    I was hoping someone might be able to give me some pointers on using the PowerVR SGX530 in Android Marshmallow and newer.

    I have a Linux Kernel 3.10 with the SGX530 drivers integrated for the Moto 360 Watch (OMAP3630 by TI). It compiles for Marshmallow, and I can run Marshmallow when I disable the hardware OpenGL.

    Under older revisions of the libraries provided by TI, there was a series of shared libraries (.so) similar to what appears to be provided for Linux, but the current Android library is just a static library (.a) file. I tried to use the older libraries provided by TI, but they are not compatible with Marshmallow. When I attempted to download the Android libriares, it isn’t clear to me to how to get the Marshmallow (and newer) libraries to interact with the Kernel driver.

    I know TI has dropped support for SGX drivers in Android, but I also know that Motorola seems to have done it for the Moto 360 Watch, so I am hoping someone might have some pointers.

    thank you,



    Hi Adam,

    I am sorry we cannot help you much with this issue as it is up to Motorola to support their own old devices. Have you tried contacting them?

    Best regards.
