. This seems to be the case for one of the latest additions to the TMobile family, the Amaze 4G. We just learned that XDA Recognized Developer xboarder56 along with the help of a few other devs, has successfully perm rooted the device. At this point in time, the dev has only put out the rooting script, which seems to be a 1 touch root type of deal, but there is no eta for the recovery image that is currently being worked on. There are, however, various other things that you can do with a rooted device, most of which include playing with apps that the system would otherwise not allow you to use.
If you have an Amaze and would like to take this for a spin, please be sure that you leave feedback for the dev, particularly if you come across bugs.

Hi,

guys this is a One Click Perm Root tool and its verified working. Even after reboot no more bricks like the old one Crack eyes made. It will root your phone and it will stay rooted after multipule reboots. Enjoy

Well, we are starting the last quarter of this year and the holiday season is just around the corner. As such, new and rather impressive devices are coming out or at least have been announced to arrive just in time for the Christmas season. Starting off the celebrations, we have HTC who just released the HTC Ruby, also known as the Amaze 4G, running on the T-Mobile network. If you thought that the Sensation was an interesting device to have, wait until you feast your eyes on this one. The processor that it carries is the same as the Sensation XE (dual core 1.5 GHz processor), 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of built in storage, a beautiful 4.3 inch qHD screen, and full HD video output. The battery capacity is at a hearty 1750 mAh, which will give you a bit more juice when you are blazing through the web with 4G.

Well, we certainly hope to see good things coming out of this little monster here. If you already have one and would like to share your findings with others, please do so in the device’s own forum.

You can visit the new Amaze 4G forums on xda right here.
