-------**** Root and a writable /system partition are required! Please, read the description completely! Dont try to use reviews for communication and bugreports - they will be ignored ****-------GLTools is a custom OpenGLES driver (proxy), that is compatible with any known OpenGLES 2.0-compatible GPU + ARM or x86 processor. If you still dont understand, what this app is, the closest known analog is Chainfire3D.Features list:- Change resolution and rendering bitness in any app, even if it doesnt support that by default.- Change GPU name and enjoy enhanced graphics even on a noname low-end GPU.- Take full control over textures: now you can decompress/recompress them (even if your GPU doesnt support that texture format) and resize. Note that decompression feature is available only if youll install a plugin (internet is required to do that)- Optimize shaders on-the-fly for optimal performance (the same optimizer is used in Unity3D engine by default)- Enable MSAA or CSAA in any app to improve graphics quality (make sure that your GPU supports that)- Measure gained performance with a nice onscreen FPS counter (or you can output FPS information to Logcat if you are a pro)
GLTools is 100% safe if you have a custom recovery installed (and you didnt disable backup in GLTools install dialog), if youll find it non-working, you can just flash uninstall_gltools.zip in recovery and email me with details (or request a refund).
Failed on:- Nexus 6 @ Android 6.0.1- Stock Nvidia Shield firmwares- Some games fail to work on devices with Mail GPU even with GLTools enabled. Adreno is supported much better.
Not working by design on:- RemixOS.- Non-rooted devices.
