Tweak for LG P500 Increases 3D Graphics Performance

3D graphics performance on Android devices has increased dramatically in the last year or so. Some newer phones have very impressive benchmark scores, and many don’t even break a sweat while playing high quality games or emulators for consoles like Playstation and Nintento 64. Some older devices such as the LG P500 don’t have that kind of power, though, and require some help.

XDA Forum Member rk00064 has ported a method originally for the Xperia X8 that will help increase 3D graphics performance. The modification process is a relatively, and involves deleting the libGLES_android.so file from the phone, flashing the modified Adreno Lib files, and giving the build.prop a few tweaks to get everything running.

The end result is a GPU that renders 3D faster than it did previously. As always, make a complete backup before attempting anything, just in case something bad happens. For now, the tweak has only been tested on a couple of ROMs, but should work for any Gingerbread based ROM.

You can find the download links, shout outs, the full instructions and the build.prop tweaks in the original thread.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

Swappa’s New App Helps You Value Your Device

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets.
