I have various Android devices, rooted, with version ranging from Android 4.1 to Android 6.0. I want to enable 4x MSAA using shell/ADB.

The code below is used to enable Hardware Overlay through a shell script

service call SurfaceFlinger 1008 i32 1

But is there a way to enable 4x MSAA?


Run this command:

adb shell setprop debug.egl.force_msaa true

To disable, replace true with false.

Tested on OnePlus 6 running Android 10.

  • You are awesome!!! It works in all versions of android. At least from 4.1.2 to 10 Jul 18 '20 at 13:46
  • Good to know that. And thanks for the input about its usefulness on other Android versions. :-)
