Please keep in mind these are Developer options, and may be of no use, or have a negative impact on the performance of your device. Force GPU rendering The GPU is the Graphics Processing Unit. It's very much like the CPU, but instead of crunching numbers and taking care of tasks for the operating system and hardware, the GPU renders graphical information ...

When GPU rendering was first added, it was very unreliable. Sometimes it would be slower than software rendering, and there were some kinds of GUIs that it just couldn't work with. For this reason, it was up to the app developer to test their app with GPU rendering, and set an option in the app's manifest (the same place that it declares its permissions) to ...

Apparently X11 can be run on the G1 via some sort of Debian image and shell app; see this XDA thread for example. I can't find any other ports of it. I use ConnectBot for "regular" SSH, I find it to be quite good. Even edited and compiled code with it!

To quote from an XDA post: Enabling this preference in developer options offloads task of rendering window components like buttons, text and complex 2d graphics calculations to GPU. This often results in much faster UI rendering including animations. On one side you will definitely achieve better frame rate (and hence smooth experience) ...

I've stumbled upon an X server for Android project (now available as an APK to intall from F-Droid, too): This project implements an X11 server for use with Android devices, written in Java. The X11 server runs within an Android View subclass, allowing it to be embedded in other applications. But perhaps it's a bit tricky to connect to it through X ...

I'm not sure if it's part of a truly vanilla ICS build (though I think it may be), but the early CM9 and vanilla ICS builds I've played with all have a "Developer Options" entry in the main system settings. This contains several options which relate to overall graphics effects such as: Window animation scale: can be set to "off" to disable window ...

It gets the name of the Android OEM front end interface : Touchwiz for Samsung HTC Sense for HTC MotoBlur for Motorola ... For the "basic" version of Android - i.e. the version embedded in Nexus phones and tablets - people often refer to the Android version as "stock Android". So what about "stock Android UI" or "stock UI" in this case ?

There is an application called Infinite Design available in both free & paid versions. It will allow you to export to SVG for editing in your favorite graphics editor. It's been tested and works in Adobe Illustrator and Inkscape (paid version only). Free Version: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.brakefield.idfree Paid Version: https://...

I found my solution (had to cheat a little though) using Infinite Design. There doesn't seem to be an app that has a triangle shape tool. I had been using the line tool to draw the triangle, but it just wouldn't recognize it as a closed shape so when I used the fill tool it colored the entire layer. So I went on Google and found a triangle png, imported it ...

There's an App called "App Settings" for Xposed Framework. repo.xposed/appsettings With it you can change orientation, dpi, notifications, etc. of each individual app. But not the boot animation like samnaction explained. Alternatively, i found this on stackoverflow: changing-android-device-orientation-with-adb So you could make a script like this #!/...

Um, How about Photoshop Touch? Might be a tad expensive for your needs, but it is essentially a toned-down, mobile edition of the Adobe product. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.adobe.pstouch Of course, if you really want it but can't fork out the dough, there's always downloading the apk (but you didn't hear it from me, developers ...

I was able to replicate your issue. You need to disable hardware acceleration in Developer Options. This step is for the Samsung Galaxy S4, but you should be able to find something similar for your tablet: Settings > More > Developer Options > Force GPU rendering.

So you are asking about a native Android X server? That's the only article on a native X11 I found so far. All others seem to work with VNC somehow. Not sure how the current state of the linked project is, as I could find no additional information (yet).

Samsung elected not to include all the texture compression formats when they integrated the Mali-400 GPU into the Exynos chip that powers the Galaxy S II. This is because some formats are patented and would require Samsung to pay a fee to the patent-holder to support them. Because the S II was the first high-end phone not to support these formats, most game ...
