Hi guys, there’s something you can do to help us with improving camera.

Please, sign this petition to Qualcomm, OpenMAX drivers would be really useful!

Why? We could with it run native HW video acceleration (play/record mode), HW preview and video recording in camera! Please, it’s really important!


Cheers, please, share this news everywhere, on Facebook, Google+, other forums!

We need help from everybody!

  • Stannieman says:

    What reason do they have to not release the drivers anyway? They make profit from the hardware, it’s not like giving us drivers make them sell less hardware, and they don’t have to give technical support for it if they don’t want to.

    in Russia is the largest forum of
    smartphones, there is thousands of
    users online, try it a topic of some help
    and they all subscribe 4pda.ru

    • Geffest says:

      Там следят за этим блогом. А чтобы весь 4pda проголосовал, должны подключиться админы. Как-то нереально.

      4pda community knows about this blog. But if you want all forum sign this, admins have to take part in it. It’s impossible.

  • studmix says:

    почему не реально? не все от админов зависет! у каждого есть свое мнение и не кто не в праве запрещать пользователям проголосовать там
    why not really? not all depend on the
    admins! everyone has an opinion and
    not those who have no right to forbid
    users to vote there

    • Macław says:

  • bieltv.3 says:

    Hey Maclaw! Thanks to give us the camera to our ace (in my case) I’ve already signed the petition you asked to sign, I think it’s a really good idea!

    And i’ve got one question? have you repaired the panoramic photo? I can’t see anywhere if you repaired and if it is, sceause me 🙂

  • rahul says:

    hey..maclaw..i have signed..it to this petition along with my 13 other android friends using arm v6..!!! (Y)…hope it will help you to make it easier..:) cheers!! you guys rock!! 🙂

  • OJler says:

    This petition is no longer relevant. First, ARM is not with it. Second, only Qualcomm can adapt drivers for armv6.
    Original post by vutaluk1995 :

    Эта петиция уже не актуальна. Во-первых, ARM здесь не причем. Во-вторых, ТОЛЬКО Qualcomm могут адаптировать дравера под ARMv6

    • Stannieman says:

      So then there is no problem, cause the petition asks qualcomm to compile the drivers for ARM6, which is one of your possibilities 😉

  • Vitalya says:

    But there was a “spam attak 🙂 ” to Qualcomm’s forum and one of moderators wrote something like that:
    “We’ve seen your feedback and we will think”

  • ICSACE says:

    Signed 🙂

  • Pinho says:

    News from release?

  • GiVezigo says:

    let signed over and over and over and over again

    • vishal says:

      So there is no use of any more petitions and signing them is useless now ?

      • Macław says:

        Hmmm, hard to say… Probably they can’t do anything, so it’s useless… I’ll write news about it tomorrow, when I get more details 😉

      • Stannieman says:

        They say they are “thinking” about it. Did they ever say they won’t give us anything?

        • TheWhisp says:

          Let’s hope for the best.

        • vishal says:

          bro they directly said that we r complately NOT COMPATIBLE for new omx drivers for ics

          • Stannieman says:

            Well, then they are stupid.
            Just give us the sources and we’ll decide what’s compatible and what not.

            Android is based on linux, and it’s a proven fact that linux is compatible with almost every device on the planet. Even your microwave or fridge could run it if you try hard enough. So my opinion is that it’s up to the whole community to decide what is compatible rather than 1 single company.

  • 1rodrigonike says:

    Signed! I hope Beta 9 with camera soon! 😉

  • Flash_code says:

    Oh, extinguished the last hope. I relied on Qualcomm. Apparently no luck … : (
    Sorry for my english, google sucks)

  • admiralspeedy says:

    So… seeing as how they’ve said they aren’t releasing anything, will you just release beta 9 already… or post some news or something.. You just went MIA..

    • jeslinmx says:

      maclaw never said that he needed the drivers specifically for this release. he’s working on polishing up beta 9, and just saying that if the drivers are miraculously released he might merge them into beta 9.
      however, he did say to stop pestering him for release or eta. he’s not on your payroll, so stop stressing him out.

    Hey MACLAW galaxyics site`s download not working 🙁

  • Wayfinder says:

    About petition, from author – http://habrahabr.ru/post/146213/

    Answer from Qualcomm: Unfortunately we are not able to support video codecs for ARMv6 OMX IL libs for Qualcomm’s QDSP5 on MSM7x27. The architecture of MSM7x27 cannot support OpenMax video codecs for ARMv6 OMX IL on QDSP5 running on Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).
