GLTools (graphics optimizer) 1.29 APK [XDA Edition]

A brand new custom OpenGL driver (proxy), please read the app Description below. Download GLTools (graphics optimizer) 1.29 Xda full apk and optimize graphics, fake Gpu and much more.

Requirements: Android 2.2 and up (Root - Read Description below)
Size: 2.7MB
Rating: 4.6/5
Type: Tools

"This turned my phone into a low to mid range gamin machine. On n.o.v.a. 3 the lowest I get is 18 fps while remains steady in 28 fps. I have a whacked out phone so I am totally satisfied with this purchase." -Osoro

"Needs more features like disabling shaders and controlling particle count etc. Actually a "target fps" would be great, but I don't think it's possible without the risk of accidentally not displaying game critical objects." -Trevor

"This Keeps Bricking my Device i Click install then a black Screen Appears, then if i try to Soft reset it, it Just Gets stuck on Google Boot logo Edit: No matter which way I install it I get stuck on boot logo after I have to completely reinstall android." -Michael

**** Root and a writable /system partition are required! Please, read the description completely! ****

GLTools is a custom OpenGL driver (proxy), that is compatible with any known OpenGLES 2.0-compatible GPU + ARM processor, x86 processors are not supported (Galaxy Tab 3 for example). If you still don't understand, what this app is, the closest known analog is Chainfire3D.
Features list:
- Change resolution and rendering bitness in any app, even if it doesn't support that by default.
- Change GPU name and enjoy enhanced graphics even on a noname low-end GPU.
- Take full control over textures: now you can decompress/recompress them (even if your GPU doesn't support that texture format) and resize. Note that decompression feature is available only if you'll install a plugin (internet is required to do that)
- Optimize shaders on-the-fly for optimal performance (the same optimizer is used in Unity3D engine by default)
- Enable MSAA or CSAA in any app to improve graphics quality (make sure that your GPU supports that)
- Measure gained performance with a nice onscreen FPS counter (or you can output FPS information to Logcat if you are a pro)

GLTools is 100% safe if you have a custom recovery installed (and you didn't disable backup in GLTools install dialog), if you'll find it non-working, you can just flash in recovery and email me with details (or request a refund).

Tested on:
- HTC One X
- Nexus 7 2013
- LG G2

Failed on:
- Some Samsung devices (random). The lowest success rate is with SGN3 and SGS4 (thx to Knox). Installing a custom kernel can help, this problem is firmware-related. The same for Lenovo devices.

What’s new in version 1.29
It is not 100% stable, so contact author for any questions! (
Binary hotfix.
Added Android L support.
Fixed Android 2.2 support.
Fixed Samsung KNOX support (partially).
Made license checking more permissive to avoid Samsung-related problems.
Added new plugin API support.
sRGB hotfix.
Guess what is now supported.
Added emulation options: now some features can not only be faked but also emulated.

Download GLTools 1.29 (XDA) APK:



Install Instructions:
-Install gltools
(Note: Enable backup option in the app in case something goes wrong. a cwm flashable zip which can uninstall gltools will be formed)
-Open app. then give root access and install tex plugin (and not none otherwise this app wont work how its supposed to)
-Reboot the phone
-Open app. a list of apps installed will come up
-Select ur app (gta 3 for me)
-Check on enable custom setting
-Tick force 16 bit rendering
-Tick optimize glsl shaders
-Set enable texture decomp. to all (to incr quality otherwise set to none)
-Set enable texture recomp. to none
-Set downscale textures to 0.5 and check if it still lags make 0.25x(anything below that will make text unreadable)
-I also faked gpu info though it may not be needed (i did adreno 320)
-In gta 3 display setting i minimised the resolution and draw distance disabled frame limiter
-Now the game is very smooth (textures are blurred and graphics are low)
Please do share ur own config for any game u
manage to make smooth (or make it run if it
wasnt earlier)
These settings are not always ideal. Do try
combinations yourself
That would be all from my side.

Use and Basic Instructions:
The App may seem complicated but with a bit of patience u can get it to work nice.
Have u ever felt that your gpu (graphic processor) isnt upto the mark?
Have u ever wanted a tegra game but u have a adreno gpu?
Have u ever encountered Graphical errors such as black objects and .....?
Game running slow but u havent got a game booster?
Want to decrease visual quality for better performance?
Want Chainfire3D to work on jellybean?
All these questions can be answered using this app "Gltools".
It can fake gpu so u can play a tegra(and other
gpu) exclusive game on any poorly known GPU's.
U can also fake CPU(havent personally tried it..
U can decrease Visual Quality of a game to increase performance.
U can have an onscreen FPS counter.
And the last few of the many options are some fixes and alternatives.
(Dont be ashamed to point out any critical points
I've missed or any errors I've made in my post)
Instructions(Settings are Mainly intended for low
end devices)
