Do not be discouraged guys This is what I got from my email =======================================Nick LambourneTo : me=======================================Hi Arby,Firstly, apologizes. I have been travelling to Taiwan and then took a few weeks holiday. I am back from today however and will get onto the forums and update you!Thanks,Nick.
Hi all,Firstly, I'm very happy to see such interest in this range of handsets. Its a great phone for the features / price and Broadcom is proud to be associated with it.The baseband being asked about here is the BCM21553: You are not allowed to view links.
Register or LoginThe graphics accelerator within this device is known as the VideoCore IV GPU. Like many companies that develop graphics hardware, we can configure our GPU for different performance levels and you will find other devices that contain this technology in the market.The BCM2763 is an SoC that appears in other handsets, and is unrelated to the Galaxy Y. It does however contain a VideoCore IV GPU hardware accelerator, but with a different configuration.What I would like to request initially are details about what this project is doing so we can study and understand what is going on.Specific questions are:* What is the Android revision of your project?* A link to the src repository to checkout + build instructions so we can study the existing solution* A list of problems found with using the existing Gingerbread binaries on this updated firmware build that you have foundMany thanks,Nick.
Hi,Got it.So its only Gingerbread for now - should make this simpler to resolve!I understand there appears to be some incompatibility at run time with cyanogen mod when copying over the proprietary blobs from the device into the build to enable the GPU. In particular, libUI is somehow incompatible with the shipping binaries for some reason.Off hand, I can not image what the issue is, but Broadcom will download this GB version and take a look.Can you help with a few details please?* What is the "lunch" combo used to build the Galaxy Y from this branch?* What are the flashing instructions to update the device after building the image?* Please share the ROM image you built as well so we can check to see we can replicate the issueMany thanks,Nick.
