.
Last year, some developers from Broadcom decided to give our CM developers a hand with pre-built test drivers that could not be modified and it didn't seem to work out that well.


Just yesterday, Broadcom have announced at their blog that they have decided to release the full source of the OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0 driver stack for the Broadcom VideoCore® IV 3D graphics subsystem used in the BCM21553 3G integrated baseband SoC.

Experienced programmers can:
  • Rebuild the BCM21553 Android 4.0 graphics stack from source
  • Develop fully open drivers for other VideoCore devices, including the Raspberry Pi’s BCM2835 and the BCM21654 (a low-cost 3G integrated baseband for emerging markets).
  • Gain insight into the internal operation of VideoCore for performance tuning purposes
  • Write general-purpose code leveraging the GPU compute capability on VideoCore devices

This is basically what the developers have been waiting to see for pretty much two years now and it has finally happened. The question now is, will the Galaxy Y actually get a stable CyanogenMod or another AOSP rom? These drivers appear to be for the AOSP ICS source which means that we could actually see a working CyanogenMod9 build in the near future.

Unfortunately for us, this happened quite late as many people have given up hope long ago and possibly ditched their Galaxy Y for something better. Still, there are developers out there that may give this a try and release a well working build for the Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360.

Pretty much everyone at xda-developers forums at the moment is excited because of the news and I am guessing you are all excited now as well because this is something that we have dreamed for ever since the beginning of Galaxy Y's custom rom development.

Stay tuned and be sure to check the blog daily for any updates regarding this recent revolutionary news.
