Poco F2 Pro is a rebranded version of Redmi K30 Pro which receive the GPU updates through the app, provided by Xiaomi in the app store. Question is, why is POCO F2 Pro not receiving these updates and there is no such app for POCO F2 Pro? Anyone from the GLOBAL Rom team answer please.

same question here

This is going to be a bit tricky for Global ROM as the update must be passed through via Google Playstore.

What Adreno Graphics Drivers do?
Fully release the potential of GPU to continuously improve gaming experience. The main functions are optimize the GPU driver to game performance and stability. Including OpenGL and Vulkan optimizations.

How many processors are supported?
Currently, a total of 31 different processors are supported.

Can you help me with the installation?
Of course, let's proceed step by step. Also you can reach the required notes by typing the following commands in the chat section.

1 - Soc List
First, you should download the Device HW Info application on Google Play and learn the platform processor information from the system tab. Remember, you have to choose the drivers you will use according to the platform information. You can also access application link by typing #cpu_checker in the group chat section.

Then you can check the processor you are using from the list below. Don't worry if your processor is not listed, you can contact the dev.

Adreno 600 Series:
  • sd865
  • sd855/sd855+
  • sd845
  • sd765g
  • sd730/sd730g
  • sd720/sd720g
  • sd710/sd712
  • sd675
  • sd665
If your processor isn't listed here, don't worry! There is also a thread for the Adreno 500 series.

2 - Driver Packages
Then you can choose the package you will install from the list below. Remember that each package has its own characteristics.

OpenGL and Vulkan (both in one) - Recommended
  • It contains both OpenGL and Vulkan drivers, Do not install any other driver modules with this package.

OpenGL
  • It contains only OpenGL drivers, this package and Vulkan package must be installed separately.
  • OpenGL should be installed in the first step, Vulkan should be installed in the second step.

OpenGL lite
  • It contains only OpenGL lite drivers, this package and Vulkan package must be installed separately.
  • This package specially designed for those who have bootloop, black screen, flickering screen and google play application problems and some branded devices like OnePlus, LG, Sony, Realme.
  • OpenGL lite should be installed in the first step, Vulkan should be installed in the second step.

Vulkan
  • It contains only Vulkan drivers, this package and OpenGL or OpenGL lite package must be installed separately.
  • OpenGL or OpenGL lite should be installed in the first step, Vulkan should be installed in the second step.

3 - Driver Versions
Do you need information about the versions of the drivers? Let's take a look at the version information. Version information contained in the zip file such as v1.0 is only for determining the version of the zip file. My advice is always use the most up-to-date.

Adreno 600 Series:

OpenGL and Vulkan
  • V@0481.0 - 1.1.128 (v5.0) - only for sd865 and sd765g with Android 11 roms!
  • V@0472.0 - 1.1.128 (v4.5) - Avaiable soon!
  • V@474.0 - 1.1.128 (v4.3) - only for sd865 and sd765g
  • V@464.0 rev2 - 1.1.128 (v3.4)

OpenGL
  • V@0481.0 (v5.0) - only for sd865 and sd765g with Android 11 roms!
  • V@0472.0 (v4.5) - Avaiable soon!
  • V@474.0 (v4.3) - only for sd865 and sd765g
  • V@464.0 rev2 (v3.4)

OpenGL lite
  • V@0472.0 (v4.5) - Avaiable soon!
  • V@464.0 rev2 (v3.4)

Vulkan
  • 1.1.128 (v5.0) - only for sd865 and sd765g with Android 11 roms!
  • 1.1.128 (v4.5) - Avaiable soon!
  • 1.1.128 (v4.3) - only for sd865 and sd765g
  • 1.1.128 (v3.4)

4 - Installation Methods
Then you have to decide which installation method to choose. My advice is primarily the flashable method. The numbers 1 to 2 at the beginning of the files are for specifying the installation methods.

[1] Magisk Module (systemless)
  • Support for Android 9 and above operating system.
  • If it cause any problem, you can get rid of the problem by disabling or removing the module via Magisk manager application or by deleting the Adreno folder in /data/adb/modules/ via custom recovery.

[2] New Flashable (via custom recovery)
  • Support for Android 9 and above operating system.
  • If it cause any problem, the system backup or rom must be reinstalled.
  • treble/non-treble support with a single zip.

5 - Installation (How To Install)
Be careful, my suggestion is always use flashable installation!

Thank you very much for the video of How To Install by the Soap - Customization and Gaming YouTube Channel. Also don't forget to subscribe!

Flashable installation:
  • First of download both in one package drivers or separated OpenGL/lite and Vulkan drivers. You can access download links by typing #downloads in the group chat section.
  • Boot into recovery
  • Just in case backup your system and vendor partitions to an external device
  • Install the drivers
  • Wipe dalvik cache
  • Reboot into system
  • Download OpenGL ES Extensions app and check if your version of OpenGL and Vulkan drivers has changed

For root, after you boot into the rom, you can go back to recovery and install latest Magisk Canary build by typing #magisk_canary in the group chat section.

Magisk module installation: Required latest Magisk Canary build!
  • First of download both in one package drivers or separated OpenGL/lite and Vulkan drivers with GPU cache cleaner scrpit. You can access download links by typing #downloads and #gpu_cache_cleaner in the group chat section.
  • Install the drivers via Magisk manager
  • Boot into recovery
  • Install GPU cache cleaner script
  • Wipe dalvik cache
  • Reboot into system
  • Download OpenGL ES Extensions app and check if your version of OpenGL and Vulkan drivers has changed

Troubleshoot Guide
Having trouble after installing the drivers? Here are the problems and solutions we know.

Bootloop, black screen, screen flickering and app application problems.
  • This problem is usually caused by the GPU caches not being cleaned. You can solve this problem by installing the script via recovery. You can reach download link by typing #gpu_cache_cleaner in the chat section.
  • You can also try installing the separated OpenGL lite package specially designed for such problems with separated Vulkan package. You can access driver packages by typing #driver_package in the group chat section.

Bootloop problem after Magisk module installation.
  • First you need to clear the GPU caches.
  • You can also try installing the separated OpenGL lite package specially designed for such problems with separated Vulkan package. You can access driver packages by typing #driver_package in the group chat section.
  • If the problem still persists, it is most likely due to the Magisk stable builds. You should uninstall the drivers and install the Magisk canary builds via recovery. Then you can re-install the drivers via the new Magisk canary manager. You can access Magisk canary stuffs by typing #magisk_canary in the group chat section.

I installed the drivers but my OpenGL or Vulkan version hasn't changed?
  • The main reason for this problem is that some devices are different from the hardware processor information that the platform processor information uses.
  • The solution to the problem is very simple. You should download the Device HW Info application on Google Play and learn the platform processor information from the system tab. Remember, you have to choose the drivers you will use according to the platform information. You can also access application link by typing #cpu_checker in the group chat section.
  • If the problem still persists, it is most likely due to the Magisk stable builds. You should uninstall the drivers and install the Magisk canary builds via recovery. Then you can re-install the drivers via the new Magisk canary manager. You can access Magisk canary stuffs by typing #magisk_canary in the group chat section.

If you experience a different problem than the listed issues, please contact the dev within XDA or admins within the group.

Thank you for the detail reply and the methods to install the drivers. But, this should be done by the MIUI update right? or through a play-store app as in case of REDMI K30 Pro. why do we, global users, have to install through other ways when company is providing update to one phone and forgetting the same  on the global market level?
