I am attaching different textures to the same FBO so that I can render normals to one texture, light accumulation to the other an so on.
I ofcourse check for frame buffer completeness, glErrors etc and everything is fine on PC side. But on my android device (Galaxy S1 I9000), there is a huge rendering problem where this mechanism fails and does not throw any of the errors also (GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE is returned and no gl errors).
If I avoid doing this switching of attachments to the FBO (just render normals to a single attachment of the FBO) and go back to check, there are no rendering problems.
So at this point, I am not sure if there is a bug in my code or my device or PVR SDK. So I will email the apk file, screen shots of PC emulation for comparison. Please help by testing on other devices and/or providing suggestions to debug my problem.February 22, 2013 at 10:13 am #36728
This is a known issue in the 1.6 driver on the Galaxy S. You can work around it by using separate FBOs for each texture attachment.
Our OGLES2 DeferredShading Example implements a render in this way.

Thanks for your response. You gave me a huge relief 🙂
Does that mean, it only happens on Galaxy S1 or will it happen on S2 and S3 such phones ?
In this link,
it is said that using multiple FBO’s approach is slower. Can you specify if this is actually true and by how much ?
What all devices will I encounter this 1.6 driver ? Will this bee updated anytime soon ?
